Which are the best Veterinarians for Pets in Dallas, Plano, Frisco and nearby?

Whether it be Dogs, Cats, Hamsters, Guinea Pigs, or exotic pets,  all pets at some point need to be seen by a Veterinarian. 

These pets are truly a part of our family, and like healthcare for humans, there are many doctors, questions, treatments, etc., and making the right decision can be confusing and cumbersome.  This can require hours of research and a lot of money.  

Favorite Veterinarians in Plano

We have pulled together some of the most recommended Vets in the area and done much of the research about what questions you should ask during your visit. 

For each listing, you’ll see a number of features to help you see quickly what each Veterinarian offers in their practice.

For first-time pet owners, visiting a vet can be a bit overwhelming, most especially when you don’t know what to expect.


Here are a few questions that you may want to ask your Veterinarian on your first visit:

  • What are the services you offered? What is the office capabilities?
  • How to contact the staff if there is an emergency? Is emergency care available after hours, on weekends or during holidays?
  • What type of parasites and pests are common in the area? And how can I prevent them?
  • Should I get pet insurance, and what should I look for when choosing an insurance plan?
  • Do I need to give my pet vaccinations? What is best?
  • What type of food do I offer to my pet?
  • What kind of grooming do you recommend for my pet?
  • Is Pre-Anesthetic blood work included in the price of a spay/neuter and other surgeries?

Cats and Dogs Pets Plano TX

As a pet owner, you should become familiar with the type of practice the doctor runs.  You can find a lot of this information on their websites.  But some of the things you can look for:

  • Is this animal veterinarian AAHA Accredited?  This is the only accreditation that can be held by a practicing Vet office.  It holds a Vet office to be evaluated on a stringent quality of standards in all aspects of Veterinary Medicine. Only about 12-15% of all Vet practices are accredited.  
  • Exactly what type of services are offered at the Vet office?  Do they offer full comprehensive care which includes x-rays, surgery, dental as well as all of the standard Wellness services?
  • Do they only offer services to Dogs and Cats or will they take Small Animals or Exotic Animals?  Many offices only offer services to  Dogs and Cats, so be sure to look this up before bringing your parakeet for their annual check up.  
  • Will the local veterinarian practice offer “Get to know you” visits?  This is where the owner can take their dog to the vet for a fun, welcoming visit. The dog is offered treats and lots of love.  This will allow the dog to start out thinking the Vet is a “fun place” not just “a place for shots.’
  • Does the office offer Care Plans, Financing or any other type of financial support?  Will they offer any sort of payment plan or line of credit?  This can be very important as medical care of your pet can add up quickly.  Many do not carry Pet insurance, but if you do, make sure the office accepts it as well.
  • Does your Vet offer Grooming and Boarding?  Some Vets offer these types of services and are even included in the price of some of their packages offered. 
  • What are the Vet office’s hours?  Do they offer Urgent Care/After hours?  Do they have any weekend hours?

Below is a list of some of the most recommended Vet offices from the Facebook page – Plano Moms Talk.  These are taken directly from local moms in and around the Plano Area.
