Lauren Bennett


Lauren grew up on a lifestyle property in Upper Moutere. Her love for animals was strong and she declared her wish to be a vet at 7 years of age. Lauren graduated with her Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree at Massey in 2010. Following graduation, Lauren moved to Australia and worked in small animal practices in Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney.

After 12 years away, Lauren is excited to be back in beautiful Nelson. She enjoys helping owners to make informed choices about their pet’s health and providing high standards of care throughout the different pet life stages.

Lauren has a Jack Russell called Hippo – this is short for Hippocampus (a region of the brain), but she is only called by her full name if in trouble… and a rescue cat called Doris. Outside of work, Lauren is interested in growing veggies, cycling on her ebike and walking with Hippo up in the hills.
