I'm not big on negative reviews but people need to know....our Rottie, a very sweet non-aggressive girl, started limpinge and went off food. We took her in and without an examination, he immediately diagnosed her with hip dysplasia. He would not listen, insisted he was right, and said he needed to sedate her and do x-rays, plus keep her for a full day....this would have cost me over $500.I took her to Dan McBride's office in Burnet and with one quick exam by Dr. Atkinson and Dr. Kyle, it was discovered she had a torn ligament over the knee cap. No x-ray or sedation...just an exam. We have a repair surgery next week.Isom never touched our girl and charged over $100 for the appointment. There used to be an older gentleman there who was very good but now he is gone. I don't trust a vet who doesn't examine the patient. Since when did veterinarIan's get in it just for the money????Just saying, McBride's in Burnet was AMAZING...and the appointment cost us $60. That's a REAL vet.

This establishment use to be the best and the doctors still may, but the front desk does bait and switch and have lost the family mentality. First tell you to come in on standby the when you get there 30 minutes before close say yes you got here but we will only see 2 of your dog's after driving 30 miles and charge you emergency feed. And to add insult didn't want to receive evidence that the font staff was providing miss information to the public causing undo fear.

Normally I don't bother to give bad reviews, I just don't use the person or business' service any more, HOWEVER! For those of you who might be considering using these people.We took our dog in for a routine dental cleaning and they totally destroyed my faith in them. Her neck was bruised and swollen and she had pockets of fluid in her neck and legs, like a water balloon. I called after hours to see what to do and they don't do anything for you after hours, they refer you to someone in KILLEEN! I left 2 messages and an email. The next morning they called back but it was not in reference to my messages , just a routine call. They all seemed to think it was no big deal. "Let us know if it gets worse" WHATEVER. You people will NEVER touch my dog again! This vet has seen the last of my dog and my money, which is all I think they care about anyway. (the money) If I could include a picture here I would. Her neck was PURPLE! She only weighs 4 pounds. I don't think they had to strong arm her. They obviously have someone that is lacking in care or consideration.

Absolutely love this vet. Would tell anyone to use. Taken in two strays and had them both treated here and was very happy. Very good with the animals and reasonable on cost. I drive 45 minutes to get there passing a bunch of vets on the way. Well worth the drive.
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
