Veterinary degree at Townsville. Lauren has a keen interest in medicine and has quickly become a popular member of our team. Lauren will always pay attention to detail and you will always get a naturally caring and compassionate vet who can add to that a very good knowledge of veterinary medicine.

compassionate care as our goals.
