Whether you’re needing to book a wellness appointment, sick appointment, or emergency care, we’re here to meet your and your furry friends’ needs. Our therapies range from Chinese herbals and acupuncture to laser therapy and advanced surgery, and the Austin pet parent community is loving it. Our clients have recognized us for our superb customer service and results-driven patient care, and we’ve been voted Austin’s best vet the past four years! Come see what the hype is all about. We can’t wait to meet you!

Grocery Pup

Grocery Pup is an Austin born and bred company that provides fresh dog food that’s as close to homemade as it gets without making it yourself. Grocery Pup was co-founded by Ruth Stedman, who adopted her pup Lola with her husband Javier while they were students at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. Lola, an adorable Pomksy, quickly became the center of their family. Similar to how they choose their own food, they knew they wanted Lola to have a fresh whole foods diet. Grocery Pup meals are cooked sous-vide, a unique low-temperature cooking process that retains the nutritional value of the ingredients like raw food but eliminates any harmful pathogens. All of its ingredients are human-grade, non-GMO, and pesticide-free. Grocery Pup takes extra care in cooking its food by making its meals in a USDA certified kitchen in Texas following the same safety and quality standards as human food. It’s Grocery Pup’s mission to build a community of health conscious dog-owners who hold their dog food to as high of a standard as the food we consume. Grocery Pup is available at Tomlinson’s Feed throughout Austin or you can order online at

Kim the Dog Trainer

Dog trainer Kim Roche has a seemingly magic ability. Canines inherently know to listen to her calming presence. It’s not surprising when you learn that this Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT) has been working one-on-one and in groups with pups for over 20 years. Her calm, collected vibe is reflected in her dog-friendly, humane and compassionate training methods using rewards to teach you and your doggo to communicate effectively. Kim offers group classes for basic through advanced training as well as a board and train program where your best pal lives with Kim for a spell to learn and practice new obedience behaviors. That perfect Austin spring weather is almost here, and that means long walks on the Green Belt or grabbing beers with friends on an outdoor patio. With Kim’s help, you can bring your furball family members along for the fun without worrying about being distracted by wrangling your best friends to behave. Need a hand with training? Drop Kim a line.
