Temple Veterinary Hospital Medical and Surgical Center is a full service animal clinic and hospital, which provides care spanning from routine services to emergency veterinary cases. The lead veterinarian at this state of the art facility is Dr. Gary L. Gosney, who is a graduate of the Texas A & M School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Gosney has been in practice in Temple for 44 years, and specializes in difficult diagnostic cases as well as all types of orthopedic and general surgeries. Temple Veterinary Hospital is also fortunate to have Dr. Stephanie Cabral, DVM, who recently joined us full-time and provides excellent veterinary care to our clients.

At TVH, we provide routine care, preventive care, diagnostic and surgical care. We believe in open communication with our clients and are receptive to discussing any concerns you may have. Nutrition and health maintenance are top priorities for us. We keep the most up to date facilities to provide the best care for your pets in a clean, hygienic setting. This includes comprehensive exam rooms, laboratory testing, x-ray testing, a state of the art surgical suite, inpatient beds, and ICU beds. We offer grooming services by well-trained grooming technicians, and boarding options so that you know your pets will be well taken care of while you're away.

Top quality animal food (such as Hills Science Diet) as well as pharmaceuticals are available at our facility, where we can discuss the best nutrition and care for your pet.

In addition to providing first rate care, our clinic is comfortable, kid-friendly, and an overall calm environment so you and your pet can relax in the waiting room while you wait to meet your own TVH veterinarian. There are numerous resources provided for learning about how to care for your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. Gosney did ACL surgery on both legs of our yellow lab, Savannah. The surgeries were performed about 5 months apart, the first one about 7 years ago. She is now 11 years old and is going strong. She still loves catching her frisbee and is a happy girl. We know without the success of these surgeries we would not have her today. Thank you Dr. Gosney."
    Becky V.
  • "My Wife and I brought our toy Yorkshire Terrier puppy, Biddies, to Dr. Gosney when she was 16 weeks old. He diagnosed her with luxating rear patellas and recommended bilateral corrective surgery to avoid her suffering from arthritis and mobility issues later in life. She was never subject to confinement and recovered remarkably fast. It was the best decision we have ever made for Biddies as she is now two years old and runs like a gazelle, terrorizing every squirrel in our yard. Thank you Dr. Gosney and staff!"
