Meet Our Team
Dr. Kathleen Clements
I am a native of Nederland and graduate of Nederland High School. I began working in veterinary clinics locally at the age of 16. After high school, I earned my BS in Biomedical Science and MS degree in Poultry Science from Texas A&M University. I attended veterinary school at Ross University on the beautiful island of St. Kitts, then completed my final clinical year at the University of Florida. After graduating veterinary school in 2005, I worked for two years as a small animal practitioner on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. I returned to the Caribbean and spent six years teaching anatomy, as well as exotic animal medicine and husbandry at my alma mater, Ross University. While at Ross, I served on the veterinary school admissions committee and academic review board. I was involved in a number of research projects including working with the St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network and the Shore Bird Monitoring Group, and have numerous publications in scientific journals. I returned to Texas in 2014, and have since been doing relief, part-time and full-time work in a variety of animal hospitals in Jasper, Orange, Winnie, Baytown and the Houston area. I began working at the Animal Hospital of Mid County in April of 2017, and plan to make this my permanent home. I have two children, three cats, and two dogs including a retired racing Greyhound. When we are not working, or involved in sports with the children, you can find us relaxing at home in our swimming pool. At work I enjoy soft tissue surgery, dermatology, and nutrition. I look forward to meeting and treating your fur babies.

I am a Beaumont native, and Westbrook High graduate. I also studied at the Vet Tech Institute of Houston where I further expanded my knowledge and passion for animals. I have one fur baby of my own, a very spoiled yorkie-poo, Bentley. I found a home working at the Animal Hospital in 2011. I have come to love the people as well as working in a great atmosphere with other who share the same passion as I do. While working here I have become known as the cat whisperer. When I am not working you can bet on me enjoying a good laugh with my friends and family.
I started working at the Animal Hospital in November 2016. I have been a vet tech for 12 years. I have loved all kinds of animals starting at a young age. Growing up we raised shelties.

I have 5 wonderful dogs which are all rescues. Rango – lab/heeler mix, Brewster – mastiff mix, Bruiser – pitbull, Klaus – great dane mix and Rayne-Bull Mastiff/Pitt Mix. If I am not at work, I am at the lake or the beach, spending time with my pups and family.
