What is GCVS?

Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists is an organization created to bring together a wide range of specialists in one facility providing the highest quality, most comprehensive specialized care for companion animals.  As one of the first private specialty veterinary hospitals in Texas, we have flourished during the past 24 years growing from an ‘idea’ of 3 veterinary specialists to a large, internationally respected veterinary specialty hospital.  The departments of Cardiology, Critical Care, Dermatology, Diagnostic Imaging, Internal Medicine, Nutrition and Oncology (Medical & Radiation) are committed to continuing this legacy of excellence and leading innovation in veterinary medicine. After merging our practices and their specialties (Critical Care, Dermatology, Diagnostic Imaging, Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology) we’ve continued to grow, adding two new specialties (Cardiology and Nutrition) in 2011 & 2012.  We’ve discovered new ways to offer enhanced support for our clients, patients and our referring veterinary community. This includes access to our 24 hour afterhours service should an existing patient’s condition change and require re-evaluation.

GCVS is centrally located in the heart of Houston’s Galleria area, and continues to be a referral-only, multi-practice veterinary hospital. Working closely with referring veterinarians we provide advanced diagnostic procedures, sophisticated technology and the exceptional skills of our board-certified specialists. We consider GCVS to be an extension of your primary veterinarian. Combined with exciting opportunities for veterinary specialty medicine and our hospital’s vision, our goal is to provide incomparable service to our clients, patients, and the veterinary community.

GCVS’ commitment is to provide the very best specialty medicine while recognizing and supporting the unique needs of each patient, client and referring veterinarian. Our specialists collaborate on many complex cases, with their extensive knowledge, skill and over 125 years of collective experience. Our intensive care unit provides continuous care around the clock with an on-site veterinarian and support staff of experienced and devoted veterinary technicians.

We constantly strive to enhance the care of our patients by remaining on the leading edge of each of our specialties.  As members of the family, pets deserve nothing less than the best care available. Our priority lies with giving you and your family all the support you need – through communication, care and compassion. We are committed to being Houston’s Veterinary Medical Center.
