LAS VEGAS, July 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- All About Cats Veterinary Hospital, a full-service veterinary hospital in Las Vegas, NV, recently welcomed a new veterinarian to the team. Dr. Laura Klaassen joins Drs. Terri Koppe, Alissa McCormick and Cathy Berquist in treating and caring for cats throughout the Las Vegas area. Dr. Klaassen is no stranger to the popular animal hospital. "I worked here during my undergrad years," she said. "It's really nice to be back, and I look forward to serving cats and their owners," she added. The practice's other three veterinarians are also excited about their new colleague.
Although Dr. Klaassen was born and raised in Las Vegas, she hasn't stayed put the entire time. When she was a young adult, she headed to the Pacific Northwest to attend Oregon State University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Zoology. From there, she headed to Colorado, where she earned her veterinary degree from Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine this year. A self-professed cat lover, Dr. Klaassen was raised in a family where virtually everyone owned at least one furry feline. The veterinarian owns one cat herself. She rescued Patches years ago, and the cat has traveled with her for all her school years.
Now that she's joined All About Cats Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Klaassen has no intention of resting on her laurels. The ambitious veterinarian plans to become a feline specialist by completing a certification track that is offered by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. The certification allows veterinarians to specialize in species-specific medicine. With this credential under her belt, Dr. Klaassen will bring even more prestige to the veterinary hospital. "There is no question that Dr. Klaassen is passionate about veterinary medicine, and we are thrilled to have such a hard-working professional on our team," said Dr. Koppe.
All About Cats Veterinary Hospital strictly treats cats, so it is a safe haven for them and their owners. Cats enjoy the peaceful setting, which is absent of the typical noise and barking that goes on at regular veterinary practices. The practice offers a wide array of services for cats, including complete wellness care, spaying and neutering, vaccines, dental care and behavioral counseling. Additionally, All About Cats Veterinary Hospital offers cat-only boarding and grooming as well as an on-site pharmacy. Cat food is also available for sale. "We strive to be a one-stop shop for cats and their owners," said Dr. Koppe. She and her colleagues look forward to introducing Dr. Klaassen to local cat owners and their beloved cats.
