Animal Healthcare Clinic of Southlake has been
a premier veterinary clinic in the greater Dallas area since 1993.

Dr. Paul Bruton dedicated his career to providing veterinary services that are top quality and personalized to fit your pet’s needs. Since his retirement, Drs. Michelle Sanders-Truelsen, Michelle Branton, Sarah McKenny and the rest of the team have committed to continuing that legacy.

We serve pets with our unique combination of veterinary care. We are strong believers in the power of modern medicine, but we are not afraid to embrace proven alternative therapies like acupuncture and cold-laser therapy. Whether your pet needs annual wellness care or pain relief via alternative veterinary therapy, we want to be the veterinary clinic you turn to.

We value the trust you place in us and strive to provide your pet with the care they deserve. For our staff, their pets are part of the family and we carry that perspective into our treatment of your beloved companions. As such, your pet will be treated with love, empathy, and respect. So if you are looking for a place that is not just another Southlake vet, then look no further than Animal Healthcare Clinic of Southlake.

After the above and beyond experience with my last sweet doggie in her last days, this clinic is home for our pets. Personable staff, conservative treatment and Dr. Branton is the best! -Laura

I know that I chose the right vet for my cat! Everyone there is so nice and they always follow up so quickly! Even if my cat doesn’t love the vet they always try to make his time there as enjoyable as possible! -Heather

Hugo is a mini French poodle. He got an earache right before we were leaving on vacation to the beach. They got him in quickly, gave me medicine, and taught me how to treat him myself. He did great! They even explained poodles tend to get earaches so I told my groomer and they now put cotton in his ears. He has not had another earache. 5 stars! -Liz

I’ve been taking my animals to Animal Healthcare Clinic of Southlake (the vet on 1709 with the animal jokes) for over 14 years. I love doctors and I love the staff. They take great care of our cats/dogs and don’t try to sell us on things we don’t need. Reasonable prices and great care! Highly recommend you give them a try. -Jackie

The staff here is great! They are very patient and take time to explain everything. They always make sure to answer all of our questions. I definitely recommend them. -Courtney

The staff that I know at Southlake are awesome, caring people who love animals. -Joyce
