  • We love Dr. Tabone and his staff

    -Vicky Brown from GLENN HEIGHTS, TX
    Pet Name: Honey

    I started going to Dr. Tabone over 23 yrs ago. He is one of the best vets that I have ever known. He is very caring and it shows that he loves animals. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful. Anytime I have ever had a concern, they were there to address my concern, plus, I'm treated like I am a friend and not just a client. I would recommend and have recommended this hospital to my friends and family. Thank you Dr. Tabone and staff for all you do!!!!

  • Thank you Dr. Tabone

    -David from Forney, TX
    Pet Name: Shasta

    My poodle, Shasta, lived to the age of 18. I owe this to Dr. Tabone and the staff of the VCA DeSoto Animal Hospital. I have two other poodles and will only use their services. I can never express my gratitude enough to Dr. Tabone and his staff for the care they gave my girl. Dr. Tabone is a very caring doctor and deeply cares for all of his patients. His knowledge and professionalism far exceeded all my expectations for many years. I drive a long distance to see him for the care of my dogs. I will trust no one else but him to care for my babies. Thank you Dr. Tabone.

  • My Beloved Jake and Years of Care

    -Sherry Miller from Dallas, TX
    Pet Name: Jake

    Jake, my dog of almost 13 years has had the privilege of being a patient of Dr. Tabone's for his entire life. The quality of care and concern that Dr. Tabone, Agnes, Kate, and everyone there has shown Jake is genuine and unsurpassed. I know that without Dr. Tabone, Jake would not have had the quality of life he was able to have in the past couple of years as we battled a myriad of issues. In February of this year, we knew it was probably months, however I was able to take Jake to the beach this past March and let him swim in the ocean, romp on the beach, and chase seagulls. His happiness that weekend is a memory that I will carry with me forever. Jake passed 9/11/2011 and my life will never be the same, however one thing I know I can count on always is the compassionate, concern, and quality of care that Dr. Tabone and his staff have shown me through the years.

  • I Can't Thank Them Enough

    -Pamela from Grand Prairie, TX
    Pet Name: Clyde

    Pet Image My dog Clyde had been sick for some time and we brought him to VCA and right away they figured out what was wrong with him. He had developed a flea allergy. Which was uncommon in adult dogs. They gave him the right meds and he is like a new dog, he is full of life again and has tons of energy. It is so wonderful to have my Clyde back. Thank You so much Dr Bollin and the rest of the VCA Staff.

  • Dr. Tabone - Professionalism and Kindness

    -Ross McBride from DeSoto, TX
    Pet Name: Dakota

    We have had three dogs taken care of by George Tabone for many years - Hunter, a Black Lab; Keno - a German Shepherd; and Dakota - a German Shepherd. One of the worst things you go through with your pets is a death. When we had to put down Hunter at almost 14 years old, Dr. Tabone aided our family in getting through that emotional time. When Keno suffered a heart attack, Dr. Tabone got us 6 more months before the second one took him. When it happened, the staff remained there until I could get Keno to them after closing time so he could be cremated. They cared. Now, they continue to care for Dakota, Keno's best friend, to keep him as comfortable and healthy as possible at his late age. I've had pets in other cities and Dr. Tabone's group is in a class by themselves. I will face pretty soon the loss of Dakota; but, I go into that knowing the attention, compassion and professionalism from my friend George and his staff will get me through it again. Thanks.

  • Thank you all

    -Charlie Bee from Denton, TX
    Pet Name: Little Kitty, Prissy, Frat, Daisy, Boomer, HARLEY

    I have been going to Dr. Tabone for over 20 years, the DR. is very caring with much knowledge, if he tells you something about your babies, take it to the bank. His staff are superb, very sweet caring people. I have moved 60 miles away, I miss everyone of you, thank you so much for what you did for me and my babies. Keep up the great service DR. Tabone, I wish you were closer, we will never forget you and your team. Thank You Charlie

  • VCA DeSoto Animal Hospital is simply the best

    -Ginny Mitchell from Waxahachie, TX
    Pet Name: Gus

    Pet Image I cannot imagine going anywhere but VCA DeSoto Animal Hospital. I guess truthfully I can say I'm codependent on Dr. Tabone for my cats and dogs. He has pulled them through so much over the years, my cat Adrian lived to be 19 years and 2 months thanks to Dr. Tabone, Austin my dog lived to be 19, I can go on and on, as there have been multitudes throughout the years, all from the streets. Kate Tabone is such a good and kind person, she always groomed my samoyed Kateland so beautifully for her therapy dog visits. She and my lab July shared a banana every time July would visit Kate. Everyone there is just beyond wonderful and I depend on them to make my animal's visits the most pleasant they can experience.

  • Let's go see Miss Kate

    -Carol Wayne from Desoto, TX

    My parents started coming to Desoto Animal Hospital in 1983 and when we got our first kitty, Chloe in 1992 we went to see Dr. Adoue first thing. We still have Chloe....and have added Tigger (16 yrs old) and Sophy (13 years old)....

    Everyone who works there is very loving and kind and practical. I trust them to do right thing for all of our furry babies.

    Our border collie Sophy LOVES to go to the Vet! All we have to say is lets go see Miss Kate and she runs to the back door and waits impatiently. If I take her with me on an errand around town, she always barks as we drive by!

    Thank you for all you do to keep our pets healthy!


  • The most compassionate and caring staff

    -Jan Dixon from Midlothian, TX
    Pet Name: Whitey

    Pet Image My husband and I are in the process of losing our beloved Whitey, a white kitty who is 22+ years of age, to chronic renal failure. She originally belonged to my deceased father, but we have been so blessed to have her for 20 of those years. We've all been through this process, but this one is particularly devastating as it's like losing Daddy all over again. This amazing group of people has been so kind, caring and compassionate. Dr. Victoria Martinez is truly a saint on earth. The love she and her staff has shown to Whitey means so much to us! We will forever be grateful for everyone at VCA DeSoto.

  • The Best In Town

    -The Jack Pot Clan from Glenn Heights, TX

    There's so much to say about VCA Desoto, we just don't know where to begin. When we gave up our vet in Amarillo to move back here we had no idea where to go. VCA was close to the house, so off we went. They didn't know what to expect when we walked in the door, nor did we, it was a trial visit of course.
    Little did they know they were about to meet not just one of our animals, but all six, 4 dogs and two cats. We would only take one or two in at a time. Eventually they noticed we were coming in alot. Over the past three years we have come to consider VCA DeSoto part of our family and would also like to consider them as friends.
    We can't say enough about VCA DeSoto. It is a great place to bring your 4 legged family. We haven't met any of the vets we haven't liked. We like them all. Dr. Curry has been the one we have come closet to, but Dr. Martinez and Dr. Bolin has pulled us through on several occasions as well. You would think eventually they would get tired of us coming in so much, not here. They like to see us coming as much as we like to have a visit with them while tending the babies. It's always fun to go in, everyone treats us with such respect. We always get a big kick out of Amy who is always so chipper, and talks to each and everyone of the animals and treats them as her own and tries to comfort them before they go to the rooms. It's her personality that makes it fun to go to the vet....We would like to say something about each and everyone of them because they all deserve recognition, but we just don't know all their names, but Amy, Sara, April, Agnes, Margaret, Tara, April Lynn, Stacy, Cindy thank you for treating all of us with kindness.

    Dr. Curry, thank you for giving us the extra time we had with our babies Sweetness, Mulligan, Taz, and Slick. We had so much more time than we should have because of you.

    We look forward to more great services with Austi, Cricket, Jake, Streak, LT, and Boo Bear.
