Dr. Lauren Zepernick graduated with honors from the University of Vermont with a degree in Animal Sciences. She attended veterinary school at North Carolina State University, followed by a rotating small animal internship at Cornell University. After completing her internship, she returned to North Carolina where she spent five years working as an emergency veterinarian, eventually becoming the Director of Emergency Medicine during her final year.
Dr. Zepernick moved to the Boston area in 2013 and made the transition to general practice. Being able to spend time with her patients and care for them long-term, she discovered she wanted to do more to help those patients that suffered from arthritis and other chronic diseases.
In 2016, Dr. Zepernick became certified in veterinary acupuncture through Chi
University in Florida. She ran Boston Veterinary Acupuncture for 4 years before joining Parkway Veterinary Hospital.
Outside of work Dr. Zepernick enjoys traveling, reading, live music, and exercising. She also enjoys spending time outdoors with her dogs – all rescue dogs from the south.
