Pet of the Month for May 2020

Meet Jasper! Jasper was rushed into our New Braunfels location recently because his owners found him non-responsive. Dr. Lauren Casares was there for the emergency and started treatment immediately. It is still undetermined what could have caused his condition but luckily with proper treatment Jasper came back around pretty quickly. He had a few days of strict rest and watch. The owners and Dr. Casares are keeping a close eye on Jasper and so far he is back to his hyper playful self!

Important Message about COVID-19

Dear CanyonVet New Braunfels Clients,

Yesterday, The City of New Braunfels issued a “Stay at Home Order” aka “Shelter in Place Order”.  Because veterinarians are considered an “essential” business, we are allowed to remain open to care for your pets, but in a more limited capacity.

During the Stay at Home Order, only appointments for medical problems will be allowed at the New Braunfels location.  From March 26th to April 8th, we are no longer going to be accepting appointments for Wellness/Annual Exam appointments unless the pet is due for a Rabies vaccine or any portion of their initial puppy/kitten vaccination series.   In order to protect your pet and stay current with state laws, we will allow appointments for due Rabies vaccination, but the pet needs to be due for Rabies before April 8th to qualify.  Puppies and kittens in need of their initial vaccination series will also be allowed.  Other appointments for routine vaccinations, toe nail trims, heartworm tests, new patient exams for healthy pets, etc., will be scheduled no earlier than April 8th.  Any currently scheduled wellness exams of pets prior to April 8th that do not have a current medical condition, are not due for Rabies vaccination by April 8th, and are not receiving their puppy/kitten vaccination series will be called and rescheduled by our staff.

We are also rescheduling any routine surgeries that do not address a critical medical condition.  Routine surgeries are primarily limited to Spays, Neuters, Routine Dental cleanings, and Feline Declaw surgeries.  Dental cleanings for severe dental disease where extractions are indicated to relieve pain and infection will be allowed on a case by case basis as determined by your veterinarian.

We will be rescheduling appointments for Proheart 6/12 injections to no earlier than April 8th.  We recommend purchase of at least a single dose (1 month protection) of Heartgard or Trifexis to provide your pet with heartworm protection during the stay at home order.

The above changes currently only apply to our New Braunfels location.  We are still accepting Wellness Exam appointments and all surgeries at our Canyon Lake and Spring Branch locations where there is currently no “Stay at Home Order” in place.


To promote social distancing, all appointments are currently required to be Curbside Check in.

We are offering a Telemedicine option (email, telephone) for pets with minor medical problems that have been examined by one of our veterinarians within the past 12 months. Normal exam charges apply.

Food and medications can be picked up Curbside.

We have an online pharmacy on our website.

Once again, thanks for all of your patience and understanding as we do our best to provide safety to our clients and staff as well as exceptional care to our patients.  We apologize for any inconvenience these protective measures may cause, but hopefully they will result in everyone getting back to a more normal life as soon as possible.

Meet sweet Charlotte! She and her K9 siblings recently boarded with us and she got to stay in the Feline Condo! She loved the new cat tree we got and spent most of her day lazing on it and chirping at clients through the windows.  She is a great example of how we try to promote a low stress environment for our feline patients while they are away from home!

Pets of the Month for January 2020

Meet Lily and Finn! These two are ready to take on the new year after having to be hospitalized for eating several boxes of raisins over the holidays! Raisins are very toxic to pets as they can cause severe kidney failure! If they could make a New Years resolution, it would be to not give in to the temptations of toxic food!. Let’s hope that they can keep it!

Pet of the Month for December 2019

Dexter came to see us after having several days of not feeling well from a stomach ache. After a few diagnostics were performed, it was determined that he had eaten something causing an obstruction in his intestines. He was rushed into surgery to remove the foreign object. The object turned out to be a corncob that he had found in the yard! Today, Dexter is doing very well and has had no complications after his surgery! No corn for him, though!

Pet of the Month for November 2019

Gunnar is a young handsome Australian Shepherd that came to see us because he was hit by a car. He is loved and adored by all. So much even that we have never had so many visitors for one patient! We can understand because he is so sweet! He had some trouble breathing and we discovered he had Pneumothorax (air that leaks into the space between the lungs and the chest wall secondary to trauma).  We sent him to the Specialist to release the air pressure. Since then he is back to his normal self feeling great!  He now gets around on a splint but there is no stopping him! We are so grateful he is feeling better!

Pet of the Month for October 2019

Dixie is aMAZEing! Dixie Maze is a 9 year old Poodle Mix. At the time of her recent exam, Dr. Casares emphasized that Dixie needed a Dental Cleaning. Well, lucky for her we were having Dental Month in September! So, Dixie’s owners capitalized on that and had her scheduled. On the day of Dental we took out 17 bad teeth that could have caused her major health issues if not addressed! Now, she has a healthy mouth! She was our Dental Rock Star of the month!

Pet of the Month for September 2019

Zippity – Do – Dah! Aka Zipper 🙂 Zipper is a 5 year old adorable Brown & White Spotted Dachshund.  In our opinion, the best little small breed there is 😉  Zipper came to us for having vomiting and diarrhea for a month (Insert poor baby).  We did multiple medications and diagnostics.  He even had to be Hospitalized for a couple days.  He was not wanting to eat any food, NOT EVEN CHICKEN!  I know, shocker!  We had to do a special test called a Barium Test, which meant getting him to take a chalky substance orally  and doing multiple Radiographs.  Just right before he was going to be sent to the Specialist for further testing…he got better…yeah!!! Throughout the entire treatment he had the best attitude.  He would always love attention and belly rubs.  As soon as you would open the cage door he immediately rolls on his back for a nice tummy rub.  We are so glad he is back to his old self!
