Culpeper Times • March 23-29, 2017 ➤ Animal, from Page 4 “This is a good location for us,” said Gibson noting that they are a country practice that can offer basic veterinary medical and surgical services for preventive and wellness care. However, if more advanced care is necessary including orthopedic surgical services they can do that as well. They can also provide cold laser therapy, ultrasound and oral surgery. Bringing a smile to her face, Dr. Gibson is proud of the fact that their daughter Julia, who graduated from Virginia Tech in 2014, made the decision to join the practice in May of 2015. After graduating with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, she had worked at an animal practice in West Virginia but has been very happy to do what she loves closer to home. Beyond dogs and cats, Dr. Julia Gibson will travel to area farms to treat ailing horses, goats, sheep and pigs. “If you are dealing with a larger animal, it’s simply easier to go there,” said the younger Gibson.

Each month a different aspect of animal health care is emphasized like learning about Lyme Disease or good dental care. Dr. Lisa Gibson says that they see a lot of animals that are overweight and stressed the problems and challenges that animals face if weight is a factor. She laughs. “I know...we just love them so much and they are part of our families and it’s natural to want to give them treats or snacks from the table.” “We want to keep your animals well,” stressed Gibson, “so we try to educate and make folks more aware about preventative care.” Being part of the community they serve is important to both.

April is Parasite Prevention Month

At Elkwood Animal Hospital, they recommend that every pet have a fecal checked for intestinal parasites yearly. One major reason for this is that intestinal parasites can harm your pets by decreasing their ability to absorb nutrients, causing vomiting or diarrhea, or even damaging their intestines. Flea prevention is also very important, both to prevent flea infestations and tapeworm infections. acupuncture. House calls are not a problem. “We care very much about our animals,” said Dr. Lisa Gibson, “we will bring our care to your home when possible.” Since theirs is a family business, acting and operating like family is in their DNA. “I like to think that we are the other family doctor,” says Dr. Lisa Gibson, “you have your doctor and we’re the doctor for your pets.” They welcome new patients and are eager to get to know your animals and you.
