Lauren M. Javernick


Hagyard Field Care

Dr. Lauren Javernick is originally from Colorado, where she attended Colorado State University for her undergraduate and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.  Upon completion of her veterinary program in 2007, she joined Hagyard Equine Medical Institute as a field service veterinarian.  For 6 years following her internship, she traveled between Lexington, Kentucky, Saratoga, New York, and Matamata, New Zealand working various busy breeding and racing seasons.  The traveling helped hone her skills as a general practitioner and allowed for a varied experience working with different practitioners.

In 2012, she began pursuing interest in complementary treatments including Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and animal chiropractic. She’s certified in acupuncture, Chinese herbals, and animal chiropractic. She views the use of these different therapies as complementary to a complete and thorough western medical treatment and diagnostic plan.
