MEET THE STAFF
Dr. Carolyn Love
I am a 1986 graduate of Texas
A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. My passion is Chinese medicine
to include Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. I also enjoy nutritional medicine,
soft tissue surgery, and internal western medicine for dogs, cats, birds,
and small exotic animals.
I opened Love Pet Hospital in 1994. My mission continues: to provide
high-quality veterinary care with the same kindness and compassion in
which we would treat our own pets and friends.
I am a member of the following organizations:
* AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association)
* TVMA (Texas Veterinary Medical Association)
* CAVMA (Capital Area Veterinary Medical Association)
* AAV (Association of Avian Vets)
* IVAS (International Veterinary Acupuncture Society)
* AVCA (American Veterinary Chiropractic Association)
My five kids include: 2 Labs (rescues from the pound); Arjuna and Shanti,
1 Abby cat named Ra, and 2 Eclectus Parrots, Rama and Sita.
I am keenly aware of the human-animal companion bond. Most of my clients
treat their pets as their own children. You will see by reading the
short biographies below, that myself and my staff feel the same way.
I have completed the certification course for Animal Chiropractic. The
course was located in Dallas at Parker Chiropractic, which is one of
three accredited Animal Chiropractic schools in the country. The course
took six months to complete. The Animal Chiropractic course is open
only to graduate Veterinarians and Chiropractors. Chiropractic works
well on its own or in combination with Acupuncture.
We honor that bond, and treat our patients with the gentle kindness
Dr. Geoffrey Wisbrock, DVM
worked at Love Pet Hospital since graduating from vet school in 1998.
Though I didn't grow up in Austin, I am now proud to call it home. I
married in 2005 and am enjoying married life. I still have my 2 cats,
plus my wife's cat and our geriatric Doberman, Taz. I like to run, but
have trouble finding the time to do it. I hope to see you at LPH.

a native Austinite, living in the country SE of town with my four fur-face
kiddos. I began working at an Austin vet clinic in my teens; but youth
brought out a job-hopping inclination & I spent several years in
various office positions. In the mid 80s my love for animals kicked
back in and I began working at a local boarding kennel where I learned
and earned my way from pooper-scooper to office manager over the next
Then I moved from Austin to Rosenberg for a few years and worked as
a veterinary technician/receptionist at a Katy veterinary clinic. While
there, I earned certifications in several pet care courses. In 2000,
I moved back to Austin and was re-hired as office manager at the kennel
that I had left. I also began taking some veterinary technician courses
offered by ACC, but real life intervened and I had to quit both that
job and ACC.
After several years of not working outside the home, I applied for this
receptionist job and was thrilled when I was hired into this wonderful
family of "LOVE"!
