    Riverside Veterinary Clinic
    There really are no adequate words to describe how amazing Dr. Meyer is. He has cared for many of our pets---and their humans!---over the years with great skill, compassion, and honesty. After my father's beloved cat Puddy became ill shortly after Dad's passing, Dr. Meyer kept him comfortable and superbly cared for right up until the end. It was a very difficult time for me on many fronts and Doc was so incredibly kind during our weekly visits. Rob and all of the staff are also wonderful. We've moved away from Austin, but my grand dogs remain patients of the clinic.

    WARNING! My dog went into cardiac arrest under the care of Dr. Knight. DO NOT bring your dog here. My Pug, Coco, went in for surgery to have bladder stones removed. No one said the surgery would be riskier than normal surgery or suggested seeing a specialist. I got a call that she had gone into cardiac arrest while trying to be intubated but they were able to resuscitate her. However, her heart stopped for an estimated 4-5 minutes. I rushed there and was taken to the back where she was lying on a table connected to machines with a large tube in her mouth and her tongue stretched out attached to another machine. About 8 feet away the staff was having a meeting. Now I understand that space is limited but they were loudly cracking jokes, laughing, and clapping during this meeting. I'm back here crying my eyes out petting my dying dog while they're are clapping and joking! I am still shocked at the insensitivity to what was taking place right behind them. Eventually they said we needed to go home or wait in a room while they tried to flip Coco over onto her other side. We said we'd wait because I felt they would let us go out and see her again after they flipped her. When I had first arrived and she saw me she was wagging her tail. But they never allowed us to go see her again. We just sat in the room for 3.5 hours. We got 2 updates during the 3.5 hours we waited. The first update was to tell us there had been no change and started crying again and said I just can't believe this is happening because she was fine other than the stones. Dr. Knight offered no sympathy and said well surgery is always a risk and you can't know what to expect. The last update Dr. Knight walked in and said Coco's not doing better and we're about to close so you can either euthanize her here or attempt to drive her north to AVES but she might die in your car on the way. Even though another doctor gave his opinion that Coco had a 50/50 chance of making it, Dr. Knight could not be inconvenienced to stay a little after closing to care for my dog. As we're trying to frantically decide what decision we should make a staff member comes in and says we need to take care of payment but don't worry because the actual cost of surgery isn't included since they never got to make an incision. We choose to give Coco a chance and drove her to AVES. They bring her out the side of the building and put her in my arms. She's got the tube still down her throat and is gasping for air. We drove 45 minutes in rush hour traffic with my door dog gasping for air in my lap. I will never be able to get this image out of my head. Once we arrived at AVES the care and concern was completely different. We were seen numerous times while we waited with updates. They did not rush us and took time to answer all of our questions. They also did so with compassion. In the end Coco didn't make it, but AVES did a wonderful job of helping us through the situation. It was night and day compared to South Park Animal Hospital. South Park Animal Hospital never called once to check in or offer any sympathy or remorse for what transpired under their care. I should also mention that I had taken Coco in for pre-surgery labs a week prior to surgery. We got a call Monday before her surgery that they had messed up and not checked what they were supposed to and we had to bring her back in the day before surgery to get the labs redone.

    RESEARCH PET & BIRD HOSPITAL
    They are outrageously expensive, but they're expensive because they have all the latest equipment. They're very, very competent I guess. They're always happy to go there. My dogs get very excited when we go to the vet.

    They charge per day. They were with my vet, so I didn't have to worry about anything going on. My two boys got in a fight because I told them to keep them together. One got all tore up, so he also got some medial done to him. He deserved it, he's a pushy little dog, he's little. I've got a Hound dog and a little cocker spaniel. He pushed my Hound too far and finally he fought back and did some damage. They have been my vet for 35 years. They did good. They are outrageously expensive, but they're expensive because they have all the latest equipment.

    The vet tech (had to ask to find out their role) who started checking in my dog was pleasant and professional except for not introducing herself and telling me her position. She was taking vital signs, getting ready to draw blood,etc and I didn't know if she was a new vet, a vet tech, vet student or who was about to do invasive procedure on my dog until I asked if they were a vet tech. They were asking me if I wanted to sign up for a plan that was pretty comprehensive for $69/month and would cover chest xray and other things that my dog doesn't need. (that comes to a whopping $828 per year!) My dog is not exposed to others and was just there for well exam and yearly checks/ vaccines. Even at that the charge for basic vaccines including 3 year rabies, heartworm test, fecal was a whopping $266!!! I called another vet today to see what they charge and it was only $150 for the same thing. These vets are very good, however, they were recently bought out by VCA and prices have now almost doubled! insane! On top of that, they no longer collect the fecal - which I was charged $56 for, they give you a specimen cup and you have to collect it and bring it back. They then send it off, and they call you back the next day with results (except they didn't call me yet and it has been two days so far). This is a test that they used to do themselves in house that took 10 minutes and used to cost $15! This is a case of Big Company buying out good vet to financially rape their clients and make big cash) I am happy for the vets - they are wonderful and competent but as a client - if you like to watch your budget, don't go there. :-( I will miss them!

    Feather and Fur Animal Hospital
    Dr Blatt is awesome! I have used him many years and he is a great vet. However, when the practice was bought out by VCA last year, they turned it into a money gouger... a fecal exam that they used to collect there in the office and run right away would cost maybe $25 and you would leave knowing the results. Now you get charged like $56, you have to collect it yourself and bring it back to the clinic within an hour or two of collection- or keep it in a baggie in your refrigerator. When you bring it back, they then send it off and the results come back in about a week. The first dog I did they didnt even call me the results. I had to call them back and they looked it up and called me results later. Not good service for about double the bill. They also have these high dollar programs that they encourage you to sign up for - costing hundreds of dollars. You get a chest xray included... well - my dog and probably YOUR dog don't need chest xrays just to get one. It is not a test that should be used as just a yearly screening exam. Anyway, it is all about making money there now. I am sad as I have loved Dr Blatt and know he is a great surgeon and competent vet - it is a loss I am sorry to say.

    LAKELINE ANIMAL CARE
    Fine but we learned that the vet practice had recently been sold to VCA and we did not like that since we first started coming to Lakeline because our old vet was sold to VCA and the care went downhill after the sale.

    He spent a lot of time with us and the Vet rather than the actual tech.  They answered all of our questions very well.  I didn't have to wait.  They had a lot of questions about the dog and we gave them the information and they gave us the medication and what not.  Also we will be taking him there in the future.

    I use Banfield. It is through PetSmart.��� It���s not insurance, but you pay a monthly fee and it covers certain things and the dental is covered. It���s called a Wellness Plan. It covers 2 exams per year and a dental cleaning per year.
