Years of Experience
Providing Veterinary Services for Over Eight Decades

The Animal Clinic

At The Animal Clinic, we’re not just another veterinary practice. We’re your Galveston family, dedicated to nurturing the unique bond you share with your furry friend. Since 1936, we’ve served the island with exceptional care delivered in a warm, relaxed, and home-like setting.

We can see the beach from our building and believe that this allows us to represent Galveston in the most appropriate way, in a historic house right on the beach. We work closely with the Galveston Island Humane Society and pride ourselves in the community service we provide by helping animals in need. We treat dogs and cats, as well as exotics and small farm animals kept as pets. We emphasize disease prevention, offer on-site surgery and dental work, ultrasound, digital radiography, boarding and grooming. We prefer appointments but also take walk ins and emergencies during our open hours. To us your pet always comes first.

Galveston's Beachside Cat Clinic

The Cat Clinic

We offer a separate cat-only clinic right next door to our main building, where cats can receive the specialized treatment, they deserve. We offer specialized care for feline companions alongside comprehensive services like on-site surgery, dental work, ultrasound, and digital radiography.

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!!!
