I took my 17 year old best friend and devoted cat to Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin after he crashed from taking Insulin. I thought for sure he was going to die. We had been through another crash before but it was nothing as frightening as this one. Within two minutes he was taken to the back and emergency care was begun. The doctor came out within 15 minutes saying he would have surely died if I had not gotten there when I did and Casper was now responding well to treatment. After explaining further care needed, we discussed fees.
Emergency care for pets (the same for humans) is expensive and most people do not have the cash up front in these kinds of situations. If you have animals, it is a good idea to think about possible health emergencies and make some kind of plan if a crisis should occur. There are several pet insurance policies and credit cards that can help with these kinds of emergencies. My heart truly goes out to those people commenting in the earlier reviews. I spent over $2000.00 at the emergency hospital in New Braunfels and an additional $2500 for continued hospitalization for my 11 Year old cat who then needed to be euthanized due to cancer. I do not have a lot of money and drive an 11 year old car. My money goes to food, housing, bills, and my animals. Sometimes we have to make hard choices as pet owners.
I just want to thank the staff at the Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin for their compassion, expertise, and professionalism when taking care of my good buddy and would highly recommend them to anyone needing emergency pet care. Thanks again.

Sunday morning my teacup Chihuahua went into convulsions. My fiance called at work to tell me she was sick we called our vet & this was the emergency clinic they recommended. We got there and they took her & gave her a sedative to calm her down & then give us a workup of exactly how much this would be to take care of her. They would not help her. She weighed 1.9 lbs. And then they sent us home because we did not have $600. I told them I could pay the bill in full on Thursday but they still sent us home. An hour later it started again. I called back 3 TIMES, sobbing & begging them to help her & the nurse tells me over the phone that it was a brain tumor & I should think of putting her down. How is it no one told us this when we were there? The only thing they told us then was that they could give her medication for seizures but nothing about a brain tumor. After calling back 3 times trying to get them to see her again they agreed and asked if we had anyone we could borrow the money from. This was my little girl, we had been together for 12 years & in the end her life was worth $600. The doctor told us it was up to the owner of the practice not her if we could pay 4 days later. Don't you get into veterinary medicine for the same reason you get into people medicine? For the love of animals? This was my baby, and they were callous and somewhat insensitive to the situation. In the first place, if she had a brain tumor or they suspected this they should have told us this and not just give us a price list. They should have given all of the information, not just the part that made them money. I would have given anything to have my little girl with me today but because her condition lasted about an hour I felt she would have no quality of life. If you have the money please take your pet to another emergency clinic and if you can wait please take your beloved pets to your own vet. I truly believe that my baby would be here still if she had been able to last one more day & make it to her regular vet. I blame them for what happened to her...her death. Please don't go here. I have heard more than my own horror story about this place. They are there for the money & not to save your pet.

NO ONE should ever have to go through what my poor dog went through with this place EVER!!! The Dr. on duty had no love of animals and should loose their license!!!! Took my pup in for their emergency after hours care and because I was in a Corolla and not a Mercedes they must have thought I couldn?t pay a big bill and they treated me and my pup like low class scum. Made my poor pup wait for hours and there was no one else there. I think the doc just wanted to get rid of me and took all of 3 seconds to say there was nothing wrong with my pup. By the time I got out of there my normal vet?s office was open I?m glad I stopped turns out my pup would have died if I didn?t get him help within the next few hours and after all that this place still charged me over 300. They suck and the staff is rude!!!
