Veterinarian in Austin, Texas?

Recommendations for veterinarians in Austin, Texas please? Ideally somewhere I can get an appointment after 5:00pm or on a weekend. Someone who is good at recommending food for a kitty with a sensitive tummy would be great.

I just need a rabies shot and checkup for my indoor cat, who is about 2.5 years old. She does not have any health problems that I know of, though there is a bit of a food issue that I could use some guidance on. Namely, I tried switching her from Iams kitten to adult food (tried two different kinds, Iams adult and Natural Balance) and she ended up puking all over the place so I put her back on the kitten food. This probably makes me a terrible cat owner, but I've kept her on the kitten food for a couple years now, since she seems like she's still doing well on it. I'm nervous about trying something new, for I fear she will puke her guts out again and be miserable.
So, know any good low-cost vets that offer appointments in the evening or on the weekend? We have a moratorium on using vacation hours at work right now, and I can't use my sick time for kitty-related issues. I have heard of a place, I think it's Animal Trustees of Austin or something, where you can go on the weekend and wait to be seen, but I really want a place where I can make an appointment.
I live in Hyde Park near 45th and Guadalupe, so something closer to me rather than farther would be nice.
