I am a concerned pet owner, and quite possibly an overly sensitive one. That means I take my dog to the vet ALOT. The folks at Lakewood Forest Veterinary are always friendly, willing to help with big and small issues alike, and they never make me feel like just a patient or a number.The receptio…

Earlier in the year my Boxer Zeus was having seizures back to back for an hour. I rushed him into the Vet who dropped everything to pump medication into my big guy till the seizures stopped. I love all the people their. They care about your pet and your wallet.

From household hazards to insurance, here is a roundup of our best tips for ensuring your pet's safety.
Do not take your pet here. We came after midnight because of an emergency, and waited for half an hour for the vet to show up. Our dog had diarrhea and bleeding from the rectum but the vet told us that the bleeding was not so bad compared to the other dogs who were getting treated in the clinic. They made a blood test of our dog twice, we filled out the forms twice, they printed invoices twice because they were not sure what to do with our dog, and finally after two hours of waiting and after we paid more than $1,800 they took our dog for treatment. Our dog who was a happy puppy just a few hours before we came in died at the clinic six hours later. I think that if anyone comes in with a sick dog after 12 am because of an emergency they should not wait 2 hours before their dog gets treated. I believe that this clinic values money over the lives of our pets.
This is the worse clinic ever I took 3 of my puppy's and they said cause 1 was vomiting I couldn't be inside with none of my pups which was OK with me but after waiting 4hrs they said they forgot cause I had paid so that meant I had been checked out so when I did get my puppies in they said they were dehydrated and needed fluids my puppy threw up in office and they said it's dehydration and my puppy died 2days later from parvo really but they did the test and everything was OK how please tell me how is this OK when I paid over $300 for a visit and all I got was they are dehydrated never again will I take my puppy's there pos place
If it were possible to give Dr. Huckabee a ZERO, I'd do it. After about 10 yrs. of using this Clinic, I will be taking my cat to a Vet in SW Houston who I know and trust. Don't know what's happened to the gentleness factor with this Clinic, but my requests to spare my 17 yr. old cat trauma were completely ignored, 1st by a tech and substitute vet (which I complained about), then, yesterday by Dr. Huckabee herself. My requests were not out of line; using the muzzle so cat didn't have to be held down so hard (the tech), and making blood draw from neck [easier & much less painful], instead of his front paw, in which he screamed, kicked and cried (Dr. Huckabee). What do I have to do to be heard? If you want your requests as a pet owner ignored (esp. if you're a female alone), and don't mind rough treatment of your pet, then, this is the Clinic for you. Otherwise, find another Vet Clinic & save your pet the anguish. I can only surmise Dr. did this on purpose to prove a point (or because she could), or she needs some work on her listening and people skills (which she does). As far as I'm concerned, Dr. Huckabee can sit and spin on it; I'm trying to refrain from using The B word, which she most definitely is one of those. My old cat will NEVER be seeing Northwest Animal Hospital again. Poor little guy...
Was referred here after my vets office was damaged in flood.. Took my 11 year old for pyometra surgery... pyometra is a life threatening disease and surgery was the only option. Bc of a previous horrible surgery experience years ago that resulted in my fur baby’s death, I was terrified and nervous about this. But the entire staff is amazing, friendly and helpful. Their prices are SO reasonable too... as pet care can get VERY expensive ... I cannot be more grateful for this place!!
I LOVE Dr. Griggs and her staff! I had to take my Bengal in 12 days ago due to losing weight (9 lbs) within 6 months and having an occasional seizure. I took him 4 months ago to an emergency animal clinic and they did not listen to what I was attempting to tell them. All they were concerned about was racking up my bill by insisting that he had a back injury and needed and CT & MRI. Yeah no. So I ended up here on the recommendation of my co-worker and I am so happy that I listened to her! Dr. Griggs listened to me explain the last 6 months so we started with blood work and a couple of antibiotics and probiotics until the results came in. The next day she called and said that he has hyperthyroidism and had the pills ready for me to pick up. When I got home with the new medication I noticed that her staff SPLIT all his thyroid meds so that they can be ready to give him, without me having to stress how to cut a TINY pill. His follow up was very good also. She is very caring, listens and is super gentle with my cat. Other vets in the past have been very rough and he in turn will bite them.
Been taking my cats here for 6 years!! Love them! !
We have used Forest West for 20 years. Very satisfied with them .
helpful, friendly and caring. none of our animals have put up a fuss when going here. one dog would even run to the door and try to go back to the examination room when we arrived.
Great prices and great service. My dog was spayed almost 3 years ago,but still remember the excellent service. I was looking up the address to refer someone to you and just realized I didn't put in a review. I still remember how they eased my worries once I saw her doing so well post surgery. Thank you PetWorks for doing an amazing job. S. Vail
Veterinarian Cantu was polite and professional .
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.
