Dr Laura Schram
Veterinarian & Practice Owner
Developing a love for animals at a young age Laura has always had too many pets to count. Throughout high school she volunteered as a wildlife carer, rescuing animals such as koalas and kangaroos. Studying at Melbourne university Laura has worked in clinics in Sunshine, Pt Cook and Geelong before settling in at Vet 2 Pet. She prefers the mobile nature of the work as she gets to meet people and see pets in their home environment. She feels this gives her an edge in treating many common conditions, such as skin disease, where environment is a factor.
Laura has a particular interest in working with wildlife and reptiles . She still works with wildlife parks from time to time where she treats a range of animals including goannas, crocodiles, cammels, wombats and kangaroos.
Dr Bridget McCuskerBVSc/BSc (Vet) Hons Bridget graduated from Sydney University in 2013 with honours in BSc(Vet), doing a project in the genetics of behaviour.

Bridget worked in small animal practice for 3 1/2 years before starting with Lara Vet2Pet in 2017 and has a special interest in small animal reproduction and pathology. She is also the proud owner of quite a few Shetland sheepdogs including Lana, Toby, Honey and Po, who she trains in agility and obedience when she has free time.

Beth studied for her certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing at the Box Hill Institute of Technology and has been working as a nurse ever since. She one day hopes to upgrade to a hobby farm in the Lara area where her collection of fury friends can expand.
