Kevin and Elizabeth Templeman built the Garden Ridge Animal Hospital on the edge of the Texas Hill Country in 2010. The facility was designed with a pet-first approach. There are designated cat and dog rooms, separate dental and surgical areas, state of the art radiology and lab room, and a large central treatment area with pharmacy. We provide veterinary care, surgery, dental services, and wellness programs for dogs, cats, and small exotic pets.
Our goal at the Garden Ridge Animal Hospital is to provide high quality pet care
with focus on client education and pet wellness.
Early disease detection and prevention are key to a longer and healthier life, so, we recommend wellness testing at an early age and also tailor your pet’s immunizations based on specific lifestyle and risk assessments.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite accommodates a wide range of surgeries, and we provide the world’s safest anesthetics (especially for older or high risk patients) and vital sign monitoring during all anesthetic procedures.
Our onsite X-ray equipment (including digital dental radiology) provides high quality radiographs for the diagnosis of multiple disorders, and we consult with and refer to a board-certified local radiologist as needed.
We contract with a veterinary ultrasonographer who performs these procedures in our facility- -including advanced cardiac imaging, biopsies, and aspirates.
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, cytology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Our dental services include ultrasonic scaling and planing, thorough dental evaluations, periodontal mapping and treatment, dental radiography, bonded sealants, and surgical extractions.
Like humans, veterinary patients experience pain and discomfort, so recognizing and alleviating their pain is essential to our patient care.
A senior pet’s disease risk requires special consideration, so examinations, blood work, electrocardiography, and blood pressure measurements allow us to recommend diet & lifestyle changes and/or medications for good health.
