Meet the Doctors
A native of Austin Texas, Dr. Kathryn Gibson is a General Practitioner and the owner of Comal Pet Hospital. Dr. Gibson credits her parents with having encouraged her to follow her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. Now that she is a veterinarian, she says that all of the hard work is made worthwhile by the pleasure she derives in helping clients ensure their pets lead long and healthy lives.
After graduating high school in Austin, Dr. Gibson entered Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2000. During her undergraduate studies, Dr. Gibson was a member of the college’s women’s basketball team and the Delta Delta Delta social sorority. In 2003, Dr. Gibson enrolled in Texas A& M University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. Her area of particular professional interest is dentistry and she is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Texas Veterinary Medical Association.
Dr. Gibson and her husband David are the proud parents of two daughters. Their animal family consists of two Rhodesian Ridgebacks (April and Ragnar) and 4 cats (Ike, Peanut, Froyo and Princess Kate). Her interests include traveling, reading, enjoying the outdoors, and playing basketball.
Dr. Barrera was born and raised along the Southern California coast. Like many her age, she’s wanted to work with animals since the fourth grade. She ventured back East for her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences at Cornell University in 2007, then returned to California to earn her Veterinary degree from UC Davis in 2011, with an emphasis on large animal medicine. After one year in Manitoba, Canada, working cow-calf operations, she returned home to California to practice small/companion animal medicine, until she moved to the great state of Texas. Dr. Barrera loves traveling, is very involved with her local church, and enjoys spending her time with her husband, three children, Labrador retriever “Penny”, and two cats “Reggie” and “Marlo”.
