Local Medical Issues

There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health, and that require your attention over the entire year. For example, there's heartworm, which can affect both cats and dogs.

Caring and Honest Vet
Dorian and Wayne Foster from San Antonio

I have been taking our animals to Oak Hills hospital for many years and have gotten to know Dr Tschirhart quite well with our 2 big dogs and cats, and strays, etc. One of our dogs, Bear, has been having ongoing problems with her skin and Dr T always has good ideas of things to try (even when our budget goes up and down, he is reasonable). Bear suffered from a stroke after a seizure almost 2 years ago and we thought she would need to be put down, but Dr T examined her after she came out of the emergency hospital and said "give her some time...dogs bounce back better than humans from strokes". He saved her life with those words. We rehabilitated Bear back to normal and she has had many more happy years. The staff there is great and they really work to squeeze you in if you don't have an appointment.
