Doctors and Staff


Your four-legged friend in the best hands.

Dr. Doug Elledge   A native of Asheville, Dr. Elledge received his Bachelor of Science in Zoology from North Carolina State University in 1980, and his DVM from Auburn University in 1984. After working for two years in a farm and companion animal practice in Georgia, he returned to Asheville and established Redwood Animal Hospital in 1986. When not seeing his furry patients Dr. Elledge enjoys hiking, fishing, and guitar. He and his wife Holly have two sons and assorted pets.
Dr. Keith Reason   Dr. Reason was born in  Chicago but spent his childhood growing up in Wilkesboro, NC.  He received a Bachelor of Science from Mars Hill College in 1994. After working in a medical laboratory for 2 years he applied to veterinary school at NC State and several other colleges. He was accepted into the veterinary program at UCD not in California but in Dublin Ireland. Having several relatives living in Dublin and a sister in Switzerland it seemed to be a perfect fit. Completing his MVB in Ireland he returned to the states and sat the boards and the DVM equivalency exams in 2003. After working at several local clinics in the area he joined our staff in 2011.  In his spare time, Dr. Reason enjoys skeet shooting(poorly), fishing (also poorly), reading sci-fi novels, and spending time with his wife Christy, and his two Children Ciara and Kaden. His pets include 2 dogs, 4 cats, and a goat.

Cary Gagliano, Registered Veterinary Technician   Cary is a native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. His first career was nursing, and he received his BSN from Southern Mississippi University in 1992. After several years his interests turned more toward veterinary medicine, and he returned to school at Mississippi State, receiving his veterinary technology degree in 2005. Following the cleanup of Hurricane Katrina in the late summer of that year, he moved to Asheville and joined our staff. Cary is an avid road cyclist, spending most of his free time exploring the back roads of western NC. He lives with his Bichon mix, Hattie.
