I brought my dog in for euthanasia because he had become aggressive and was attacking other dogs. I loved the dog so much and it was agonizing. The vet we saw did not even sedate my poor boy and wanted to do the procedure with no sedation. He was so un caring and callous. My dog was so scared and upset. He had never tried to bite a vet before. He salivated and was a nervous wreck. Only after I asked for sedation did he get some. After the vet coldly announced to me it was an extra 50 dollars. Then my dog did not die peacefully at all. He was the 4 th dog I've had to put down and it was horrific. He fought and he moved around on the cold floor for what seemed like eternity. I was the only person my dog loved and trusted and I took him to this office and he had to struggle to die. It's been the worst experience of my life. Ill never forget how my baby died. I just don't want that to happen to anyone else. Don't take your dog there.

They got me in o short notice after waking up to my large Yorkie with something obviously wrong. I thought she had a stroke because she is old and was walking funny and not wanting to move around. They told us to come on in, even though we had never been there before. We didn't have to wait long and the clinic was very busy when we got there. Dr. Holcomb new right away that it was not a stroke and thought she had something wrong with her back. We left her for an hour and he called to tell us the xrays showed that she had a bulging disc. The clinic was clean, it smelled clean, cute clinic. They were very professional and the nurse even walked us out the door!

My dog seems confortable going there for grooming, the Drs are very diligent to call you and answer your questions and they keep checking to make sure our dog is doing well with wathever treatment they prescribe. It is the only place my dog can get groomed without freaking out. The drive-tru is the best. I have a baby and can't handle both of them for visits, so I can't be happier with the service. They really seem to care about the animals. I must say, I am still not totally convinced about the Drs being the best, because I wish they could figure out what's wrong more quickly, but I got spoiled with an exceptional vet in Idaho and haven't found anyone like her again. Compared with Travis Country Animal Hospital, the place is cleaner, the nurses more attentive and the Drs more caring.

I can't say enough great things about this place. My family has been going to Hill Country for 4 years and have had a very warm and positive experience every time we have been in. I LOVE the drive thru.
Dr Holcomb is so personable as is his staff. I am called by name and so are my 3 dogs everytime we walk in the door.
I first came to Hill Country when one of our dogs was misdiagnosed by another hospital. Dr. Holcomb immediately knew what was wrong with my dog and had him back on his feet in no time.
This is definitely the nicest and cleanest clinic I have seen. They are busy especially around the holidays. I recommend booking your boarding reservations in advance. They fill up quickly because they are so popular.
I will continue to reccomend them to all my friends!

When I brought my dog in for neutering they made an extra incision by mistake, and left a scar that to this day is a reminder of their incompetence. And never quite impressed with their bedside manner and the intelligence of their staff, this latest visit was the final straw. Since I was taking him in for shots, I thought it would be wonderfully convenient to have him groomed as well. This groomer has no right to consider herself a professional groomer. He is cut so unevenly that it borders upon the ridiculous. It looks like my 6 year old niece took a pair of safety scissors to the little guy, thinking she could be Edward Scissorhands. Some people may be satisfied with the quality of their care, however I am no longer willing to overlook their various deficiencies and will not be going back.
