Dr. Stiles may be a cranky, country cuss, but he's the best vet anywhere. We've been to nearly a dozen vets in four States (TX, ME, IN, NV) and despite his lack of charm with people, he's well educated, extremely experienced, humane and brilliant with the animals. He's helped us save numerous rescued cats and dogs, as well as an assortment of ""exotics"". If you look around his place, you?ll see a huge variety of creatures, large and small recovering well. Our Great Danes lived to be 12 and 16 (ancient for Danes) with his care. When the older one was suffering from severe arthritis and lost bowel control, he was immensely tender in his treatment of her and quickly eased her pain? the huge mountain of dog poo in his room didn?t matter at that moment. We had a Dalmatian with a broken neck, he outlined the possibilities and costs, sent us to the specialists with the most advance equipment and called ahead to make sure we got worked into their full schedule. I?ve sent several people to him and all have had glowing reports of their pet?s care with him and his excellent staff? however, more than half mentioned he seemed a bit gruff with humans:)
Pros: Great with the animals, acurate and reliable. Easy on the wallet.
Cons: Waaay out in Leander.
