And I would drive across country for this level of care for my furry family members! I truly thank Allen Veterinary Centre and the entire staff for taking such wonderful care of my girl Saphira."
    Patti P.
  • "We have cats. Vets and staff have been very understanding and accommodating when we can't catch one of them for an appointment, not to mention that they have made our cat's healthier. And sad but not least, they were such a comfort when we had to send our older cat to the Rainbow Bridge. I will never forget their compassion."

    Sherrian E.
  • "I brought my dog in August with some mysterious bumps. We had recently moved to the area. They were able to quickly detect that she had cancer and were very proactive with recommendations. The efficiency and education of the staff is amazing! The vet off the bat could tell that something was wrong with the size of the lump she had on her back. Meanwhile, about 3 months prior we had taken her to another vet and the vet wasn't alarmed and did not order any further testing. The three month difference was impactful because the tumor kept growing. We now live in Plano and still won't move vets because we trust their expertise and diligence."
    Luz I.
  • "I was delighted with how they offered a treatment plan in addition to the ambulatory care that she needed. They were clearly interested in her long-term progress, not just the immediate needs at hand.
    They helped us get the infection under control, kept her comfortable through the whole process and made sure I knew how to handle her aftercare without any ambiguity.
    Thanks to Dr. Koenigskneht, Dr. Davis and reception staff for your fast & friendly service and for helping me get my sweet little kitty cat, Tiny back to her old self."
