Anderson Ridge Vet Hospital
Anderson Ridge Vet Hospital is a comprehensive medical & surgical facility that provides quality and affordable care for your four-legged family members!
Where Pets are Family!
When I lived in College Station, I met Dr. Worrell and instantly knew she did a superb job caring for my dog Fen. When she moved to Anderson Ridge, I decided to follow her to the new practice. Now, my husband and I drive all the way from Houston to see Dr. Worrell and her amazing staff.
My dog Fen is an elderly boxer so she requires quite a bit care. Dr. Worrell always does any incredible job of going above and beyond caring for Fen. She is caring, personable, intelligent, and is certainly worth the 1.5 hour drive!!”
Everyone here was so amazing. They were friendly to me and my pet. They understood how anxious I was. They fixed my pet up quickly and even called later to check on him. Also the prices didn’t put me into debt. I would totally recommend.

Wellness Exams & Vaccinations
Wellness visits are advised once or twice a year depending on the age and condition of your pet. In addition to a comprehensive physical evaluation of your pet at these visits, we also advise which vaccinations are needed and how often. Vaccinations in adult animals are typically required every 1 or 3 years depending on the vaccine.
Parasite prevention is an important component of wellness visits. We can explain in detail the many different preventatives that are available and recommend the best product for your pet’s needs.
Nutrition and appropriate diets are also discussed at wellness visits.
Spays & Neuters
Spaying and neutering your pets is STRONGLY advised.
Spays for female pets and neuters for male pets can be performed typically as early as 12 weeks of age. There are some studies that show a benefit in waiting longer in some breeds of dogs, and this can be determined on individual basis.
Spays and neuters are typically performed as “day procedures”, in which you will drop your pet off at the clinic in the morning and then pick he/she up in the afternoon.
We can accommodate most orthopedic surgeries here at Anderson Ridge Vet Hospital. Orthopedic surgeries that can be performed here include fracture repairs, patella luxation repair, TPLO, amputations, hip dislocation, and more.
Dental disease is extremely common in pets, can be quite debilitating, and can lead to more extensive health issues. We provide deep and thorough dental cleanings that are performed under general anesthesia. At the time of the dental, we evaluate whether there is a need for any extractions and perform them as deemed necessary. If you are unsure if a dental is needed in your pet(s), we are happy to see your pet for a dental exam.
We can provide interstate health certificates for your travel needs. Depending on your destination, issuing health certificates can be a lengthy and involved process. If you are considering traveling with your pet(s), contact us as soon as possible and we can advise you of the necessary steps. Cost depends on destination and certification requirements.
Senior Wellness Testing

We will also initiate a parasite prevention protocol at this time.
