After calling every vet in the area, and them all insisting a stray dog should be put down because of a bad break, I finally called this place. They said they could do the surgery on the leg and quoted me a price. They ended up not doing the surgery due to scar tissue and the setback in the reco…

RE: VCA - METROPLEX ANIMAL HOSPITALI DO NOT RECOMMEND VCA METROPLEX ANIMAL HOSPITAL !!After questioning their veterinarian's and tech's work; we requested our dog's medical records and shortly thereafter; they fired us as patients after 4 years of faithfully paying our bills.
RE: DR. BISCHOFHAUSEN of VCA Metroplex Animal HospitalI DO NOT RECOMMEND DR. BISCHOFHAUSEN! Last year he misrepresented the cancer treatment for my dog. We relied on his gross misrepresentation when agreeing to let him operate on our dog. Our dog received a useless surgery and within hours after coming home, he was sick to his stomach, gagging and couldn't breathe properly and then was ultimately diagnosed with laryngeal paralysis LP - DR. B. implied it was a coincidence but we don't buy it! Despite lots of money and time spent, it wasn't DR. B. who diagnosed the LP or who successfully treated our dog for Cancer.
1 STAR BECAUSE THEY ARE OPEN ON SUNDAYPlease do not come here unless you enjoy the following:A) Spending a ridiculous amount of money and your pet is still sick when you leaveB) Being emotionally distraught because the veterinarian looks at x-rays and jumps to the worst possible conclusion without doing anymore testingC) You want to be conned into spending more money on a test that isn't even necessaryI went here on a Sunday because my cat's regular vet is closed on Sunday. it was possibly the worst weekend I have ever had. My cat was having trouble breathing, she was lethargic, and she wasn't eating. They did X-rays, which was completely necessary, so I am not complaining about that part. But what happened next just makes me think they only wanted the most amount of money possible. The X-rays showed fluid surrounding her lungs. So they pulled some of the fluid off of her lungs and based on what it looked like, the vet just jumped to conclusions and said it was heart failure, and there isn't much that can be done. She did suggest getting and Echocardiogram and EKG done which would have been another $700. I had already spenT nearly $500 before her suggesting that testing. She made it seem like if i didn't do the additional testing there was nothing I could do for my cat. I asked for medication to pull the fluid off of her lungs to at least help her breath until I could come up with the money for the additional tests. She sent me home with medication and a big bill. That night my cat looked like she would die. I have never seen her so un-alert; eyes were glossed over, no energy whatsoever. She was worse than before she went to the VCA ER.The next day I took my cat to her regular vet and he was pretty confused about the method of "treatment" that was given. This vet has been recognized by Cat Fancy magazine for his work with feline medicine. I trust him and he has always been good with my kitty. He didn't understand why they didn't immediately pull ALL the fluid away from her lungs instead of just getting the tiny sample. This was not even mentioned at the VCA. He also didn't understand why they didn't run a simple blood test to check for heart failure. It is called the proBNP SNAP test. It took about 15 minutes and was only $41. The conclusion, NO HEART DISEASE! i WOULD HAVE WASTED ALMOST $700 ON AN UNNECESSARY HEART TEST. Needless to say, i spent significantly less money with my regular vet and got better results. He drained the fluid off her lungs and she is much, much better today! The fluid was sent off along with more bloodwork.Bottom line, VCA Metroplex on 183 in Irving wanted to go with the most expensive and extravagant testing, instead of starting with the basic, simple diagnostics and treatment. Don't go here!
This place is horrible! Stay away! They charge my daughter almost $1000 to watch her puppy die. Jade and Gabby were adopted and fully vetted. 5 weeks later Jade got sick, vomiting and lethargic. My daughter immediately suspected parvo and rushed her to VCA. The vet ran numerous tests and gave absolutely no diagnosis and suggested my daughter put the dog down. My daughter, devastated, took her puppy home and because she trusted this vet, watched Jade die in 2 days. Fast forward 36 hrs, Gabby vomited and my daughter found another 24 hr vet off mockingbird in Dallas. A $70 emergency visit, a diagnosis of parvo in 10 minutes, a home medical plan with meds and IV fluids. $300 out the door. Not only did sweet Jade not have to die, but my daughter did not have to have this guilt for choosing the wrong vet! I am beyond irate!
We found Buena Vista Animal clinic over 15 years ago and they are fantastic! Highly recommend these folks! Dr. Burkett and his staff are very friendly and compassionate. Going above and beyond is the NORM here!
This review is about Dr. Padmavathy Uppalapati MD. FACC. I find her to be a very caring and knowledgeable Dr. Not only did she take care of my Husband but now I am also a patient of Dr. Uppalapati. Dr. Uppalapati has a wonderful, bedside manner and I have the upmost confidence in her. Barbara Gentry-Schantz
Dr. Angelica Marquez gave us a very bad attitude and was rude the entire time she gave us diagnostics on our injured cat. She suggested putting our cat down without any proper examination and straight up slammed the door as she left the room when we decided to wait on it. Very unprofessional and insensitive to our case.
Excellent service... They took care of my dog they are so friendly and professionals. I love Story Road Animal Hospital
yo fui y pregunte sobre lo que cubre esos $35 dollar. Solo es por consulta, si te ponen injeccion o algun estudio es mas dinero. OBIO. yo he hido a otros lugares y me sale super caro. Ojo no es emergencias, no tratan emergencias de ningun tipo. Vendria siendo una clinica como para ponerte en control. ha y otra cosa no tratan niños menores de 5 años y mujeres embarazadas. De ahi en fuera me gusto el trato. Los doctores te dedican tiempo yo he tenido aseguranza y esos doctores entran y salen en menos de un minuto.
I think its absoulty disdusting that some came in with their very sick dog they did some tests on him they told the customer the dog MIGHT have HEARTWORM and diabetes what is with the MIGHT you didnt test the dog for these conditions the bill was way over $500.00 the customer only had half the dog needed like 4 scripts the Dr. Perscribed 2 and told the customer when they pay the balance they will write the remaining scripts. This is so terrible of the Dr.what if the dog dosnt make it till Friday when the customer pays the other half. Never would I recommend your business
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.
