Expert Veterinary Care at The Animal Clinic Since 1936

The Animal Clinic is the oldest veterinary clinic on Galveston Island. It has been in continuous operations since then. We set ourselves apart by offering exceptional veterinary care in more relaxed, home-like setting.
Our History

Established in 1936, The Animal Clinic stands as a proud pioneer of veterinary care on Galveston Island. More than just a clinic, it's a legacy built on compassion, community, and a love for all creatures great and small. Nestled right on the beach in a historic house, our location reflects the spirit of Galveston itself - welcoming, relaxed, and deeply connected to the community. This unique setting, awarded the Texas Heritage Award, offers a warm and comfortable environment where both pets and their families feel at ease.

We offer a separate cat-only clinic right next door to our main building. It’s the only, feline only practice on the island! Here cats can receive the specialized treatment they deserve in a more peaceful cat friendly environment. All of our Veterinarians are members of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and would love to meet your feline friend.

Sally's Fund

The Animal Clinic tries to help homeless animals in need whenever possible. Sadly, many of those animals come from neglect and abuse cases and require extensive medical care, which can lead to financial constraints. For this purpose the clinic has created Sally’s Fund, named in honor of a shelter dog in need.

I absolutely love this vet. One of the very few vets I’ve encountered lately who actually cares about the animals they treat. You can just tell that she loves animals and her staff is amazing! My faith in having a local vet - renewed!!!! I highly recommend!!!! I feel compelled to add that not only are these guys extremely kind and genuinely good folks, but they are extremely knowledgeable and phenomenal doctors and professionals. They saved my baby after he was hit by a car, and totally took care of him even before I could be notified he was hurt. Without the quick, selfless response these guys gave to my boy - he would not have survived his injuries. I know lots of vet’s that would have waited to confirm payment and even ownership before “wasting” their time, energy, and knowledge on a dog brought in by animal control. But not this vet. They took care of Rosco as soon as he arrived and gave him the very best care possible where by saving his life. And they did all of it before I was even located and notified because I was out looking for Rosco who had broken out of my house. I’m eternally grateful for these guys and how well they treated my guy before they even knew if he was a stray or not! That alone, for me, says everything needed about the kind of doctors and staff these hero’s are! If you are in Galveston and looking for a vet for your pets; in my opinion, this is the only possible choice! Hands down the best vet on the island and in surrounding areas! I just cannot say enough great things about this place! And every time I go there whether for flea meds or a check up, I’m continually surprised and impressed with their level of service and commitment to the well being of animals! 5 stars just doesn’t seem like it does these guys justice I’d give them so many more if I could!!!
