“Neartown Animal Clinic has a wonderful surgical specialist on staff. If you want a smaller, more personal place than the huge hospitals like Gulf Coast or Bay Area, visit with Dorothy Murray, DVM.”

Great local vet, prices are worth it

I moved to Houston late last April, and a neighbor recommended Neartown to me. I read the online reviews and asked some friends, and a lot of them told me that it's pricey but worth the moolah. And it is. You get what you pay for. I totally disagree with the negative here. Dr. Murray diagnosed my dog with diabetes and told me that this is a very treatable condition. She went on, and tried to calm me down. I was actually angry, thinking that they misdiagnosed my dog, and took her to Heights. That was a waste of time! They re-diagnosed her, and said my dog was so far gone, she needed a $800 blood transfusion! So I frantically went back to Neartown, without an appointment, and Dr. Murray was in surgery. I waited only 15 minutes before she came out, and told me that she didn't need any blood transfusion, she needed a glucose curve, some insulin, and some hospitalization. All of that was less than the uncalled-for blood transfusion that Heights wanted! My baby is in great health now! She is expensive, but she's worth it. And it's worth it to use Neartown animal clinic. All the doctors are knowledgeable, and the one doctor that I didn't think knew anything about anything (Dr. Dailey) is no longer employed there. Which says something about the clinic's management. They only have the best of the best.

I agree with the previous poster. Horrible vet, prices and all. I wouldn't go here, but in the end it is your money and pet.

Terrible clinic, all about money.

I have not taken my animals back to this place for 2 years, because they overcharge like crazy. Unfortunately I didn't remember by how much. Simple exams and vaccinations for two poms cost $350. What the hell? The crazy thing is, they always give the dogs a two stage fecal exam for heartworm and charge a little over $50 for each dog even though the dogs are taking their heartgard. Just outrageous. Stay away from this vet. They are trying to make up their lease in an expensive area of town by raping their customers. The vets dress like they are going shopping at the galleria instead of taking care of animals, just a damn shame.
