Elizabeth Johnson, DVM

Hello, I am happy and excited to join the caring team at Jermantown Animal Hospital. Please know that Dr Metzger’s fine tradition of warm, professional, and personalized care will be continued. My name is Elizabeth Johnson and it has been a lifelong dream to own an exceptional animal hospital and care for my clients and fur babies! Dr. Metzger (Doc) and I have worked together to ensure that the care and service you rely on will continue smoothly.

I grew up in Northern Virginia and attended undergraduate and veterinary school at Virginia Tech. I have been caring for patients in Burke Virginia for the past 16 years. I treat my patients as if they were my own fur babies. I take my time getting to know my patients and am fear free certified which is a new method of handling that helps nervous pets feel more comfortable during veterinary visits. I practice exceptional veterinary medicine, make individualized health care plans, focus on proactive care, and excel with client communication and education. I cannot wait to meet you and your fur baby!

You can count on me, Anne Ricketts (your fabulous practice manager), and your favorite veterinary team at Jermantown Animal Hospital to continue the very best veterinary care. If you would like to send in a picture of your fur baby, we would love to make a collage for the clinic. Pictures, and any questions or comments can be emailed to Info@JermantownAnimalHospital.com or you can call us at 703-273-5055. We are scheduling fall and winter appointments now!

Thank you Doc for this wonderful opportunity. I will take amazing care of Jermantown Animal Hospital and your beloved clients!

Emilio Blanchard

Veterinary Assistant

My name is Emilio Blanchard and I’m a veterinary assistant at JAH, and it’s my pleasure to help care for your patients! I joined the team in December of 2021 and have enjoyed every moment! Currently I work part time as I take the long and arduous journey to becoming a veterinarian. I am enrolled in Northern Virginia Community college and plan to transfer to Virginia Tech in the fall of 2023. There earn my degree in animal science and once obtained, enroll in the Virginia-Maryland college of veterinary medicine.
In my personal life I’ve always loved animals. I’ve grown up in Nova all my life and since I was 7, I’ve lived on a farm full of chickens, horses, goats, dogs, and cats. I also own a hognose snake! So if you have any questions about life on a farm or reptile care I’m open to talking about it!
