It is with both great excitement and sadness that we announce the retirement of Dr. Carol Cookingham from Linwood Animal Hospital.
Dr. Cookingham has been an esteemed member of the Linwood Animal Hospital family since 1981.
We'd like to leave you with these words from Dr. Cookingham:
To all my wonderful clients and their beloved pets,
After much deliberation and 39 years since my graduation from veterinary school, I have decided to retire from veterinary practice at the end of 2018.
I have worked at Linwood since 1981. I became a partner and co-owner after a few years of practice and now have served as Co-Chief of Staff since we partnered with VetCor in 2011. The years at Linwood have flown by but it's time for me to pursue new interests and activities that have been postponed far too long!
Thank you all for your trust, loyalty, and friendship over the years. We have celebrated together and we have cried together over our four-legged friends. I am humbled to have served so many generations of families for so many years. We share many special memories and I will miss making more with you!
Please be assured that the Linwood family I have been a part of for so long remains vibrant and strong. We have welcomed new associates eager and excited to help you and your pets. They share the same philosophy, professionalism, and bedside manner that Linwood has practiced since 1948. The doctors and staff at Linwood will continue to provide you and pets with the excellent and personalized loving care that you are accustomed to for many years to come.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family!
Carol Cookingham, DVM
