Chisholm Trail was very accommodating to our needs. Our dog had an accident with another dog and need stitches. They were able to get us an appointment the same day and perform minor surgery the same afternoon. They gave us a cost estimate with a low and high end. The end cost was the in the middle of the two. Our dog came home in good spirits and seemed well taken care of. What more can you ask for?

I’m so thankful that I found Chisholm through yelp. They greeted us as soon as we walked in and we went straight into a room. The tech loved on my kitty. I was really impressed with the services our kitty received today. The tech and Dr. Dawson were awesome. I feel confident in my decision to take our kitty there. I highly recommend Chisholm to anyone looking for a vet.

We had our little Aine spayed here and they gave her the BEST care!! We have visited several vets in the area recently with our animals and feel that this one highly surpasses the others in the professionalism, the knowledge, the care, the follow-up, and just the overall experience! This place comes vet-recommended by another vet in the area (that doesn’t do surgery) and we are forever thankful that this is where we went!! Thank you Chisholm Trail for taking such amazing care of our little fur baby!!

ITCHING IN PETS
The medical term or itchy skin is pruritus. While it can be overwhelming to see your pet uncomfortably scratching, rest assured that pruritus is quite common in companion animals. While allergies aren’t the only cause, they’re often the most common culprit of pruritus.
Itching in your pet can also be caused by::
- Contact dermatitis (direct contact with soaps, perfumes, and cleaning solutions)
- Flea allergy dermatitis
- Seasonal allergies
- Food allergies
- Sarcoptic mange (mites)
- Atopy (heightened immune response to allergens)
Schedule an allergy test for your itchy pet today by calling (830) 620-1100 today!
