The new location welcomes veterinarians who are experts in their field bringing years of experience, expertise, and compassion to focus on achieving the best possible patient outcomes. The local team is led by Dr. Kristin Hebert-Fisher, Medical Director, and Kayla Edwards, Hospital Director.

The specialty team includes Drs. Kenneth Arceneaux, Cody Doyle, Kristen Fulham, Nicholle Jenkins, David Kergosien, Elizabeth Kergosien, Stephen Lemarie, Jessica Lin Blache, Sarah Lyles, Julie Ann Smith, Shannon Stroup, Jorge Vila, and Jill Yates.
