Once you get to know the doctors and staff at Lake Parkway Animal Hospital, you'll understand where our passion for pets and their people comes from.

Dr. Anna Larson
Dr. Anna Larson grew up in Kingwood and started working in the veterinary field when she was just 17 years old. Inspired by Dr. Larry Keese (founder of Lake Parkway Animal Hospital), she attended Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She has been practicing small animal medicine in our community for the past 6 years. She and her husband, Sam, have 4 precious children ages 11 yrs, 9 yrs, 2 yrs, and 9 months. When she is not at work she can be found cheering on her oldest two kiddos as they play in the Huffman youth football and volleyball leagues. Dr. Larson and her family are active members of Second Baptist Church.
Dr. Jim McComas
Dr. Jim McComas’ love for animals began early on his family’s cattle ranch near Albany, Texas. At age six, the local paper quoted him on his dream of becoming a veterinarian. He completed his undergraduate degree as a member of Texas A&M’s Corp of Cadets in 1997 and then graduated from Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. He began his career as a mixed animal veterinarian at Simonton Vet Clinic in Simonton, Texas. In 2003, he and his family transferred to Beaumont where he worked at Wilcox Vet Clinic for six years. His family then had the opportunity to relocate to Bangkok, Thailand where they lived for over three years exploring much of Southeast Asia. Dr. McComas and his wife, Mary Elizabeth, have two daughters, Kendall and Kathryn. They attend Humble Area First Baptist Church. Most weekends his family can be found in or around the water of Lake Houston.
A two-pound ball of calico fluff when she came to Lake Parkway Animal Hospital in April 2005, Spot was one of three kittens rescued along with their mother. Plans were made to place each cat into a loving home. One kitten was adopted along with the mother and another was adopted by one of our technicians. Spot, however, was a different story. She was taken in by a wonderful family, but threw such a tantrum at her new home that she was immediately returned to her beloved Lake Parkway Animal Hospital, where she has maintained residence ever since. Though she doesn't pay rent or her share of the utility bills, she boasts such a large fan club that she now has her own email address in order to keep her in the "Spot-light." You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She has a hard time typing with her finely manicured claws, so her staff (also known as our receptionists) types replies for her. Spot graciously deigns to share her celebrity with these fine ladies, so feel free to email Chris, Ashley, Rebecca, or Heather at the same address.
