Katy Freeway Location Tests the VetScope
We are currently testing an advanced diagnostic scope in one of our hospitals. Pet Vet plans to test this equipment for several months before adding it to all of our hospitals. The VetScope is an instrument that helps the doctor to closely examine the ears and teeth of your pet. With this device, our veterinarian can easily view the eardrum on a large monitor making a diagnosis easier and discomfort for your pet minimal. Additionally, complete dental records can be created for your pet with instant photographs from the VetScope for complete up-to-date medical records.

Tono-Pen Test for Glaucoma
Our hospitals are equipped with a hand-held precision instrument used to measure pressure within the eyes of your pet to test for glaucoma. The test is simple and can be done, in most cases, during a regular office visit. Glaucoma is a disease that causes increased pressure in the eye and can lead to blindness if not detected early.

Ultrasound Technology Comes to Pet Vet
We provide in-house ultrasounds on an as needed basis by a trained sonography technician. Ultrasound technology can help our doctors in diagnosis and treatment in a variety of areas - keeping your pet healthy.



Training means taking the time to teach your pet to respect your leadership and to give him the guidance needed to meet your expectations for his behavior in the home. This involves communicating clearly through training. Training will not only turn your pet into a family companion and a pleasure to have around, but it also may save his life. Curtailing behavioral problems early keeps an owner from growing resentment that may eventually lead to giving up the pet to an uncertain or fatal future. Training can also make your pet respond to your commands in a life threatening situation such as running in front of a vehicle or eating something hazardous. A well trained pet can bring years of satisfying companionship. Ask the Staff at your Pet Vet Hospital for a recommendation regarding training.

Donald L. Ross, D.V.M., M.S., Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Den
Donald L. Ross, D.V.M., M.S., Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Den

Doctor Ross, a native of Huntsville, graduated from Texas A & M University in 1967 with degrees as a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Ross joined the Air Force and was base veterinarian at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio. His primary duty was the care of Air Force guard dogs. Many of these dogs were so powerful that they would damage their teeth which rendered them useless as guard dogs. By close association with human dentists at Lackland, Dr. Ross became interested in the possibilities of veterinary dentistry. He attended the University of Texas Dental School in Houston, graduating in 1972 with a Master of Science degree. He then opened the first veterinary specialty practice in Houston, limiting his practice exclusively to veterinary dentistry. Dr. Ross and Dr. H.M. Mark founded the first Pet Vet hospital on the Katy Freeway at Shepherd in 1976.
