Dr. Libby and Dr. Nixon opened Companion Animal Hospital on March 5, 1995. They renovated a split-level house and turned it into a veterinary hospital using a Builder’s Square credit card and sweat equity. At that point, there were no other employees unless you counted their two small children. The hospital was founded on the premise of “caring for pets and their people.” Our first day began hosting a rabies vaccination clinic with all funds donated to the Lancaster County Humane League. With the help of the Middletown Canine Club, we vaccinated over 150 dogs and cats that Saturday. Since that day, we have continued to provide quality veterinary healthcare to the community.
