Welcome, Dr. Houser!

Crossroads Pet Hospital is excited to welcome Dr. Erin Houser to our team!


Dr. Houser is an experienced veterinarian who obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Minnesota in 2010. She then did a post-graduate internship at Carolina Veterinary Specialists in North Carolina.

Dr. Houser worked in emergency medicine for a few years, then made the move to South Texas, where she worked in general practice in various locations, including Galveston. She then served as the medical director of a VCA hospital for three years before finding her new home at Crossroads Pet Hospital in 2018.

“My husband and I have plenty of family in Texas, and we wanted to be close to them,” Dr. Houser said. “What I didn’t know is that I’d find a second family in the staff at Crossroads Pet Hospital!”

When Dr. Houser isn’t doing what she loves best – saving pet lives – you’ll still find her working with her hands – crafting, knitting, and sewing. “I also love to sing, and I love anything to do with being outdoors!”

“I’ve wanted to be a vet practically my whole life, since I was five years old,” said Dr. Houser. “There really is nothing I love more than saving the lives of animals.” Dr. Houser particularly enjoys pet dentistry. “Pets can’t tell you when they have a toothache or tooth sensitivity,” she said. “I love having the ability to give pets a pain-free mouth – to find what may be ailing them and make it better.”

Dr. Houser lives with her husband and their three pets: a three-legged Labrador retriever/golden retriever mix, a Japanese Chin, and a cat. If you see her in our hospital, please give her a warm welcome!
