My first time with two puppies and let me tell you .... I'm a hard person to impress but the entire staff on hand while I was there were PROFESSIONALS and will continue going there even if we move. You just can't find service like this anymore.

The doctor was very gentle yet did a thorough exam on my timid chihuahua. She liked them so much that she let them also trim her nails without a fuss. They did a professional scientific analysis of her condition and drafted an affordable plan for her recovery.

Chisholm Trail is my go-to for animal emergencies. They have always been helpful and respectful. I have seen at least 3 of the vets (large and small animal) and have liked them all. Pricing seems decent, no complaints!

What a great clinic and atmosphere! From the time we dropped off our fur baby to the time we picked her up, we were taken absolute care of by all the staff that was involved in her care. Everyone was very kind and helpful in our experience. We will definitely be back, and I HIGHLY recommend their wonderful service to anyone who is looking for a vet in the area! Thank y'all!

Just moved back into town and my chorkie needed a yearly check up and a dental exam. I have nothing but amazing things to say about this clinic! They were upfront with their pricing - and it is very reasonable. We got a tour of their boarding and it was nice, clean, and there was plenty of room for fur babies to run around. My dog has severe anxiety over everything, and they made him and us feel great about the whole appointment. We'll be returning for the ultrasonic dental cleaning. 10/10 recommend this place, the staff (everyone we talked to) was SO friendly!
