DR. MURRAY IS A GREAT VET!!!To BBolin: Your comments about Dr. Murray are pretty harsh and obviously biased. We've been using Dr. Murray as our vet for our dogs for over 20 yrs. I couldn't ask for a better vet, caring and compasionate, and someone who would do anything for us to help with the care of our pets. If he were as awful as you claim, we wouldn't still be going to him. For every one of our pets who has been in it's final hours of life, Dr. Murray has come to our home to put them to sleep. Their last few minutes on this earth are in our home and in our arms and they don't have to endure going to the vet "one last time". They die in a dignified manner with loving hands holding them and hearing our voices. If there has ever a time when Dr. Murray has felt our pets needed to see a specialist, he has seen to it they get the best care possible. Don't be so overly sensitive about someone telling you that your pets are "child substitutes". We've heard that all our lives from a number of people and I don't care what someone else thinks about this.....because they are child substitutes for us, and there is nothing wrong with that in my book. Again, I don't care what someone else has to say about my relationship with my pets. Dr. Murray has a dry sense of humor. Not everyone can relate to that and don't know how to respond. Dr. Murray wouldn't still be in business if he were as awful as you've described. He's not burned out and doesn't need to retire. But, yes, you do need to find another vet who will hang on your every word, put up with your thin skin, let you manage your pet's care as you wish, let it self feed (which is a no no), and let you and your physician husband self diagnose your dog's problems. Why bother with a vet? Just let your husband treat it. I dare say Dr. Murray is not the only person you have difficulty getting along with. As for your opinion of him, that's all it is....just your insignificant, worthless opinion.I will stand behind Dr. Murray every chance I get. He's been a wonderful vet for us and been a real advocate for our pets to see they get the best possible care. When he does choose to retire, we'll be up a creek to find someone who can fill his shoes. One of his receptionists, and one of his techs have been with him from almost day one of his practice. If he was so horrible I doubt they would have stuck around this long.I can't say enough good things about him and his staff. They all work as a team to make sure our pets are lovingly cared for. I have referred him to several friends over the years, and no one else has any complaints. So to read your comments about him, does hit a little close to home for me.He's a great vet who does everything humanly possible to make sure our pets get the best care possible. He and his staff deserve a 5-star rating.

"My dog loves Dee's. We take her here when we go out of town and when it is time for her spa day. I love that they are very careful about shot records being up to date, including something called bortedella which I have no idea what that means but it's not good if your dog gets it. My friend at work takes her dog weekly and she loves it. We watch them on the website cam at work and they are always having a good time. Grooming is okay and very reasonable. I have had to take her back to get her face trimmed a little shorter but they were fine with that. If you want just a fancy gromming place with painted toes, bows and perfume, this might not be your place. But to have your dog have a fun day, come home grommed, clean and happy, this is your place. I have also done some training with them while my dog was being boarded for a week long vacation and I loved the lady that does the training. She is great and I need to do more of that. I'm a fan of Dee's..."
This place is great. For the size of the store, Yuki, the stores owner, has a lot going on as far as the selection of freshwater plants, freshwater fish, great looking saltwater corals and saltwater fish, and aquarium supplies.I've only been to the store once, because it was a minor detour on my way home, and I was MAYBE looking to spend 10$ for a replacement bulb for my lighting fixture since I had bought the wrong type of lights when buying my lighting fixture online. I ended up spending 40$ because of all the stuff I ended up wanting from this store. The service was amazing,from my first impression, it seems like everyone there is very educated in the hobby. I got a chance to get serviced by the owner, and he seemed interested in my tank and gave me suggestions for the future that I hadn't thought about and gave me a lot of hope for my planted freshwater tank.
My two yellow labs have been patients now for one year with Dr. Tony Meyers and Ginger. I want people to know how great this office is not only during the first visit but every single time you visit. One of my dogs has diabetes and is insulin dependent twice a day. It was a huge adjustment for me at first and a big challenge but Ginger and Dr. Meyers helped us get over this major obstacle and today she is doing amazing. They will follow up with you, make sure you are informed and most important of all is you will feel that they truly care about your pet. I am forever grateful to this office and honestly cannot recommend them enough if you are looking for a top of the line highly educated and experienced vet office . Thank you Dr. Meyers, Ginger, Jaimie and Meagan for everything you do and for helping my girl this past year! you are my heros.
David is incredible. Miller, our then 8-month old terrier, is a definite handful. David reported no trouble with the terror, I mean terrier. Miller was clearly very happy with his care. David did two 30 minute walks in the morning and in the evening with playtime and breakfast/dinner. He also came over mid-day for 30 minutes of outdoor playtime. $18 a visit was well worth it for all the attention and love he provided for Miller while in the security of my home. David also watered two indoor plants and collected the mail and newspapers. I was so surprised to see he even vacuumed my floor where Miller tracked in some dirt. I really didn't expect that, but appreciated the extra step. My main priority was that Miller was in good hands and he definitely was. I do not travel often, but when I do David is my first choice. Thank you.
This is a GREAT store for all of your aquarium needs! Awesome selection of healthy fresh and salt water species. I visited the store while being in town for a class, and was just looking for something to do. The owner was extremely knowledgeable, and provided GREAT customer service to everyone that came through the door. He took his time with the customers and shared his knowledge and experiences with them to ensure they were able to accomplish what they wanted. The store was neat and in good order, and fully stocked with some of the best products in the hobby. Needless to say I had a great visit, and I plan to make a return trip to the Dallas area, from Austin, just to purchase supplies and stock from this store.
I am the owner of Angel Pets and I provide pet transportation services for Airvets when they need a pet transport job done in Houston - usually to take a pet to or from the airport- and I must say it is such a pleasure working with them. They are professional and courteous and they have all the paperwork taken care of so I don't have to worry about a thing. That way I can focus on hat I do best, taking great care of the pets entrusted to me. I really like the fact that I can text to keep in touch with them during a job too. They are very responsive. I will recommend them to anyone needing help transporting their pets long distances and I am thrilled to be doing business with them.
So, I've been taking my two little babies to Dee's for months now. I receive the best service there. And my babies get the best service from the groomers. I really enjoy everything about this place. I feel like it's my all in one stop. I have had the chance when I needed to fly back home for an emergency and was unable to take my babies with me. I left them for a weekend and I could tell as soon as I got back that they had had their own mini vacation. It put my mind to ease to know they had been so well taken care of. And the prices are extremely reasonable for the service received. All around great place, great service, great groomers, and a definite recommend!! Thank you!!
Excellent vet. Dr. Landers has been taking care of my 4 for years now, and he is a great doctor! He will tell it to you straight taking the time to explains options. He is the only vet I've found that won't recommend something they don't need. My husband said it best - he is a better doctor than our physicians and it's too bad we can't go to him. I have saved so much money taking advantage of the annual plans they offer. And Caroline is an extraordinarily organized and kind staff member who always remembers all my furkids and their conditions and she even accommodates my physical limitations when scheduling and picking up without my having to ask for assistance.
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
