    Tomball Pet Resort has a GREAT obedience trainer. PJ was comfortable (and a little spoiled) while staying at the Boarding Kennel - which is actually more like the name: Pet Resort. PJ came home happy, well cared for and well mannered. We are so Thankful.

    My dogs and I love this place! They have boarded here many times and always run to the staff Ike meeting old friends again. Pets & Moore takes great, loving care of the animals. You can't go wrong here!

    We have a dog who is shy and nervous with strangers. They were WONDERFUL with him. They sent 2 videos in the time we were gone with a description of how he was doing. When we returned, some of his "issues" were all gone!!! Yea! The people there all knew him and obviously cared about him. We will take him back there again - even though it is a drive for us, it is WELL worth it. We also would highly recommend Megan for training. We have had a couple of sessions with her and can say enough good about her. She gave us practical instruction on how to work with our dog and we saw improvement. She was willing to work with our specific needs and tailor a solution to them.

    They were good but I found out later that they weren't doing some things right. They always came out to the car to carry the cat for me. They were good on the phone and everything was good except I thought the prices were outrageous. They were very punctual and you didn't have to wait.

    The dogs arrive at Frandy Oaks and are greeted warmly and are well-cared for. They observe them carefully and will give advice (if asked) about vaccines, care, etc. They keep track of their immunizations and let me know if one of them needs a vaccine before the next visit. I truly can't think of any negative experiences that I've ever had with them in the last five or six years they've been caring for my pets.

    Went great. Dropped the big dog off in the morning so that everything that needed to be done to him could be done. The other 3 went in the afternoon for their annuals. All went well. Animals were are treated with love and respect.

    Living in San Marcos, for my 13-year old Shih-Tzu, I went to a Veterinary Ophthalmologist in San Antonio who recommended surgery for one eye (cataract), and eye removal for the other eye (glaucoma). I would have had no decision in the matter, once surgery had begun, as I had to sign a contract leaving the decision of eye removal up to the dr (at a cost of $2,250-$3,250, depending on which option he chose, once my doggie was under anesthesia for the cataract surgery). Although I understand the rationale, to do both procedures if all was going well, so as to not have to undergo surgery and anesthesia again, I was not feeling OK about the eye removal at all. There seemed to be no room for discussion, no options offered. This was an expensive specialist clinic (E. Sonterra Blvd)--over $600 for that one visit.
    I sought another opinion. I saw Dr. Shifrin, also a Veterinary Ophthalmologist, whom I had seen back in 2010 for an immature cataract in the eye that now had glaucoma. Although I might have done surgery at that time, he did not recommend it, and convinced me that she had one good eye, and that if she started to have problems in that good eye, I could then return to discuss the options.
    Now that the good eye is getting cloudy, and I had gotten the extreme and expensive option from the San Antonio dr, I went to Dr. Shifrin for a second opinion.
    He did a thorough and exhaustive exam. Although he agreed in general with the diagnosis, his options were far less extreme. He told me, as the San Antonio dr did not, that she had only 10% cataract in that eye, and had quite a lot of vision (90%!) in that eye and, although she has no vision in the (glaucoma) eye, he gave me options for medications to preserve her vision in the cataract eye and increase the comfort of the glaucoma eye, thus preventing surgery. She is 13 years old, and the risk of something going wrong was acknowledged by both, but the San Antonio dr minimized it, merely covering his back by including it in the contract. He seemed less inclined to consider my wishes, and more inclined to proceed with a very expensive surgery. That reminds me of the maxim: most surgeons will opt to do what they have been trained for: surgery.
    Dr. Shifrin, although stating that he was interested in making money as well, advised me to go the conservative route. I will give her drops for both eyes, continue to go for check-ups, and he will monitor her condition.
    With the meds he prescribed (3 were the same, but different dosages, but the 4th, cataract Rx--was different), I noticed that her vision in the cataract eye seemed to respond to the Rx he gave her in his office, that I will now pick up at my pharmacy in San Marcos, and continue that treatment. He charged me $75 for that appointment (plus about $100 total for refills and the new med). I paid $300 at the San Antonio clinic for an exam (ERG) for which Dr. Shifrin charges $180.
    I am much happier, and I believe my little pup is, too. I may have just delayed the inevitable surgery, but I have kept her able to run, walk, jump, bark at things in her environment, and not be in recovery from surgery for 6-8 weeks at great risk of complications. Her quality of life is maintained, without risking her life and the remaining sight she has left. If surgery is indicated at a later time, I will trust Dr. Shifrin to perform it.

    Amber arrived Christmas Day exactly on time to care for our two Maltese-Terrier mixed rescue dogs. The dogs are very protective of my wife and there are almost zero people who can walk in the door and not be challenged by our more aggressive pooch. Amber amazed us as she very casually walked in the front door and, without making any eye contact with the dogs, dropped a couple of organic doggie treats as she went, all the while talking with us. Well! I can tell you that those dogs went from attack mode to super-calm and friendly in a matter of minutes. Before we left, they were actually at her feet and looking for some attention. Amber has a way with dogs that cannot be denied.
    We left for our overnight trip feeling pretty good about our choice, but we were not prepared for what was to come...Amber sent text messages to us each time she walked or fed the dogs, with small comments about each of them and what they were doing. It was readily apparent that she not only was there and keeping the pups on schedule, but she had totally "pegged" our dogs' distinct personalities. She even sent a couple of pictures to boot!
    When we arrived home the next day, we were pleased to see that the mail, which I had forgotten from the previous day, was on the kitchen counter. Nice touch. But what really blew us away was our kitchen - it was spotless! The few dishes we had left in the sink had been washed and the table and counters thoroughly cleaned. Our sink was sparkling. I've NEVER had anyone do such a terrific job before, and the best part? Our dogs were best friends with Amber. I don't know how she did it, but they totally love this girl! Turns out she also provides dog training and behavioral consultations. Needless to say, we signed up for that. If she can turn our little terrors into the sweet dogs they are for us, this girl knows something! All this in one visit - amazing.

    I had to wait awhile but it wasn't the fault of the clinic. They had 2 emergency surgeries that put them behind in seeing animals. We are new to the area and the clinic came highly recommended. I can see why. When it was my dog's turn to see Dr. Sebby, he took his time answering all my questions. He even sat on the floor and talked to my pet. I was also surprised at my bill. It was a lot less than I pay in Houston. I will definitely continue to use them as my vet.

    The only category I did not give an A was price. I think he is good but not excellent in that department so I gave a B there. I suspect he is about average for the area and that is fine for me; I am looking for good care for my dogs not a steal deal. Do not let paying a normal service fee keep you from using this good veterinarian. Everybody deserves a fair wage and he does have some overhead to cover; I believe his charges are appropriate, not exorbitant, not bargain basement.
