We are humbled that you choose us to help you with your pets preventative care and flattered that you want us to be there for you during your emergency. We chose to live and practice in Paris, Texas because it allows us to raise our families without the pressures and disappointments that go along with the big city lifestyle. Most folks that live in Paris and in Lamar county do so for similar reasons. You may be one of those folks. Both rural and city life have their advantages and disadvantages, and if your expectations are to have a veterinarian available all day, then all night, then it is time to move to the big city where they have multiple doctor practices to meet your expectations. Sometimes you've got to take the good with the bad.
I'm a one man operation with a family that I love dearly. My staff and I do our best work from 8am-5pm (and any other small business owner or business manager knows the store hours ain't even 1/2 the story.) Our main goal is to examine, diagnose and treat preventable diseases and identify areas of concern that may lead to an emergency. If your pet does not receive annual preventative care, or receive this type of preventative care then you very well may end up in an emergency. We encourage you to establish this type of relationship with a veterinarian and play a proactive role in your pets healthcare. Be proactive, not reactive.
For after hours emergency please contact one of the specialized hospitals equipped to handle the level of care your pet needs.
