This place is excellant. We had a hard to handle terrier and he seemed to put him right at ease. I was told by other groomers they would not groom this dog. This groomer has a way with animals and they love him. Now we recommend to our friends and take all the dogs there.

I have 3 children that went to homegrown kids. Me. Debbie was their 2nd mom. The daycare was always clean and children well supervised. I highly recommend this day care.
A great place. A true farm with lots of room to play & learn. Friendly staff. Kids love it.
Brought my dog in on a Wednesday evening (they knew I was coming) because she had become real sick, so I rushed there and when arriving I was told to stay in the car with the dog until they got a room, I went in 2 more times expressing the dog was barely breathing and she will die if someone doesn't look at her ASAP... 45 minutes later and because I was livid at this point I bring the dog in bc I just knew she had probably just died WAITING on someone to look at her!! Yes, she had indeed passed away in my car waiting for them to "get a room"... I use to bring my personal dogs there and I will NEVER step foot in that clinic again! HORRIBLE clinic do not bring your dogs there, they DON'T care, the vet could have come to my car to check the dog out to see the level of seriousness but they refused. Neglectful and outright uncompassionate people.
New with Faith Springs Baptist on O'Day Road now. A terrific group of educators! God works wonders through this very loving academy.
I brought in my new puppy and Dr. Vanderford took his time and answered all my questions. His staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The prices were very reasonable as well.
They were very nice and helpful! You can tell everybody loves they’re job!! I will definitely be back
Great experience!! Friendly staff and terrific Dr. Took time to discuss all concerns. Clinic was clean and minimal wait time.
Very friendly staff, they attended to my chihuahua right away,very caring and understanding❤ will recommend to everybody .
New to town and was recommended by a friend to this vet clinic. Appointment went well, got all questions answered and estimate for future dental. Staff was friendly and clinic was very clean. Went the extra mile by getting me some meds to try even though they didn't have them on site. Very pleased with experience.
First time appt for a yearly exam and vaccines, great staff and atmosphere. I did not feel rushed or pressured to get through questions quickly. Definitely our new vet office while living in the Houston area.
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.
