Lauren Aldinger, VMD, Associate Veterinarian

VMD, University of Pennsylvania


Dr. Aldinger had a very "sweet" upbringing in the heart of Hershey Pa.  She always wanted to be a veterinarian, leading her to complete an animal bioscience major at Penn State University followed by completing her veterinary degree at the University of Pennsylvania.  Following graduation, Dr. Aldinger completed a small animal internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Cherry Hill NJ.  She is also passionate about international veterinary medicine and agriculture, which has led her to adventures across the world in Europe, China, Nepal and closer to home here on the Native American Reservations in the southwest.  Dr. Aldinger loves flat-faced kitties and shares her home with 2 Persians named Teddy and Yoshi, a mutt named Zuni (an adorable stray from the Zuni Native American Reservation), and her husband, also a veterinarian.  Dr. Aldinger also loves pocket pets and reptiles and enjoys seeing them as her patients!

Why I do what I do? I love being a veterinarian because it gives me an opportunity to meaningfully contribute to the lives of both people and animals by helping pets stay healthy.  Plus, animals are just plain funny and hilarious to be around!
