When I moved from Katy to the country several years ago, I was unable to take my 10-year-old toy poodle, Pepe, with me. I had no place to keep him at the new place because of a conflict with another dog and I was really afraid he would get hurt. Dr. Hicks had been Pepe's veterinarian for many years. He saw me agonizing over what to do with Pepe. Dr. Hicks and his wife graciously took in my dog as one of their own. They kept him at the clinic during the day and took him home with them at night and on weekends. Pepe became the clinic mascot. I could tell that the staff at Old Town Animal Hospital really loved him by the way they played with him. He got lots of love and attention from the staff and customers. Staff members even took turns on weekends taking him home with them. I couldn't have asked for better treatment of my dog.
About two years later, Dr. Hicks called and told me that Pepe had developed a cancerous rectal tumor. Dr. Hicks said that he did not know how long Pepe had to live. I went to Katy as often as I could to see Pepe. I was heartbroken that he was so sick.
A few months later, Dr. Hicks called to say that Pepe was in a lot of pain and needed to be put to sleep. But he said he wanted me to come see him one last time. I went. I will always treasure the time I spent with Pepe that day. I will remember the way he smiled at me that day forever. That is definitely the way I want to remember him. He had been my dog ever since I was a little boy.
It is terrible to lose a beloved pet, but Dr. Hicks and his staff are the most compassionate people I have ever met. God bless you Dr. Hicks, Mrs. Hicks, and the entire staff at Old Town Animal Hospital for what you did for Pepe and for me. I really mean this from the bottom of my heart.
I will always take my animals to Dr. Hicks and the people at Old Town Animal Hospital. This is true even though I have to drive over 50 miles one way just to get there. There is no doubt in my mind that they really care about both the pets and the pet owners. I highly recommend them to everyone I know.
Staff makes me feel like extended family – I have two labs that I take to Dr. Hicks. The staff at O.T.A.H. is very professional and the pricing is very reasonable. Dr. Hicks and his staff provided excellent care to diagnose a bacteria my dog received while recovering from a snake bite. It took a couple of tests but I felt they were very concerned with my dog's health and worked as quickly as they could to get him the correct treatment. In fact, they were able to find a very inexpensive treatment for the bacteria rather than using a very common expensive medicine they had on hand. As a 'true client' I highly recommend O.T.A.H. And although I am not family, Dr. Hicks and his staff always make me feel like extended family when I have to bring my dogs in.
All are truly miracle workers – Wods can't express how thankful I am for your uncompromising efforts to save my "Baby." Without your hard work and dedication I would have lost not just my pet, but a member of my family! You are all truly miracle workers and I can't thank you enough! "Baby" is doing wonderful at home, and he has an obvious new lease on life! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!!
Your pet will receive world class service – This place is really great. I took my dog there, and she received world class service, I would never trust anyone else with my animals ever again. I'm stuck at old town animal hospital for life. They're the best!
My family has taken our pets to Dr. Hicks the entire time Old Town Animal Hospital has been in Katy. We have had medical emergencies in the middle of the night and he has always met us at the clinic - even if it was 3 a.m. We believe our pets have received the best possible veterinary care and think the world of Dr.Hicks. He really cares about the animals. His staff is also top-notch too! We have had plenty of opportunities to watch them care for the animals when they did not know we were looking. They care just as much as Dr. Hicks. Our pets love to go to the vet - if they have to stay overnight, they're not really eager to leave. We rank Dr. Hicks and Old Town Animal Hospital an A+ and highly recommend them.
Always taking care of us – We want to thank everyone at Old Town Animal Clinic for always being there for us and always taking care of us! Just want to let everyone know that Lilly's fish hook incident turned out just fine :) She is back to eating everything she finds!
We took a very sick stray cat we had been caring for after-hours for emergency treatment recently. Unfortunately, the cat was close to dying with multiple untreatable diseases and had to be euthanized. Dr. Hicks was compassionate, caring, warm, and professional. He performed some basic tests, but didn't try to sell us unnecessary and exhorbitantly priced tests and treatment. When the time came to explain his diagnosis and our options, he was honest and down to earth. We suspect that he may have undercharged us for the hours of treatment he provided - and with it being in the evening, but we can't say for sure. The man has a HUGE heart. Last week we received a card from his office expressing their sadness for our loss. We highly recommend Old Towne and Dr. Hicks. Katy, TX is lucky to have him! Update: Dr. Hicks is now our regular vet and treated our cat's dental problems with expert care. I love his office - free coffee, ice cream, video games for the kids---great kid-friendly, family-friendly clinic!
I tell everyone I can to take their pets here – Dr Hicks and all his staff are the best vet clinic in town. I love them! they are so caring and most of all are not out to get you for all your money. they genuinely want to help your pet and only do what they know will help. I adopted a stray who after having it for 2wks began to have seizures. Dr Hick saw him several times and was very honest about what could be done but at the same time practical he advised that I could run all these costly test to find out what was causing the seizures but then all I have is a costly diagnosis, so he suggested that we just treated him for the seizures first. He could have said I had to do all those test like Banfield hospital told me do, but he did not want to take my money. He was very patient explaining about seizures in dogs and told me he had a dog that at 2yrs old started having them and he put him on meds and the dog is 12 years old and has had a good life. I took my dog in to him several times and he did not charge me on a couple of occasions for the visits. When I call the staff is so nice and are quick to get back to me. I can't recommend Dr. Hicks and his clinic enough. I tell everyone I can to take their pets there.
Thank you for the generous care – Thank you all for your generous care of my baby girl, Bo Peep.
Thank you so much for being so good to Izzy and Rigatoni!! We appreciate all that you do for us! Keep up the great work!!
