  • ANIMAL ER

DESCRIPTION

In Season Two of "Animal ER", one of the largest veterinary hospitals in the country opens up new departments for our cameras, including their Critical Care, Cardiology, Dermatology and Ophthalmology wings.   Gulf Coast Veterinary Hospital in Houston, Texas, continues to provide cutting edge medicine for animals ranging from tigers and primates, to household pets and birds.  This season, procedures include the miraculous recovery of sight, the ability to walk again, and saving animals in critical condition.    But no matter what the technology, Gulf Coast's biggest asset is their staff, and their personal ties to their animal patients.   Lead by doctors Brian Beale, Heidi Hottinger, Carley Giovanella,  Sue Chen, as well as dentist Chanda Miles, and technician Danielle Inman, these 200 plus staffers run what is considered to be the "Mayo Clinic" for animals in the state of Texas.
