Comments :    Dr. Lackey and his staff are professional, friendly, and the love they have for animals is very evident. They have been absolutely great. Dr. Lackey is a superb veterinarian and we trust our beloved pets to his care. We could not give a stronger recommendation than that.

Comments :    Drs. Lackey and staff are always there for our family and pets. Hunter, Sophie, Max, Ginger and Crickette. Hwy 30 Vet is literally an extension of our family. If you are looking for a "family doctor" for your pet family, this is the place. Each pet is treated as their own.

Comments :    Really impressed! Dr. Gary made me feel very comfortable and made sure I understood what needed to be done for my dog that had an ear infection. Her infection turned out to be a really bad one and because we had cultured the ear, my dog was put on the correct antibiotic. Thank you Dr. Gary!

Comments :    Dr. Gary took great care of my dog, Daisy. She had a bad ear infection which he treated with an "ear pack". It was so nice because I did not have administer any medicine in my dog's ears myself.

Comments :    I absolutely love this place. When you walk in the girls are always very friendly and knowledgeable. They always make sure I am aware of what the doctor wants to do and anything I might not know to look for, like the ear infection my cat had last month. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my baby, Maddy. Thank you for giving her so much attention and care!!!

Comments :    HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! The finest quality service is provided by the most genuine, knowledgeable, and compassionate experienced veterinary staff of Dr. Lackey and Dr. Diane at Highway 30 Vet Clinic. After making several calls to other local vet clinics, I immediately felt defeated by the high cost estimates I would be required to pay upfront. I began to lose hope in my efforts to save my dog, Veave. I took the recommendation of a friend, “Go take your dog to Highway 30 Vet Clinic. Dr. Lackey and Dr. Diane will take good care of your dog and are willing to work out anything with you”. I made a call to Highway 30 Vet Clinic and spoke with the exceptionable receptionist, Jennifer, and set up an appointment the next morning with ease. Simply expressed, my experience at Highway 30 Vet Clinic began with tears of sadness as I carried my deathly ill dog, Veave, through the front door with little to no hope for a positive outcome. I was immediately greeted by Dr. Diane and several very courteous staff members, Jennifer, Dana and Natasha. I was informed as to the severity of Veaves’ illness which would require emergency surgery. I had to express my financial situation and I already knew that I could not afford to pay to save Veave. At that moment I knew, I would most likely be putting my dog down. Moments later, I was greeted by Dr. Lackey and Dr. Diane who reviewed the x-rays with me. I knew I was about to be faced with a tough and emotional decision. I was surprised and extremely grateful when Dr. Lackey gave me news that he would be applying the Moore Fund, a generous donation to Veaves bill, along several other extremely generous discounts from Highway 30 Vet Clinic resulting in less than half the total amount. The decision was easy, and I felt so much relief. Veave was going to receive treatment! Following the surgery and several days of recovery for Veave I was continuously kept abreast of Veaves progress. Those previous tears of sadness transformed into tears of joy and happiness. I now have a happy and healthy, tail-wagging Veave. I will forever be in their debts and am extremely grateful for the kindness, compassion and generosity Veave and I were shown during the last few weeks.

Comments :    Dr. Gary and Dr. Diane played a very important role in identifying the root cause of our family member's critical health issue. Being from out of town, they reached out to our local vet to understand what steps had already been taken to evaluate the issue so not to duplicate efforts and increase costs. They refused to leave that day until they had some answers, and long after their office had closed, they performed surgery and removed a plastic toy piece. They nurtured him back to health, continuing to go over and beyond any standard. In the 33 years that we've owned pets, we've rarely experienced this level of passion, caring, communication, and dedication. Dr. Gary, Dr. Diane, Dana, Jennifer, and the entire staff are absolutely amazing and we will forever be grateful for them saving Chance's life.

Comments :    We were recommended to this vet clinic by my best friend. I called 4 vet clinics in Conroe and none would do payment plans. My son and I are so grateful for Highway 30 Vet Clinic and their caring heart. The staff is so wonderful and thoughtful that it makes not only the owner of the dog, but the dog feel comfortable. All I can say is thank you for being the way you are.

Comments :    Our dog Deuce, was a long time patient of Highway 30 vet after he was found 4 years ago after escaping our backyard by a vet tech who was jogging in our area. Every since then, Highway 30 has been our veterinarian of choice and Deuce's caretakers when he became sick or if we were out of town. Recently, Deuce became very sick while Daniel and I were out of the country for our wedding and honeymoon. Dr. Lackey and his team worked day and night to figure out the issue and make the best decisions for Deuce on our behalf in our absence. Once we returned, they all spent time explaining our options and causes for Duece's illness, as well as giving us both their personal cell phone numbers to call at any time should we have any questions. The vet techs took time to explain how to administer medication, and never made us feel like we were wasting their time. In the end, Duece was unable to overcome his illness. As devestated as we are by the loss of Deuce, we are so grateful and thankful to have a team at Highway 30 Vet looking after our family. We will continue to bring our dogs to Dr. Lackey and his team because there are no better people to take care of our animals. We will never forget the kindness, compassion, and generosity we were shown during the past couple of weeks. I would recommend their veterinary and boarding services to anyone looking for a quality veterinary care and good people all around.

Comments :    I would not trust my pets with anyone but Hwy 30 Vet Clinic! We have two dogs, one is 9 yrs old and the other is a puppy that we actually adopted through Hwy 30. Dr. Gary suggested Buck, who is arthritic and tends to have a dry coat and dandruff, start taking Dasequin chewables and asked us to start putting a fish oil supplement they have at the office on his food once a day. His coat has improved and is so shiny, and he is more playful with our puppy and gets around much easier! They are loving and kind people who truly care about the pets they treat and their owners too! Our little family could not be more blessed by such wonderful people!

Comments :    Hwy 30 Vet is the only place we would trust our four-legged babies with! They have treated our pets for years and recently went through a devastating loss with us. Our 11 year old yellow lab, Gauge, went downhill faster than anyone would have ever expected. Dr. Gary and his team worked so hard to not only treat him, but make sure he stayed as comfortable as possible during his final two weeks. They called us regularly to check on him, made sure someone was available almost immediately when we needed to see a doctor, and most importantly discussed our options as honestly and gently as possible. Due to complications from multiple illnesses, we had to make the tough decision to put our baby down. Dr. Gary met us at the clinic at 9pm on a Saturday evening and stayed with us until we had composed ourselves enough to go home. Each time we arrive at the clinic, whether it's for a routine check-up or a major concern, we feel welcomed and we know that our pets are taken care of as if they were their own. I HIGHLY recommend Hwy 30, they have proven again and again that they will go above and beyond!

Comments :    I can not say enough about this clinic. Still Creek Ranch would be over ran with cats due to the fact they breed so quickly. They have donated a lot of time and money into our animals at the Ranch. Thank you so much...Dr. Lackey. The three wild girl cats are doing well. They have not become domesticated but they are healthy and much more friendly. Thanks again for all your help....to Still Creek Boys Ranch.

Comments :    I've been using Dr. Lackey as a vet for close to 20 years, I guess. I've had several dogs adopted, handed down to me by relatives, and/or 2 raised from pups. I have never used another vet since my college roommate from San Antonio asked me to take the road trip with her when she made her yearly trek to take her pets to Dr. Lackey. I've been without pets for a couple of years since my little girl Angelique died, but I am looking at adopting another 'baby' and the 1st thing I am doing is making sure that Dr. Lackey is still where he [Dr. Gary Lackey] was the last time I visited! I want to add that if you think Dr. Lackey charges a few dollars more - which I haven't noticed being higher than any other vet, those few dollars are worth it because you are paying for over 30 years of EXPERIENCE and QUALITY that you won't find at many other locations.

Comments :    On Friday, Feb. 10, 2012 we came home to find our beautiful dog Jaxson very ill and not able to get up, we called Dr. Lackey at 10 minutes to 6:00 and he waited for us to rush Jaxson into his office. When we arrived he met us outside at our car (that meant so much to me as I was so anxious)however,when we got Jaxson into the office, there was nothing that could be done for him as we found out later he had a cancer that was not treatable and he died at 6:20 that night in Dr. Lackey's office. Dr. Lackey was so kind and gentle to Jaxson and so very kind to us and helped us get through this hour of horrible shock. All our dogs have been special to us but this dog was our "baby" and we miss him so much. What helps us most is knowing that he was in the best hands even till his last minute of life and we appreciate and love these people. Thank you Dr. Lackey and your staff for everything. You are the best!

Comments :    Bill and I wish to offer our recommendation of Highway 30 Veterinary Clinic. We moved from New Hampshire to College Station, Texas four years ago. Your clinic was recommended by several people. We are thankful that we followed their advice. Our dog, Rascal has always been treated with kindness and tenderness whether by vet assistants, the front desk crew, and of course both Dr. Gary and Dr. Diane Lackey. Like any parent, we were anxious at first to bring our 4 pawed child to strangers. Immediately we were put at ease. Not only were Rascal's needs met, so were ours. Recently, when Rascal became ill, Dr. Lackey made himself available to us 24 hours in case there was a change in Rascal's condition. He constantly called just to check on Rascal and us. That has really meant a lot to us. We would like to thank everyone for making Rascal and us feel like we were the only patients in your practice. Blessing to you and your staff, Carol and Bill Khoury

Comments :    We have a 4 year old Australian Cattle Dog that is a huge part of our family. We just moved to Texas from Illinois when "Dog" turned deathly ill. We did not know who or where to take him. We turned to Highway 30 Vet Clinic. The first reason was a big professional sign and overall clean appearance on the outside. When we went inside the front receptionists were outstanding. They were courteous and caring about the task at hand. "Dog" is not leash trained and that was not a problem since he responds to voice commands. At every visit we were greeted with "need something to drink?" and an occassional tissue for the wiping of the eyes. They made us feel like we were at home and everything was going to be fine. Then we met an amazing staff. They handled "Dog" withtrue dog handling skills and just plain "down home care". They were always treating "Dog" with love & care even when they had to do things to "Dog" that he didn't like. This staff has to rank as one of the best in the country. Dr. Gary Lackey is one of the greats. After hours of fluids, medicine, tests and a surgery, he got "Dog" up and running again. From not knowing the animal or its background to knowing him inside and out is simply amazing. In the short time we have been here (3 weeks), Dr. Lackey saved the life of my Best Friend. We will always be grateful. We will be customers for as long as we have animals. If you need a vet with a clean facility, amazing staff and a great vet, then you need to be using the Highway 30 Vet Clinic. Respectfully, Al Peeler

Comments :    I would recommend Highway 30 Vet and Drs. Lackey to anyone who needs vet service or boarding. The clinic is clean, staff is friendly and the Drs. make sure that I know and understand my Bella's health and needs. The pricing may be a little more expensive than a few other clinics in town, but you ALWAYS end up receiving above and beyond what you pay due to the quality and dedication that they have for their clients and patients.

Overall Highway 30 Veterinary Clinic offers the best medicine with the best customer service in town. If you are looking for a vet.... Go there and you will see how happy and satisfied you will be!

Comments :    Just a note to Dr. Gary Lackey and the whole staff at the clinic for taking such good care of my "baby". I brought my cat (Lupe) in last week for some test and was scared that my news might be bad. Thankfully everything was OK. Dr. Lackey was so king to sit and talk with me and go over the test results and provide me with suggestions for his care. I appreciate the time he took to do this. This cat is my baby. We took him in off the street and saved his life. I don't know what I would do without him. It helps to know I have a vet that cares and is willing to help. Thanks again everyone. Keep up the good work.

Comments :    Highway 30 Veterinary Clinic's care is the "gold standard" of animal care. When our recently adopted "rescue" kitten became gravely ill overnight, we put in a call to you for help. You worked us into your schedule and confirmed his severe status and we left him in your care over the weekend. After the best of TLC including hydration, two antibiotics, regular checkups (and calls to our home advising us on his status) we were able to take home our adorable Emmitt on Monday Morning. We continued the antibiotics for another week, and he is back to his lively healthy and happy self. We are forever grateful to you for saving Emmitts's life! Thank you also for the caring attention you gave our other "rescue" cat, Bonnie. Today she had all "A's" on her annual checkup.

Comments :    What can we say about Highway 30 Veterinary Clinic??? EVERYTHING! The husband and wife team of the Lackey's are Wonderful people. From the moment we walk in the door, we are greeted and treated as family. The Lackey's not only know us on a first name basis, but they know our pets' names as well! The Lackey's could not have picked a better team of staff to have with them. Our needs are met as soon as we walk in, from offering drinks to candy! The environment is clean and friendly, and our dogs think it's their second home. The Lackey's know how important our pets' health is to us and always remiain to have reasonable prices. This winter when we go out of town, we know where our dogs are staying...with Highway 30 Veterinary Clinic ofcourse! We trust their kenneling and know it's just like another home for Jojo and Ginger. Thanks Highway 30 Veterinary team...You have our loyalty for years to come. -Stacy, Anthony, Jojo and Ginger

Comments :    Basically the way I would have to start this story is with Uno, as my youngest son named her came into our lives during Christmas break 2002 when we adopted her from a litter of beautiful Golden Retrievers in the small community town of Richmond, Texas while we were picking up another one of our dogs that we had boarded named Sami. Dogs have been a part of my life since I was 7 years old and I have passed this tradition throughout my adult lifetime to always own more than one dog. Uno was special from the first day we brought her home. She developed a sense to know exactly when to strut her stuff and exactly when to turn on the glamor to the spot lights. She constantly became a strong pillar of trust and loyalty throughout her years of growing up. You see, it's one thing to own a dog, or any other pet; but to love them and for them to love you back is the beauty of it. That is why when you have to rush your favorite buddy to the animal hospital and you're told that favorite animal of yours is in really bad shape and you will just have to wait until the morning to see what happens, a reality gut check seems to overtake the moment. What is this special part of your life, a part of your household and family simply in one moment is taken away from your world? I know she is only a dog, an animal that is supposed to die most likely in a 10-15 year life expectancy- but still she is my friend, my buddy, my companion. I believe in prayer, I believe God loves animals and I believe especially God loves veterinarians like Drs. Gary and Diane Lackey and their whole wonderful staff of wonderful animal loving people. Uno made a recovery to diabetes and thyroid symptoms and even though we have to watch her diet(no more pizza or cookies) and I have to administer insulin and thyroid medication daily, I thank the Good Lord that is the a small price that I have to pay to have MY FRIEND UNO back at home running in the backyard and strutting her stuff being a part of the family again. And... by the way we have 5 dogs all together so life is Good at the RAE house!

Comments :    Family and home are very important to me. Whenever I bring my pets to Dr. Gary or Dr. Diane at Highway 30 Veterinary Clinic, I feel like I'm bringing them home to see my family. Both of the Lackeys always take the time to visit with me and explain every aspect of the exam and treatment for my pets, and their love for animals comes across in their actions. This became very apparent when my Daschund, Jackson, developed serious issues with his back. Dr. Lackey explained what the problems were and let me know that although there were some quick fixes for the immediate problem, Jackson was not going to get completely better. He let me make the descisons on what I felt was best for Jackson, and when it came time for Jackson to be euthanized so he would be in any more pain, Dr. Lackey was compassionate and sympathetic to the pain that I was going through. He took care of everything,and helped me through a difficult time. I know that when I bring my other two dogs in for exams or if they have a problem, Dr. Lackey will take care of them as if they were his own, and I know that he will be there for them no matter what...after all...that's what family does.
