I think maybe SnowBelle would like a companion kitten? She's almost 4 yrs old now and is so sweet! Any advice?
a few friends have lost members of their fur family lately and I love seeing the posts you share of so many great animal friends. I wanted to share a portrait of my dear Luna. I miss her still. Original Paintings By Artemiy Wlady

Highsmith Animal Hospital has been our vet for twenty years. We have always had between 2 & 4 pets both dogs and cats. We have referred many pet owners to them. Jennifer called yesterday at 2:50 pm when it was apparent that one of our 3yr old golden retrievers needed immediate medical attention. She had what began as a small hot spot below her left ear. We had treated it with antibiotic ointment when it began on Sunday. Between Tuesday & Wednesday it quadrupled in size and went from the side of her swollen face almost to her front left leg. She was told that THEY COULD NOT SEE HER. They told her to take the dog to the College Road Animal Hospital(closed for renovations) or to the Emergency Vet on Greenville Loop. I called & spoke with the office manager and was told the same thing. We wasted an hour begging them to see our pet. THIS IS THE SERVICE YOU GET FOR 20 YEARS OF BUSINESS?????
We called another vet in town. They took minimal info over the phone and told us to bring her in immediately which we did. The doctor told us that she had not seen a hotspot that bad in a very long time. They treated her with steroids and antibiotics which seemed to help. She is doing much better today and will go back to our new vet tomorrow for a follow up.
Why would anyone do business with a vet that WILL NOT SEE YOUR PET IN AN EMERGENCY. WE WILL NEVER DARKEN THEIR DOOR AGAIN. DO NOT BRING YOUR PET TO THESE JERKS!!!!!
Dr Speck, Dr. Taloe, & Dr. Anderson are great!!! We have always been pleased with the care our pets have received from them. This post is NO reflection on them. The one experience we had with Dr. Highsmith was horrible. That experience combined with yesterday was all we could handle. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

General information

We are a full service veterinary facility with four staff Veterinarians. Not only do we offer outpatient care and treatment, we also perform many in-hospital procedures including dentistry, radiology, laser surgery, orthopedics, and well as hospitalization for illness in our ICU. In addition, we do routine boarding, bathing, the option to drop off your pet for his/her veterinary visits, and have a professional groomer on staff.

During a typical day, we perform many different procedures ranging in time from a few minutes to several hours for some operations. Therefore we ask that you schedule an appointment in advance whenever possible. We follow these guidelines when seeing patients: MEDICAL EMERGENCIES are seen first, then SCHEDULED appointments, and finally WALK-INS if time allows.

It is our desire to offer the BEST in veterinary care possible for your pet. The advances in Veterinary Technology have been astounding. We can now perform many procedures that were unheard of just a few years ago. If your pet requires special care or treatment, one of the staff veterinarians will discuss all aspects with you including costs. We absolutely invite inquiries regarding any of our services.
