Why I love Oliver Animal Hospital:
My dog Dutch and I have been clients/patients of Dr. Oliver's for 10 years. I cannot say enough positive things about OAH and the staff. They always go above and beyond to make sure you feel comfortable and understand your pet and their needs. Dutch is fairly famous in Austin as he spends a lot of time at Dr. Oliver's office (and other speciality vets offices as well)…not always because something is wrong but also just because he has endeared himself to them and they to him. There is no question everybody at OAH is willing to go the extra mile when and if necessary. The thing that I believe separates Dr. Oliver and her staff and OAH is the care and attention they give their clients. Recently Dutch had to undergo MAJOR surgery and even though Dr. Oliver was on maternity leave she still went out of her way to check on Dutch and to help in his recovery and before that in the decision making process about having the surgery to begin with.
I love my dog…he is like my child and of course I treat him as such. He was a surprise gift and has been a great companion! He traveled with me almost everywhere I went until recently.
I trust OAH's staff implicitly and would recommend them to anybody who cares about getting optimal care in an incredible environment.
My Name is Buddy. I am a sweet and healthy 10 year old tabby. I now live a healthy and happy life thanks to Oliver Animal Hospital. I had been sick all of my life.
So sick, in fact, I could never survive neutering so every vet I went to declined me for surgery. I suffered 7 years with severe sneezing, nasal discharge, and I was so congested I had to breath through my mouth. Eventually I could not eat or swallow well. I got down to 4 lbs.
I was referred to Oliver Animal Hospital and they started immediate nursing care with me. I was so fragile and frail that I could not eat but I had a will to live like no other cat around!
Dr. Oliver had a hunch there was something in the back of my nose and sinus cavity and suspected it had been growing for years. She and her team worked diligently to get me as healthy as possible with supportive syringe feedings, antibiotics, and intravenous fluids. Once I was stable she referred me to Dr. Locke, an internal medicine specialist to have my nose scoped. Voila' ! A large non cancerous polyp the size of a half dollar (OAH joking calls it my jumbo shrimp polyp) was removed!
I could breathe again for the first time in 7 years. I went on to gain over 10 lbs, had my neuter, and now live happily at home with my many other siblings. Thank goodness my owner believed in my will to live and did not give up on me. He is a hero for that!
Thank you Oliver Animal Hospital for taking the time to diagnose me correctly and allowing me to live a happy and healthy life!
"I WISH I COULD GIVE THEM MORE STARS!
We just moved to South Austin and before today we have not yet set up a vet in the area. Our dog, Winnie, was having a longer-than-usual seizure this morning and naturally, being the worried frantic dog moms, I called around trying to see who would be able to accommodate our dog as a walk-in/new patient during our emergency. Oliver Animal Hospital was comforting on the phone, their staff welcomed us with open arms and assessed the situation immediately.
Oliver Animal Hospital's AMAZING staff was very comforting, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and updated us through each step of the way (updates of her status, recommended procedures, information & how-to's for her situation, options/alternatives, permissions...the list goes on). I have to say, this is hands down the best pet care. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for pet care if you want your pet treated like family."Aubrey Lenz
"Dr Oliver and her staff are simply the best! This fantastic practice is so concerned about the well being of our pet. Dr Oliver is friendly, and takes the time to explain what she is doing at every step when examining and treating our dog. She is very very observant and thorough in her examinations. She provides options for treatment, if that is needed.
Not only great at examination, but the office is VERY flexible in scheduling appointments and going above and beyond in caring for my pet. Once after a surgery, my pet was supposed to go home at 5:00, my dog, Aspen was still sleepy and Dr Oliver and her staff stayed until 9:00pm caring and observing Aspen to make sure she was okay to go home! Just another example of Oliver Animal Hospital's excellence! ****I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Oliver Animal Hospital for all your Vet needs***"Diane McDiarmid
