Our Team

Jennifer Jones, DVM, Practice Owner and Veterinarian


Dr. Jones is originally from a small town in central Pennsylvania. In 1994, her passion for Veterinary Medicine took her to Philadelphia, and to the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated in 1999 with a B.A. in Biology, and minors in Chemistry and Psychology. She loved the University of Pennsylvania so much she stayed another 4 years, and graduated with her V.M.D. in 2003. She practiced in both the Mt. Airy and Andorra neighborhoods for 8 years before pursuing her life-long dream to open her own Veterinary clinic, with emphasis on compassionate, courteous, and high quality medical care to pets and the people who love them. She is a member of the AVMA, PVMA, and licensed in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey to practice Veterinary Medicine. She has performed volunteer veterinary services with the Humane society on Native American reservations, and in remote parts of the Peten region of Guatemala.

She shares a farm home with her four aristocratic cats – Kitty Marie, Sunshine, Honeybee, and Tom O’Malley, a feisty Chihuahua named Peachy, and a lovable rescued pitbull named Rubble.

Laura thoroughly enjoys being a veterinarian because it allows her to combine her interests in science and medicine with her love of animals and those who care for them. Laura’s favorite aspects of veterinary medicine are the complexities of internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, preventative medicine, and the human-animal bond. She is also very passionate about promoting adoption and rescue to help those who are in need of the most basic necessity, a loving home.
