Let me first say that I've used vets in Five different states for everything from horses and livestock to dogs and cats. These folks are as good as it gets, and I've had some good vets. Recently, our little dog, Bailey was rushed to a 24 hour facility at 2am with a very high fever. The care was courteous and with quality, but the suggested 'tests' were estimated between $500-$800. The clinic would close at 8am (now 4am), so, I would have to pay $255 transfer fee, or relocate her myself. After concluding that she was in no immediate danger for the next few hours, I took her home, and then to KIngshighway as soon as they opened. The care was professional and prompt as usual. The entire treatment, including xray, blood, urine, et al, with 2 weeks rx's was $161. Dr. Gowan calls you at home to check on the pet. If you leave a pet, they call you 2x a day with updates. The office staff is kind, courteous,and helpful. They offered coffee.
Folks, I know many vets, I've worked with many vets, I have vets as friends. The team here is just simply unbeatable for level of care, service, and price. You simply CANNOT do better for your pets! If you live in Austin, San Antonio, Lockhart, or the HIll Country, drive the extra miles and save money. You may very well save your pet, too! If you're already in San Marcos area, this is a 'no-brainer'
