Our Mission...Our Promise


To provide our pet guests the most comfortable and safest place to spend time away from home. By offering excellent care, outstanding service, and some ranch fun, our pet guests will want to visit again and again. Above all we must honor the trust that pet owners place in us to love and care for their pets. 

Dr. Lee Panko purchased Brenham Veterinary Hospital in January 2010 to serve the pet care needs of Brenham and its surrounding communities.  In 2014, Dr. Panko and his wife Michelle saw a need to enhance the level of service and offerings related to pet boarding. With the construction of Barking Ranch Pet Resort, they began to provide overnight boarding for dogs and cats, a doggy daycare program, and spa services.  Our pet community continues to grow leaps and bounds!
