Happy Paws Veterinary Services

A complete physical assessment, diagnostics, diagnosis, and appropriate adjunctive treatment provided by your primary veterinarian should always accompany veterinary integrative modalities such as medical acupuncture, photomedicine, and medical massage.

About Dr. Laura Scott

I received my BA in Psychology from Arizona State University in 1993 and my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in 2002.

I have devoted over twenty years to the practice of medicine and surgery, and many of those years have been spent as a hospital owner. At the end of 2019, I sold my general veterinary medicine practice and now focus my care on physical and psycho/emotional comfort, healing, and patient advocacy.

In 2010, I completed the comprehensive 140-hour Veterinary Medical Acupuncture Certification through Colorado State University, now offered through CuraCore.

In 2020, I completed the Roll Model Practitioner certification with TuneUp Fitness in fascial manipulation, and in 2021, I completed the 40-hour CuraCore intensive course in Veterinary Photomedicine. I am currently studying 130 hours of CuraCore Veterinary Botanical Medicine courses.

I live in the Black Forest and hike these trails with my Big Dog, Bodhi, and Big Girl Bonnie. I have a 500-hour Vinyasa teacher training certification with Jason Crandell, and I love reading, caring for my kitties, forever scooping poop for my horses, and climbing at City Rock.
