    Laurel Thomas, DVM

    Dr. Laurel Thomas is a graduate of Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. In veterinary school, she developed interests in dentistry, nutrition, and behavior. She also volunteered at Native American Reservations to provide veterinary care for underserved populations and advocated for animal welfare to lawmakers in Washington, D.C. Her passion for animal behavior led her to become a Fear Free Certified Professional, learning skills to decrease the stress of veterinary visits for pets and make medicine more enjoyable for the whole family.

    “My favorite part of veterinary medicine is seeing the relationship between a pet and owner. It’s a privilege to witness that friendship. I love sharing my knowledge with owners so that we are able to prolong their companionship.”

    Dr. Laurel is excited to be back in her hometown of Kansas City. She enjoys exploring dog parks with her spunky dachshund, Gustav, riding horses, traveling, visiting museums, and eating Indian food.
