dr-lauren2-250x300We wanted to introduce the newest member of our team, Dr. Lauren Shaughnessy. She will be doing surgeries in the morning on Thursdays and Fridays, as well as seeing patients in the afternoon. She will also have some Saturday hours, and would love to get to know our clients!

Dr. Lauren Shaughnessy was raised in Delaware and moved to Midlothian in 1995. She received her BS in Animal and Poultry Science with honors from Virginia Tech and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Shaughnessy has a special interest in behavior, nutrition, multimodal pain management, internal medicine and soft tissue surgery. Endoscopy and acupuncture are areas she will be receiving additional education in to better serve her patients in the future.

Dr. Shaughnessy has a Great Dane who loves to visit the dog park and three wonderful cats who help complete her family. Her free time is devoted to hiking in the mountains, traveling, visiting historical sites, museums, concerts and comedy clubs.

We are so happy to have Dr. Shaughnessy join our team and know that you and your pets will enjoy working with her!
