LGBTQ owned Urban Animal Veterinary Hospital set to kick-off Pride Week.

New LGBQ Owned Urban Animal Veterinary Hospital Launches In Houston's Heights Neighborhood

We don’t care about what you look like, your gender, whom you choose to love and how you choose to express yourself. We also don’t discriminate on whether you’re intact, spayed or neutered, walk on two legs, four or require assistance.

Mix vibrant colors, a touch of whimsy, a diverse staff, ADA accessibility with the latest equipment and standards in veterinary medicine and throw in the time-honored practice of longer exam times and building a good bedside rapport with clients and you get Urban Animal Veterinary Hospital.

Open seven days a week and conveniently located in the heart of the Height’s community, Urban Animal manages to be trendy while adhering to the old art of maintaining a strong doctor-client-patient relationship; in other words, a veterinary hospital where “everyone knows your name.”

Urban Animal Veterinary Hospital may be among the only veterinary hospitals to have a diversity and ADA statement on its website, stream monthly relevant health topics on its Facebook page and put animal patients at ease with pet-friendly practices while ensuring the comfort of their human companions using guest Wi-Fi, an array of complimentary beverage options, a friendly staff and veterinarian.

The hospital also is one of a handful of that offers isolation facilities with its own entrance and exit keeping healthy and the contagious pets separate. Digital dental X-rays, digital whole-body X-rays read by board certified radiologists are all a part of this modern facility’s offerings. Should your pet experience an emergency crisis, the hospital is well equipped to stabilize, diagnose and in many instances treat your animal companion.

LGBTQ owned and operated, Urban Animal Veterinary Hospital celebrates diversity and offers an environment where everyone should feel welcome. Having faced discrimination herself due to a gender non-conforming appearance, hospital owner and veterinarian Dr. Hilary Granson says, "We don’t care about what you look like, your gender, whom you choose to love and how you choose to express yourself. We don’t discriminate on whether you’re intact, spayed or neutered, walk on two legs, four or require assistance. Urban Animal respects the uniqueness of anyone that comes into our hospital."

The hospital is set to participate in Houston’s Pride celebration as a donor for Pearl Bar’s Pride Eden Party and will be paying homage to the week of Pride with rainbow bandannas for pets and hors d’oeuvres for their human counterparts.
