Dr. Carter Loftin
He enjoys many aspects of veterinary medicine but some of his favorites include Dermatology, Internal Medicine, Preventative Medicine, Shelter Medicine, and Dentistry.
When he isn’t working, Dr. Loftin loves spending time outdoors with his lovely wife, Melissa, and their three handsome dogs, Blue, Maverick, and Tank. As a two-time graduate of the university, Dr. Loftin is a very passionate LSU sports fan and loves spending his Saturdays in Tiger Stadium. He is also an avid soccer fan and follows both local and European soccer leagues very closely.
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. She graduated from LSU in 2017 with a degree in animal science with a concentration in technology. Currently, she is enjoying her time at the clinic and plans to stay with her Bocage family as long as possible! She has one cat, Kit, and four dogs, Rock, Benelli, Hazel, and Ranger.
Vanessa was born and raised in Denham Springs. She has always had a deeply rooted love and compassion for animals and decided to make it a career. She is a mother to two beautiful girls, Capri and Naomi, and two fur babies, Blaze and Sadie. Vanessa has 10 years of experience being a vet tech. She is very excited to care for any animal that comes into the clinic, but her “favorite” patients are the older babies!
Stacy grew up on a small farm with horses, cows, pigs, chickens, and of course, dogs and cats. She started working at her first vet clinic in 1997. She loves getting to know the clients and the patients and is constantly amazed by the love that animals can give even when they are not feeling well. At home, she has Amos, a 14-year-old pitty, Tilly, a 2-year-old Pomeranian, Hubert, Ignatius, and Herman, the cats, and 34 chickens with their rooster Grits.
