I highly recommend this clinic to all my friends, and family. I have been taking my pets to Dr. Guerra's clinic since 1994. She has a genuine compassion and desire to provide the best care for the animals she cares for. In 2001 my dog Max was diagnosed with Lymphoma, she directed us to one of t…

I am just over the moon about this group. My little dog, who has been very sick and will now need chronic care, sees Dr. Lane, who is awesome. The staff is very pleasant and professional. It's nice to finally find a group that is not just about the almighty dollar.

There was one rep that made all the difference! Her name is Cathy and she was fast, friendly, and knowledgeable. Her professionalism is the sole reason I will go back to give this place another shot. The vet tech was not all that friendly, but began to ""warm up"" to me at the end of my dogs v…

I adopted a dog from the local shelter who was heartworm positive. The staff was very knowledgeable and professional in the treatment of my dog, and to me, the mama. As for the review of please don't go here..., that dog was probably already messed up before getting services here.

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…

I have been to lots of vets and Dr Curd and her staff are amazing. I appreciate that I was able to ask the questions of Dr Curd that I wanted to ask about my dogs situation. I was blown away by the staff, from the receptionist when I called to make an appointment, to the tech assisting Dr Curd a…

Just like the planning that went into your vacation, there is planning needed before boarding your pet. Here are some dos and don'ts to help make the process a little easier.
After reading a few of the reviews I felt I was obligated to voice my own opinion on this clinic. I have been in there many times with my dogs and cat. The front staff is always very sweet and friendly. The techs were very caring and gentle with my pets, I've never felt they were unqualified. The prices are the usual for any vet clinic in town; unless your talking about the low cost clinics or shelter programs. I did my own price shopping before choosing this clinic. I have also noticed that they always seem to have kittens in there for adoption. One time I asked where they were coming from and the receptionists said they get them all the time, either dumped on their door step or clients find them. They take them in when they have room and care for them until they can adopt them out. They even fix them and give them shots before they go home with their new family! The receptionist even told me they have adopted out a few dogs that were abandoned there too; she did say that adopting dogs out was not the norm, but they try to help out when they can. I think that is amazing of them, because as a pet owner, I know how expensive the neutering and shots can be. The doctors are all fabulous and very knowledgable. They have a new vet, a male, Dr. Philips; he is so nice and informative! The other two are females and very nice too. I haven't seen Dr. Vargo yet, but I've seen her with other people and she seems very caring and excited about her job. Dr. Byrd has been there since I started coming and she is great. I love my visits to this clinic, it's always a good experience.
Took my 2 dogs here about a week ago, and left them for 3 days. I was upset because they wouldn't allow me to go see the kennels/runs where the dogs would be staying, because they only show them during certain hours of the day - however I got a glimpse through one of the doors and the back area appeared to be very clean, very well maintained. There is a lot of paper work to fill out when you drop your pet off (maybe it was just because it was our first time there), BUT this is acutally a good thing, because you know they have ALL of your contact information, know ALL the details about your pets, and will NOT release your pet(s) to anyone other than you. The last place I left my doggies (not Rob Cary) didn't ask any questions or ANYTHING, I was shocked. The "lobby" area inside Rob Cary is very impressive, there are lots and lots of pet products (toys, bedding, leashes, collars, etc etc). They appear to be well staffed, and everyone seemed to be really nice. One of my dogs is very hyperactive, VERY hard to handle, just won't hold still AT ALL... anyway, they trimmed her nails and it was only $10 - I know Petsmart wanted to charge me double that for her!! When I picked my dogs up, they actually seemed to be in very good moods, and the other customers that were there as we were leaving were all very friendly. I would highly recommend Rob Cary Pet Resort to anyone looking for an ABOVE-average boarding facility!
I have gone to Dr. Kohnen for almost a decade - before he even started this practice. He has one of the top practices in San Antonio and keeps up on developments in medicine and equipment. He will say if something is not his expertise and will send you to a specialist. I do rescues at times and have a number of dogs and cats. Some have had some conditions requiring expensive tests. He discusses the pros and cons of testing if you ask. If your animal is elderly or very ill, then he is not aggressive in treatment or testing - always keeping in mind the quality of the animal's life. As noted with other reviews, he is not cheap - neither is he the most expensive. But you are getting an excellent vet with an A&M education, who has kept his education current. His practice is also not a pharmacy for people who are not clients. If you do not intend to bring your animal for annual exams, he will not sell you meds as was noted by another reviewer. I had a diabetic cat and diabetic dog and never had any difficulty getting insulin. My dog lived with diabetes for 8 years and I consider Dr. Kohnen very well versed in treating diabetic animals. I would add to all this that Dr. Kohnen and his staff are charming, friendly and helpful. His vet techs are great as is the groomer on premises.
The post below is very disheartening to me especially since I count the staff at Stone Oak as part of my family. I have taken all of my pets to Dr.Fernandez for the last 15 years and I couldn’t imagine going elsewhere. It appears to me that this family had a terrible experience based on their own lack of attention to detail. Every time I drop my pet off for boarding I read the ENTIRE BOARDING SHEET to make sure no protocols have changed since my last visit, and I make sure every detail of my dogs stay is covered. I appreciate the biannual exam that is given to my pets as it assures me my fur babies are in excellent health. All the receptionists have been nothing but helpful during my visits and every time I have any issues I get it treated in a timely and respectful manor. I understand everybody is entitled to voice their experiences and opinions, and I am voicing mine right now. If you have a bad experience based on your own negligence you have nobody to blame but yourself. I will continue to stand by Dr.Fernandez and his staff and will continue to recommend his clinic and bring my pets there for years to come. Best care in San Antonio with outstanding staff and prices!!
I have been bringing my dog to Northern Oaks for about two years now. I am very pleased with the amount of care he recieves when i bring him in. All of the assistants and receptionists are so happy to see him. Whenever i have a concern or question, all three of the doctors are quick to reassure me in whatever the situation may be. Most of the time it turns out to just be me being a paranoid pet owner, which brings me a lot of relief! This staff makes the health and well being of their patients priority and will always find time to meet their needs, whether its a nail trim or an emergency! They have a life-long client with me, thanks to their compassion and knowledge. The clinic was recently remodeled and looks top notch! Not to mention it is the only animal hospital i have been to that doesnt smell like animals! Whenever i am there, all staff is working diligently to ensure that there are no accidents or messes left of any kind. These are just a few of the many things that set this place apart from all of the rest. I definitely recommend Northern Oaks to any person who truly cares about their pets and wants the best care for them. Go by and see for yourself!!!

So, I would say there is little he has not seen. I would add to all this that Dr. Kohnen and his staff are charming, friendly and helpful. His vet techs are great as is the groomer on premises.
I went to the Becker Animal Hospital for the first time after 5pm with my 10 year old large dog who had a swollen red eye that was forming a ball under it. They started to get a rush of people as I was checking my dog in. They put us into a waiting room right away and we waited for about 30 minutes til the doctors came in. My dog was very comfortable with them the minute the doctors walked in. Both Dr. Youssef and Dr. Killi were extremely understanding and fully examined my dog's eye. Both of the doctors took such great care of my dog as if it was their own dog. They provided an estimate of the costs up front and fully explained all the tests they would conduct and how long it could take. They did a thorough eye exam with medicine which was roughly $150 and also gave him his annual shots for about $60. My dog has recovered dramatically in 1 day since it was related to allergies. My dog is extremely happy and himself again. Their prices are excessively affordable and the place is very nice and clean. I have to take my dog in for a follow up exam soon and I know my dog and I look forward to the next visit and future visits.
When I brought Angel into the waiting area she was immediately taken back with caring and concerned faces. Dr. Stewart helped me feel better about the attack that occurred on my cat by my family dog. Both Dr. Stewart and Dr. Woolley took their time making sure I knew what was happening with Angel at that time and what could happen in the near future. Her radiographs were explained to me as well as her procedures and surgery. I was able to see/visit with Angel immediately after her surgery and I spent some time with her as Dr. Woolley again explained what was going on with Angel. Tuesday there was a possibility Angel could go home, but Dr. Woolley and the staff got "hit" with a few unexpected emergencies. As a result, I didn't get a call about Angel (and didn't expect one", but... Dr. Woolley not only called me at 9:36pm to update me, he also sent a video of my recuperating kitty via iPhone!! Naturally, the whole family enjoyed that!!! Thanks!
I would trust Rob Cary with my two dogs on absolutely any occasion. For over two years, I've been taking my dogs to this facility for their grooming appointments, and I have also used Rob Cary's boarding services. After grooming, my dogs come back clean and smelling wonderful. When we board them, they are obviously well taken care of and return to us as happy as ever. In fact, one of my babies even ran back to the tech that brought her out to me because she enjoyed her time so much. Every staff member I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with has been courteous, kind, and above all respects and loves my dogs as their own. I would not hesitate entrusting the two furry loves of my life to Rob Cary for any of their grooming or boarding needs. I have had nothing but good experiences! If I did, I am confident the team at Rob Cary would do everything they could to make the situation right. Thank you for taking such good care of my furbabies!
Today i went in me and my husband with a stray we found, to come and find out he had worms and mange, the doctor did the exam and was great and when it was time to find out what treatment needed to be done, she sent one of tech to explain the treatment and i was very glad and happy she knew what she was talking about and answered every question i had and was very nice and concern and explained how mange happens, and meds it need what they do and even broke it down about heartworms, and gave me handout about info in case i needed them. Then after staying there and explaining everything she said if u have any question ask her there is no such thing as a stupid question if i got home and forgot to ask a question for me to call her and she would be happy to answer them i was like wow she really cares. Only if every pet clinic had a good staff person like this it would be awesome...
