Laura Catherine

Office Manager

      Laura Catherine has grown up around Bocage Animal Hospital. As a veterinarian's daughter, compassion for animals has always come as second nature to her. Growing up she always wanted to follow in her dad's footsteps and become a vet. She is currently in her senior year at Louisiana State University. She is pursuing a degree in Animal Science with a concentration in technology and hopes to pursue a career involving large animals. She is highly involved at the equine unit at LSU and is very interested in the research aspect. She has 1 cat, Kit, and 2 dogs, Rock and Benelli. 



    Skylar was raised in New Iberia, Louisiana. Growing up on a small family farm filled with chickens, pigs, and horses started her love and interest for animals at an early age. She graduated from Louisiana State University in December of 2016 with an Animal, Dairy, Poultry Science Bachelor’s degree. She is so happy to work in an environment that cares for and improves the lives of animals. She is a dog mom to 1 boxer named Hagrid!


Veterinary Technician/Kennel Manager

      Stephanie was born and raised in San Diego, California. She started her Vet Tech career at the age of 17 working at her local veterinarian’s office in the kennels. Since that time, she has worked and studied hard to learn all she could until she reached her goal as Head Vet Tech.  She has three children: Sydney, Jordan, and Conor.  Since the time she left San Diego back in 1997, she has lived in a few places here in the south; Baton Rouge, La and the Tupelo, Ms Area. In each place she loved the new and different cultures; she expanded her knowledge and studies to the animals in her area.

      Through the years of her Vet Tech career, Stephanie has worked with exotic animals, large animals, and small animals. She has run her own pitbull rescue where she would rehabilitate the dogs and place them in good homes! She also loves to ride horses. Stephanie started riding when she was 13 years old and enjoyed showing hunter/jumper for several years. But her heart is in rescuing. She currently has two dogs Lew-Lew- a Miniature Pincher and Lola- a Lab/Pit mix that are rescue’s and would have more if she could. Stephanie is enjoying her new life here in Baton Rouge and is looking forward to the future!

Mack was born and raised right here in Baton Rouge. Growing up his family always had a lot of animals. Whether it be their horde of dogs or his grandparents herd of cattle. Being around animals from a young age helped mold his love for animals. While not pursuing a career as a veterinarian, Mack still wishes to help improve the lives of animals by pursuing his masters in animal science. Mack has a dog named Watson who he actually adopted from Bocage!
