The Dodd facility has been upgraded to a larger space, more personnel and the same small town feel it has always had. Although I tend to the once-a-year approach, I do board my dogs for the annual two week vacation. The front room staff has been the same for at least a decade, so they know each customer and each customers' animals. Management is first-rate, in that the vets hire well-qualified and enthusiastic professional care support. \r
The philosophy of the hospital is to provide the care you can afford, and offer additional care when one is financially ready. They don't push the meds. They don't push the elective invasive practices. They simply offer choices that you can engage in at a later date. [my dog needs a deep teeth workout, but it involves anesthesia, and a night's stay...i was given an offer of treatment available for the next six months for a reasonable $250...so know I can save for that].\r
Great staff, TAMU-educated doctors, and a southside gem. You can't find better.
Pros: Vets, Staff, Service
Cons: None that I have found...
