Dr. Laurie Walmsley graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed her ECFVG internship at Oklahoma State University. Practicing in Sarasota since 1993, she founded Ashton Animal Clinic & The Pet Resort, a full-service small animal veterinary hospital and pet boarding facility. In 2013, she was the first female recipient of the Florida Veterinary Medical Association Distinguished Service Award for exceptional achievements and contributions to the advancement of veterinary medicine. 

Since 2002, Dr. Walmsley has mentored Buddy’s Feral Cat Program, which has spayed/neutered more than 15,000 feral/free roaming cats, drastically reducing the number of homeless, unwanted kittens. She believes that saving the life of one animal may not change the world, but it
changes the world for that animal.
