To the staff at Dodd Animal Hospital,

You do not know me, but while I had to stay in Freeport, Texas during hurricane Rita, Y'all helped me and my family by taking our animals in. By you doing that my daughter and parents were able to get a hotel instead of sleeping in their cars in a parking lot. I work for the police department and was already overwhelmed. You lifted alot off of me when I found out you took the animals in and my family was safe. So I just want you to know that I am very greatful for your kindness  and for taking such great care of all our babies during that crazy time.

Thank you,

Dr. Vestal and Staff,

Just a short note of big thanks for all you do. Not just for Rascal but for all our babies. The level of care given is always top notch. The compassion and caring is what makes your hospital special to me and my family. Thanks for always being there for us.

I would like to say a very special Thank You to Dodd Animal Hospital. Lucy means the world to me and Dodd took very good care of her. I took Lucy in to get her very first puppy shots and now here we are getting her spayed and having her microchipped. Not once in all my visits have I encountered any rude staff.  I called numourous times to check in on Lucy and the whole staff was very patient with me. This was the first time Lucy has ever been away from me and it was difficult. The Staff and the vets were so good at explaining things to me and even called to give up dates on Lucy. Thank you Dodd Animal Hospital fopr taking such great care of my Lucy and all the other animals out there.

To Dodd Animal Hospital and Staff,

We want to thank you for being so caring , thoughtful and kind at a time that was very difficult for us. It is so hard for us to lose a pet for they are a very special memeber of our family. Silky was a delightful and precious kitty to us, and we miss her dearly. We had so many visits to Dodd and each time you were all so very kind to us. It takes very special people to work with animals and you all are just beautiful. Thanks again for everything you have done and continue doing for my babies.

Dear Dr Vestal and Staff,

 For 30 years now I have trusted you to care for my animals.  I know how hard you work to do everything posible to save an animals life or compassionatly let them go. Never more have I appreciated your help than when you helped us with Destiny this weekend. Thanks for being such a caring and compassionate vet.

 Dr.Vestal and Staff at Dodd Animal Hospital,

My wife and I would like to express our thanks for all the hard work you all provide to your clients and their beloved pets at Dodd . Most places don't take the time to help their clients anymore than they have to. This is not the case with you all at Dodd. We have been taking our children (dogs) to you all for some time now. This last month has been quite unsettling in that one of our dogs "Dolly" lost her fight with cancer. This was a very emotional goodbye for us since this was our first loss of any of our babies. We hate to see them suffer ... we want them with us as long as possible. Our dogs have given us unconditional love and we cannot forget that . During our time of loss, evryone at Dodd Animal Hospital was there for us providing comfort and understanding through this hard time. We thank every last one of you for all that you do and we will continue to take all of our family to Dodd.

Thank You

I first became aquainted with Dodd Animal Hospital 10 years ago when I brought our dog Jingles in.  A specialty hospital in Houston had done surgery to repair a torn ligament and had operated on the wrong leg by mistake.  Dr. Vestal harvested two ligaments and repaired the leg returning Jingles to his old self.

Four years ago I brought our adopted Romeo infested with every parasite imaginable and in very poor condition.  The efforts of Dr. Vestal got him back to the 'gentle giant' we now enjoy.

Bo, our 11 year old mixed lab, was recently diagnosed with a lipoma throughout his throat area.  I took Bo to a specialist who said that surgery was risky and suggested that I take Bo home and make him comfortable until he passes away.  Unable to accept that answer I again made the trip across town to Dodd Animal Hospital where Dr. Vestal offered to remove the tumor.   I have just picked Bo up from the surgery and he walked out of the hospital and jumped in the car ready to go on with his life.

Dr Vestal and his staff have been taking care of my pets for over 25 years. We have had many wonderful relationships with the different staff members. Most of the employees stay a very long time, they seem to love their jobs and certainly are good to clients and pets alike. I drive from the far north side to bring my pets to Dodd and would not ever change.
