Lauren Zepernick

Veterinarian

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.
