Dr. Jane P. Milan

Owner, Lead Veterinarian

Adoption image

I graduated from University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1983 and opened the hospital in 1985. I grew up in Decatur, Illinois, but headed to Texas the day after graduation to start practicing in Houston. I am the proud mom of 3 kids – Lauren, 30, Matt, 24 and Megan, 20 and grandma to William, 2 and Ralph, 6 months. I’ve been very blessed in my profession and feel the same dedication towards quality small animal medicine and surgery that I did 35 years ago. I am married to John Milan and together we are developing a Texas native wildlife ranch near La Grange. I enjoy ranch management, antiquing, gardening, horseback riding, and travel. I am very appreciative that I get to do what I love.

Dr. Margaret C. Wise

Associate Veterinarian

Adoption image

I am an Aggie vet that earned my DVM from Texas A&M in 2001. I have worked at Wilcrest Animal Hospital for my entire career and can’t imagine practicing anywhere else. I love the family-like qualities of this hospital as well as the high level of medicine that the staff practices. My greatest joy is teaching pet owners about their new puppy or kitten and helping that special “senior” pet live a better life during their “golden” years. In 2012, I welcomed the birth of my son Dylan. I enjoy the animal companionship of my two dogs, Reggae and Blue. My husband and I have enjoyed competing our Labradors in hunt and field trials. Reggae is the proud holder of his hunting retriever champion, master hunter, and upland hunter titles. I also enjoy my equine friends and currently train and ride English dressage. I am a certified scuba diver, and whenever I can find time to spare, you will find me “blowing bubbles” and enjoying the exotic wonders of marine life.

Dr. Lisa Box

Associate Veterinarian

I graduated from The University of Texas in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and from Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005 with a concentration in small animal medicine. Since graduating, I have worked in various hospitals around Houston. I am very excited to finally be practicing in my own neighborhood. I enjoy feline medicine, soft tissue surgery, and wellness medicine. When not at work, I spend time with my husband, Damon, and my three young children, Maddie, Eli, and Owen. I also share my space with two extremely handsome tuxedo cats named “Bert” and “Ernie.” When not driving my kids to and from all their activities, I enjoy reading, needle pointing, and working out.
