Jacinta Alleman, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Louisiana State University


I was born and raised in South Louisiana in a small town called St. James. I am known to all as “Our Little Cajun.” Ever since grade school, I have dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. When I graduated from high school, I attended undergrad at Louisiana State University and, while working towards my Animal Science Degree, I was accepted into LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation in 1995, I moved to Dallas, Texas. I was employed at two all-feline hospitals for 7 years before joining the team at VCA Sandy Lake Animal Hospital in May 2003.
I have been married for 17 years to a veterinarian classmate, Lon Hays, DVM. I have two 2-legged humans named Abigail Marie and Natalie Mae. I also have three 4-legged animals, “Pearl”, “Mojo”, and “Butta”.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my children and cooking Cajun cuisine. My specialty is Feline Medicine.
