Lauren E. Shores, DVMDr. Shores grew up primarily in Michigan and Mississippi as a "vet school brat". Her father, Dr. Andy Shores, is currently a veterinary neurosurgeon and neurologist at Mississippi State University. Throughout her childhood, she lived in various college towns including Auburn, AL, East Lansing, MI, and Starkville, MS, where her father was attending a residency, obtaining a degree, or teaching. Growing up in a learning environment and around animals with her father naturally contributed to her career choice. She attended Auburn University to obtain her undergraduate degree in Zoology and then attended the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating with her DVM in 2008. She has been practicing small animal medicine and surgery in the North DFW area ever since.
Always involved in athletics and performing arts, Dr. Shores has been a ballerina, violinist, and softball player. Her interest in the arts has carried over into adulthood, as she has held numerous principal roles in The Nutcracker with The Frisco Ballet and is a professional background vocalist and member of The Fever Band, mainly covering Elvis Presley’s music all over the United States. You may have seen her on stage without even realizing it!
Dr. Shores and her husband Marcus have three dogs and two cats. Devo is a whippet who can sprint to chase a rabbit or squirrel but mainly prefers to stay wrapped up in a blanket 20+ hours a day. Monkey, a Labrador Retriever mix, is a mentally and physically disabled dog to some degree, having been hit by a car at the age of 10 weeks in 2007, causing brain damage. He does just fine, though, walking in circles to the left and loving life. Nellie is a Labrador Retriever/Boxer mix and is absolutely full of energy. Until she recently tore a ligament in her knee, she was widely regarded as indestructible. You'll all be glad to know she is back to playing frisbee! The cats, Prima Ballerina and Mr. Cheese, get along well with the dogs and complete the pack. Show More
