Richard Clive, DVM

Gabriel Ferrer, DVM

Gabriel Ferrer, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Gabriel Ferrer is originally from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. It was there that he developed a passion for animals at a very young age. Because there is no veterinary school in Puerto Rico, he left his Caribbean Island to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinarian.

Dr. Ferrer graduated from Louisiana State University with an undergraduate degree in animal science. Then he graduated from Michigan State University with a Doctor in Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. After finishing veterinary school, Dr. Ferrer decided to get more experience in the veterinary field and completed a one-year medical and rotating surgical internship at The Ohio State University. During his internship year, he became very interested in veterinary dermatology and came to Houston to do a specialized one-year dermatology internship at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists. He loved Houston so much that he decided to stay in this fantastic city.

When Dr. Ferrer is not at Midtown Veterinary Hospital, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Rosa, and their two rescue dogs named Luna Sofia and Jimmy Changa. Also, he enjoys running, playing volleyball, or just enjoying everything the great city of Houston has to offer.

Catherine Lang, DVM

Catherine Lang, DVM

Veterinarian

Originally from Austin, Dr. Catherine Lang has loved making her home in Houston. Dr. Lang earned her veterinary medicine degree from Texas A&M University, graduating magna cum laude as a Phi Zeta honors club member. She previously graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science from Texas A&M University. While pursuing her studies, Dr. Lang was involved in multiple organizations, including serving as president of Green Vets Society, vice president of Imaging and Dentistry Club, and an officer in Delta Delta Delta fraternity.

Rounding out her education at Texas A&M, Dr. Lang spent time studying veterinary medicine abroad at the University of Padua in Italy and through an externship at a hospital that specializes in orthopedic surgery in Faxe, Denmark. These experiences gave her a unique and global perspective on her vocation.

The learning doesn’t stop after veterinary school. Dr. Lang loves attending continuing education events to stay up-to-date with advances in veterinary medicine while far exceeding the state and AAHA required CE minimums each year.

In her spare time, Dr. Lang loves spending time with her friends, family, and her talkative Siamese mix, Vincent Vega. During the fall, she loves watching Fightin’ Texas Aggie football, preferably at Kyle Field. You might see her trying new workout classes around the Montrose area, spending time outside on a sunny day, or planning her next trip abroad!

My name is Thomas, and I am the front desk manager at Midtown Veterinary Hospital. I have held this position since 2014. I am an eight-year-old Boston Terrier who enjoys the finer things in life. This includes napping, playing chase, more napping, and eating carrots. You can usually find me under the front desk or running around the clinic looking for treats to eat. When I’m not hard at work, you can find me with my mom on her many adventures or at home with my sister, Jasmine.

Abbott & Costello, Eugene, Blanche, and Deserey

Abbott & Costello, Eugene, Blanche, and Deserey

Here at Midtown Veterinary Hospital, we have a few fish that have become part of our family. They live in the built-in aquarium. You can see them as soon as you walk up to our second floor. They love to greet people (especially when they’re hungry)!

Abbott & Costello: These two usually stick together, as they get along very well. The only thing they like to argue about is who’s going to swim first.

Eugene: You can usually find him at the top of the aquarium, waiting to be fed. He’s always the first to get food!

Blanche: Blanche loves to hang out with Eugene. She thinks she’s an angelfish too!

Deserey: She likes to hang out in weird places! You can find her on the glass, on the underside of the branch, or hiding below!
