Customer Testimonials

I had to have my little dog Chloe put to sleep today and they were so understanding and caring. They helped make her feel comfortable and she was very peaceful. They were a great comfort to me in this difficult time as well.

These guys are exceptional at what they do. Very knowledgeable and passionate. Best Vet Clinic around for service and bang for your buck!

We take both of our dogs to the Lindale Veterinary Clinic and we love the care they receive. They are an awesome group. Everyone really takes the time with you and your pet to make sure they are okay. We recommended them highly.

Out dog had a stick caught on the roof of his mouth and they were able to get us in right before closing. They removed it at no charge and took great care of him and us while we were there. The staff is always friendly, kind and helpful. They made us aware of things we should watch for.

Love this place! I have lived here for 3 yrs and I always get the best care for my fur babies!! Dr. Burns is awesome with my American Bulldog. Most people stereo type him by his looks. But he really is a very sweet little boy. She gave him the love and care he needed, and he took to her immediately!!! I always refer people to this place when they are trying to find a good vet. Its important!

From Our Website

At Lindale Veterinary Clinic we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy. Lindale Veterinary Clinic is a well-established, full-service, small and large animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care. We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories.

To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time. For your convenience, 'drop-off' appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to 'drop off' sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients.
