We know how important a pet can be to your life and will treat your feline or canine with the dignity and care he deserves.

We also maintain a fully stocked pharmacy and offer online pharmacy services to make it easy for you to obtain any medications your pet needs for treatment.

You’ll also appreciate our clean, calm, welcoming clinical environment that will put you and your pet at ease as you wait to see your veterinarian in Tyler TX. In the event of emergencies, a professional veterinarian and staff are available six days a week for urgent and emergency care. When it comes time for your feline or canine to leave this earth behind, you can partake of our hospice and euthanasia services to alleviate his pain and suffering.

  • Kathy Carlson, DVM

    As a kid growing up in rural Kansas, I always had an assortment of livestock and pets, all much to my mother's dismay. I started working in a local veterinary practice when I was 17 and have worked in one ever since. After graduating from Kansas State University in 1984, I followed my husband, Dr. Jon Carlson, to Texas and was very fortunate to be able to come to work in Tyler with Dr. Arnold and Dr. Maris in February of 1986, where I have stayed and been able to develop my special interest in feline medicine.

    They are so nice and provide outstanding care to my pets. They have compassion and have gone above and beyond to help my fur babies.
