Dr. Lauren Mack


Dr. Lauren Mack moved to Kansas for the opportunity to own her own veterinary practice and to work in a tight-knit rural community as a general practitioner. She earned her doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University after receiving her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Maine. Dr. Mack grew up in northern Connecticut and developed a love for animals through years of horseback riding. Dr. Mack enjoys working with her team at the Animal Hospital and the mix of large and small animal cases that she gets to see every day.

When Dr. Mack’s not in surgery, pregnancy testing cows, or talking with clients, she can probably be found spending time her fiance (Josh), dog (Bear), or cat (Minnow). She also hopes to find some time to enjoy some of her old hobbies, including photography and horseback riding.
