What is GCVS?
Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists was founded in 1988 as one of the first private practice referral-only veterinary hospitals in the country. Our three founding members envisioned a group of highly specialized, board-certified veterinarians who were able to use their combined experience and expertise to provide the highest quality, most comprehensive specialized care for companion animals, as well as working to advance veterinary technology through education and innovation. Today, GCVS is an internationally respected veterinary specialty hospital with 14 departments, 27 specialists, and over 200 trained support staff. GCVS is committed to continuing our legacy of excellence and leading innovation in veterinary medicine as our hospital continues to grow, with new departments added every year since 2011.
Our commitment is to provide the very best specialty medicine while recognizing and supporting the unique needs of each patient, client, and referring veterinarian. With over 360 years of combined experience, our doctors are able to draw on the extensive knowledge and skills of our other board-certified specialists for complex cases. Our intensive care units provide continuous care around the clock with an on-site or on-call veterinarian, along with a devoted and experienced support staff of veterinary technicians.
We consider GCVS to be an extension of your primary veterinarian, and work closely with them to provide advanced diagnostic procedures, sophisticated technology, and the exceptional skills of our many board-certified specialists. Combined with the 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. We constantly strive to enhance each patient’s care using cutting-edge technology, innovative thinking, and a state-of-the-art facility. As members of your 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.
