Wonderful place to take your animals! I have taken my ferret here since he was only a few months old. They really know how to take care of your animals as if they were their own. I really appreciate how they treat my ferret, who is my son, and how they treat me, as a concerned parent. I will always bring him here and no where else!!

I am so thankful to have this clinic to take my animals to! Dr. Fronefield is the very best vet I have ever known. He fearlessly deals with my macaw that is scared to death and hissing. Next thing you know he is holding her and calling her Sweet Pea! ha! Cured her from lead poisoning too. The staff goes the extra mile also. Wonderful place!

ABC Animal and Bird Clinic is first class I have been taking all of my animals to this vet for more then 4yrs now - I'am very pleased with this Clinic - I have 5 Standard Poodles and Miniature Schnauzer and two birds. Staff at the front desk are wonderful and Doctors are first Class. I would not trust any other Clinic to Care for my animals but ABC - IF YOU WANT TOP OF THE LINE CARE FOR YOUR PETS THIS WOULD BE THE PLACE

Well, I've read quite a couple of review that ABC clinic was pricey. My dog(Leo) recently got neutered there...cost me about $300+. But with the care and attention from Dr Fisher and her staff there. I think it's all worth it. They even call to check on him the very next day. Thats awesome ! Pricey ? Not really .. dont just look at the price. Look at the whole package, the TLC they give to your pet.

We have been taking our 3 dogs to ABC for 11 years. The entire staff is wonderful and knowledgeable. If all vets had state of the art equipment like ABC does and if they attended seminars, etc to keep up to date on animal care as ABC vets do, they would also be among the top vets as the ones in the Sugar Land ABC Clinic are. They all know my dogs by name and my dogs feel comfortable with the vets and the techs. I love all of the employees there. They have ALWAYS done an excellent job over the past 11 years. They are very compassionate. When I had to have Zac put to sleep last year, even the vet had tears in her eyes. She handled him with care as she took him away. She gave me options as to how we would like his remains handled. We chose their option to have his ashes scattered over a park where other animals who had passed away were. I appreciate them and their love for pets so very much and I thank them for the great care they have always given our dogs. T Campbell

In a nutshell, my experience is that this vet likes to go overboard with shots and everything without first saying what she's doing and without telling me what she's giving my dog. There are some things our dogs don't need. Some vets do a lot of overkill with de-worming before the test resuls come back and giving bordetella when it's not necessary. Without going into details, I don't trust this place. My gut said, it's all about how much they can sell you and aren't concerned about the dog at all. Dr. Blackhert can have a bad rep at times but at least he doesn't push more that what's necessary and he explains everything before giving shots. His prices are reasonable too. He seems genuinely to care about the animal. ABC is all about how much can we sell you. We won't be going back.

Very good clinic and Vets, especially for birds and exotics. My only concern is that they are VERY conservative with pets who may be suffering (By this I mean that they almost never want to talk of euthanizing). We had two cases, one rat and one guinea pig. In both cases, they were well beyond normal life span, losing both hair and the use of their back legs. We loved these pets and it hurt to see them suffering. ABC vets said this was normal for the age and gave them vitamin shots. In both cases, they each continued struggling and died in their cages within 48 hours of the vet visit. This discouraged me from taking my elderly 15 year old dog to them when he began suffering a serious age related illness. I went to another vet in that case so that all options for my dog's well being would be considered.

Won't be back. We took our dog here for boarding. I called twice for a quote, gave my dog's weight, had his vet records faxed over, went in for a tour (the kennel care-takers are nice) and got a printed quote. When we dropped our dog off for boarding, we were given a whole new quote that was more. They're excuse was, "Oh well, the girl who quoted you was new and left off a bunch of fees". Excuse me?! And she made no apology, only that "Oh well, I was new once and people make mistakes." Horrible service at the front desk.
Then when we picked our dog up, apparently she did the estimate wrong too because they tried to charge us more money! The kennel care takers were good, the groomer did a good job, but the front desk workers are horrid! I won't be back because of the people in the front - they are the first impression and I was less than impressed!

I find it very interesting that all the bad reviews of ABC have focused on the price. Folks, you get what you pay for. ABC is a full-service, multi-vet animal hospital with diagnostics you would have to see a specialist for if you went to a smaller practice. They also maintain a groomer and kennel on site. If you have a common breed dog or cat with no major medical issues or you are the type of person who doesn't put their pets high on the family budget, a smaller neighborhood clinic might be just fine. But, if you have an exotic, an unusual breed, or a pet with a chronic condition, ABC is the place for you.

ABC treated our chinchilla until she passed of old age. The compassion they showed in her final days was of great comfort. Now, they care for our havanese dog. They have successfully brought her severe allergies under control and she's thriving. Their groomer is excellent. The kennel staff is loving. I have always been provided with an estimate that listed the high and low potential cost, and they've never gone over the high end. They've never added anything to treatment without calling us first. The heartworm and allergy meds are provided at the same cost as the internet mail order sites, once you add shipping costs.

It's all a matter of your priorities.

Edited to add: Only one negative...during busy pickup hours (5-6PM) the staff can be a bit rushed. If you are picking up after an exam, make sure to ask if there are discharge instructions or med. Sometimes they forget to look.

Dr. Fronfield has been my vet for 18 yrs. His additions of Dr's Fisher, Roset & Micaheli have only added security of great pet care. I have 4 Shar-pei. Three are actively being shown & senior who is retired. They keep my kids in tip-top shape. They research & keep up with Shar-pei health issues. Dr's Fisher & Fronfield delivered my last litter of pups emergency C-section. All healthy & safe. New puppy medical excellent, post partum excellent, adult & senior dog care excellent.

PS: I've personally seen the volume of abandoned animals cared for at this clinic. It's not small. They're loved and treated like our pets, spayed/neutered and placed in loving homes. Some live out their lives at the clinic, loved by the staff and clients. The clinic & staff eat this expense. Good care is not free, neither is the continuing education that enables excellent care. You can't charge for compassion, it has to be genuine; you will find the doctors and staff are passionate about their work and compassionate about the care of our animal kingdom.
I brought in a rescue Shar-pei Pup this past year, as well. The boy was in full fledge Familiar Shar-pei Fever episode, consumed in fleas, and dehydrated. Many pei die of this disease every year. The relinquishing owner had no idea what was wrong with him and no money for vet care. Dr. Fisher saved his life. This isn't a common text book problem. It was no 20 minute diagnosis and administer meds. He was admitted with a temp of 105.8 and stayed on IV. Conquering his horrible condition took several hours - well past time to go home. Who checked on him & kept him from dying? The doctor. The owner failed to admit having given him aspirin! It caused more problems. Some how, I don't think the doctor just happened by the clinic at 11:30 PM. She was checking on the boy. She called me several times over the course of his stay and treatment. When I retrieved him 4 days later, he was vastly improved and ready for rehab! Shar-pei rescue has placed him. He's a healthy dog - having more than doubled in size. He now has an owner, who can afford his care.
Animal medicine is not McDonalds, nor is it one treatment fits all. This clinic fits the medical care to the specific pet. That matters. The rescue puppy mattered, as much as my show dogs.

We have a diabetic Pomeranian who was diagnosed almost two months ago with auto-immune hemolytic anemia with other complications. Many dogs don't survive more than 24-48 hours with this disease. Most don't survive more than a couple of weeks. These amazing docs quickly diagnosed the problem, and thoroughly researched treatment options for her that were customized to her special circumstances. They would spend as much time talking to me as I needed to understand what was going on and answer my questions. They would even call me with updates on her condition. The technicians and staff went in to love on her regularly during her stay. They would even bring her canned chicken (paid for out of their own pockets!) to entice her to eat when she wouldn't, patiently feeding her by hand, one bite at a time. There's not enough space on this website for me to tell all they did to care for and heal our little girl, and to reassure me. Bottom line: ABC docs, technicians and staff had all the medical skill and technology to care for her; but perhaps more importantly, they poured every bit of their hearts, minds and compassion into loving her back to health, that's why she's still with us today. I love 'em!

I have a ferret named DD that has IBS or inflammatory bowel syndrome. First time I took him to Dr. Fronfield he diagnosted his problem right on the spot. I have been dealing with this problem for over one year and I could not have done it without Dr. Fronfield and Dr Rosette's knowledge. They have help me keep my ferret alive all this time with their wonderful care and understanding of ferrets. I can't say enough about the front desk staff which is always willing to work me in when I'm having an emergency with DD or to get the doctors to call me for any questions. When you become a pet owner you have the responsibility to keep your pet healthy with good veterinarian care. It's is entirely up to you where you take it and what kind of quality care your pet receives in return. I highly recommend ABC Clinic and their doctors. It sure have made my life easier.

I had heard about Dr. Fronfield for a long time, but this office is kind of far for me to travel with my birds. I'm sure it was over an hour to 90 minutes. We took in a rescue macaw recently, so I decided to try ABC and Dr. Fronfield. He spent plenty of time with us, explained things. This abused bird stepped right up for him. Usually when i take birds to the vet, they come out looking extremely stressed and "beat up". This guy's feathers weren't ruffled in the least! I highly recommend him and the clinic (everyone was very nice) and will definitely take all my birds there. The price was NOT bad at all, really. Better than I expected!

Hello,I want to let everyone know how a very unpleasant experience was made better because of the wonderful staff at your clinic. The time came to put my beloved kitty, Dotie, to sleep. I had never gone through this process and wasn't quite sure what to expect. Each time I called, the employees were very patient with me, explaining the procedure and allowing me to ask questions. The day before the procedure, I even called to change appointment about 3 times! No one ever showed any impatience with my difficulty sticking to one appointment.Though we felt that we were prepared to let Dotie go, we pretty much lost it when the time came. We were invited to visit with our kitty as long as we needed. Everyone showed such compassion and seemed to truly be concerned about us, even telling us we could call if we just needed to talk.I am truly grateful to the entire staff for their kindness and professionalism. A very special thank you to Trevor, Rebecca and Dr. Fisher. Sincerely,Angela, George, Timi and Cali

I have taken over 60 animals to ABC Animal Hospital. I was a Ragdoll cat breeder in Sugar Land & took my litters of kittens in for early heart exams. Dr. Roset always gave me & my kittens extra time to be sure they were healthy. I lost a stud at 12 months--he died of sudden HCM. Dr. Roset performed the necropsy & coordinated board-certified pathology at Ahntech. She also shipped his heart to Washington State U, Dr. Katherine Meurs' lab, for further research & did much research herself on this disease.

One Ragdoll Queen had dystochia, caused by a sideways kitten--Dr. Fronefield assembled an emergency Caesarean team in about 5 minutes after diagnostic XRay (digital, of course!). A few days later, she developed pyometra which Dr. Fisher caught; we spayed her late in the day; Dr. Fisher waited until Aurora had recovered at 9PM at night for me to pick her up. ABC had closed at 7PM so this was incredible that she personally monitored my Queen's recovery from major surgery!

My Irish Setter Paddy was unconscious & blood was coming out of his mouth of other orifices when I got home from work. ABC coordinated the ER care at Hwy 90 clinic overnight. Then Paddy ended up at Gulf Coast Vet Services in the Galleria with a grave prognosis--DIC or Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation. With 3 IVs in each forearm, he ultimately survived.ABC did his followup care for the next 6 months including 2Xs/day heparin shots for the first month.. Next, Paddy fell running in a creek at Greatwood; Dr. Fronefield procured an orthopedist within 24 hours who did a meniscus implant at ABC on a rotating assigment. Today in the Atlanta area, at age 11, Paddy is climbing the mountain that is our back yard and then RUNNING down it (don't tell Dr. F:)).

The staff at ABC is nothing but extraordinary & incredible; countless times I've called with feline or canine ERs and they have ALWAYS found the right vet to get the right answer on time! Office Manager Molly is a joy & she picks the right folks to back her up.

If you check with comparable full service clinics or board-certified vets or specialty vets such as feline vets, you will see that their costs are quite in line with a full service clinic with outstanding OR facilities.I was given a Breeder's discount & also allowed time to pay for Aurora's ER surgeries as she was on IVs for 12 days & much more. I had to syringe feed her Science Diet AD for 4 weeks every 3 hrs. because she could not eat on her own; the staff gave me total encouragement. Today, she is nearly 13 pounds & thriving. I can't believe she was almost dead only a year ago at 8 pounds with loss of 5 kittens & two major surgeries.

Better yet, check out my SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO ABC on my web site where over 120 photos of their back room facilities might give you a keener appreciation of what it takes to run a first-class facility. It's at www.RibbonsNRagdolls.com

We love you, ABC!!

Next, Paddy fell running in a creek at Greatwood; Dr. Fronefield procured an orthopedist within 24 hours who did a meniscus implant at ABC on a rotating assigment. Today in the Atlanta area, at age 11, Paddy is climbing the mountain that is our back yard and then RUNNING down it (don't tell Dr. F:)).

The staff at ABC is nothing but extraordinary & incredible; countless times I've called with feline or canine ERs and they have ALWAYS found the right vet to get the right answer on time! Office Manager Molly is a joy & she picks the right folks to back her up.

If you check with comparable full service clinics or board-certified vets or specialty vets such as feline vets, you will see that their costs are quite in line with a full service clinic with outstanding OR facilities.I was given a Breeder's discount & also allowed time to pay for Aurora's ER surgeries as she was on IVs for 12 days & much more. I had to syringe feed her Science Diet AD for 4 weeks every 3 hrs. because she could not eat on her own; the staff gave me total encouragement. Today, she is nearly 13 pounds & thriving. I can't believe she was almost dead only a year ago at 8 pounds with loss of 5 kittens & two major surgeries.

Better yet, check out my SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO ABC on my web site where over 120 photos of their back room facilities might give you a keener appreciation of what it takes to run a first-class facility. It's at www.RibbonsNRagdolls.com

We love you, ABC!!

I had my pet there ONCE! Went there for one reason, by the time I got out, this doctor had takend every conceivable xray he could ( of course I paid dearly for that) I left there 500.00 poorer~~~ They really got me and wanted me to bring my pet back for further work they said this dog really needs,, dog was about 7 years old, was overweight and was put on some very expensive dog food ( the dog did lose weight) was given some mediacation, (that one was way high) They wanted the dog back for further x rays. Dog got rid of her problem which I will not go into here, but I am not sure now that she really had what they said she had based on an xray that at the time I believed, now, not so sure that was not a put up, they could have put anything in that xray to make it look like there was some huge stone inside the intestines,, and after months I got to thinking, that "stone" really looked fake, was very vivif on the screen and square,, almost perfect,, I think they "doctored" up the xrays to make it look like there was stone. They wanted to perform more surgeries costing over a thousand bucks!! Needless to say, I did not go back, the dog is fine, had her checked out by another vet, no sign of anything through xray..HMMMMMMM makes one wonder huh???? Well, reading other posts, I have to agree, this vet clinic is way overcharging for services, preying on pet owners who love their pets and who knows maybe being put through needless surgeries because they deemed an xray to show something that may not have even been there. AWFUL!!! I WOULDNT TAKE MY DEAD DOG TO THEM !!! The doctor was nice, but hey, I would be nice too if I were reaching into your pociets way down deep and preying on your love for your pet as they do. As far as the staff, they were snotty and non professional, didnt even act like they cared,, Sheese!!! My new vet, wonderful, cares about the animal and the owner and the owners ability to pay. I have even heard that my new vet will if he has to do a surgery for free or a small fee if he knows the family does not have and can no way afford for the animal to have the surgery and would otherwise have to let the pet suffer and die. I know ABC wouldnt do that,, too money hungry!!!

My wife and kids took our dog here and were very unhappy.
They called before they went and were told that they didn't charge to do an examination. They said if the dog needed shots or anything else as needed then it was a charge for that. Before they finished filling out the paperwork, they were told it would be a $185.00 fee to examine the dog. Good thing my wife had called around and found First Colony Clinic and they only charge $85.00 for examination and shots.
I don't trust companies that have no integrity

Dr. Fronfield was our vet for many years but unfortunately we moved and it was harder to get to his offices during business hours. I am seriously surprised by some of the reviews I have read. Dr. Fronfield gives you your money's worth in experience and special care. Dr. Fronfield and and his staff really take time with you and your pets. They do not rush you. They listen to your concerns, talk about alternatives. Dr. Fronfield is a very generous, giving person who treats all your animals like his own. A few years ago I had to put my dog down that I had for almost 14 years. He could not walk any longer and I was torn and didn't know if I was making the right decision. I had been told that I could try a doggie wheelchair, or that I could control some of my dog's pain, however Dr. Fronfield said these very simple words to me and I will never forget them. "You have a wonderful dog and we will all miss him including me, but you have to remember that it is his quality of live not the quantity that we have to think about. His quality is not here anymore. You love him...and you have to let him go. He was right....I had to let go and do the best thing for my pet, my baby, my family. I had to let go. Dr. Fronfield was just as emotional as I was during the procedure and that touched my husband and I very much. Dr. Fronfield truly cares!

Reconsider your negative remarks and try this wonderful vet again!

When evaluating a veterinarian and his staff, I place the utmost importance on skill/experience, professionalism and attitude toward the patients and their families. And because I'm also a nurse, I'm a pretty hard sell.
ABC Animal & Bird Clinic gets a five star rating because they are all that and more: friendly and prompt. I had an impacted (constipated) gecko that is now thriving and one of my dogs had a skin infection that I was told was a tumor by another vet. Dr. Fronefield knew immediately what it was and treated it aggressively. Needless to say, our dog Chili is back to his old self. Yes, they cost more than some other clinics but I will gladly pay that for superior all-around service!!!

In my opinion, one of the greatest challenges when searching for a vet is to find one with passion for animals, in-depth knowledge, and years of experience. Fortunately, I found all of these qualities in Dr. Fronefield and his staff (from my understanding the other vets are equally as qualified). While some people have complained about the cost, I do not feel it is expensive especially for the type of care being offered to your pet. Sure, I bet a pet store might be cheaper, but I would rather have someone who has had experience for many years taking care of my pet especially during critical moments. Since animals can not talk, it is up to a vet to interpret and determine what is going on with a pet's health based on symptoms, both visible and what the owner tells them. I feel the more experience vets have, the better their skills are for both diagnosing and treating pets. I applaud ABC because the vets and staff love my pets as much as I love them, and they are very good about educating pet owners, no matter how many questions one might ask (or not ask). I would never take my pet to another vet, unless there was an emergency and proximity was an issue, so much so that I plan on flying my dog back from California just to see Dr. Fronefield. Thank you ABC.

Dr Fisher took excellent care of our dog Millie. We felt she was in great and capable hands with her. We have been taking here to the hospital for several years and would never take her anywhere else. Dr Fisher tried everything she could to help her but we finally had to let her go and the doctor was very compasionate and caring.
Thanks,

I am a veterinarian technician but do not work at a clinic that serves exotics. I took my bearded dragon to ABC and was very satisfied. To all the people that have problems with the pricing of certain clinics and hospitals, just remember, if you go someplace that is cheaper, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! There have been plenty of times where my vet and I have to surgically repair what these "cheaper " clinics have butchered. And if you have any questions about your animal that you want addressed, just ask! It's hard enough trying to figure out what is wrong with the animal , let alone trying to figure out what the owner is thinking! By the way, the person that said "the vet tech took her temp and said 103 is normal ", sorry to burst your bubble , but the tech was right! Although 103 is staring to go on the high end of an animal's temperature , it is accurate ! Again , if you think that something isn't right or are concerned with price , any good Vet will try to educate the owner or figure out a payment plan.

I would like to thank the reviewers for taking the time to share their experiences while at our veterinary hospital. Without feedback, both good and bad, we cannot hope to improve our services. For those who express concerns that we are motivated by monetary returns, I would like to invite you to come by and spend some time at our hospital and see the amount of time, effort and compassion we put toward our patient's care. We run a full service, four doctor, veterinary hospital. We have similar equipment, medications and quality of care standards that top notch human hospitals maintain. We also have "indigent" patients (strays and abandoned pets) that we donate time, services and medications in an effort to help and eventually place them in good, loving homes.
There is an expense involved in providing quality veterinary care for your pet(s). There is no "up selling" in veterinary medicine. We will always offer the best care for the patient. It is up to the client to decide if that is the level of care they'd like for their pet. We provide a written treatment plan (including estimated cost) before beginning the treatment. Estimates are based on what the doctor anticipates your pet will need. As in human medicine, circumstances can change, and subsequently, recommendations can change as well. If this occurs we will provide a revised treatment plan. The exception to this policy is when we must stabilize an emergency case before we can take the time to provide a complete treatment plan..
Our doctors have over fifty years of combined experience in the field of veterinary medicine. We have a passion for our profession and the patients we treat. All of our veterinarians obtain over four times as much continuing education annually than is required by the state of Texas. We pride ourselves in being cutting edge veterinarians in a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital. Dr. Fronefield is one of only ten veterinarians in Texas that is Board Certified in Avian Practice. He and his associates share an interest in exotic animal care, although about seventy percent of the patients treated are dogs and cats. We welcome your comments and will use them to improve our practice. We'd love for you to come by for a tour of the hospital and to meet our doctors and staff.

I'm not sure if they are pricey or not. There are only a handful (and I mean that literally - as in like 4!!) avian Vets in the entire Houston area so it's not like I have a lot of choices. :-D

That being said, I think the doctors ARE very knowledgeable and know what they are doing (Contrary to what another poster said).

I was just there this past weekend for an emergency visit for one of my tiels and Dr Fronefeld saw my bird. He took the time to explain stuff to me and made sure I knew what to do with regards to giving meds.

Medical care is not cheap (for humans or animals). Unfortunately it is one of the areas people don't seem to give much thought to when deciding to buy or adopt a pet. :(

Dr Fronfeld himself is good (possibly even great if you're asking my wife). The staff are only so-so and the pricing is atrocious. Like other people commenting on this site, most eveyr time we visit, we're quoted one price and walk out the door having paid significantly more (yes, sometimes it comes close to double).

While the animal care does seem to be of a reasonable standard, unfortunately, it really does seem like the staff have been trained to upsell (this includes the 'nurses' not just the counter staff) and the pricing is simply too high to justify the service.

It would have taken me 3 parts to actually get it all down. All I have to say is. 1.Do not take your animal here if there is something genuinely wrong with him or her. They are not very knowledgeable nor do they care enough about animals to find out what is truly wrong with them. 2. Do not buy ANY MEDICATIONS through them, they will overcharge you DRAMATICALLY 3. Do not get your dog fixed here FOR GOD SAKE. They charge upwards of 350-400 Dollars where any reasonable place will charge you UNDER 150!!!!

These people are here only to see how deep your pockets are. I took our recently adopted 4 mth old pup there because she was having breathing problems, had a runny nose, was lethargic and not eating. The vet tech took her temp and said it was normal at 103!!! Further, they took blood and chest xrays and all the vet could tell me was that the film showed abnormalities but would have to consult with a radiologist to figure out what it was. They sent us home with a nebulizer, antibiotics and a dewormer. 2 days later when she didnt showing any signs of improving we took her to a VCA Animal Hospital. The vet there immediately said he suspects she has distemper because all her syptoms were classic. ABC never even mentioned the possibility! Even worse they knew we had another pup at home (she got her shots there) and distemper is highly contagious. Fortunately the older pup is up to date on her shots so her risk of contraction seems low. Bottom line is our new pup suffered unnecessarily for an extra 2 days because ABC is incompetent and all about money grubbing! Unfortunately we had to put the pup to sleep 3 days after visiting the ABC clinic. Thanks a lot for caring ABC (All Because of Cash)!!! You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

We are shocked at the poor reviews we have read here. Dr. Fronfield and has staff have saved our bird's lives on literally numerous occasions. Our cockatiel when we didn't know better than to feed her only seed and she developed fatty liver syndrome and our dear Lovebird who passed away last July after no less than 5 surgeries for wing and leg growths. They would come to the clinic on weekends and after-hours if we had an emergency - talk to us by phone after-hours if necessary even call us to be sure all was OK.Good service and quality doctors are not cheap and if you truly love you pet, price is not an option. We have NEVER felt cheated and we have ALWAYS received exactly the care / tests we agreed to and were told would be done. Costs were explained up front but that would not have made a difference anyway. They added 2-3 years of quality life for our Lovebird and for that we are eternally greatful.

this is the worst place I've ever took my pets to...i feel they are stealing,they charge one price and then they always say that they used more medication,or something else to make sure u pay much more then they told u before..they did lots of tests on my cat after all that,they told me they still not sure what is wrong with the cat,but somehow they keep giving him medication,and doing to him some procedures without knowing wt is the illness in the first place..i felt i was cheated when i took my cat there,and not only i feel they cheated me with the charges(which is ridiculously high),but also with the analyses and the testing that they did to my cat..i did a big mistake by going there,and i wouldn't recommend anyone to go there..it's not fair for u and it's not safe for your pet...

I took my dogs there for a couple of years, they would always say the cost was so much, but by the time we walked out it had atleast doubled, at times tripled!!! After switching vets, I have come to realize that ABC is pretty much stealing!!! They charge almost 4 times as much as other vets I have been to, and their services is just okay. At my vet now...Rosenberg Vet Clinic with Dr. Hester...my experience there is OUTSTANDING!!! The service is more than you can imagine and the prices are unbelievably affordable...

While at ABC, there were times where it just wasn't affordable, and thats not fair for the animals. Now, no matter what the issue, I can make the appointment and not worry about the payment, I know it will be okay!!!

My opinion...ABC is just ridiculous when it comes to price...and the service is just satisfactory! I do not reccomend this vet clinic for anyone!!! Even if I won the lottery, I wouldn't go back!!!

I just love all the people at ABC. The girls at the front desk are very friendly and very helpful. Dr. Fronefield is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. I found out that my new puppy has Patellar Luxation, which was very devastating to hear, but he was very caring, helpful and honest; whereas a lot of veterinarians in this town just aren't. I have a lot of confidence in this clinic. I know that when the time comes I will choose ABC for my puppy's surgery and ABC will be the clinic I go to for life!

This is the place to go if you have a rare or unusal animal or bird to care for. These people see and care for pets that regular vet's offices won't touch. They are very expert and provide top notch care for unusual pets.
