Dr. Janielle Vergne, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Louisiana State University


Dr. Janielle Vergne was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She received a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico, following her dream of becoming a Veterinarian. Her degree in Veterinary Medicine came from Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) in 2002. She is happily married and mother to two wonderful young boys. Her family does not end there though! She has three darling pooches at home, "Harley", "Waldo", and "Pancho". And a very shy cat that likes to stay out of their way!

"Being a Veterinarian was always my dream since I was a little girl. There was never a 'plan B'. I remember growing up in Puerto Rico, a small island overpopulated with stray animals, and wanting to rescue, take care of, love, and improve the life of every single one of them. My parents raised me in a home full of all kinds of pets and I even experienced many of their births. This taught me compassion, love, and respect for all kinds of life. I am thankful to my parents for these experiences - they showed me how relief of animal suffering and providing them with a good life was the one thing that would give my own life meaning."
