Parker Animal & Bird Clinic
We have been going to Parker animal and bird clinic for over 20 years. When we moved to Plano in 1994 we brought our dogs and cats to the clinic for treatment on a regular basis. Dr. Blonion is "the boss". He runs the show. He sets the standard for excellence. He is also known as the cat whisperer. You have to see this to believe it! He has a connection with cats that I cannot describe.Dr. Whetstone, is our primary veterinarian today regarding ongoing care for our two aging dogs one of which has Addison's disease. We find our treatment to be beyond just caring. The staff as well as the doctor show a love of animals in all dealings that we have observed.I will admit that there are times when we have been told things that we did not want to hear but, in perfect hindsight they were being good stewards and looking out for the well-being of both the pet owner and the animals. I can think of no other organization or group of people that have such an ingrained love of animals than Parker animal and bird clinic. Regarding the comments about monetary issues with holding treatment, in over 20 years I have never seen anything except the absolute opposite! There were times when we were either not in town or The financial pain of a very large expense would be harmful to our young family. The animals always received the very best treatment and discounts were given as well as payment arrangements were made when necessary. No problems, ever!You must be an advocate for yourself and your animal. You must always communicate your concerns clearly with the attending veterinarian. If you do not feel that you are being heard or understood, asked to speak with someone else. These are human beings Great compassion and caring. Their desire is to do the right thing but there are times when just like the rest of us things can get overwhelming. Understand that they too can make mistakes but not out of malice or lack of caring. I will never believe that.I give my complete endorsement and recommendation to Parker animal and bird clinic and their staff and veterinarians.

I am continually amazed of the high level of dedication to wellness that Dr. Greenwell and his Staff hold. I have been a client for over seven years and have never seen them waiver from their commitment to caring for our dogs (aka children) ....not one bit! Understanding Dr. Greenwell over this time, I know him to be a perfectionist and he most certainly takes his job home with him. He strives to treat & cure absolutely anything that comes into his office and this level of passion is compounded by his staff. I am committed to my dogs at just about the same level as my children and not for one second would I compromise my children's health using an inferior doctor nor would I for my dogs! Dr. Greenwell and Staff.....they leave NO STONE UNTURNED!!!

I'm shocked at some of these other reviews. My black lab is nearing the end and has severe hip issues and pain and this clinic and it's staff has always been pleasant and expressed concern and care in regards to not only our lab but our other 2 younger dogs as well. It is very busy most of the time but I see that as a good thing. Their prices are all also super reasonable compared to other vets. They have been very understanding of the fact that my dog is older and never try to charge me for anything that's not necessary which is very appreciated. I will continue to have my other dogs seen here even after my lab, Max, passes on.

I have gone to Parker Animal and Bird Clinic for 20 years and in that time, they've treated two cats and two dogs of ours. This veternarian office is extremely popular and BUSY for two reasons. They are affordable and they do care about animals. We moved about 15 miles away so I tried going to closer vets in Dallas and ended up paying nearly double for shots and treatments. We make the drive back to Plano now.

Dr. Carver is the best vet I have ever gone to. I have two bulldogs and both have had their share of problems and Dr. Carver has helped us through them all. He did an amazing job on one of their cherry eye surgeries and the other had life threatening pneumonia which Dr. Carver met us at 8pm one night to allow him to sleep in the oxygen chamber. I refuse to take my puppies to any other doctor.

I can never speak highly enough about the care, service, and consideration I receive from everyone at Russell Creek!! I can't imagine what Darby's life would have been like without Dr. Greenwell and his great team of technicians and staff. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!!!

We love this vet! The doctor and staff are so friendly and knowledgable and there's never a wait. They do require cash or check payment, but with this "low tech" approach they seem to pass the savings on to their customers because their prices are VERY reasonable.

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
