15 years of excellent care 1/3/2010

Through many of my show dogs and puppies over the years, parvo, dog fights and other illnesses, Dr. Hudson and the other veterinarians at the clinic have always been there for me, even meeting me at the clinic after hours. Only a phone call away in an emergency, and always providing support when I've had to put a dearly loved dog down, with hugs and truly felt feelings by all the staff. They have all worked long hours my a litter which came down with parvo, even after hours, until they found a protocol which worked, one which wasn't even known, but which I had read about and they were willing to try, saving all but one pup (the first to come down with it) in a large litter at 3 months of age. Pros: Patient, thorough and caring, great receptionist and techs. Cons: a bit expensive but not as much as other vets in the area. more

Always great 11/6/2008

I am a long time client of Dr. Hudson's. Throughout the years, we have been through many pets with him and every time, no matter the situation, he has been very caring to their needs and our feelings. Most clinics seem to be all about the money, but Dr. Hudson has always been about what our pets need. Along with him, the staff has always been very friendly, and I recommend this animal hospital to everyone and will continue to take my pets here. Pros: Clean, friendly, caring Cons: Slightly expensive more

Great Experience 11/6/2008

Just recently I took my dog, Daisy, to DSAH because she had been struck by a car. I called, explained the situation, and asked if there were any appointments available. The receptionist was very kind, told me not to worry and to just come on in. Upon arriving, everybody seemed to be aware of the situation already and were very catering to mine and my pet's needs. Dr. Phillip came into the room immediately, examined Daisy, and very thoroughly explained his plan and my options (surgery or only splinting the leg he thought to be broken). Due to limited income, I chose option two, and left Daisy at the hospital for treatment. The technician that assisted Dr. Phillip was very kind as well and called me to let me know periodically throughout the day updates of their progress. I even had a very in depth consultation upon picking her up where they went over her x-rays, medications, and at home care. I have to say this was a great experience. The staff at DSAH are very kind, helpful, and caring. They even called the next day to check on Daisy. I will be going back from now on, and I highly recommend this clinic to everyone. Pros: Welcoming staff, clean facility, Doctor was very thorough Cons: Road construction leading to the hospital more

A great new vet! 8/19/2008

We went in for our annual exam today and met Dr. Philip. He acted very comfortable with our dog and performed a thorough exam. Dr. Philip answered our questions and offered advice, giving us options where it was appropriate. Dr. Hudson has been our vet for many years and we have seen a few of his associates come and go; Dr. Philip seems to be a good fit for DSAH. Over the years Dr. Hudson has seen all of our pets (ferret, bunny, dogs) and we could not be happier with the care he has given. Whether in an emergency or a scheduled visit, he has always treated our animals with love and respect and had their best interest at heart. Pros: great bedside manner, convenient, very competent vet and staff more

Do Your Research... 3/5/2008

We had a great experience with them at first but the second time we visited them was a totally different visit. Our first experience wasn't as crucial as the recent/second one which we will now look for another vet in the area. They didn't give us a good feeling for what they were doing nor told us what they were going to do or prescribe. Our dog has cataract and we went there to see if she was experiencing an eye infection or if they could tell us if she had an abrasion on her eye. They prescribed 6 meds and that time was critical and that we needed to take her to see an Austin Eye Specialist. They prescribed medication knowing it would affect her kidneys even after giving her the proper tests. After evaluating the situation, we decided not to do what they prescribed and talked to the vet. We ended up returning two meds that they prescribed and found out that they only reimburse us for 50% of the cost of the medications, saying that they have to pay for the costs of the employee who packages the meds, prints the labels, paying for the bottles, etc.-- That just blew us away and we will never go back to them again. Pros: Convenient - not very choices to choose from Cons: Doctor would listen to owners wishes more

Negligence Kills Puppy 11/28/2007

We had been using this vet since we adopted our two puppies from the rescue organization. We had received a coupon with their adoption when it came time to have them spayed or neutered. Dr. H talked us out of the free service that came with adoption telling about the methods clinics use that could lead to complications and was very convincing. So instead of taking Scout and Cinder where the operation would be free we went to DS Animal Hospital. That was the last time I ever saw the male puppy alive. The Dr. called me 3 hours after the operation saying that he took full responsibility for the negligence of his staff in miss setting the anasthesia machine which robbed my male puppy ""Scout"" of oxygen to his brain causing brain damage and heart failure. They revived him after 10 minutes of CPR but he was a vegetable by this time and they doped him up with valume for the pain. Then proceded to call me so that I could make the decision to put him down or not. The Dr. said that Scout would never be the same. The reality is we had to put Scout down of course as a result...Cinder his litter mate(and sister) was lost for 3 months always looking for him arund the house. A day doesn't go by that I don't think about him and a week doesn't go by that my emotions don't get the best of me. Based on the blatant disregard for my pet during this very simple operation- I highly recommend going to a different vet in the area. We have had much success with Sunset Canyon Vet. This was a very traumatic experience for my family and I would never want anyone else to go through what we have. Pros: Small Town Feel and attention Cons: Spread too thin- not enough expertise and attention to detail more

Great Staff and Doctor 7/18/2006

We are new to the area and used City Search to find a veterinary clinic in our area. Since this was an unexpected visit I had no records with me, the staff contacted my previous vet and had my records faxed to their office. Everyone was kind and efficient. A small clinic, family friendly. Pros: Pet friendly, great parking, small office more

Goes above and beyond 3/10/2006
