We have been taking our pets to Dr Gosney for two generations now, and would never dream of taking our fur babies anywhere else. From simple things to vaccinations to very complicated orthopedic surgery, to end of life care.. He's been there through it all with so many of our animals. Not only is his knowledge and skill spot on, but his warm, friendly personality is one of a kind.. You will see what I mean when you meet him. We sing nothing but Dr Goaneys praises, and have for a long time.

Yes, Dr Gary Gosney is probably the highest priced vet in Temple. BUT you get what you pay for. If you looking for cheap, go on the internet and do it yourself. GOOD LUCK!!!!! Fortunately, that is exactly what my wife and I have had with Dr Gosney. He is kind, considerate, compassionate,and understanding. We have patronized his practice for almost 30 years. We would and never will consider seeing another veterinarian. We bought our 5 year old daughter a poodle pup for her birthday. For the next 22 (yes 22) years, Dr Gosney cared for its health and well being(to which I attribute its longevity). And when the dreaded day came to compassionately end Fifi's time with us, NO ONE was more understanding and comforting than Dr Gosney and his staff. After a couple of years, we decided to acquire another pet. This time a black lab....Max. After eight years, we lost Max. Dr Gosney, who had also cared for Max, made a generous donation in Max's memory to the Texas A&M University Veterinarian School. Time passes and hearthaches fade. We now have two chihuahuas and they, like Fifi and Max, will NEVER have less than the best in medical care. And that care will be from Dr Gosney and his staff. They are the BEST and if that is what you desire for your pets, then there is no other more qualified and experienced team than that which you will find at the Temple Veterinary Hospital.

Dr. Gosney is awesome! We have nothing but great things to say about him as our vet. We always feel like our dogs are in good hands with him and his staff. Glad we found him.
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
