Michelle E. Culbert, DVM

Dr. Michelle Culbert has cared for dogs, cats, sea turtles, dolphins, manatees, crocodiles and even coati (members of the raccoon family). Her passion for helping pets and their owners runs so deep that she contributed to a TV station’s “Ask The Pet Expert” segment while working in emergency veterinary medicine in Richmond, Va.

Dr. Culbert, a native of Richmond, specializes in small-animal emergency care. She’s a graduate of Virginia Tech, and when she’s not cheering for her Hokies, she loves live music, hiking, reading – and, of course, animals of all sizes and species. “”Becoming a veterinarian was my childhood dream,” she says. “Today, I put that passion towards providing excellent medical care for our furry friends.”
