VCA Countryside Animal Hospital

Marlo Washington, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Tuskegee University


I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. After 4 years of study at Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN, I graduated with a B.S. in Agricultural Sciences. I then attended Tuskegee University in Alabama where I received my DVM degree. I immediately moved to the Houston area where I practiced small animal medicine at a corporate practice for 10 years. After being a stay at home mom for about 18 months, I started working at VCA Countryside.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
