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.
The name 610 Pet Lodge is not misleading. The boarding facility, veterinary clinic, and grooming center accommodate pets of all kinds, not just cats and dogs. Seven days a week, the overnight boarding area temporarily houses typical house pets, as well as pigs, parrots, reptiles, and pet logs. For busy dog owners, the staffers keep canines active as they make new furry friends during doggy daycare. All animals must be vaccinated prior to boarding and doggy daycare; however, 610 Pet Lodge?s veterinary clinic staff can administer all necessary vaccinations upon arrival. To help pets find permanent homes, the staff works closely with local rescue organizations to seek out people who are looking to adopt a new pet.
Clear Lake City Veterinary Clinic has been caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, and fish since 1977. Dr. Stephen Elorriaga and a dedicated staff of technicians serve as a one-stop shop for animal health, performing regular medical check ups, dentistry, and even advanced surgery. They boast a vast amount of in-house technology, such as surgical lasers and digital radiology equipment. Not all of their amenities are medically related, though. They also maintain half-acre yards and spacious, air-conditioned kennels where pets can rest and play while owners are finally able to play with those pet toys without interruption.

At Bayou City Veterinary Hospital, two veterinarians tackle pets' ailments with different approaches. Dr. Brenda Flores explores the malady with thorough diagnostic techniques designed to get at the root of illnesses and works hard to ease any associated pain. On the other hand, Dr. Kristy Kyle excels at surgical procedures, especially for cats, and maintaing a tranquil setting for nervous pets. The hospital is AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) accredited and has been dubbed cat friendly by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
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.
