I recently adopted a six week old pit bull puppy. After having him at home for 4 days, my pup started getting very sick. Throwing up constantly, frequent diarrhea, and a complete loss of appetite. Immediately, I looked up the nearest vet available in the south Austin area and VCA Tanglewood appeared with generally good reviews. Upon arriving at the vet, the staff was indifferent towards my sick pup. I guess it was because I came in a half hour before closing time. Dr. Stried examined my pup, who threw up after his belly was examined. Dr. Stried deemed x-rays necessary. After the pup was x-rayed, Dr. Stried pulled me aside and explained what he saw in the x-rays and he openly said he knew for a fact my pup did not have parvo, but rather a foreign object in his abdomen. He was adamant against testing for parvo. He concluded by saying that my pup would need a $2,500 surgery or else he would die, but that he could under no circumstances do the surgery because my pup was too young. Through out the whole visit, Dr. Stried seemed almost clueless and couldn't offer any words of comfort. At the same time, I was trying to avoid bumping into the rest of the staff who were busy mopping floors, and cleaning table tops, rushing to leave work. I left the clinic in tears, feeling hopeless. The following day, I visited another clinic to get a second opinion as my pup's condition was worsening. Here, my pup tested positive for parvo and was quickly treated. He is now recovered, but I am still so upset that I ever trusted VCA and their incompetent staff with the life of my little pup. If you want your pets to live, DO NOT take them to this vet.

Need a vet in the FarFar South Side?
Good service. Helpful, friendly staff. The young vet is knowledgeable and seems to know alot about each specific breed.
I find it to be priced accordingly and don't feel the same complaints others had.

We were disappointed with the care our dog received here. We feel like we should have been given more information regarding the health of our animal. The regular vet seems knowledgeable, but not super friendly and doesn't tale the time to explain details. We actually like the "substitute vet" better. I think they care more about making money than providing the best care for animals.I would say this place is okay for routine pet care, but I would go elsewhere if you have specific health needs for your animals.

I first went to VCA Tanglewood Animal Hospital when I moved down the street and got my cat Makayla. She was having eye problems and sneezing a lot. It seemed as if she was always sick ever since I brought her home from the human society. I showed up and they were very welcoming and inviting. I did not know what to expect when I went to go visit this place. I loved the doctors. They were very friendly and just thought my cat was a beauty. Makayla had such a good time with the crew and everyone else. I love this vet now. Whenever Makayla has a problem I always turn to VCA Tanglewood Animal Hospital. What i loved the most is they follow up with you the day after to see how your pet it doing. They called me and asked me how Makayla was doing. Told them she was good and that's when they officially locked in my business with them. I totally recommend this place to people in need of a vet. the staff is friendly and welcoming. Enjoy!!!

I found VCA from the Humane Society after I purchased my puppy. I have been taking my dog to them for 2 years now. The staff is curteous and helpful. I never have a problem getting my dog in for an appointment. I can even get a same day appointment when necessary.

Dr. Streid is my dogs primary doctor. He is very patient with me and my questions. They are very quick on call backs and always send out my reminders for shots, well visits, etc.

The office is always clean and never over crowded. THe most I have every waited for my appointment is 10 minutes. The price is comparable to other vet clinics.

I would recommend them to anyone in the South Austin Area who may be looking for a vet .
