Meet Our Team
Norma Cruz, DVM
Dr. Cruz is a graduate of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. She is a native Texan and spent her childhood and high school years in the south Texas town of Weslaco. Dr. Cruz attended Texas A&M for her undergraduate studies, earning a degree in Biomedical Science in 1997. She attended veterinary school at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine immediately thereafter and graduated with honors in 2001.
After graduation, Dr. Cruz accepted an associate position at Ashford Veterinary Hospital, a busy, multi-doctor small animal practice in Houston, Texas. She remained there until 2005 when she left to pursue practice ownership. Dr. Cruz opened the doors to the Pet Medical Center of Katy on March 7th, 2005, and has been practicing as the owner and sole veterinarian since its inception.
Dr. Cruz’s passion for animals has been constant throughout her life, having made the decision to pursue veterinary medicine at the tender age of four. She and her husband, Philip, currently have two cats - Puma and Douglas. When not practicing veterinary medicine or tending to her own furry children, Dr. Cruz enjoys working out, dancing, and reading.
“My number one priority is patient care. I try to treat each pet the way I would want my own furry one cared for, and that has been the cornerstone of my practice. I strive to offer the highest level of care, whether it is using my knowledge and experience, or that of my esteemed colleagues in their specialties. The patient’s well being and comfort are what matter at the end of the day.”
Marsha Anderson, DVM
Dr. Anderson was born and raised in south Georgia. She received her undergraduate degree at the University of Georgia. Immediately after graduating with a BSA degree, she had possibly the most interesting job of her life for a year at Yerkes Primate Research Center Field Station in Lawrenceville, GA where she worked with several species of monkeys and great apes. She then had the sense to move to Texas, obtain her Texas residency and attend Texas A & M University where she received her DVM degree in 1987. Shortly before graduating she did an externship at the Dallas Zoo for a few months working with zebras, tigers, okapis, etc. Dr. Anderson originally began practicing small and exotic animal medicine in Arlington, TX then moved to Houston in 1990. She came to Houston to practice at Spring Branch Veterinary Clinic which at that time was a large 9 doctor, 7 days a week practice and she gained a great deal of experience during her time there. Since then she has worked at some 2 and 3 doctor practices in Houston and has had a house call practice that was originally based in the Big Bend region of Texas. She came to work at Pet Medical Center of Katy just over 10 years ago as a contract veterinarian. Having known and worked with Dr. Cruz for several years previously at another clinic, she appreciated Dr. Cruz’s commitment to practicing good, ethical, up to date quality medicine and that working at Pet Medical Center of Katy would be a good match.
Outside of work, Dr. Anderson enjoys many activities and hobbies including hiking, white water rafting, gardening, reading, movies, cooking and crafting. She is presently owned by a “few” cats and a ring-necked parakeet. She recently lost the love of her pet life, an African Grey Parrot named Richelieu, who had been her companion for 36 years (yes, 36 years!).
