Dr. Cassandra Eakins
Cassandra Eakins, DVM, (aka Dr. Cassie) was born and raised in southwestern Utah, where she received her undergraduate degree in Zoology from Southern Utah University. She went on to receive her DVM as a member of the inaugural class of the Utah State University’s veterinary program in partnership with Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, she moved to The Woodlands, Texas (near Houston) where she practiced at a small animal clinic and worked with several large rescue organizations in that area. When she’s not loving your pets, you can find her outside: jogging, hiking, boating, or camping, or—funnily enough—inside: baking, cooking, reading, or writing. She and her husband, Kyle, have five furry babies (three cats and two dogs), and one adorable human baby.

Dr. Lauren is looking forward to establishing life-long relationships with the patients and clients of Animal Care Daybreak.
