Hospital DirectorGary Klein, DVM
Dr. Gary Klein graduated from the University Of Illinois College Of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. For the next two years he was an associate at a small animal practice in Illinois. His interest in emergency medicine and surgery was fostered by the fact than an emergency facility to refer after hours calls was not available. This inspired Dr. Klein to move to Houston in 1985 to begin his emergency medicine career. The next four years he practiced emergency medicine and also performed relief work in small animal hospitals. In June 1989 a coveted position became available at Animal Emergency Clinic SE which later became known as VCA Animal Emergency Hospital Southeast. In June 2015 Dr. Klein celebrated 26 years at this practice. In August 2015 Dr. Klein accepted the position of Medical Director. Over the years he has developed a strong interest in soft tissue surgery but also enjoys medicine cases. Dr. Klein is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. He lives with his wife and children in Sugarland. They have 3 daughters and 2 sons. They also share their home with 3 dogs, 2 cats and a tortoise. During his free time, he enjoys taking his family camping in the many state and national parks. Dr. Klein looks forward to continuing to assist pets of clients and referring veterinarians with their health problems from the most mundane to the most challenging medical or surgical cases. He welcomes phone calls from referring veterinarians regarding cases he has seen.
