Abigail Lincoln, DVM
Abigail was born and raised right here in Anytown and spent her formative years caring for her animal companions, including dogs, cats, sheep, and horses. She graduated from University of Brilliance Veterinary School in 1999, and returned to Anytown, bringing her expertise back to her hometown animal friends. She joined the staff of ABC Animal Hospital that same year and specialized in both domestic pets and equine medicine.
Dr. Lincoln has found an additional interest in holistic veterinary medicine, and has obtained certifications in both animal chiropractic and acupuncture. Whether you have an arthritic dog or an athletic horse that needs relief from chronic pain, Dr. Lincoln is here to help!
When not at the clinic, the Lincoln family – Abigail, husband Martin, and daughter Jane – spend time biking, kayaking, and picnicking in Anytown’s great parks. Their animal family includes a black and white collie, four dwarf rabbits, and Jane’s 4-H performance horse.
Marty Washington, Registered Veterinary Technician
Marty grew up in neighboring Center City and attended Anytown College, initially studying to be a dental technician. He soon discovered his true calling and transferred to the Anytown Veterinary Technician program. Marty graduated with his certification in 2005. He worked at the Pet Emergency Center for three years, developing his skills and learning about veterinary emergency procedures. In 2009, Marty joined the team of ABC Animal Hospital.
Together with his wife Georgette, Marty is a leader for the Anytown Animal Lovers 4-H Club. In addition, he teaches classes in dog obedience training for ABC Animal Hospital canine clients. Marty and Georgette Washington are expecting their first child this fall – stay tuned for updates!
Bennie Franklin, Office Manager
Bennie has been with ABC Animal Hospital since they opened their doors in 1987. She will tell you how she came to the clinic with an injured stray pup she found limping in her barnyard, and left with a new career!
Bennie is especially helpful in calming pets as they enter the clinic for the first time – she also keeps treats for pets and their owners underneath the reception desk. Bennie now lives in town, just around the corner from the clinic. You will see her walking to work with her dog, Lightning, on days when the weather cooperates – be sure to wave to them as you pass by.
