A bit about Dr. Hamil

Dr. Lauren Hamil grew up in Tallahassee, Florida and attended the University of Florida for her

undergraduate degree. While earning her degree in zoology she worked at the UF College of

Veterinary Medicine, as well as with fruit bats through a local conservancy. During college she

realized her passion for veterinary medicine but also for the outdoors and was an active

member of the UF outdoor recreation club. Her love of animals and the outdoors led her to

Fort Collins, Colorado where she earned her DVM from Colorado State University.


During her first two years of veterinary school, she worked in the CSU Oncology Clinical Trials

Service and did research with the Radiation Oncology Service. As she entered her clinical years

in veterinary school, Dr. Hamil realized her passion for small animal surgery. After earning her

DVM, she moved back to the southeast where she completed a rigorous one-year small animal

rotating internship at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina.


Dr. Hamil then moved back to Fort Collins to begin her residency in small animal orthopedic and

soft tissue surgery. During her residency at CSU, she performed research in wound

management as well as canine laryngeal paralysis, and concurrently completed a master’s

degree. After her residency, she attained board certification as a small animal surgeon and

enjoys all aspects of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, especially minimally invasive surgery.


When she is not at work, Dr. Hamil enjoys hiking and exploring the pacific northwest with her

fiancé. She loves spending time with their two fur-babies, cats Munch and Pickett.
