Dr. Jamie Laity
Dr. Laity knew from a very early age that she wanted to be a veterinarian. In her lifetime, she has been privileged to share her heart with 9 cats, 6 dogs, 3 horses and 1 quail!
Dr. Laity grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and after high school, moved to Lexington, KY to pursue her passion for horses. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Kentucky (GO BIG BLUE!) and then promptly moved to Athens, Georgia to earn her DVM at UGA. While at UGA, she found her love for small animal practice and decided to pursue a career as a general practitioner.
As a veterinarian, Dr. Laity spends much of her time focusing on preventative medicine – helping your pet live its best life. She also enjoys surgery, dentistry, and practice management. Her biggest sense of satisfaction comes from interacting with clients and making a positive difference in their lives and those of the animals they love. Dr. Laity is Fear-Free Certified.
Dr. Laity’s fur family is always growing! She initially came to Charlotte with two cats. In the last four years, her family has grown to include two cats (Bridget Jones and Fitz Herbert,) three dogs (Koda, Barley, and Layla) and two horses (Daenerys and Drogon)!
Between work and her own pets, Dr. Laity finds time to learn new hobbies and take on as many DIY projects as she can handle! She enjoys traveling and loves to experience different parts of the world. She has found a new interest in landscaping and trying her hand at water sports on Lake Norman. Her guilty pleasure is all things chocolate!
