Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin Celebrates Over Three Decades of Providing Emergency Veterinary Services

Austin, Texas – Since 1985, Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin has been providing emergency and critical care veterinary services to pet owners in Austin and the surrounding areas. Both the north and south hospitals are locally owned and operated by a board certified veterinarian.  EAHNWA feels that their 30 years of success stems from the in-house training program for their veterinary nursing staff, their state of the art facilities and a commitment to practice the highest quality urgent and critical care medicine at all times. Because of this, many of their team’s dedicated staff members have worked at the hospital for over a decade, providing experience and quality emergency care to area pets.

Emergency Pet Services Austin

With two locations in North and South Austin, the veterinary hospital provides a range of around-the-clock emergency and critical care services. The north hospital was established in 1985 by a group of veterinarians who recognized the need for a fully-staffed vet facility to provide emergency and critical care services after hours. Dr. Scott Johnson, a board certified Criticalist, purchased the hospital in 1990. The South location was opened in 1995 inside the Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital. In 2014, the north hospital welcomed Stacy Simmonds, DVM,DACVECC to their team and expanded their services to include an extended stay critical care center for pets needing intensive care support.

“I am honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of Emergency Animal Hospital of Northwest Austin for more than 25 years,” says Scott Johnson, DVM, DACVECC. “Quite a few of our team members have also been with the hospital for many years; 25 have been here over five years.  It’s our years of combined experience that makes us stand out”.

The staff consists of licensed veterinarians, technicians and other professional staff members who provide a variety of diagnostic and critical care services including ultrasound, radiology, endoscopy, monitoring, oxygen therapy, transfusion therapy, in-house lab testing, critical care monitoring and soft tissue emergency surgery.

Experience with emergency and critical care veterinary medicine has been a hallmark for Dr. Johnson’s two hospitals. Dr. Johnson, Dr. Floyd, Dr. Tawney, L. Ludden and W. Stratton have each been employees for an impressive 20 years.  Dr. Burns, Dr. DeRuyck, Dr. Kleiman, and Dr. Rae have been practicing for over 15 years at EAHNWA. The veterinary technician staff has five members reaching their 15 year anniversaries and ten staff members employed between 5 and 10 years. 

“Pet owners trust us with their pets during critical moments,” Dr. Johnson states. “Our practice owes its longevity and success to the perseverance, compassion, and dedication of our staff members who have helped us grow since the hospital first opened 30 years ago.  We look forward to working with central Texas pet owners and veterinarians for many years to come”
