Dr. Lauren Barry graduated with distinction from the University of Liverpool in 2007. She worked initially in Anesthesiology at the University of Liverpool hospital before transitioning to general practice and then two years in emergency night care. Dr. Barry joined Banfield in late 2011, and has settled into Orange County life with her family. Her passion for preventive care veterinary medicine is evident in the lengths she goes to ensure the best care for her animal patients, and to have owners educated on all the personalized treatment options for their family members. Dr. Barry has recently rescued a lab/pit bull mix named Jenga, and lives with her husband and young son. Her interests outside of work include hiking and yoga.
