Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital

Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital


We've been taking our furbabies to the Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital for over 20 years. Dr B & team are pawsdown the best caring and medically astute team in town, in Texas in the USA! The new Cat Hospital, totally separate building from the barking dogs next door is genius. Sofie our kitty was actually purring during her last visit. So if you're new to Austin & seeking a vet this team will not disappoint!

Meet Stella and Gigi!

They were referred by Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital and recently visited us for a recheck with Katie Meier, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology).

Not only do they have the same household in common, but the same heart disease.
Degenerative valve disease most often affects older small breed dogs of all varieties.
But it can also affect large breed dogs and even cats. Although they develop this condition less often, it can sometimes be better tolerated in large breed dogs.

Dr. Meier has been seeing Gigi since 2018 and Stella since 2020. We will continue to closely monitor Stella and Gigi's heart disease and begin therapy if significant progression is noted.

CVCA Austin Shoal Creek is located inside VCA Capital Area Veterinary Specialists.
Found wandering hwy 71. Female bull mastiff. Please message if owners known or found.
Someone needs to call me when the office opens, 512-888-6961. Boarded my animals with you guys and now my cats have RINGWORM.
Lenny and Rocky stayed warm this morning with their SSAH shirts! ❤️🖤
This happy boy was so excited for his first visit at Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital.... and he strolled out with an extra pep in his step. Sending lots of love and appreciation to the team and everyone there for the attention and care... thank you for making this such a special visit. (Rocky loves his new red tank top)
Thank you to the whole vet care team today. Highly impressed with entire process.
Wasn’t able to get names of the wonderful techs and it’s hard to tell who is who with masks on. But they were very friendly and made my pets and myself feel relaxed (our male tech had magnificent hair! And Dasy dog loved him). Dr. Crawford was very professional and friendly. Not always an easy combination to achieve. Front desk staff was efficient and also friendly. Thank you to the entire team. We highly recommend this clinic.
(Ma**er and Dasy a little bit safer on their hikes now that they have their rattlesnake vaccine).
Update on Archie:
Archie got his neuter and cyst removal done today at Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital, and he will need to go back in 2 weeks to get his dental (with planned extractions). We intended to do all medical work today but his body temperature dropped at the one hour mark and we needed to get him woken up to recover safely. He’s doing well so far! Thank you to his caring foster home Marina Zee. 😍
Thank you, everyone at SSAH. Ya’ll are the very best.
Sonny Boy and Shug send love and gratitude to all the great staff of Spicewood Animal Hospital that keep us healthy all year long!

Today is National Check the Chip Day!
5 reasons we recommend microchipping your pet
1. Microchips are permanent
2. Microchip registries prove you're the pet parent
3. Microchips increase the odds of a pet's homecoming
4. Many microchip manufacturers offer lost pet alerts
5. A microchip is forever
Is your pet microchipped? If you're not sure, your veterinarian will be able to check for you. If your pet is microchipped, is your pet's microchip registered? Contact the microchip company to register and/or update any new contact information.


Zoey is here to brighten up our Monday 💖✨ Have a great week!!


Kelsea, the miniature but mighty Dachshund. 😍
Did you know that "Dachshund" is German for "badger dog"? Dachshunds' short legs keep them low to the ground to track scents, and their narrow bodies allow them to crawl into burrows, looking for badgers. Despite their small size, Dachshunds are known for their bravery and fierceness. While Kelsea may not be hunting badgers, she sure did find her way into our hearts. 💞

***In observance of the 4th of July, we will be closing early today, Monday, July 3rd, at 6 pm, and we will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th***
Be safe this 4th of July, and keep your pets safe too!
- Keep pets indoors, with exits secure, including windows
- Walk and exercise your pets earlier in the day to avoid excessive heat and fireworks scares
- Give your pets somewhere safe to hideout, such as their crate or a closed room with blinds shut and comfortable bedding
- Provide distractions, such as favorite treats or toys, and turn up some calming music or television to drown out the noise
- Check that your pets' collars are secure and ID tags and microchips and up-to-date
- Administer anxiety medications and/or calming aids within the recommended time frame before fireworks displays have begun


Adi is absolutely adorable 💞 Now, say that three times fast! 😉

We absolutely adore Buster! Looking for a small friend? Look no further - Small Chance Rescue has got you covered. Buster wants to be your best friend forever!!

Sweet little Buster is ready for a family to call his very own forever. His bio is long but accurate 😃.

Do you need a self esteem boost or someone to love you 100% of the time with his entire heart? If so, Buster may be the guy for you.

Buster came into the group from the shelter where he and 9 others were surrendered from the same home. He was filthy, had a little hair loss due to fleas, and was a little underweight. Despite maybe not having been in the best of circumstances previously, this guy is only on this earth to love his humans.

If you’re not looking for devotion, then keep on scrolling. Buster wants to be where his people are, sitting on the couch with you, sleeping on you, or tossing a toy in your vicinity. He’s playful and affectionate. He likes all people and is fostered in a home with mom, dad, 3 kids and other dogs. He is happy as can be with all the commotion of a busy household, but he’s also content just relaxing when the kids are at school and mom’s working from home. He also enjoys ALL the doggie toys, and he’ll bring them up in the couch and hang out in the pile of toys.

He is crate-trained at night time and when the family leaves the house. He wasn’t a fan at first, but he’s quiet now. When he’s kept on schedule, his housetraining is perfect. He doesn’t quite know cues of going to the door or signaling just yet, so you just have to let him in the backyard periodically and tell him to go potty. The other dogs don’t play with him too often, but one of the resident pups recently started to engage, and they’ll run circles around the backyard together. While he’d probably love another playful pup, he also seems like he’d be happy as can be with people who love him as much as he loves them. Did I mention this guy likes to snuggle, cuddle, spoon or be a dog scarf around your shoulders?


Carmel is here to remind us that nothing compares to the unconditional love and loyalty of our furry friends. 💚🐾 As if we needed reminding 😉
