I live in Austin, Texas. This is a 3 hour drive for me to take my animals to see Dr. Kendrick. I have tried several different vets in Austin, but none have shown my animals the care that Dr. K does, period. He is, hands down, the best vet for all pets, i.e. ferrets, birds, dogs, cats, iguanas, guinea pigs, etc. etc. that I have ever found. He has an uncanny gift for finding exactly what is wrong with sick animals and has an extraordinary ability to heal. When I had sick ferrets or my dogs have become suddenly ill, he has met me at his clinic at 3am in the past. He became a vet because he loves animals and will do whatever is best for your beloved pet. If you don't have your animal's best interest in mind, you probably should not see this vet. But if you are looking for the best care you can find, then Dr. K is the right choice, even if you have to drive 200+ miles to see him.
Pros: Did I mention what a wonderful vet Dr. Kendrick is?
Cons: He is not living and working in Austin
