Long Drive Dog & Cat Hospital
We've been coming to this clinic since it was a small little building. The staff is nice and helpful. I don't know why people complain, they probably have attitudes with the staff or something. Well aside from the staff being nice and helpful, the doctors there are great, IF you know who to choose. I've had the same 2 doctors for years, great amazing people. And they scolded us too about feeding our pets human food. But hey you know what? They are right, human food is very bad for your pets, so if your dog/cat is dying and your too stubborn to stop spoiling it with human food well then its probably your fault its dying in the first place. They saved our 10 year old chihuahua who had failing kidneys, she is still with us thanks to them. And for those who lost pets, do not blame a vet for being terse and uncaring. They are vets, do you want them to lie and say "She'll live." instead of hurting your feelings by saying "She won't make it."? Honestly, losing a pet is terrible, but don't say they're "uncaring" just because they won't give a dozen roses and a tearful apology. I would recommend this place. And if your unsure just go and check it out. Its more of a Hispanic place so if people that complained about this place aren't Hispanic then their reviews do not surprise me. Also, my dog got Parvo when he was about a year old. If they had been the terrible uncaring, doctors people said they were, then my dog wouldn't be 5 years old and crazy today.

Banfield Pet Hospital
First off, I had scheduled a same day appointment for Morgan, who is a collie mix,older... Not only did they schedule it for the same day, but they also squeezed in my other dog, Daphne, a Rottweiler/Lab mix. Daphne is not very social but after getting to know you will love you forever. From the moment we walked in the door the receptionist welcomed us, greeted the dogs then went to get them a water bowl. Daphne was comfortable, yet excited. As a matter of fact, other professionals came up to greet us and introduced themselves to all of us. This is one of the few times I haven't had to worry about either dog barking or becoming defensive. The staff was wonderful and worked around my schedule even in such short notice. The girls needed vaccinations and I was up against a time crunch because I was boarding the dogs and needed to take care of this anyway. They're both very spoiled indoor dogs whom I absolutely adore and love with all my heart. For the first time in years I'm going on vacation and cannot bring my babies with me. This will be the first time we've been apart for a day much less a week lol. But just wanted to thank the staff and anyone looking for a affordable yet professional clinic to take your pet I would highly recommend the folks at Banfield. I smiled the whole time I was there.

Long Drive Dog & Cat Hospital
I have been taking my pets to Dr. Shelby and his staff for over 20 years. I see some reviews that say that this clinic is uncaring but believe me, this is far from the truth. I am so sorry that these people had a bad experience but obviously all of the facts are not told in those reviews. The staff is BUSY since this clinic is always packed but they have always been courteous to me and those that have been in the clinic with me at the time I am there. I have sat waiting for testing results many times and observed their customer service techniques. They are sweet, compassionate people who see so much ugliness come off the streets. Having to deal with people who don't realize that pets are living creatures who deserve good vet treatment. They see neglect, abuse, apathy... They take all of this in stride and do the best they can to see that every pet is taken care of and every customer is satisfied to the best of their ability. Dr. Shelby is THE BEST and his staff a close second. They will not sugar coat things and yes, they tell you like it is. People need to leave their sensitivity behind when it comes to the well being of their pets. We need to hear the truth about our pets so that we can be better pet owners.

South Belt Animal Hospital
I LOVE South Belt Animal Hospital. I brought 2 dogs I found on the street here to get them checked out in October last year. The staff and vet were all so friendly and explained all the test results, even letting me look through the microscope to see what was going on. I got all vaccines done and prescriptions for medications they needed. They gave all sorts of reccomendations for things I asked about. I have been back twice since then for health concerns with one of the dogs. They got me in ASAP and even sat us in the room early when I arrived earlier than my appointment. It is always in and out but I never leave with a question un answered. They are open Saturdays which works great with my work schedule and always give me a follow up call to make sure my dogs are doing ok. An added bonus is the cream cheese dipped treats they give at the beginning and end of the appointments, they know how to spoil the doggies! I work at a dental office close by and always reccomend my patients here. If you are looking for a clean, nice, and affordable vet then this is your place!

VCA Ashford Animal Hospital
After taking my cat to other places and him not getting better after 2 and a half months I decided to try out VCA animal hospital. My cat barely ate and kept vomiting. I couldn't make him eat and he lost over 7 pounds. I was terrified for his life and felt like no one could help me. When Dr. Trlica took a look at him she automatically knew what was wrong. She said we need to do an ultrasound because she thinks that my cat ate something. She was right, there was a foreign object in his intestine. The next morning she preformed the surgery and I got to take him back in 3 days. He is eating now and gaining wait. Slowly he is recovering from everything that happened to him and I couldn't be happier to have my baby at home with me! Thanks to VCA animal hospital my cat is alive ( other people were suggesting to put him down). The staff and veterinarians here are amazing. The communication is great, Dr. T still calls to check up on my kitty to make sure he is doing well. The best vet place I had ever been too! If you love your animals you will take them here!

Bellaire Richmond Pet Hospital
I have been taking my dog here for almost a year now and they are wonderful! The staff and the veterinarians are all friendly and compassionate. My puppy had 2 sets of shots and needed the 3rd set, so we did not take her outside and she still got Parvo (from our shoes I am sure). I called and spoke to Dr Kennedy and he said sure bring her on in. She was very dehydrated and wouldn't eat or drink for 2 days. Within 3 days of fluids, antibiotics and care my baby girl was almost back to her old self! The staff and vets here saved her life and no amount of money could ever repay what I owe them. Dr Kennedy is a very sweet, and understanding doctor. Wonderful! Doctor White is the same. I have had my puppy in the office since then and Dr White does not insist on a bunch of unnecessary test to care for my dog. The office waiting area and rooms are clean and bright. They always handle my baby girl with care. I will never take my dog anywhere else!I

Clay Road Animal Clinic
My 13 year old cat had pain in his mouth and after reading all the great reviews for this company I decided to take my cat to this facility. They located a lump in his mouth and I was advised it was either feline himotitis or possible cancer. They provided a dose of steroid and a antibiotic. 36 hours later my cat had severe breathing issues due to fluid from the medication filling up his lungs and he very sadly passed away. I then called the clinic and left a voicemail to let them know to cancel the follow up appt due my cat passing away. They never called back with any condolences which I was not shocked as I am sure they knew it was the medication that killed him. I am tremendously dissapointed with all of this as I am sure you know that these animals we own are truly are family. May you all please be cautious and ask the vets a it all possible risks when they provide medication to your animals. Sadly I learned the hard way.. Take care

South Belt Animal Hospital
I live in Katy and our Caucasian Shepherd, which is a rare breed, got so ill. and took him to emergency care NHVS in katy. They gave me a huge bill but, did nothing. and he started to get very ill. and I was helpless. A friend referred me to South Belt Animal Hospital and as soon as I explained the symptoms, Dr. Boppana knew what was going on and he ran proper tests and diagnosed the problem within minutes, gave proper treatment and saved our pets life. with so much care and love. Today, our Hannibal (his name) is alive because of Dr. Boppana. Thank you so much. :-) I give up on all the other places. NHVS, Banfield, and few other places. They all so very commercial and just care for money. Even though it's an hour drive, I will only trust Dr. Boppana. Not only quality service but, also extremely reasonable. I really hope they open another branch in Katy.

St. Francis Animal Hospital & Resort
When we moved from Houston a month ago, our biggest concern was about being able to find the kind of veterinarian and boarding care for our dog that we got at St. Francis Animal Hospital. First of all, Dr. Sherry Corona is a fantastic doctor. Our dog, Bella, is aging, and Dr. Corona picked up on some major health issues that no other vet picked up. The care Dr. Corona and her staff gave extended to us, Bella's parents, as well. She would be sure to check in every now and then to make sure Bella was doing okay. Dr. Corona is the rare type of doctor who gets involved in the life of her patient. And the staff is equally as caring. The facilities are top-notch. You won't find anything like it elsewhere, I guarantee it! You will not be disappointed. Oh, one more thing - Dr. Corona will not nickle and dime you. I told you, she's rare.

West Oaks Animal Hospital
They were extremely nice and caring, and very well-educated. They examined my new, formerly stray, 7 week old kitten. They tested her for worms, any possible diseases, and helped me learn how to trim her nails. They also laid out a clear development plan for my kitten, explaining how I should expect to see her developing and what to do in each stage of her development. The plan was communicated to me extremely well, and helped me greatly as a first time young kitten owner. The veterinarian was honest and did not try to con me into paying for unnecessary products or treatments, which has happened to me with different vets in the past with different pets. The cost of the visit was very reasonable, and cheaper than other vets would have been.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
