About Us

Four Paws @ Four Points is an Austin-owned and operated veterinary hospital that opened in February 2001. Partners Dr. Lisa Okonsky and Dr. Martha Kleypas have transformed a spacious office building into a veterinary hospital and boarding kennel. The buildings are situated on 3.3 acres of beautiful Hill Country property.

Our hospital renovation was based on our desire to create a warm, home-like atmosphere for both you and your pet. We have placed couches and easy chairs in our exam rooms and public areas to create an environment that is more soothing to our patients and their families – and to make a visit to the veterinarian a little less stressful!

We strive to offer the finest medical and surgical services, client education, and a comfortable and fun boarding experience for your pet. Dr. Okonsky and Dr. Kleypas have a cumulative 55 years of experience working in veterinary medicine, from kennel technician to veterinarian.

Our staff at Four Paws @ Four Points is our biggest asset. We have been fortunate to employ a group of wonderful, personable, pet-loving, and thoughtful people who truly care about your pet and have the professional experience to do so safely.
