We’re dedicated to your pet’s care.
The veterinarians and care team at Rice Village Animal Hospital works tirelessly to provide compassionate care for your pet.
Dr. Rita Jou
Dr. Jou attended the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts where she obtained both her Masters and Doctoral degrees. She practiced as a small animal veterinarian for several years in Boston prior to her move to Texas in 2018. Dr. Jou’s clinical interests lie in preventative health, nutrition, and behavior.
In her time away from the hospital, she enjoys spending time with her family, which include her husband, two young children, two dogs, and an elderly cat.
She enjoys spending time with her family, most importantly her young daughter Selene. She is so excited to watch her grow! She is also going to school to obtain an Associates Degree in Animal Sciences. Anita has three pets: “Lacy,” a Pitbull Terrier; “Jasmine,” a chocolate Lab mix; and a cat named “Duncan.” In her spare time, she enjoys reading, music, kickboxing and outdoor activities.
Anita says, “I love animals and get satisfaction when helping pets. I like to have the opportunity to make a difference in any way possible!” Here she is pictured with a regular patient “Bella.”
