What Our Austin Clients Say

Dr. Fraser and Ben arrived on time and we’re super friendly and very helpful to my lab,Friday,who was in pain. After assessing her Issues and helping me with that they were able to fit in her annual visit today even though it wasn’t scheduled. This is extremely helpful! I will definitely be using them again for all my animals. Love it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Austin Texas a dog-friendly city?

Austin is known as one of the most dog-friendly cities in America, consistently ranking among the top on pet-friendly city lists. The city has ample outdoor space and activities catering to canines such as the Austin Puptopia festival in October. With its temperate weather, outdoor dining is commonplace and dogs are a welcome addition to many of Austin’s dog-friendly restaurants. In other cities you might struggle to find pet friendly activities, but in Austin there are lots of places that welcome people and their pets.

Does Texas require a pet license?

Texas State Law requires that all dogs and cats four months or older have current rabies vaccinations. Animal Control enforces this law by requiring all resident pet owners to show proof of their animals’ current rabies vaccination certificate when purchasing a city pet license.  However, the state of Texas leaves the licensing requirements up to the city or county. For example, Boerne City requires all cats and dogs to be registered and licensed with Animal Care Services, while Dallas only requires that you microchip your pets and you don’t have to register them with the city. Check the county and city for specific laws governing pet requirements.
