Dr. Jane P. Milan
Owner, Lead Veterinarian
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, 27, Matt, 21 and Megan, 17.  I’ve been very blessed in my profession and feel the same dedication towards quality small animal medicine and surgery, that I did 32 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, horseback riding, traveling and gardening.  I am active in volunteer activities in Spring Branch and I am very appreciative that I get to do what I love.
Dr. Margaret C. Wise
Associate Veterinarian
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 owners about their new puppy or kitten and helping that special "senior" pet to live a better life during their "golden" years. In 2012, I welcomed the birth of my son Dylan and I’m currently learning the new skill of motherhood. At home I enjoy the animal companionship of my two dogs, Roxie and Reggae, and my cat, Dottie. I also enjoy my equine friends and currently train and ride English dressage (between sugar cubes and carrots of course!). My husband and I compete our lab Reggae in hunt and field trials. Reggae is the proud holder of his hunting retriever champion, master hunter, and upland hunter titles. 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 and beauty 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 my 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, needlepointing, and working out.

Support Team

Maggie was a stray that we rescued from our roof.  After staying with us for 2 weeks she decided to move in.  Her primary duties include supervising the reception area and greeting clients.  She keeps in shape by doing wind sprints down the hall, lifting furry toy mice, and fluffing her gorgeous tail.

John Milan
Management Team Member
I have been with the practice since 1990 and am married to Dr. Milan. I am a multi-talented part of the team as I am in charge of what everyone else doesn't want to do _ accounting and maintenance of the facility. I graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries, but have changed my primary profession to aviation. I am corporate jet pilot and am currently flying Falcon jets.  My interests include keeping up with the kids and their activities, camping, fishing, and boating.

“A tribute to Sophie the Senior Supervisor”

Senior Supervisor
How do you say goodbye to the cat who has touched so many lives?  Sophie has been running this clinic for almost 18 years.  She left us in November of 2007.  Her many jobs included greeting clients, supervising doctor phone calls, running staff meetings and keeping us in line.  From the heart – good bye Sophie.  We miss you everyday.  Your dainty little paw prints will be on our hearts forever.
