At Elkwood, caring for your pets is their passion By Anita L. Sherman

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

The building that houses this group of veterinarians isn’t that large but the work done on the inside by its team of doctors and veterinary technicians outweighs its physical size. This June Elkwood Animal Hospital will celebrate its two-year anniversary at its current location on James Madison Highway. Serving the communities of Culpeper and Fauquier, they are located close to Elkwood, Remington, and Brandy Station. In the business of caring for animals for several decades, Dr. Lisa Gibson knew early on when she was in middle school that she wanted to become a veterinarian. All those dogs, cats, horses, and chickens that occupied their acreage were close to her hand and heart. Starting with Compassion Animal Hospital in 1994, clients from this area were happy when she and her husband Don, who handles the business/finance end, decided to open a location in Elkwood. ➤ See Animal, Page 5
