Laura, Veterinary Assistant. Laura came to My Best Friend Veterinary Center in January of 2008, having had a passion for animals her entire life. She seems to always be watching Animal Planet or the Discovery Channel to satisfy her desire to continue learning. After purchasing her pug she began to discover the desperate need for adoption of homeless mixed breeds in the animal shelters. Over the years she has added six such dogs and a cat to her home. Her current five pets enjoy their home in Ferguson with Laura and her longtime partner Denise (our pet stylist).
