Compassion Animal Hospital was established by Dr. Lisa Gibson in May of 1991.  We provide veterinary care for dogs, cats, and pocket pets. Through our sister hospital, Catlett Animal Hospital, large animal calls are available as well!

Our goal is to provide excellent care to our patients and excellent service to our clients.  On-site digital radiography, in house laboratory testing, ultrasound, and surgical lasers assist us in performing high-quality diagnostic and surgical procedures. Check out our services page for more information on what we offer!

House calls are another important part of our practice – we care that you and your pets have access to comfortable veterinary care and are happy to make house calls when possible for vaccinations, basic bloodwork, and euthanasia.

We look forward to meeting you and your furry family members!

APRIL 2017-Parasite Prevention Month!

April is parasite prevention month! This month we are trying to raise awareness of the danger that parasites are to not only your pet but your family. Some of the parasites dogs and cats have in their bodies can be passed to humans. This is especially an issue with children who are not always good about washing their hands and older adults who have more compromised immune systems. We at Elkwood Animal Hospital are offering 10% of fecal exams, 10% of heartworm testing, and special deals (some BOGO) on flea and tick, heartworm and gutworm preventatives. These monthly preventatives are essential to protecting your pet and your family from internal parasites that can cause major health issues and, in extreme cases, death.

May 2017- 10% off Wellness Bloodwork Month!

May is wellness bloodwork month. This is such an important service we offer. Wellness bloodwork will tell you about physiologic and organ issues before your pet shows signs of sickness. We have ways to detect liver, kidney, thyroid, and other diseases through abnormal blood values before your pet is showing signs that he or she is sick. With this information, we can make diet changes or start medications to help support your pet’s body. So, your pet can live happy and healthy for much longer.

Also, if the blood values are normal, it tells our veterinarians what your pet’s normal or “baseline” blood values are. This is helpful because sometimes individual animals will have “normal values” (within normal ranges on their bloodwork) when they are showing signs of illness, but the referance ranges are averages. With baseline values for bloodwork, our veterinarians can accurately assess your pet’s bloodwork by comparing the baseline values to the values we recieve when your pet is sick. Then, diagnoses can be made and abnormal values can be addressed much sooner.
