Rose-Rich Veterinary Clinic expanded its pet-care services with the opening of its 10,000-square-foot facility in 2010. Cat condos built into a bay window, separate checkup, surgery, and treatment rooms, an isolation ward, and eight themed luxury dog suites are among the new amenities at the clinic, which first started serving the community’s furry friends nearly 50 years ago. The facility also makes room for six veterinarians and an animal-care team that keeps boarded pets fed, exercised, and up-to-date on global news.
For all that’s changed and improved with the recent expansion, much has stayed the same. Dr. Charles McDonald, who founded the practice back in 1964, is still a part of the medical team—now he specializes in large-animal care—and Dr. Tucker Robinson, who joined Dr. McDonald in 1966 as a young Texas A&M grad, is still there, too, looking after the smaller patients.
At Silverlake Animal Hospital, beloved dogs and cats get the attention they deserve. Anchored by hospital owner Dr. Terri Stone, the four-veterinarian team works to keep tails wagging with preventative care as well as medical and surgical services. Dr. Stone earned the AAHA Excellence in Small Animal Surgery award, making her the first non-hamster recipient since the award's inception. There are even a few unexpected treatments, like acupuncture and laser therapy. Boarding services are also available, and an array of optional grooming services can make sure they come home freshly bathed.
When fluffy friends aren't feeling their best, the experienced team at River Oaks Animal Hospital can help diagnose and cure their underlying medical issues. Three veterinarians and five veterinary technicians are available to assess all of the animals that come through their doors, taking the time to fully listen to patient concerns and get to know each pet individually. They can perform routine preventative medical care, dental check-ups and cleanings, x-rays, wellness screenings, prescribe medication, and perform a wide range of surgeries. The hospital also offers full boarding services to keep pets comfortable and safe while owners go out of town.
