What Our Wonderful Clients Have to Say

    This is the best vet clinic I have ever been to. I love the staff. Everyone is so kind and caring. I have nothing but good things to say about them. I have 4 dogs at all different ages. All the Doctors are always patient and understanding with all my questions. I will continue to go here for years to come.

    Premier Vet Care Rowlett has the most compassionate doctors and employees I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. You can tell by everyone's demeanor that they truly care about all the patients they see and they are very professional when dealing with the animals and their owners. The facility is always spotless and smells fresh and clean as well. Its always just a good experience!

    I took in my puppy this week. The staff and Dr. Kirsten were amazing. Dr. Kirsten took the time to make sure she answered all my quearions regarding my dog. An awesome staff member, I want to say her name was Diane, was extremely helpful and not only opened the door when she saw me come up to the door pushinf my son in his wheelchair and carrying the crate but offered to carry the crate after the appointment so it was easier to load up my son. This place went above and beyond and I can't wait for them to take care of my other pets as well.

    We absolutely love Premier! The staff loves the animals that they work with and it shows. The staff is top notch and we’re so happy we’ve found them! We’d recommend them to anyone!

    Dr. Cope is an amazing vet! He took time to go over every detail of my dog's exam and answered every question I had. He actually cares about my pet - not just making money! So refreshing! The staff is friendly and professional and always remember my pet's name! And the cost can't be beat - Premier has to be the most affordable vet around!

    Love Premier Vet Care in Rowlett. Dr. Josh and Dr. Anna are so caring and compassionate. The entire staff are so kind and helpful! Highly recommend them!

    Very caring techs and doctors. The front desk assistants are so kind too. Amazing place!

    Love this place! Had to find a new vet and this place fits the bill. Reasonable pricing and an excellent staff that really seems to care about your fur babies. They take the time to explain everything. A must recommend for sure.

    There just aren't enough wonderful things that I can say about the love and care that my dog receives here, both when receiving vet care and grooming services. No matter where I live, there is no other place that my pets will ever visit than here.

    I am so pleased with Doctor Kirsten Stukey. She was so helpful in assisting me with my baby dog, Tia. I really am glad I came to this veterinarian clinic. I will not anywhere else!

    Everyone was very friendly and took great care of my Dolly. Dr. Jacqueline was very sweet and patient and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    We love Premier Vet. Every employees there is friendly, caring and truly love animals. The doctors are thorough, always explain fully any treatment, give you the cost, and discuss any options. The place is always clean and the environment is welcoming. We will not go anywhere else.

    Every single person that works here is amazing. They are all so nice and genuinely care about my pets. They continuously go the extra mile to provide the best care. The doctors know what they are doing and give you several options for treatment. The staff calls to check up on my dogs after visits and it means so much to me. Going to the vet is not always the most fun experience but everyone at Premier makes it the best it could possibly be because the staff is so kind. I have no doubt that my dogs are getting the best health care possible when we go here and I’m so glad we found them!

    My family and I absolutely LOVE Premier Vet! They take such fabulous care of our fur baby, and he gets excited when he gets to go to the vet. That tells it all right there! They are so kind and helpful no matter if you are there for a grooming, routine check up, or illness. Always the same level of care and kindness! The groomer is FANTASTIC as well. Highly recommend her! Not to mention the incredible philanthropic work they do. I can't imagine taking my baby anywhere else. Keep up the good work Premier Vet!

    I work as a Veterinary Technician at another clinic and when my dog needed an ultra sound I was stuck because my clinic doesn't have an ultra-sound machine. Everyone was very nice and, Dr. Josh took his time explaining everything! He even went through what we where looking at on the ultra-sound while he was performing it. I was also thoroughly impressed that when he suggested that we take laparoscopic samples of the spleen to rule out cancer 100% that he could do so in house that day! I highly recommend Dr. Josh and his team for your pets health care.

    We couldn't be more happier to have a good Vet for my puppy. Dr. Stewart is the best vet, we've came across since having dogs. She is very caring, & even called to follow up on our dog to see how she was doing on our very first visit. We've been here 3 times already & it's been nothing but, pleasant. All the staff is very friendly & always want to keep my bloodhound Coco lol Totally recommended!!

    The staff has been incredible at both of our visits! They are very informative and have been so kind to our fur baby. We cannot recommend this clinic more!

    My furbabes have been established w Premier Vet Care for a couple of years now. We all adore Dr. Anna and all front staff is wonderful. Dr.Anna is always so caring, and gentle with our girls and she is always thorough when going over a treatment plan. We've seen them for routine care, vaccinations and heartworm treatment. Meredith , Diane, Dee and Emily have always been super patient in explaining any billing questions, rescheduling appointment times etc. Tempa and Candy appreciate all of you guys at Premier Vet Care!

    We are so impressed by the entire team at Premier Vet Care Animal Clinic. From the front office staff to the vet techs to the doctors, each one of them goes out of their way to make you feel valued and appreciated. They are are knowledgeable and experienced. Their love for your pets comes through in everything they do too! We wouldn’t trust anyone with our four fur babies!

    Love the doctors and friendly staff. I appreciate how you can tell they really care and are concerned with my furr baby. I never feel rushed like as if there in a hurry to get me out and on to the next. They always take there time to answer any questions I have and are very gentle with my furr baby. I have always taken my pets to Premier Vet Care over the past few yrs when I had other dogs and will always refer and continue to go there. Thanks for always making it a great visit every time we go!

    Premier Vet clinic is truly the PREMIER clinic. Their staff is courteous and professional. The clinic is clean and the vet techs are very caring. Dexter doesn’t even mind going to the vet!

    We've been taking our Australian Cattle Dogs, Samson and Lola, here for a couple of years and we can't say enough good things about Premier! Dr Josh and Dr Anna are both so kind and take the time during your appointments to really go over your pets needs and address any worries or concerns. The pricing can be a bit high if you keep your dogs up to date on everything year round, but I feel all in all our pups are in the best hands here and that's priceless to us! Dr Josh is very reserved on doing tests or treatment and really does want to save you money where he can. One of our dogs is absolutely terrified of being at the vet and not once has a staff member or Dr Josh/Dr Anna complained or treated him any different. They always give him time and lots of TLC despite his crazed demeanor which means a lot to us! We recently found out they are doing house calls as well which is very convenient since our dogs get so anxious at the vet. The staff at the front desk could be the best part of it all, though, considering most front desk staff are hit or miss. They are always peppy, strike up good conversation, and genuinely happy to see you and your pups. This makes a trip to Premier great from start to finish. Thanks for everything yall do! :)

    I absolutely love Premier Vet Care! I've been taking my dog there since he was a puppy and they always have great customer service and are very knowledgeable. Another thing I like is that they don't try to sell you anything unnecessary. As long as I live in the area, I will be taking all future pets here!

    "We absolutely love Premier Vet! Everytime we have gone there is hardly a wait and we are always in and out so quickly. I appreciate the the staff as they treat my dog as if it were their own and gain is trust with treats, needless to say my dog loves going to the vet know because he associates them with treats. Now that we have moved further away we still keep Premier Vet because we haven't found any other vets office like them and one that my dog willingly loves to go to. Thank you Premier Vet for all that you do!"
