What Our Dallas Clients Say

These ladies are amazing! My dog has pain and anxiety issues that make it difficult to get him to the vet. So, having them come to him was the greatest! They were amazing with him and you could tell he was completely comfortable with them! Better Vet (Dallas) was the best decision I could have made!
Amy B.
Five stars
Extremely knowledgeable and personable in diagnosing my lab who is 12 years old with a fair amount of challenges. Dr. Melkus was very open, considerate and transparent considering the labs past and current condition and the path moving forward. Very timely response to my questions after the initial visit.
Jeff W.
Five stars
Honestly the best experience I’ve ever had with a vet. Obi is a very anxious dog and they made him feel safe in his own home with plenty of treats. He has definitely bit people before and I had biggest ease with them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Dallas a dog-friendly city?

Dallas has made great strides in recent years to become a dog-friendly city. You can explore the city and find plenty of dog-friendly urban spaces that allow leashed pets. There are also several dog parks in the area where dogs can be off-leash to let loose to have some fun.

Do I need to register my dog in Dallas?
The City of Dallas no longer requires pets to be registered or licensed. Instead, the city requires that all dogs and cats in the city of Dallas must be microchipped. A microchip is a permanent form of identification that includes the owner’s name, address, and contact information. To get a microchip for your dogs, make an appointment with Dallas Animal Services for $10 per pet, with the Spay Neuter Network for $15, or with your veterinarian. 
Do dogs have to be on a leash in Dallas?

The City of Dallas requires all dogs to be leashed or restrained at all times when in public areas, except in designated off-leash sites such as dog parks.

Do you need a license to own a dog in Dallas?

As of June 2017, the City of Dallas has replaced the previous pet registration system with mandatory microchipping. All dogs and cars four months and older in Dallas must be microchipped.

Is it illegal to leave your dog in the car in Texas?

In Texas, there are no current statutes that make leaving a pet in a parked car or truck illegal. The state does not have any Good Samaritan laws in place, making it illegal to break the window of a car to take out a pet left inside the hot vehicle. However, the person who left the pet in a hot car for an extended period may face animal cruelty charges in Texas.
