White Rock Animal Hospital

No Appointment Necessary

We all live in a hectic, sometimes frantic world, where we try to stay organized but things just don't go as planned. At White Rock Animal Hospital, we do not require your pet to have an appointment to be seen during regular office hours. Drop offs are encouraged, as it gives our staff time to fully evaluate your pets medical issues and complete all necessary procedures that are indicated.

We are happy to schedule you an appointment if you work better on a schedule. Our only required appointments are for surgical procedures, extended diagnostic testing, radiographs, EKG, certain laboratory tests, or biochemical assays. These appointments are needed to give our staff plenty of time to complete the procedures, and have time for doctor interpretation and review before dismissal.

We strive to complete all diagnostics the day of the appointment and not have to resort to callbacks the following day. We know your time is important, and point of care diagnosis and treatment is what we strive for in all cases. 

Transparent Veterinarian Fees

We will do our best to give you a complete and concise estimate of all recommended procedures and their cost, prior to proceeding. We strive to be up front and transparent in our fees and recommended treatment/diagnostic protocols. We do not extend credit for routine veterinary services. We recommend CareCredit for all third party payments, and highly recommend new pet owners consider pet insurance to help off set the rising costs of veterinary care today. All services are to be paid in full at time of discharge, unless prior arrangements have been made with our staff. We honor all major credit cards, check and cash. 

We are fortunate to have some of the best veterinary facilities and specialists in the Southwest US, with the very best in technology a phone call away. CT Scans, MRI, Radiation therapy, Oncology, Neurology, Advanced Surgery, Echocardiograms. The most advanced care is available is available 24/7 in the DFW Metroplex. We will gladly refer you and your pet for second opinions, and advanced care, whenever necessary. We are sure to maintain a direct relationship with all our local specialty clinics and Board Certified Specialists so we can have a smooth transition for your pet.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Part of the Family

    We have entrusted more than just our pets’ health to WRAH. Since 2015, my husband and I have trusted the amazing staff to care for our first furr-baby, Hershel. Now at 110 lbs, he’s grown into a big and strong boy. All of the staff have been quick to support us no matter how “small” the concern, like those nasty burrs and ear infections. Regardless of the distance, we knew that WRAH would be there to keep our growing family healthy for years to come. Words can’t express our appreciation for their kindness and care.

    Thank you!"

  • "There are so many things to like about White Rock Animal Hospital. What I am about to say only scratches the surface.
    I like all of the people. Everyone is so personable and caring, from the doctors to the vet-techs to Cindy on the front lines. I like how everyone there treats my dogs as though they are their own. I like that only two long-time veterinarians practice there, so you are guaranteed to see someone who knows your pet rather than having to start over with someone new every time. I like the fact that both doctors are incredibly knowledgeable with years of valuable experience between them. I like that their MO is to use common sense rather than to go crazy recommending countless tests. I can show either of them a lump or bump on my dog, and they can usually tell me what it is and what to do about it without performing unnecessary and invasive procedures..."

  • "For the past 26 years, I have trusted White Rock Animal Hospital...Dr. Bob Hawthorne and Dr. Patty Williams are caring, empathetic, and extremely knowledgeable...Their love of animals reflects in their treatment, and in taking the time to explain everything in detail....The staff at WRAH are also the greatest! From Cindy at reception, to vet techs Sharon, Renee, and Connie, they all make you feel like family. My dogs LOVE boarding there, eagerly jumping out of the car when we arrive!
    I highly recommend White Rock Animal Hospital, and look forward to many more years of their care. They ARE the BEST."
