Love Dr. Woods and their techs. Always so relaxed and they don't nickel and dime you to death with unnecessary treatments. Dr Woods Sr. Is who we see the most. Love his funny sayings for certain conditions that just put me at ease. I appreciate their caring attitudes for our fur baby.

My Boxer dog had a little accident last night and needed stitches. Went to another vet (24 hours) and they tried to make me pay $650 for cleaning and stitching my dog... they also had to put her to sleep AND keep her overnight.
I refused so they came back with another quote to clean and drugs (pain and antibiotics)... 150$. Just cleaning! no stitches!
I brought her back home call my regular vet (Balcones Animal Hospital) on their emergency line. They asked me many questions and told me to wait until the morning and be there early. I went... 30 minutes later I was out of there... My dog was cleaned, stitched with antibiotics for $117. No putting to sleep... no keeping for the day.
She is next to me... happy and sleeping. in 10 days will go back to remove the stitches.
I love this VET. Older gentlemen that has been around and know how to deal with animals. My Boxer love them! Staffs are friendly and all of them loves animals.

I have been taking my dogs to Dr. James Woods since 1976 and he has always been a caring wonderful vet. He especially is great at dealing with end of life issues and his compassion makes difficult decisions about beloved dogs easier. I took in a new rescue dog yesterday and he assessed her health and told me he appreciated that I had saved her. I have also seen his son Dr. Jason Woods and he is just as wonderful as his father.
If you are looking for quality vet services at a reasonable price try Balcones Animal Hospital.

Read such great reviews for Balcones Animal Hospital that I decided to try it today. Took all 3 of my dogs just for a general checkup. One of them had an ear infection. They were very personable, gave me lots of general information for keeping my pets healthy and affordable, and really loved on my pets too. Best of all, the cost was so low I couldn't believe it. They charged me what I would have expected to be the amount for 1 dog for all 3 dogs and most vets charge even more than that. Definitely recommend them. I had no problem getting an appt. and when I went there was only 1 other dog there. Highly recommend them.

We have taken our four-legged children to Dr. Wood for years. Everything from surgery (minor routine spays to major surgery for bladder stones) to check-ups and shots, to frantic sick animal calls.I know a lot of reviews mention not being able to get an appointment. I just now called and was offered either a tomorrow or the next day morning appointment. Yes, there have been times when they have been incredibly busy. Just like any other medical provider. But they do their best, and they truly care about both the pets, and their owners. I have never in my life met a more compassionate vet. (Either of them). They take the best care of all our family's cats, dogs, and rats. (Unfortunately, they do not do birds! I wish they did!)

Dr Wood has been amazing. After having to take my cat to a specialist, I ended up coming back to Dr. Wood so that he could explain the diagnosis in terms I could fully understand, and he has done so, without the extra charges the specialist wanted. He cares both about our pets and us as pet owners. Also, I think the staff has been just great and don't understand some of these reviews. I have always experienced prompt courteous service on appointments and they have excellent vet techs as well. Highly recommended!!!

Finally, through a referral, I found the vet I've been looking for. I have been driving out of town, over 2 hrs each way, to take my pets to someone I trust. My pets are very dear to me, to say the least, and I have had a terrible experience with The Cat Hospital on Pond Springs Rd who refused me help and thereby crippled my cat. They didn't know what to do and even though another vet told them what to do they charged me $200. You won't have any problems with Balcones vets. They are truly wonderful people and they won't break the bank for you.

I have read the previous reviews and can't believe some of them. I've been going to Dr. Woods for over twenty five years on and off (I've moved, but I always make the drive for anything other than routine visits, which I do with Dr. Graef in Taylor, also a great vet, but doesn't have all the equipment needed for some situations) Dr. Woods has always been so caring while being truthful and informative, explaining all the options for my elderly dogs, Don't believe the previous review about waiting two weeks. I've called many times for a semi serious situation and they've always fit me in within a day or two at the most, and of course if there's an emergency (I've had two snake bitten dogs) you're right in the door with either Dr. Woods or his son. Dr. Woods worked on my beloved Bonnie for two hours trying to save her life after being snake bitten. I can't say enough about my good experiences over the years with Dr. Woods and his son, Dr. Woods more recently. I know the reception staff is busy and can be businesslike at times, (friendlier lately, I must say) but overall, I would rate the whole team as A+. Price is only one consideration, you want to trust your vet with your pet's life and I trust these people immensely.

Unfortunately, this business has been hurt by it's success. It usually takes days or weeks to get an appointment. There are many other vets in the area who can fit you in the same day if you have a concern about your pet. We've been to Anderson Mill Animal Clinic and Research Pet and Bird Hospital and have been happier with them.
