    Ok, I'll be very honest. An emergency hospital for pets is not someplace that I wanted to go on a Sunday night...or any time for that matter but if I have to go, it was a comfort to know that this place exists not too far from my home. You really appreciate that if you ever had to drive a great distance to an animal ER, which I did when I lived in the Baytown-Highlands area.

    Right away, I was greeted by James, the receptionist on duty and he took an real interest in my cat and the tragic circumstances of her injury. He expressed genuine concern and obviously cares about the animals that come into the clinic. He went out of his way to explain things to me - the policy, the charges, the procedures, the possible side effects of what was going to happen to my cat. The wait was not very long at all and a doctor was able to see my cat within a very reasonable time. All the time that I wait, James kept me updated on how much longer it would be.

    It was a happy ending for my cat and for that, I thank James, Dr. Stehoover (I believe that is how you spell her name) and the rest of the staff at the clinic. My followup visit to have the stitches removed was just as good and so I knew that I should tell everyone I know about this facility. I was also very impressed with the cleanliness of the facility. Now of course the prices are very expensive as you could imagine for emergency care, but I was able to put it on the credit card. Funny thing is that my cat was a rescue cat but once you make a commitment to an animal, you do your best to help them when they need you. I wish every unwanted pet had that opportunity...that is my wish.

    I have previously used the old Animal Emergency Clinic on Calder Road (across the parking lot) and was very happy with their care as a replacement for my own Veternarian. This time (8-6-2008), I was not pleased at all and will never return.
    I tried to take my dog in early this morning as she was very ill. She was not eating, drinking, vomiting and had lots of blood in her stool. She was very lethargic as well. This was very unusual behavior for her and I knew she was very ill. This was at 6:00AM. The clinic closes at 8:00AM. The girl that checked the animals in was not very receptive to my dogs illness. She asked me if I wanted them to check my dog out or wait until 8:00AM to see my own vet? I told her that my dog was only perking up at that moment because she was in her presence but had otherwise been very lethargic. The girl looked at her gums and said they were still pink and that she could probably wait to see my own vet that opened at 8 AM. In defense of the clinic, she was probably trying to save me the expense but it came off as "not wanting to be bothered at 6:00AM since they were closing at 8:00AM'. She did say that they would "go ahead" and see my dog if I chose to do that. I let her know that I chose to go to my own vet because I liked the care that they gave to her and wanted "them" to treat her. I know that I am just one patient and that they see a lot of trauma, but I know my dog and when she is very ill. They had NO ONE in the building at the time this happened.
    Follow up: My own vet determined that my dog had Gastroenteritis, a bacterial infection of the colon. Her blood chemistry was very imbalanced and her white blood cells were great. She was placed on antibiotics and should improve rapidly. This was determined by my own vet at 8:00AM.
    I will not return to VCA Animal Emergency Clinic SE for any reason.

    When a pet falls ill or gets injured late at night or over the weekend when your regular vet is not available this is the place to visit. It is going to cost you more than your normal pet visit but the care you receive is Superior. The staff are all very helpful and caring and the doctor is very knowledgeable. When a pet emergency happens, don't let the cost scare you away from visiting the Animal Emergency Clinic. Pros: Excellent Pet CareCons: Higher priced than a business hour pet visit
