Lake Olympia Animal Hospital recently opened its “dream clinic”, a state-of-the-art wellness / treatment facility for those “other” family members. An impressive building with lots of parking, Lake Olympia Animal Hospital is dedicated to comfort, care, and safety of the pets entrusted to it.
With six veterinarians and an auxiliary staff of 25, pets are compassionately and knowledgeably treated with as little stress as possible for the pampered pets. Love of animals is evident throughout, from the reception and separate waiting areas ( dogs to the left and cats to the right ) to the exam / treatment rooms.
Lake Olympia Animal Hospital was opened on March 15, 1985 by owners Dr. Michael Jacob and Dr. Terry Dobson, graduates of Texas A & M Veterinary School, on FM1092 where the Southern Maid Donuts is now. In 1993, they moved into their new 3603 Glenn Lakes location in Quail Valley. In 2001 Dr. Glenda Wall, another Aggie, joined the practice and became the third partner in 2006. In 2007, the trio purchased land in Riverstone and began planning a new facility.
Meanwhile Dr. Heather Remark, University of Florida, Dr. Adrianne Brode, and Dr. Mary McCaine, both Texas Aggies, also joined the practice. With six veterinarians the hospital is fully equipped for regular treatment, preventive care, and emergency care. In addition Dr. Brode is CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner) and Dr. McCaine is ABVP (Board certified in feline medicine). The new hospital (located at 20413 S. University, Missouri City) was completed in early July and opened its doors July 11, 2011.
An interesting aspect of surgery is removing various objects swallowed by “hungry” pets. Some things removed include socks, rubber duckie, lingerie, Isle of Capri coin, leather gloves, tennis and other kinds of ball, needle and thread, and a corn cob!
Lake Olympia Animal Hospital has not only the general features of many animal clinics (boarding, general medicine / wellness care, vaccinations, in house laboratory, radiology, grooming, and prescription diets) but also dentistry, endoscopy and ultrasound, surgery, rehabilitation, pain management, and stem cell therapy.
It is all a caring pet owner could ask for. Take time to go by and take a tour. If you don’t have a pet, you will want one by the time you finish the tour!
