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.
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.
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.
An effective golf swing features several moving parts working in one smooth motion: a controlled backswing, a still head, a well-timed release of the wrists and turning of the hips. At Tomball Golf, golfers can hone their swings with the help of golf instructors and swing-analysis technology at an outdoor driving range with covered hitting bays. The studio's launch monitor lets golfers partake in a driving-range session?aided by dazzling graphics and advanced ball-flight-tracking sensors?without making themselves susceptible to rainstorms or the airplane surveillance of rival golfers. Tomball Golf's staff of instructors also offer lessons for golfers of all ages and abilities, making use of the facility's outdoor swing-tracking devices and putting green as well as an outdoor short-game area.
With a full line of clubs from major brands including Taylor Made, Mizuno, Cobra, and Nike, Tomball Golf furnishes upgrades for players with aging wedges or drivers that requested to be melted down and used to build space shuttles. The facility's club-fitting technology ensures that golfers are getting the most out of their equipment by matching their swing and body type with their ideal club set.
Leash-free dogs frolic as they race and tussle with other canines in Fondren 5 Star Pet Resort's dog park. The fenced, shady yard hosts dogsof all sizes and shapes, so long as they pass a behavioral test, provide proof of up-to-date vaccinations, and can prove they haven't left any hate letters for the mailman. As dogs run about, their owners get to interact with professional dog trainers, who provide tips and advice on how to improve a furry friend's behavior or get a pet to do tricks.
As night falls, staffers move overnight pets into their spacious accommodations, providing dogs with private enclosures, cats with condos, and every animal with a complementary meal of Precise Pet Food. While it's fun to spend time with so many dogs, the resort's owner says her favorite part is watching them leave happy and healthy.

Dogs bound across the grass chasing myriad toys, tongues hanging to the side. Their human guardian for the day tosses another toy into the air, and the pack of dogs changes direction. This is a regular scene at Lone Star Pet Lodges, where two acres of land provide plenty of space, both indoors and out, for dogs to play. They're supervised by experienced staff members, who have been Outstanding Pet Care Level One certified. Overnight guests bunk down in the suite area, designed to look like a small town in a theme park, complete with fire hydrant and barbershop quartet selling funnel cakes. Cats relax in a separate area, and owners can schedule grooming to keep their dogs clean.
