Growth Matters (drag the arrow to the left) A primary lesson of biology is that you either grow or you decay. We choose to grow. It matters because of how seriously we take patient care. We are constantly adopting exciting advances in veterinary medicine. We are always training and learning and striving to get better. Excellence is the standard here. And our team doesn't walk through the doors in the morning in order to punch a clock. We come in to change lives. We are proud of the reputation we have built in this community and this industry. And we do it all because we love you and your pet like family, and believe you deserve the best. Growth Matters

Recognition

We love creating a small-town feel. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have big time accomplishments. We are one of the few practices around to earn AAHA certification, something that fewer than 15% of practices nationwide earn. This is an award-winning practice that practices high quality medicine, and just happens to be staffed by some of the most compassionate and caring people you will ever meet. This is the attitude we take in everything we do. It’s why we look at every pet who walks through our doors as our own. Because in a way, they are.

The Bark of The Town

Brenda Our Great Pyrenees has serious "stranger danger" so going to the vet has always been a challenge. Dr. Miner is WONDERFUL with him! She knows his quirks, gives him his space, allows us to help hold him if needed to keep him calmer (vs. one of the vet techs), and by the end of each visit he warms up to her and gladly accepts some yummy treats. We recently started taking our cat to her also when our previous vet retired, and she helped to resolve her allergy and scratching issues too. We moved and still go here even though it's far from our home because she is so fantastic!

Brenda
 Marla We have been taking our pets to Griffith Small Animal Hospital & Dr. Bob Griffith for over 30 years (soon after he opened his practice in Austin). We have always received the best care possible for our pets. Dr. Griffith is caring and responsive. Several times we have had to deal with a sick dog while out of the state and out of the country and even if we were separated by many miles, Dr. Griffith helped us tremendously. Recently we drove from Dallas and back the same day just to take Gelsey to Dr. Griffith in Austin. I would highly recommend Griffith Small Animal Hospital to anyone who wants the best possible care for their pets. We will continue to be clients of Griffith Small Animal Hospital for at least the next 30 years!

Aaron I love you guys, Griffith. My family has relied on the talented and compassionate staff at this hospital for almost 20 years. My parents have been rescuing and finding homes for cats for many years, while providing love and excellent care to each and every saved cat along the way.

Aaron
Dineen All the people at Griffith are wonderful - caring and sensitive. I especially love Dr. Miner. She is patient and gracious, even with the most seemingly minor questions. She is respectful of my worries and answers all the questions in a focused and positive way. And she is extremely skilled and caring with my sweet kitties. She even loves doting on them as I do. First rate all around.

lauren I am so impressed by this practice and staff. The level of geniune care is outstanding. Vet techs and receptionists are very knowledgable and care about learning more. I have been to so many clinics, but I feel like Griffith is passionate about their animals whereas sometimes you see others who have simply taken a job. Dr. Skyler is of course, a knock out vet, but her team (including kennel techs) are super with great attitudes and answers. Very thankful for them! Wish I had known about this vet when I moved to Austin 5 years ago. Now, we drive in from Bastrop.

-Lesley W I have taken my beloved dogs to Dr. Griffith for about 20 years. He has been a caring doctor and friend to me, Honey and Thunder. I have seen other vets there when he was unavailable, and they were always thorough and seemed to genuinely care about us as well.

-Claire C Dr. Griffith is a gem. I've been bringing Iggy, my golden retriever, and Chloe, my beagle, to him since they were pups. They're 10 years old now and we drive in from San Antonio because I wouldn't trade him for anything. This clinic provides humane, compassionate care for all animals.
