New Client Information

puppy1.png When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.  We at Tickle Blagg Animal Hospital in San Marcos TX have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet.  We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.  Call (512) 353-1871 or use our Schedule an Appointment tool to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up.  This will include a full physical exam tailored to your pet's life stage, diagnostic testing, vaccinations, and may include teeth and gum cleaning if needed.  Dr. Robert Blagg or Dr. Angela Jordan will check the health of your pet from head to tail, a personalized health plan will be created with each visit, and a physical exam report card will be sent home with you to review and keep for your records.  Many times, an annual checkup can help avoid costly and painful health problems before your pet even has symptoms.

Before your visit, you can have your previous vet fax or email us a copy of your pet's record, which can save you a lot of time.  It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts.  If you have something like this, share it with our team.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.  Our doctors can still work with whatever information you have.  Click below to fill out our New Client Form for a faster check-in process.

In some circumstances, the doctors will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery. 

 As with most things, everyone's case will be different, so don't hesitate to ask questions before, during, or after your appointment.  

We confirm appointments 1-2 days in advance. If a new client schedules an appointment, he/she must confirm the appointment with us by phonecall, e-mail, or even leaving a message with our answering service; otherwise we will consider your appointment a cancellation. 

For the safety of your pets before entering our building, please restrain all animals with a leash or in a carrier.  If you need assistance getting your pets out of your vehicle or into the building, please call ahead and we would be happy to help.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Absolutely love this vet! We are are first time dog owners and always want to do the best by our dog. The vet we were at before made us feel like we were bad dog parents, when in fact we were just unaware of certain aspects to owning and caring for dogs. Tickle-Blagg makes sure to give their advice as a learning opportunity, and doesn't make us feel like we've been judged. I highly recommend this vet!"

  • "15 years with tickle-Blagg, and I would never think of going elsewhere. When a vet calls you and talks personally to you after a visit, you know you have found the best. It is always a pleasure to visit with the front desk, the assistants, and both doctors.Tickle-Blagg is the very best clinic I have found in all the years of owning pets."
