At Wishbone Pet Care, Inc., our doggy daycare and boarding services have the newest state of the art facilities, which will make all dogs, feel like their own home. Wishbone’s experienced caretakers will provide special care for your dogs of all ages, breeds, and all types of activity levels.
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.
Until dogs evolve the thumbs needed to turn faucets or apply pomade, it’ll be up to their human owners to keep them groomed. To this end, Hot Dog Grooming’s staff welcomes clients into its canine salon with bathing stations that can accommodate dogs up to 130 pounds. The friendly, dog-loving stylists ply their expertise with clippers and shampoo to return fur back to its original sleekness, volume, and puppy-fresh scent. And since no spa would be complete without its matching hotel, the groomers also offer boarding and daycare services, along with a doggie taxi program that picks up and drops off four-legged guests at their homes.
While some pets leap into the car ready for a ride, others turn into shivering balls of anxiety as soon as they leave the house, or they have aches and pains that make it hard for them to travel. After answering many requests for house calls for these pets, longtime veterinarian, Dr. Angela Donaruma put her traveling clinic, Houston Mobile Veterinary Clinic, on the road. In this mobile unit, she and her staff perform a range of services, including blood testing, x-rays, and surgeries to remove swallowed maps to buried bones.
Southern Breeze Equestrian Center is a utopia for horse lovers, where expert instruction turns whinnying tenderfeet into sure-footed saddle-masters. With lessons devised for all ages and experience levels, this full-service facility fills its four riding arenas with enthusiastic forays into horsemanship. Southern Breeze’s 45-minute private lesson ($65), offered Mondays through Saturdays with one of the center's experienced assistant trainers, is tailored to individual levels of equine expertise. First-time riders spend some ground time looking under the hood, using humanpower to harness horsepower before embarking on their first longe-line ride. Experienced straphangers will work on enhancing their skills, mastering the maneuvers of dressage horses or leaping over 20 burning busses.
