I cannot recommend a vet hospital I do not trust. After my experience on June 9th, I can never trust this vet hospital to properly triage a dog again. This hospital missed a life threatening internal bleed, which presented with almost textbook symptoms. Their lack of compassion and desire to learn from their mistakes showed us exactly the type of vet hospital this is.

We had a vet in Austin who mis-diagnosed our Rogue with limes disease. Because of this mis-diagnosis Rogue went for almost a year with an absessed tooth. By the time they figured out what was wrong and scheduled her for surgery, she had been running 104 temperature.
When they did the surgery, they released so much bacteria into her system that it exploded a valve on her heart. She still wouldn't eat and was so sick that she couldn't even walk in the park that prior to the surgery she would chase dogs and squirrels.
Finally we drove to Houston and took her to the Gulf Coast Emergency Hospital. They called us at 3 in the morning as Rogue had pneumonia and was dying. They had her in a cage made into an oxygen tent and she was so sick she barely knew we were there. They worked throughout the night and got her consulted by a Cardiologist all on Christmas Eve.
Because of them Rogue is healthy and is running and playing again. She will have to be on heart pills for the rest of her life but would have been dead if not for their around the clock care. Yes, they are expensive but have the qualified care givers working 24/7 and when is that not expensive?
