We took our two year old Maltese to Smith & Shedd, after her vet of two years couldn't figure out what her digestive problems were caused by. After literally spending over three thousand dollars at her old vet, we still had no idea what was causing Minkie to vomit and have loose stool sporadically. Her prior vet actually said "sorry, there's nothing else that we can do...she's a dog. Dog's are always getting into things. You need to make sure she's not getting into things." Getting into things? After spending three thousand dollars? Ridiculous!!! Smith & Shedd came highly recommended from a friend, so with apprehension, we decided to give them a try. Our first impression was how genuinely sincere the front staff and technicians were. Dr. Smith was also very sincere, and had our baby's problem narrowed down to two possibilities, just by examining her and reading over her piror records. We had to fast Minkie that night. The following morning, they took blood samples, and by the next afternoon we had the results. We had spent thousands at her prior vet, and now with less than two hundred dollars and one visit, we had her diagnosis. Minkie had an unusual disease called a liver shunt. Next they used their ultrasound to diagnose where the shunt was located. Thankfully, hers was of a type that could be fixed surgically. Now it's been over six months since her surgery, and Minkie is the picture of perfect health - her coat is no longer dull, she's put on over two pounds, she is much more energetic, and most importantly, she hasn't had any diarrhea or vomiting since the surgery. Seldom have I had such a wonderful experience with any professional, including mine and my husband's own doctors, that could compare with that of Smith & Shedd. I would recommend them highly to anyone with an animal family member!
Took my pug, Lola for spaying procedure. This animal hospital is absolutely fantastic! The premises are impeccably clean, the staff is friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. NEVER will I ever go anywhere else for my dog's well-being. After the surgery, they even called the foll…

We are thrilled with XOXO Pet Sitting services and would recommend them to anyone wanting a worry free alternative to putting their pets in a kennel. We have been using XoXo Pet Sitting for some time and we (and our dogs/hedgehog) are always thrilled with their services. They know how important people's pets are to them and from her first visit with our dogs, they loved her and she really enjoys loving on them. She provides us 3 visits a day and that is just what we need for our older dogs that have good "control" of their bodily functions. It is also really nice to have someone we trust stopping by the house several times a day while we are out of town. The variety of having someone coming and going is a deterrent to those with bad intentions and it gives us a sense of security. This really is the best thing for our pets as well. They are SOOOOO much happier being at home, not in a kennel (which we used to do and they HATED it). We like not worrying about our dogs not eating or being stressed in a kennel as they have in the past. Also there much less chance of contracting any communicable illnesses in a kennel setting. NOTE: During holiday season she books up pretty fast, reserving/paying early ensures you the care your pets need!
I bought a puppy from PetLand and in order to activate the warranty, I had to take the puppy to Smith and Shedd for an initial exam. After reading the reviews for Smith and Shedd, I have to say I was a little weary about this place. I work at a doctors office so i know the power the reviews have on a business. First off, the facility is BEAUTIFUL. Kudos to the designer! Overall my experience was very nice. I'd take my puppy back if I lived closer to their facility and I wasn't already happy with another vet I've used on my other dogs. I met Dr. Smith who was VERY nice and accommodating. He answered all the questions we had. The tech explained things nicely as well. The only thing we had to pay for was the flea/tick treatment. As for the bad reviews, I feel for the consumer, but like I said, I work for a doctor's office so I do feel for the vet's office as well. Some places go through growing pains when it comes to employees. As for pricing, it's the same for a vet's office (I think lol) as it is for a doctor's office. There are pay scales based on the location of the facility. Based on my experience with them, I'd recommend them to a friend.
My husband and I adopted three adorable sibling kittens that needed all the works as new clients and when we called Smith & Shedd to set up an appointment. Receptionist, Donna, was very friendly and knowledgable about what would need for our initial visit. The most impressing aspect was that they e-mailed me an estimate before we arrived for our apointme. The doctor we saw was Dr. Smith and I have to say that he was very thorough with the exams as well as explaining everything that the kittens had received, from vaccines, fecal tests, and the whole wellness exam. When we arrived at the counter to check-out I paid the exact amount quoted on our estimate. So, I have happily found the vet that is a perfect fit for our family and even better, Smith & Shedd is a family owned practice. I have even received a follow-up call to see how our little ones were doing. Don't see the reason for the previous postings that clearly are defaming their character as a clinic which was soooooooo far from the truth. So, if you need a compassionate vet and live in San Antonio then I would not hesitate to give Smith & Shedd a call.
I have been using Smith & Shedd for about 3 yrs and, there are two other vet clinics much closer to where I live. I thought I had made my first appt at the clinic across the st from me, but it turned out it was Smith & Shedd. I went ahead and kept the appt at Smith & Shedd thinking that once my Pug was okay this time, I would make my next appt at the 'right' clinic. However, I was so pleased with the professionalism and care given at this clinic that, I drive just to keep seeing the Smith & Shedd team. One example I can give is, my Pug was not able to urinate (due to struvyte crystals) at one point--Dr. Smith was very caring and listened to what I had to say, kept me updated and, eventually referred me to a specialist that in conjunction with Dr. Smith...saved my puggie! If you have a pug, this is a great place to bring him. Another example is, my boyfriend attracts kittys that are hurt and abandoned, and the staff has worked with me, reasonably, so that I can help these poor babies! Lastly, especially with this being Sep 11th , I also want to add that I appreciate that they have a military discount!
Smith & Shedd Family Pet Hosptial is a WONDERFUL vet. We actually stumbled across this vet by accident but am extremely grateful we did. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. The vet we have worked with, Dr. Shedd, has always been very kind and has never made me feel rushed. We also have worked with the office manager when we had concerns about setting up a payment plan and she was very helpful and easy to work with. Their facilities are very nice as well. The ENTIRE staff is also very compassionate and you can tell they all truly love animals. The best part about this vet is that I have never had to wait more than 10 mins to be seen. They always seem to keep to their appointment schedule very well. Their pricing matches other local vets or is slightly lower.
We stumbled on this small restaurant on a Sunday night when the place we were planning to go was closed. We were very happy to find friendly prompt service, great food, reasonable prices and fantastic dinner rolls. We had two huge meals, drinks and a giant cinnamon roll to take home for only $21. The waitress even packaged up four large rolls for us to take home. It was warm inside (not unbearably so) but the owner came over to us and apologized and said they were getting the windows tinted to try to address the heat. We will definitely go back and take some big eaters with us.
This is a great pet store, very good service and has everything that I was looking for. It is very clean and smells great. They also have lots of the best kinds of dog foods.
Very professional and compassionate. Figured out what was wrong with my Ralphie after two other vets couldn't. Prices seemed inline and comparable to our prior vets.
Great job with my pups. You could tell they gave a damn. Money well spent.
