FM 529 Animal Hospital
While I was visiting Houston, my Pit Bull had to be quarantined. I chose 529 Animal Hospital because of their proximity to the location where I was staying and the fact that they had availability. Marci, the Doc and all the vet techs were wonderful - which made a terrible situation much easier. They were very kind and understanding, explained the entire quarantine process to me and told me to call as often as I wanted to check on my pup - I called every single day and they were never annoyed or too busy to speak to me. When I picked him up, he was happy and healthy and had made friends with everyone there. One of the vet techs confessed that they may have given him a few too many treats... my response: How dare you love my dog while he's in the slammer! When we left, they gave him hugs and kisses, gave me a hug, helped me carry his things to the car and made me promise to bring him by to visit whenever we're in town. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience during a really tough situation.

Lone Star Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Mary Egan is a wonderful, sensitive, and caring individual and it shows in how she treats even the most "resistant" of pets. We have a wonderful cat who gets quite "psycho" when she has to see the vet. Dr. Egan and her staff are unbelievably patient with her. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Tracy Animal Hospital
The absolute best animal hospital to go to. Our family has been going there since 2000. We moved to the Pearland area in 2013. They are so loving and caring at the animal hospital that we travel from Pearland to Cypress for our animals to be taken care of.

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
