Park View History: Dr. E. E. Ruebush – Veterinary Surgeon

Ruebush is pictured here in April of 1937 after he had removed a record gallstone from Flip, a black and white collie.

It’s difficult to envision it now, but 3622 Georgia Avenue was once the office of Dr. Ephraim Edgar Ruebush, a successful veterinary surgeon. He opened his new and modern hospital for small animals on Georgia Avenue in early January 1925. He received local notoriety when he saved a $10,000 show dog in 1935 and successfully treated dogs being poisoned in the Shepherd Park neighborhood in 1936.

Dr. Ruebush operated his animal hospital on Georgia Avenue until his death on October 26, 1941.
