We have expanded since then from a humble 1.5-doctor clinic to a fast-paced, walk-in only hospital with six fantastic veterinarians. Although we see more patients than we did in the 50’s, our commitment has remained the same: our clients and their beloved, furry family members always come first.
As we grew throughout the years, our facility did too! We are proud of our newly constructed hospital – finished in 2010 with 5,400 square feet.

Long Drive Dog and Cat Hospital was first founded in the 1950’s. It was one of the first Veterinary Clinic’s in Houston, Texas. In the 1970’s it had grown to a 3 Doctor practice. Dr. Slatko owned Long Drive until 1996 when he sold to Dr. John Shelby. In 2010, Long Drive completed their brand new 5400 square foot facility. It was a large improvement upon their previous 1200 square foot facility. The new facility had a enlarged surgery suite, expanded dental area, and a dedicated x-ray room with digital developer. They also expanded their in-house laboratory with some improved Idexx laboratory equipment.
Dr Shelby has since partnered with Blue River Petcare group as of August 2020. This partnership has brought on it's first ever Hospital Administrator with a PASSION for team development, staff engagement, doctor collaboration and mentorship all around. We are now a 6 doctor hospital and growing!
Our hospital is has a very unique role in the Houston area. We are a general practice with walk-in visits only. This gives us the ability to capture all well pet visits and preventative diagnostics, as well as sick, injured or urgent needs without the immense cost of Emergency Me...dicine visits. We try to give our clients a place to go for that education and potential referral as needed for all of their pet's healthcare needs.
