Immunization & Wellness

Every four-legged member of your family needs regular immunizations, physicals, and check-ups, just like a human. Make sure your pet is up to date by calling us today at 214-349-2260.

Dental Care

We offer full dental care, for cleanings, extractions, and preventative maintenance. We are dedicated to the best quality of life your pet can have, and dental care is a huge factor for a long and healthy life.

Spay and Neuter

It is very important that you spay or neuter your pet at the right time, to prevent over population.

Microchip Implants

Thousands of cats and dogs are lost every year, but it is difficult for animal services, veterinarians and volunteers to reunite pets with their families if they don’t have a chip. This painless and fast procedure will put your pet in a database for life. A simple scan will help your loved one come home!


Are you planning a family vacation? Need to go out of town? Are you concerned that you won’t be able to find someone trustworthy to care for your pet while you’re away?

We offer a convenient solution by providing pet boarding in our safe, clean, and comfortable environment. We understand that each pet is unique, and we will make every effort to ensure that your pet is safe, happy, and healthy during his or her stay with us. 

Basic Grooming

A well-groomed pet is a healthier and happier pet. At Abrams Royal Animal Clinic we want to make your best friend feel his best.

In addition to maintaining a healthy coat, your pet’s hair and nails should be trimmed on a regular basis. This important routine not only helps your pet stay in great shape, but also contributes to its overall good health.

Services we offer include baths, brush outs, nail trims, and ear cleanings.

Nutrition & Medication

Prescription Diet is formulated to help healthy dogs and cats maintain wellness, specialized to their needs. We also provide prescription medication for whatever your pet needs, such as heart worm pills, flea & tick meds, and shampoos.
