Born and raised in France, Dr. Laura Tucker brings an international flair to our team of doctors. For the last twenty years she has lived and worked in Colorado, and now considers it her home. She studied biology and chemistry in Denver, and obtained the doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Western University in California in 2008. At Western Dr. Tucker was inducted into the prestigious Phi Zeta veterinary honor society. She lives in Loveland with her husband of 18 years, who is a physician in Greeley. They share their home with their sweet and beautiful rats Fiona and Lilly. Before coming to VCA Fort Collins Animal Hospital, Dr. Tucker worked at VCA All Pets Animal Hospital in Boulder. Dr. Tucker is especially interested in feline medicine and surgery. Her passion, however, is rat medicine and surgery. She will see pocket pets such as guinea pigs as well as good-old canines. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, camping, spending time in the mountains, four-wheel driving, and tending to her new vegetable garden.
