Oso Creek Animal Hospital
Laurie Crider from Corpus Christi

Shortly after leaving for the night shift at a local hospital, I received a frantic call from my daughter and son informing me that our cat, Mr. Kitty, wasn't breathing right and they were scared he might die. I told them to look up 24 hour emergency clinics for animals. They found this facility and it was close to home. Once there, I was told, they took immediate care and concern of Mr. Kitty and ran several tests and found that he had heart worms. I couldn't believe it!! I didn't think cats got heart worms. The care and compassion Mr. Kitty received was over and beyond what I would have expected. They kept him overnight and put him on a round of antibiotics and steroids. Once home, Mr. Kitty, did well. Dr. Vaughan was prompt in following up, but unfortunately, we played a little phone tag. After Mr. Kitty's steroids were up he again started working a little harder at breathing. I called the hospital and explained that Dr. Vaughan wanted to continue him on his steroids a bit longer, but that we had been playing tag and with Mr. Kitty again working at breathing, I was worried it would become emergent again. Dr. Vaughan was not on that night, a Dr. Higginbotham saw him. She was kind, compassionate and professional as were all the staff there. She pulled Mr. Kitty's file and continued with Dr. Vaughn's recommendations without having to further test Mr. Kitty. Mr. Kitty has been off his steroids for about a month now and is again playing with our other cat and glad to announce putting on weight. I will never be able to express my gratitude as Mr. Kitty is so precious to us. I highly recommend this facility to everyone!!!
