Keeping Your Pets Healthy

At Allandale Veterinary Clinic, we emphasize proactive, preventive medicine to keep your pets healthy longer. We can’t protect your pet from the possibility of contracting an illness or developing a chronic condition, but regular checkups coupled with proper prevention can give your pet the best chance for a long, happy life.

We recommend annual wellness exams for most pets and semi-annual exams for senior pets. At your pet’s checkup, we will conduct a complete physical exam and discuss appropriate diagnostics (such as bloodwork) that can help our doctors monitor your pet’s health and spot problems early on.

Proper Prevention

  • Vaccines. Vaccines prevent a host of potentially fatal diseases. The rabies vaccine is required by law, and your Allandale Veterinary Clinic doctor can explain other vaccines that best address your pet’s risk factors.
  • Pet parasites. Heartworms, roundworms, fleas, ticks, and mites love the warm Texas weather, so diligence is key when it comes to parasite prevention. Your veterinarian can help you choose the appropriate treatment.
  • Microchipping. Implanting a microchip is as simple as administering a vaccine, and can help you reunite with your pet if he or she ever strays.
  • Weight and nutritional counseling. Proper nutrition is important throughout the life of your pet. Your doctor can recommend an appropriate diet that addresses the individual needs of your pet.

You Know Your Pet Better than Anyone

Your pet’s wellness visit is also the best time to discuss any changes in your pet’s behavior, mobility, and eating habits, and to ask your veterinarian what you can do at home to optimize your pet’s health. It’s often easier and more beneficial to discuss subtle changes when your pet isn’t sick and your attention isn’t focused on an illness.

Call us today to schedule your pet’s next checkup.

Our BELOVED longtime vet, Dr. Stephanie Baker, is the absolute best. She's brilliant, funny, caring, personable, understanding and cares so much about her patients. There's no one like her and we are beyond grateful for her. The receptionists and vet techs are also amazing at Allandale and we are very grateful for them too.”

Super friendly and knowledgeable. Dr Mohammed and the staff are helpful and patient in explaining all options. Everyone, including the front desk staff seem to know and like my dogs.”

I take my old man to Dr. Mohammed, she's absolutely wonderful. I'd been to a few vets before and felt like I was being rushed (I ask a lot of questions) and not actually addressing the source of my pet's issues. I'd done three courses of antibiotics for him and wasn't seeing results. Dr. Mohammed gave him a steroid and suddenly he's not coughing all the time. Thanks for fixing up the ol'guy!”

I'be been taking my cats to Allandale for the past 1.5 years and have been extremely impressed with the quality of care provided. I have two senior cats with different health issues, and was concerned our previous vet wasn't providing enough options for treatment. A friend recommended Allandale, and I'm so thankful we made the switch. ”

My favorite veterinarians and vet techs ever! The vet techs are great at helping your pet feel safe and calm. Dr. Skiles saved my cat’s life!”

Love this vet! Dr. Mohammad is funny, caring and down-to-earth. She takes care of both my dog and cat with the same amount of tenderness. She is open and honest, while providing the necessary information. We don't feel judgement when we are there. Have seen other Doctors and Dr. Mohammad is our favorite!”

The entire staff was incredibly kind and personable. Our routine check-up was unrushed and Dr. Bello took the time to incorporate wellness education into our visit, making the visit (and the price) even more worthwhile. His more hollistic approach to vet care was incredibly refreshing and unique and I never once felt pressured to seek unnecessary preventative treatment or purchase expensive food. The tech was awesome and her assistance in keeping my cat calm and comfortable.”
— Sarah
This is absolutely my favorite clinic ever. Dr. Mohammed is absolutely amazing. She takes the time to sit down with her patients and owners. You can tell she genuinely loves her work along with the furry critters she helps. The tech staff are amazing, so helpful. I've definitely called for advice multiple times on whether to come in or not. They are always super honest and have your back. Been going to this place for years and have yet to have a bad experience. Thank you for all yalls hard work!”
