My boyfriend's ex-wife called him in hysterics because, an animal they purchased while together was near death, and it needed immediate care. She couldn't afford to pay for the vet visit and wanted to know if we would be willing to help. We called the Gulf Coast Animal Emergency Hospital on a Sunday afternoon, desperate for help, asking if the boyfriend of the ex-wife brought the pet in, could we pay over the phone with a credit card. Not only did they not have an issue with the "broken" family, shared pet scenario, they told us what the costs would be upfront, brought in a specialist to meet them at the clinic, they kept us apprised of the situation and, the vet even took time to talk to us about what had happened, and how to keep the other animals from getting sick. They happily emailed us a receipt, along with a very personal note sending their condolences, (the animal died on the way in), and they were so super nice during the entire process, it really helped my boyfriend make it through this very emotional situation. These days, it is amazing to find that during such an emotional time, there are still people that take the time to care about the feelings of other people. Not to mention the fact they have extremely reasonable fees that everyone can afford. Nothing worse than having a critically ill animal, than to have to take out a loan to pay for it. If you live in the Houston area, I highly recommend Gulf Coast Animal Emergency Hospital. Reasonable rates, caring and loving people. Doesn't get any better than that.

First of all I would like to say to everyone who is complaining about the strict late policies: Would you be a minute late for a job interview? If you know your house is far from the clinic, leave an extra ten minutes early!!! Do you honestly think its ok to just show up to ANY appointment late? NO. You made an appointment for a certain time, BE THERE ON TIME! If you don't think you're going to make it, CALL THEM AND THEY WILL LET YOU KNOW IF THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEE YOU OR NOT. I have been bringing my pets here since they've opened and I always see angry customers treating the staff at the clinic terribly and so disrespectfully, yet THEY are the ones who arrived to their appointment 10 minutes late. I think the KAAWS clinic is a great clinic and I believe in everything Dr. B and all of its employees stand for. Sure every business may have a mishap every one in a while but I feel like the staff at the clinic all care about customer satisfaction and helping your pet out the best way. It's a very clean and welcoming clinic, I have not once smelled a "bad smell" there before. KAAWS is the only way I am able to have four pets and not break the bank, so THANK YOU to all the doctors and staff working there. You all should not have to put up with some of the rude and disrespectful people who come through there.
