Client Reception Area

Upon entering Stonebriar Veterinary Centre you will immediately recognize that there is a Stonebriar difference. You will be welcomed by one of our friendly and knowledgeable receptionists who can check you in immediately with our computerized medical record system. While you wait for your appointment in our large, open atrium you can view cats lounging in our upstairs cat condos or sit and relax with our calming fountain.

If shopping is your thing, there are multiple items (toys, treats, brushes and more) for purchase. For our clients with children we have toys and books to keep them entertained during your appointment. For added convenience we also have multiple client service desks to accommodate your needs.

Private cat and dog exam rooms

Private Exam Rooms

From the biggest dog to the smallest pocket pet, Stonebriar Veterinary Centre has multiple exam rooms to accommodate your pet’s needs. Our large dog room has a padded lift table to aid in patient comfort and give us the ability to examine your pet thoroughly.

We have a feline only exam room with Feliway (feline pheromones) to help keep your feline calm. The well-designed exam table also gives your cat extra security. All exam rooms have x-ray viewers and other diagnostic tools for our veterinarians. Anatomical models and illustrative learning tools are also used in the exam rooms to aid in client education. The exam rooms provide a private experience in a clean, quiet and comfortable atmosphere. Thanks to our computerized system we are also able to offer the convenience of checking you in or out of the clinic in one of our exam rooms.

Stonebriar Veterinary Centre Treatment Area

Treatment Area

From time to time, your pet may need specific treatments for their medical problems. We offer both in and out patient care. Most out patient services can be done during your exam time, others may need to be hospitalized for treatment or dropped off for further diagnostics (bloodwork, radiographs, ultrasound exams). We have separate dog and cat ICU areas that are constantly monitored by our doctors and nursing staff. These are a part of the main treatment area but separated by glass doors to maintain a quiet and safe environment for your pet.

We have in clinic blood and urine testing and x-ray equipment available. Some of these tests include:

  • Organ function test – blood chemistry
  • Complete blood count – red and white cell counts
  • Urinalysis
  • Heartworm testing
  • Internal parasite testing
  • Ear cytology (checking for ear infections)
  • Skin cytology (checking for skin infections)
  • Tonometry (checking eye pressures)
  • Fungal cultures
  • ECG’s (checking heart rhythm)
  • And more…

Our treatment area has three treatment stations that accommodate all sizes of pets for procedures such as blood sample collection, wound treatment, ear flushing, bandaging, dental procedures and minor emergencies.

Frisco Veterinary Surgery

Veterinary Surgery

Stonebriar Veterinary Centre offers a wide array of surgical and anesthesia services. All of our veterinarians are trained to perform soft tissue surgeries including: spays, neuters, tumor removals, bladder surgery, abdominal surgery, intestinal surgery, eye surgery, laceration repairs and many more.
Our surgical suite is well stocked with the best equipment to ensure a safe and effective treatment for your pet. We have a suction unit available for abdominal surgeries, a radiosurgery unit for specialized surgeries, and several surgical instrument packs customized to the type of surgery we are performing.

We minimize risk and complications from surgery by monitoring temperature, ECG, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and blood pressure. We utilize 3 electronic monitoring machines so all our patients are monitored constantly while under anesthesia. In addition to electronic monitoring your pet’s nurse will be with the doctor throughout each procedure and monitor your pet through the entire procedure. Warm water heating blankets are also used for each patient to prevent hypothermia during surgery and to speed recovery time. To reduce possible infection, our doctors adhere to a strict sterile protocol. This includes, wearing a cap, surgical mask, sterile gown and sterile gloves for each procedure. We sterilize all surgical equipment onsite. After the procedure is complete, a nurse will be with your pet until they are awake and comfortable. For small or young animals a specialized animal incubator is used to keep them warm and quiet during their immediate recovery time.

Most of our surgical patients do go home the same day. We may recommend keeping certain cases in the hospital for continued care depending on the client and patients needs.


In addition to a physical exam and other diagnostics, your pet may need to have radiographs (x-rays) to help diagnose their medical problem. Stonebriar Veterinary Centre has onsite x-ray capabilities including dental x-rays.

Radiographs (x-rays) are helpful to veterinarians in diagnosing and managing a number of diseases including: heart disease, bone disease, dental disease, abdominal problems, respiratory disease, kidney/bladder stones and more.All radiographs (x-rays) are viewed by our veterinarians as soon as they are processed and then reviewed with each client in the exam room. This allows you to have a better understanding of your pet’s medical problem.

Ultrasound is also available at Stonebriar Veterinary Centre. We have an ultrasonagrapher who can perform most exams within 24 hours. The images are then viewed by a board certified (specialist) radiologist and a report is given to your doctor who will then review it with you.
