About Vet

Susan’s love for animals is apparent in her 12 years of collegiate coursework. Initially, Susan planned to impact animals by studying their genomes to discover disease-causing variants, but she couldn’t imagine her life without a daily dose of animals and decided to leave the lab with a Master’s degree in Integrative Genetics and Genomics upon acceptance to LSU’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Susan’s dream job was to own a mobile wellness practice for small animals, allowing her to make a positive impact on the pet-loving community. Her dream came true and she opened Vet on the Geaux!

Susan lives on a small ranch with 6 dogs, 17 cats, a box turtle, a bearded dragon, 11 chickens, and a horse. She rescued all of her animals except the chickens, who she raised from birth. She loves senior animals and regularly fosters the oldest small dogs from shelters in her area. Medically, Susan prefers wellness visits and management of chronic diseases, as well as nutrition, behavior, allergies, and dermatology.

In the future, Susan hopes to open a rescue facility for senior pets, pets with disabilities, and pets with chronic diseases. She loves the "underdog" and is passionate about making sure every pet has access to appropriate healthcare.
