Dr. Laura Hartman
Dr. Hartman is an associate veterinarian at our practice. She spent her first year working in Porter’s Lake and has since joined CAH to further develop her diagnostic and surgical skills. Born and raised in Dartmouth, NS, she found herself initially following her passion for travel and ended up working for a tour operator in Toronto, Ontario. It didn’t take her long to start thinking that something was missing. Realizing she has always loved animals growing up, and many of her travel destinations were chosen to specifically see various animals, she decided to pursue veterinary medicine. Dr. Hartman attended Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), where she graduated in 2019. After graduation, she made her way back to the Atlantic Ocean and is happy to be back home! Dr. Hartman loves not only getting to work with and helping animals but also create strong relationships with her clients. It’s the best of both worlds! She handles each pet with care and respect as if they were part of her family as well. She has a wide list of special interests, but a few are internal medicine, feline medicine, neurology and cardiology. When not at the clinic, Dr. Hartman enjoys relaxing with her partner Jeff and their three cats Lily, Whisper and Mr. Jim Business (for any Bob’s burgers fans). He is most commonly referred to as just ‘Sir.’ You can often find them kayaking on the lake or playing pickleball with friends.
