We are thrilled to introduce the newest member of the Suffield Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Emilie Laston, who joined our staff on August 1, 2019. She is shown here with Herriot, one of her four black and white kitties, in a photo taken by our resident photographer, vet tech Jen Haire. In addition to the feline foursome, she shares her life with a German Shorthaired Pointer, Henry, who excels in both field work and the show ring.

Dr. Laston grew up in Vermont, graduated from the University of New Hampshire and pursued her veterinary degree at the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada, graduating in 2012. After focusing primarily on large animal medicine in school, Dr. Laston took a job in the small animal field and realized her heart is in pet practice. Prior to joining our staff she worked 5 years in an excellent practice in another part of Connecticut.

In Connecticut it is hard to recruit good veterinarians, much less outstanding ones like Dr. Laston. Thank you to all our patient clients who understood the scheduling nightmare we faced during the 18 months it took to find a perfect replacement for Dr. Griffin O’Connor. For those that miss her, know that Dr. O’Connor is thriving in her new practice located only eight minutes from her home and young children. While the commute was too much, she still insists that she misses her wonderful colleagues and patients here in Suffield.

Since Dr. Laston started last month she has quickly fit in and become a favorite of our clients and of her fellow staff members. While she excels at general veterinary medicine and surgery, Dr. Laston has a special interest in reproduction, dentistry, geriatrics and behavior, and is very talented at reassuring nervous pets and their equally nervous, worried owners.

We are proud to welcome Dr. Emilie Laston to Suffield Veterinary Hospital, and we’re confident you and your pet will love her, too.
