Our Clients say...

Sadie’s first South Dakota pheasant hunt was a success. You and your team did a great job, no hip problems at all...Thanks again for your expertise.

Not a day passes I don't thank my lucky stars to have found Dr. Kerpsack and CTVSH! My 7-year-old yellow lab Butter was experiencing unidentified pain for months with several unsuccessful treatments of steroids and bed rest. It broke my heart to see her in such discomfort. Thankfully my local veterinarian referred me to Dr. Kerpsack. Butter had an appointment the next morning and ventral slot surgery that afternoon. Dr. Kerpsack and the whole support staff at the clinic were extremely professional and incredibly compassionate. My stress was eased by their constant updates on Butter's recovery, their availability to answer my questions and their overall competence as a group. The recovery was not easy and longer than expected, but they were right there for me every step of the way. I feel I hit the jackpot in finding CTVSH! It is with great confidence I recommend their services.

I brought my cat, Bandit, in because he was having urinary issues and clearly didn't feel well. Amy at the front desk was helpful both on the phone and as we were waiting. Dr. Harding gave Bandit great care, gave me options on the estimate, and gave advice when she had different findings than what we expected. Amy gave excellent discharge instructions. Both of them were understanding of my two small kids, who had been up since about 4 and were understandably starting to go bonkers. While I hope we have no further after-hours animal emergencies, I will not hesitate to take my animals to them in the event that we do. It's clear that they care about the animals and want to do what's best for them.

Everyone from the front desk staff to the technicians and vets are so caring and straight forward. Cher, Chloe, Lori, Jenna, Hanke, Dr. Simmons, Dr. Kleinman were so helpful, honest and caring. Tiger is still fighting, but he wouldn't be where he is if it weren't for your care. Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Wow, the staff is very professional, courteous and they support the local wildlife by working closely with Wildlife Rescue (non profit/201C3). Late Sunday evening I found a wild duck with a fishhook in its eye and beak, Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin was open and able to remove both (treble) hooks without any damage the duck's eye; wildlife rescue then returned the duck to its natural habitat. Sincerest thanks and appreciation to Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin for going above and beyond.

Drew Tijerina

Dr. Walden was thorough, compassionate and skilled. Her assistant, Emily, was knowledgeable and kind. They both communicated well with us and helped to get our puppy back to health! Additionally, our entire visit lasted under 1 hour including exam, X-rays, diagnosis and administration of antibiotics...that is amazing efficiency for an emergency visit on a weekend night. Well done!

Elisabeth Potter

Came in for the first time tonight due to a random leg injury. Everyone was super nice and helpful. Price and the amount of time we were there was more than reasonable. Thanks so much for putting my mind at ease and making my baby comfortable. Excellent service all around!

I wanted to again thank Dr. Kerpsack for the amazing gift of saving my puppy's life. Lincoln was diagnosed with a liver shunt after surgery when he was 13 weeks old. That was 5 years ago. Lincoln has lived a great life, blessed many people and has enriched my life beyond words. Lincoln was certified CGC at 10mths, agility at a year, has done print ad work, a Time Warner spot on Austin Pets and won Austin's first hippie hound contest!... There isn't a day that I don't think of Dr. Kerpsack and his ability to save our precious pet. I am forever grateful.

Thank You for restoring Vinny's quality of life. Vinny is my 6 year old wirehaired Dachshund. After being diagnosed with IVDD he was experiencing classic symptoms of this disorder. I took him in on a Saturday night and they had him scheduled for spinal surgery with you the next morning. I visited Vinny each day during his 3 day hospitalization and noticed immediate improvement. He is now functioning as well as he was before his diagnosis. Again, my family and I cannot thank you enough for giving Vinny back to us and letting him enjoy a pain free life once again.

Just Your Average Kitty! Today is sweet Bear's 2nd birthday and I thought of Dr. Clark. I know he would not have made it this far without the Allergy and Dermatology department’s and her help. Thank you to Dr. Clark for the loving care given him. He's doing wonderfully! He seems like a normal cat to me - eats well and sleeps lots. Just your average kitty. The only signs of his pemphigus are his crusty eye ducts and sometimes around his nose. The rest of him looks great! Thanks again to Dr. Clark for getting my little guy this far. He is so dear.
