AVOID AVOID AVOID. BUYER BEWARE. This place has had serious problems and Ed Nichols is one of the worst vets imaginable. He has been under multiple investigations by the Texas state board but gets away with it because he is an accomplished liar and has his friends posting ridiculous reviews about how great he is because the truth of what he has been for so many years has finally caught up with him.. Forget these little touchy feely reviews about old ladies and their dead pets. That's what this vampire feeds on. YOU WANT THE FACTS? Read what he did to a cat at The Veterinary Abuse Network and there are other victims too. He then sued the owner of that cat to try to silence her in a vicious, vindictive lawsuit for almost three years and failed to get an injunction against her. THIS IS ALL PUBLIC RECORD so all of his claims that his victims are liars, "disgruntled," crazy, etc. are limp and lame. He knows his faithful clients will believe whatever crap comes out of his mouth without checking the FACTS. Nichols is a BULLY who uses his wealth to try to silence his critics, but there is confirmation by three expert vets in writing how many ways he violated the standard of care in his excessive mistreatment of Suki. ONCE YOUR PET IS DEAD HE CAN TELL YOU ANYTHING HE WANTS AND YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO TELL WHEN HE IS LYING. Once your pet is dead there won't be any "second opinons" to mess up his little routine.. Suki fought for her life for a week with other vets trying to undo the damage Nichols had done, but it was too late.They knew what he had done to her because she was STILL ALIVE even after being gassed by Nichols and pumped full of steroid to make her look better. "Caring"? Suki lay dying in a cage at Crestway for hours, dying slowly of dehydration, anemia, and kidney failure after Nichols put her under anesthesia - PROOF is on his patient chart in his own handwriting that he gassed her with halothane and nitrous oxide without IV fluids or consent from the owner. He later admitted in a deposition that he decides when to get consent from the owner. Suki died but not before leaving behind evidence of what he had done to her for such a long time. Read about the LAWSUIT he filed to try to bully the owner into taking down Suki's story. He failed. Go to Veterinary Abuse Network to get the REAL STORY ON ED NICHOLS AND CRESTWAY ANIMAL CLINIC. NOT ALL HIS MONEY AND LAWYERS COULD SILENCE THE TRUTH. If you love your pet AVOID AVOID AVOID this liar with a good act and the people around him who protect him because he signs their paychecks.
