Lauren Foster, DVM


Dr. Lauren Foster has been working as a veterinarian for more than 8 years but has always had a passion for animals. She began her career in high school, working with her family vet at the age of 16.
From clinical practice to academic research, Dr. Foster has a wealth of veterinary medicine experience. While she primarily treats cats and dogs, she also has deep expertise in exotic and wildlife medicine and surgery. Additionally, she is the consulting DVM for Rogers Wildlife Center in Hutchins, Texas, a bird-only rehab center. Spending time with the Rogers team and its inhabitants feeds her soul.
Dr. Foster has three degrees from Texas A&M. She completed her undergraduate degree in Animal Science with honors in 2005; obtained her Masters in Veterinary Medical Sciences in 2009; and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), graduating cum laude in 2015. Dr. Foster grew up in the country just outside of Poetry, Texas, where her parents still reside.
Building long-lasting relationships with clients and their pets is what she finds most rewarding about being a veterinarian.
