Our deep love for companion animals drives us to do our very best for every pet and their family. We use Fear Free techniques with every pet to reduce and even eliminate anxiety associated with veterinary visits. Our veterinarians and support staff take tremendous pride in their commitment to bettering the lives of our patients and their people.

Lara was born in California but grew up in Melbourne Australia. Here she started her journey into Veterinary Medicine. She completed a Bachelor of Science and then a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Melbourne. She spent her first two years in general practice in Melbourne, where she fell in love with small animal medicine. Lara then decided to travel to Thailand where she worked as a Veterinarian at an Elephant rescue center. During this time she treated Elephants that suffered from unethical tourism, and worked to help stray cats and dogs with a local rescue. While doing this, she taught North American Veterinary students basic veterinary skills and surgery.
