Laura Weatherford, DVM
Veterinarian

Dr. Laura (as she prefers to be called) graduated from UC Davis Veterinary School in 1994 and practiced for the first 3 years in a busy 24 hour hospital. For the next 8 years she worked as a relief vet giving other doctors days off. She joined Tustin Santa Ana Vet Hospital in January 2005. She is active in the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association and is currently in her second 3 year term on the Board of Trustees and will be President of the board in 2018. She attends many continuing education events to keep current on veterinary medicine. Dr. Laura has way to many cats and has recently adopted a Jack Russell – Flyn. Her beloved office fixtures of Chloe (16 1/2 years old) and Sherlock (23 1/4 years old) have both crossed the rainbow bridge. Her favorite past times are reading, travel and photography.

Hospital Cats

Igor

Our Ambassador. Igor came to us when he was 2 weeks old. He had an abscessed eye. Our employees took care of him – taking him home and feeding and treating him until he grew up and got healthy. We had to remove his eye when we neutered him. We couldn’t bear to give him away. He has known no other home. He loves everyone – kids, dogs, cats and all people.

Tarzan

Was dumped at TSAVH as a kitten. When we went to neuter him and find him a home we discovered that he has a hole in his heart. Diagnosed with a Ventricular Septal Defect we didn’t know how long he would live. So we kept him – and he and Igor are best friends!

Scarlet

The first kitten / cat that Static accepted and let share his food / cage in the hospital. She’s sweet and quiet. Not as outgoing as some of the others. Loves her Catnip though! Don’t leave your cat carrier open – she will walk right in and settle down for a nap!

Monty

Was a foster kitten of Dr Laura’s. His owner’s were unable to take him to their new home out of state. Dr Laura took him in again and he has become a fixture on the Front counter. He’s not a lap cat but loves all the love he gets from our clients!

Purrelli

Was brought to TSAVH as a kitten. A client found her in the wheel well of her car. Her name is a play on the Pirelli Tire brand, she is a living testament to microchips though. She somehow got out in September 19th, 2010, we got her back August 4, 2011! Thanks to her microchip! This is one reason why we recommend all pets be microchipped!

Static

Our old Mascot. He was he hospital cat before Dr Laura started working here. He ruled the back. He loved to hunt – the only hospital cat allowed to go outside. He came down with cancer. We did surgery and radiation therapy and chemo. He did well but the cancer won in the end. This pic of him was shortly before we had to say goodbye. Even though he had cancer he still was proud of his hunting skills!

Mocha

She wasn’t not a “real” hospital cat. She actually belonged to Stephanie. She was diagnosed with cancer June 2015. She had surgery to remove it and underwent chemo. Sadly she lost her battle and is missed.
