SLVS understands and respects the importance of the bond between you and your companion, and we know how truly special he or she is to you. We are committed not only to excellence in the medical services and care we provide, but also to setting our standards to include the highest level of compassion and integrity as we strive to enhance and extend your pet’s quality of life.
Sugar Land Veterinary Specialists boasts a truly collaborative effort between specialty services and a fully staffed after-hours emergency service under the same roof. This eliminates the need for transferring ill and critical patients out of the hospital when further care, diagnostics, and advanced monitoring are still required. Our team of dedicated and skilled emergency veterinarians and specialists allows every patient immediate access to the hands-on care of an experienced veterinarian at all times.
Our referral-based specialty practices comprise Internal Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, Surgery, Oncology and a Radioiodine (I-131) Treatment Center. Our board-certified specialists in these fields work as a team in conjunction with your family veterinarian to ensure continuity of care and consistency in addressing your pet’s needs. This unified effort allows for consultation between the various doctors within our hospital in order to tailor a specialized treatment plan unique to your loved companion.
Some of the advanced diagnostic capabilities which allow SLVS to provide the most comprehensive care for your pet include digital radiography, color-flow Doppler ultrasound, high-speed multi-slice CT, a complete in-house laboratory, and the addition of on-site 1.5T MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) in Fall 2011. Additionally, our facility includes state-of-the-art surgical suites, two fully-equipped ICUs, and an extensive endoscopic procedure suite. Take a tour here.
Our specialists see patients Monday through Friday, by referral from your family veterinarian, and our emergency practice is available from 6pm to 8am Monday through Thursday, 4pm to 8am Friday and 24 hours a day on weekends and holidays. Our facility is located in the heart of Sugar Land, just minutes from downtown Houston.
Thank you for trusting us to be part of your pet’s healthcare team. We look forward to helping you preserve the unique bond that you and your companion share .
