I've used the Zoo for 15 years for my dogs. I have been extremely happy with the level of care and the attentiveness of the staff - both medical and service personnel. I've routinely boarded my dog and she always is happy to see the staff who know her by name- a sure indication that my dog is cared for and that she is attached to those who attend to her needs during boarding. My dog's medical needs are immediately taken care of in terms of routine and immediate need care. As far as prices go, I've searched the area for a variety of services and found that the Zoo offers dental cleaning that undercut others by over $150. Surgery and immediate need care costs are competitive. You can't beat the care level and the wonderful convienience of having available help on weekends and evenings.

Pros: attentive, compassionate, fair prices

Cons: none

Have been a client for the last 18-20 years. As a registered nurse, I am not only knowledgeable but understanding of all things medical and the issues. I have been in that waiting room listening and watching to all of the very rude, impatient clients. I have seen this in hospitals which means, you cannot please all the people, all the time. My husband and I are very much caring and emotionaly attached to our animals. Dr. Kiker and her associates and staff have always been great. Calls to the home to check on the animal's condition after treatment is hard to come by & I always get that from Atascazoo. I am so sorry for those individuals who always see the glass as "half full." You want quality care, you have to pay for it. Been to the Houston med center lately?

Pros: Compassionate, caring, patience and great communication

Cons: None that I have figured out in the last 18-20 years.

Every time we've been in they've been relatively rude and seem only interested in performing tests and procedures to bring in money... and WAY too much money at that. There are plenty of other choices in the area where the people are friendly and actually seem concerned about the animal and you.

My first visit was with the reptile Vet. She was very sweet, caring and reassuring.
Second visit I got the third degree about wanting to breed my little dog.
Third visit i got the third degree over my cat having flees, flee dander, not having shots current and they acted like because I could not afford $105 for x-rays, $110 for blood and $1000 for surgery that I was just going to go home and let my cat die in pain. The tech seemed like she was trying real hard not to get an attitude with me and didn't seem to care that my cat was throwing up blood and feeling really bad, she was more concerned with what i was going to pay for and what tests she could have me do. I told the Vet i would see if i could find someplace cheaper and she said i can send some meds with you to make her more comfortable until you come back. I didn't like the overall feel of the conversation though the vet was nice, when her and the tech went to the back I just felt like these people just don't care. She didn't even offer to give me info on a cheaper vet, or offer any reduced priced services or anything like that. Although i have been going here since I moved to crosby, I won't go back now. Even if i have to go to the Low Cost Animal Clinic off 610 loop.

What i can say is really good about this place is that it is especially clean but every time i have been there, i was the only customer but could hear some animals in the back.

Pros: clean

I had to search hard to find a vet like Dr Wysocki that will see pet ratz, and has very reasonable prices in treating them. She has always provided excellent care for our pets (we switched our dogs to her also) BUT NOW THEY "FIRED" HER! WHAT A SHAME....now we will find where she goes, and take our 10 pets, (and our referrals) there.

I take my cat to Atascazoo but am going to change vets. Originally, my cat saw the vets there for routine procedures and check-ups. This year, my cat was struggling with daily sickness (apparently Citysearch won't let me say it), despite no changes in diet or other symptoms. The vets were confounded and told me to order a bunch of expensive tests--which I did. The tests showed nothing. However, I realized that I had recently installed Glade oil scents into my electric sockets, which coincided with the cat being sick. I removed the oil scenters and my cat did not sick anymore. I called the vet back to discuss this with her; she said she doubted that was the reason and was quite condescending and rude. Well, guess what, vet? My cat hasn't thrown up since I took those things out. I'm going to take her to a more compassionate and friendly vet next time--one who won't be afraid to listen to something with an open mind!

Pros: Convenience of hours

Cons: Everything else

This vet clinic proves time and time again they are more concerened about making big money then they are actually caring about the animals that they see. A while back I brought my cat to see one of the vets there and turned out my cat had to stay for about 3 days in the hospital. When they called me to pick up my cat, I was told to pay an ex amount of money to pick up my cat. I never thought anything about it. Paid my bill and grabbed my cat and we went home. Well, 30 days letter I get a bill in the mail from Atascazoo animal hospital stating I owe them another 350.00!!! Well, to be quite I honest I was very upset natually so I called down there to see what the deal was and I was told their employee " made a mistake" when checking me out and didn't charge me the right amount. I refused to pay any more money and after a short time later, they actually had the nerve to serve me a law suit!! These people are crooks people be very aware of this outfit!! STAY AWAY!!

Pros: None

Cons: All about the money..No care whatsoever..

I used to take my dogs to Atascazoo but after three or so visits of waiting over an hour to 1 1/2 hours to see a vet (with a confirmed appointment) and then another 30 minutes to an hour once the Vet came in to see my dogs... I decided to find a new vet.... not to mention THE EXTREMELY high prices!!!! I am glad to see others mentioning the same thing. BUT AFTER MY EXPERIENCE WITH THEM LESS THAN TWO HOURS AGO, I WILL NEVER, EVER TAKE A PET OR RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!!! My sister lives in Crosby and had run over her daughters' dog by accident and was looking for a place to take him (around 8:40pm in the evening). I called my vet first, which had an answering machine and then called Atascazoo... the first time they picked up the phone and hung up, I then called right back and they answered only to tell me after explaining my situation to them that they were closing in 10 minutes. I asked if they could possibly wait for my sister to get there, since she was coming from Crosby, but had already headed our way, they put me on hold and another woman answered the phone and told me we would have to go further into Humble (with a Hurricane that just came through and all the power outages, this could be up to an additional 20 minutes or so) to an Emergency Clinic that was open all night. If you are an animal lover like me, this is like a Doctor's office telling me to take my child further up the road because they were closing and had to get home!!!!! Atascazoo is a disgrace to the Animal Care business!

Pros: HMMMMM

Cons: Not very caring!

I've been taking my pets there for the past 6 months. And their GREAT. Meds may be a little expensive, but heck their expensive everywhere.The staff is friendly even when the place is super packed and the pressure is on to make sure the clients are seen. The Doctors are great...theres even a few new Doctors who are great as well. I recommend it to anyone -As far as Mrs.Campbell's experience...I would bet anything it was due to previous staff members...I didn't start taking mine until they had already hired on new staff. I not only have a friend who works there...but I've heard the horror stories about the previous staff. The new staff are great though...

Pros: Friendly Staff - Great Doctors - All Seem To Really Care For Your Pets

Cons: Expensive Meds.

I feel that Atascazoo provides excellent care to their patients. They seem like they have very caring and compassionate staff, they understood that my pets are my babies, so when I scheduled a dental for one of my dogs I was allowed to stay at the clinic and wait for my pet to be done. They let me know step by step what they were doing and offered me drinks and snacks while I waited. The staff was very friendly and the services provided would be considered top quality. I can't imagine going to another vet clinic. They know who I am and my pets by name, you can't beat that!! A loyal Atascazoo customer.

Atazcazoo is where my mom takes her cat Paris who is a maine-coon with a hilton type personality. My
grandmother takes her Jack Russell terrier "Sassy" also. Our family has used Atazcazoo since we
moved to Humble and we have'nt had any problems with this clinic. If the clinic works on hamsters
I will be taking my female hamster Houdini there also.

Cons: Can be a bit expensive on flea meds

My dog stayed for a bit more than a week (~10days) this summer and had a nasty ear infection when I picked him up. The vet confirmed that she noticed the ear infection, but chose not to treat it. My dogs ear was extremely inflamed, had a foul odor, and gray pus oozing out in addition to other symptoms such as scratching, and shaking his head yet the vet still neglected the infection. I thought it was extremely cruel to allow an animal to endure such discomfort for that duration of time. I reluctantly returned to this establishment over the holiday because my arranged 'doggy sitter' plans fell through. This time I left specific written instructions to check his ears from time to time for signs of infection. The staff ignored my request and again, upon picking up my beloved friend, he again had obvious signs of a nasty ear infection. I called and asked why had my request not been fulfilled even though I am a paying customer, and the staff member simply told me that "we didn't write the request on the board...we apologize". In addition to the neglect that my dog received at this establishment, there are obvious signs of inexperienced staff members as they requested me to fill out the exact same paperwork several times. They apparently kept losing the original copy. The communication between staff members and patrons is deficient, my dog has not received proper care the 2 out of 3 times that he has stayed. Needless to say I will not make this mistake again and I advise you to do the same.

Pros: price for boarding is reasonable- $14 per day

Cons: They will neglect the health needs of your pet, even with instructions and vet examinations.
