Rutherford is by far one of the best vets I have ever been to. They have see 2 out of our 5 animals and every time they have been caring and compassionate. This last time my cat Panther had to be rushed into surgery for a blockage. Rutherford truly went above and beyond for us. We already know we will be clients of Rutherford for life.

I’ve moved here from Maine and wanted personalized care for my dogs like I got there. I tried another vet in the area, and felt like another number. It was such a cold uncaring setting. That vet seemed as if she was trying to up-sell at every moment, and really didn’t have a love for dogs. This week I visited Dr. Rowan with my dog Dodger. He had conjunctivitis. Dr. Rowan was so kind and caring from the get-go. Her compassion for animals was clearly evident which made me & Dodger feel at ease. She explained everything she was doing prior to doing it. To top it off, the bill was very reasonable, and my dog’s eye is clear. I am so grateful I found a new clinic for my dogs!

Dr. Rowan is absolutely incredible. She knows her stuff inside and out and goes well above the call of duty for her patients. Thanks to her I got an extra 8-10 months with my little sweetheart. I can't say enough about how wonderful and caring she is. At the end Dr. Washington had to step in, and despite seeing me at my absolute worst, she was a consummate professional, a dear friend, and a beautiful spirit who helped me make my hardest decision. Anyone who chooses Rutherford is in excellent hands no matter what the situation with their pet.

The same as humans require rounds of vaccinations early in life, so do pets. Today, we've contained many highly contagious and dangerous animal diseasesonly through the responsible use of pet vaccinations. Humans cannot contract most of the illnesses pets are at risk for but some can. By law, all pets are vaccinated against rabies due to its prevalence in wildlife. At Rutherford Veterinary Hospital in Dallas, we administer core vaccines and ones determined according to lifestyle for maximum prevention of disease.


Rutherford Veterinary Hospital understands you love your pets, and you want them to live long, happy and healthy lives. As pet owners ourselves, we know the bonds that form between pets and people. Our doctors and staff are committed to creating a personalized wellness program focused on preventative care in a low-stress environment with compassion and open communication. Designing a preventative wellness program includes many factors: your pet's life stage, environment, nutrition and wellness diagnostic testing.


Did you know poor oral health can have a big impact on your pet's overall health? Like humans, pets require regular teeth cleaning and dental care. If proper care isn't continually administered to your pet's teeth and gums, tartar and plaque can build up, entering the bloodstream and leading to serious health problems. Your pet's health is our number one concern and our veterinarians will do whatever is necessary to ensure your four-legged friend lives a long and health life. Call (214) 826-4166 to schedule a cat or dog teeth cleaning with our veterinarians!
