Featured Case

Meet Max! This 1 year old Catahoula mix came into Urgent Vet The Woodlands for just not feeling well – not acting like he normally does. Believe it or not, this is a very common complaint from pet parents and this is why we’re here. If your pet is sick, it’s our job to help find out why and make them feel better.

The doctor gave Max some some subcutaneous fluids and observed him for a while. Later he went home with some additional medication to help him feel better and orders for extra snuggles from his pet parents.

We asked Max’s parents to be sure to follow-up with vet to make sure Max continues to get back to being his usual self.

Featured Case

Mista came in with a cut — and her pet parents had no idea how it happened. After a careful examination, we repaired the laceration.

She’s shown here in our cozy enclosure designed for comfort and recovery.

Nice to meet you sweet Mista!

At Your Service

Van Clark

Practice Manager

Van’s love of animals began when he was a child, growing up in New Orleans. People in the neighborhood always remember him bringing home animals and insisting on helping them.

Later in life, Van received his Bachelor’s degree at Prairie View A&M University where after graduation, he continued his academic career at Sam Houston State and earned his Master’s Degree.

In total, Van has been in the veterinary field for 15 years. This includes 8 years in emergency medicine along with valuable experience gained in general practice hospitals, animal shelters, specialty animal practices and affordable care facilities.

He is proud to lead the care team at UrgentVet – The Woodlands. His favorite part of his job is watching a pet leave the clinic after being treated by the care team there.

When Van is not at UrgentVet, he can be found enjoying his two other passions – being outdoors and working on cars. Van loves to spend time with his wife, two baby girls, their ball python named Alfonzo, and their two dogs Mac (a Great Dane) and Brick (an American Bully).
