Does anybody living in the Richardson area love their vet?

Before I moved, I took the cats to a place on Preston near 190. It was fine, but I didn't even have a regular vet there, so I'm not attached. I'm looking for something more convenient. I live in Richardson Heights.

Campbell Village at the corner of Campbell and Hillcrest, while I think the address is Dallas it's right there on the border of Richardson. Dr. Krug is a great vet, with very friendly staff who really care about their clients.

Thanks for the recommendation. I just remembered I started this thread last week!

I'm surprised it didn't get more answers, perhaps there is a shortage of good vets out there.

We tried a new vet off 15th in Plano. They seemed nice enough and the boarding fees weren't too bad for our Border Collie. But they insisted in removing her collar and then she slipped out of their leash while my wife was trying to get her into her crate. She took off running around the parking lot and no one stepped out to assist. (But to give them the benefit of the doubt, we don't know that they saw the commotion.)

Where is a good place to board our cat while we are in between houses?

Boy, that's tough. I can't give a recommendation because I always get a cat sitter when I go on vacation because cats so hate being boarded. Also it's more expensive than a cat sitter.

Maybe this will help.

I always hire a cat sitter, much less stressful and my "Little Monster" (because he was smaller than "Big Monster") loves his sitter. If you need to board them, my vet does that at a reasonable rate. The couple times I've had to leave him for test purposes, they were very caring and took excellent care of him. It is White Rock Animal Hospital on Northwest Highway across from Frey's. The address is 11414 E. Northwest Hwy 75218. Their phone is 214-328-3255.

I highly recommend them in general.

vseale, I think I've seen this place, I'll check, thanks. Also Deb, thanks for the link as well. We are going to be coming to Dallas, dropping off our boat and the boys hockey equipment and well as a few other boxes and one of the cars at a friends house and then heading to South Padre for 10 days until we close on our house in Dallas. I thought the cat would rather just stay in one place rather than being shuffled around in her cat carrier in the car until we get into our house. She is not use to traveling and will be bent out of shape I'm sure!

As much as they hate being boarded, I'm sure they hate extra car rides even more!

Let us know if you find a good boarding place, who knows, I may need it some day.
