Dr Lara Thompson BVSc, BAnimScMgt
I'm a veterinarian at the clinic and graduated from Veterinary Science at The University of Melbourne in 2013. Prior to that, I graduated from Animal Science & Management with Dean's Honours in 2009, in which I completed a thesis on animal behaviour.
Before working here at Dr Paws Lane Cove, I worked on the NSW South Coast where I was able to gain great exposure to emergency medicine and complex surgeries. I then moved back to Sydney to work in a clinic where I was lucky enough to be trained in keyhole surgery and other advanced treatments, such as K-laser therapy for arthritis and wound healing.
I have a strong interest in all kinds of surgery as well as behavioural medicine and training, but mostly I enjoy the satisfaction from helping an animal get through any type of illness or injury.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing water polo, travelling and finding somewhere new to eat each weekend. I have a one-eyed, epileptic Miniature Schnauzer called Floyd and a fluffy ginger cat called Hugh.
