Medical Director

Hello, my name is Crystal Eberly. I graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and I also have a Bachelor's degree from OSU in Animal Nutrition.  I really enjoy implementing nutritional health in all the internal medicine I practice.  I also have a special interest in senior pet medicine and I think you will find that I always have your pet's best interests in mind.  I pride myself and my staff on our dedication to make your pet as happy and healthy as possible during all of your pet's life stages.  Personally, I love being the mother of my four children, Corrynn, Carrigan, Cameron and Conrad, spending time with my husband, Chad, fishing, gardening, and spending time at the lake with my family and friends.

Dr. Lauren Danskin

Hi, my name is Lauren Danskin.  I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Kalamazoo College and I received my veterinary degree from the Ohio State University.  While earning my undergraduate degree, I conducted research with Grevy's zebras and Rothschild giraffes in central Kenya and during veterinary school I spent time at zoos in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio.  Prior to joining the WVH team in 2013, I practiced at equine hospitals in Ocala, Florida and Emmett, Michigan.  I particularly enjoy internal medicine, ophthalmology, theriogenology, and client education.  I also have a special interest in feline care and appreciate the unique challenge of providing a positive atmosphere for your cat.  Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband Erik, our son Leo, two cats Persephone and Rufus, and my horse Rugby.  My other interests include traveling, horseback riding, hiking, movies, and theater.

My name is Barbara Butman and I am delighted to join the excellent team at WVH.  I attended Michigan State University and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Zoology and Animal Husbandry.  I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from MSU in 1979 and have been practicing in the Ann Arbor area for over 30 years.  My many years of experience have given me a unique perspective on all aspects and life phases of my patients.  I believe that accurate diagnosis and successful treatment plans begin with good client communication.  My areas of special interest include soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology, behavior, and internal medicine.  My own animal menagerie includes two Hanoverian horses, three wonderful "mutts", and four felines.  Outside of work I am an avid equestrian and train in dressage.

Hello, my name is Christina Butler and I joined Washtenaw Veterinary Hospital in Spring 2017. I earned my doctor of veterinary medicine degree at Michigan State University, and my undergraduate studies were also at MSU in clinical laboratory sciences. What I enjoy most about veterinary medicine is the opportunity to work together with owners to develop a unique health plan that considers and fulfills the needs of both them and their pets. My other professional interests include internal medicine, neurology, and ophthalmology. When not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and being a proud pet parent to three animals – Rosco the rat terrier, Samoa the guinea pig, and Kiwi the rat. I look forward to meeting and working with all the wonderful patients and clients at WVH!
