VCA Little Animal Hospital

Laurie Parenton, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Louisiana State University

Biography

Dr. Parenton was born in Tampa, Florida and after spending many years away for school, returned to the Sunshine State to be close to her family. While working as a CPA in Tampa, she realized that her true calling was veterinary medicine, focusing on small companion animals. She has one cat, Minou, a German Shepherd mix, Sherman, and an Aussie/Pointer mix puppy named Cooper.

Dr. Parenton enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 year old daughter when she's not here at our hospital!

 

 I love working in the animal field. I meet so many wonderful people everyday and the trust that they have in me and our team is priceless. It puts a smile on my face to see our furry four legged family members dragging their parents behind them, wagging their tail all the way. It’s very rewarding to have a job that doesn’t feel like a job at all!

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
