My Mother and I have been using Dr. Bond since we moved to Texas in 1996. He has helped us care for not only our own animals but all of the foster animals we have had over the last twenty years. He and his staff are kind, caring and empathetic and have provided a wide range of services for our family and fur pets over the years.
We love Dr Bond and his staff. Have taken all our last 7 dogs to him and he is very caring and a great vet. This former Veterinary Technician trusts him completely. As far as heartworm meds & not signing off, that is pretty standard practice in all the vets I have ever been to in Texas.
My family has been taking their pets to Dr. Bonds for almost 15 years. He is wonderful! Recently my grown daughter's cat developed cancer. He was an angel not only to the cat but to my daughter.
Our extended animal family between my three adults kids and mother in law and ourselves includes 4 dogs and 3 cats and every one of them are patients of Dr. Bonds.
I've never had a good experience at Southwood Valley Animal Hospital, but it wasn't until recent events that I finally left.
A year after adopting my first dog, I adopted a second from a shelter. Between the time I picked her and the time I actually brought her home, I ordered heartworm medication for her (like a good dog owner). Dr. Bond refused to sign off on the order because he "had never seen her (the dog) before." I was finally able to get medication from another clinic that works closely with the shelter.
I wanted to get my first dog neutered, so I made an appointment with Dr. Bond. The soonest appointment was a month later. So I waited. The Saturday before the appointment, his staff called me and told me that I needed to reschedule (the appointment was for Monday). I am a very busy person between work and school, so I asked my boyfriend to take my dog and pick him up on the day they wanted to reschedule the appointment (Thursday). On Monday, my boyfriend got called on orders (he is in the military) and had to leave. I called Southwood Valley Animal Hospital to reschedule. They were very rude and said that they could only reschedule me for a month later! I had already been waiting a month!
Needless to say, I am now going to a different vet clinic that pays attention to my needs and even offered to have someone meet me before they opened to drop off my dog so I could get to class on time.
If you expect respect from a vet clinic, don't go to Southwood Valley Animal Hospital.
