Dr. Laura L. George is the medical director co-owner and lead cat veterinarian of Meadows Cat Hospital. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary medicine and has spent the last 13+ years practicing small animal medicine. Prior to leading our cat hospital, she ran the medical operations of ~30 veterinary hospitals in Ohio and Washington. During this time she trained and mentored doctors in those hospitals through difficult medical cases and complex surgeries. Now focused exclusively on providing feline veterinary services, she has collectively spent the better part of two decades in medicine, cat shelter medicine and feline awareness. Her family includes her fur baby 'Opal' (her 16 year-old cat), rescued bearded dragons ('Skink', 'Aurora', 'Ebony' and Scooter), four dumbo/Rex Rats ('Cookie', 'Dumbo', 'Carmel' and 'Theo'), a bordoodle 'Biji' and her son Sebastian. Dr. George has a strong focus on preventative and internal medicine setting her apart from many area vets.

He graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Ph.D. in Microbiology in 2010 having previously finished bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry and Microbiology. Prior to joining our veterinary practice, he worked in Biotechnology for over 15 years. During that time he was also dedicated to feline health/awareness and has volunteered hundreds of hours (serving as medical team coordinator, assistant and educator) at various feline rescues. He has been involved in numerous public-outreach events & local feline health campaigns. Although felines are his favorite passion project, only his love for bearded dragons rivals it. As your practice manager he works to ensure that your experience at MCH is exemplary and will work with you and within your budget to get your fur baby the best veterinary care and services.
