Description

When we established our mission and goals for Care Animal Hospital we went back to the basics... caring! What motivates us is quite simple and our mission probably obvious. As we believe, it is one thing for someone to say something and quite another to actually follow through and do.

“Caring for pets… and people too! That’s our promise.”

That is really all there is to it! It’s a family approach and we want your family to be at home with our family. We hope that every time you visit Care Animal Hospital of Libertyville your experience will be one you will want to share with your family and friends. We believe that our Team can provide exceptional service not only to your pet, but to you as well.

Lisa Whetstone, DVM, Associate Veterinarian



Dr. Whetstone returns to the Libertyville/Vernon Hills/Mundelein area after a six-year �detour� that included Village Veterinary Clinic in Grayslake and March Animal Hospital in Arlington Heights. Prior to that she practiced at [VCA] Hawthorn Animal Hospital in Vernon Hills for 19 years and is THRILLED to be back in �home territory�!! Lisa was born and raised in Peoria, IL before �escaping� to Champaign-Urbana, where she spent 7 years at U of I� the first three studying Microbiology and the next four earning her DVM, Class of 1981. She met her husband of 30+ years, Don, in C-U where they worked together at the Round Barn Restaurant. Lisa�s daughters, Kristin, 25, and Alyssa, 22, are her pride-and-joys and, fortunately, live within half an hour of home, so their family ties remain very close� and FUN!! With the girls out of the house, the remaining �dependents� at the Whetstone home include a Wirehaired Dachshund named Liberty Belle (�Libby�, who Lisa delivered by C-section on September 2, 2011� JUST before 9/11), a joyful 3 legged hound mix called Trixie, a Chihuahua, Dolce, who actually belongs to Alyssa (but possession is 95% of the law!!!) and Rodman, an aged calico kitty. Outside of practice, Lisa enjoys relaxing with Don and the dogs (and any friends that they can snag!) at their lake house in Wisconsin, house remodeling/decorating/problem-solving, traveling, and, most of all now, spending great quality time with Kristin and Alyssa.
