Dr. Laura Boehler


Laura Boehler, DVM


Dr. Laura Boehler graduated from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and went on to complete a one-year internship in small animal medicine, surgery, and emergency at a specialty practice in West Los Angeles.

After her internship, Laura heard the call of the wild and moved to South Florida to work at Save the Chimps, the world’s largest chimpanzee sanctuary, where she provided veterinary care for over 250 chimpanzees rescued from roadside zoos, the illegal pet trade, and biomedical research. Laura then returned to Southern California and spent over a year in general practice at an exotic and small animal hospital in Orange County.

Laura is an advocate for the protection of abused wildlife and during vet school spent a summer in the Sichuan province of China volunteering in the veterinary hospital at an Asiatic black bear rescue center that specializes in rehabilitation of endangered moon bears rescued from bile farms. She enjoys the challenges of working in the emergency setting and on a variety of species and is thrilled to have joined the ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital emergency team where she gets to work with specialists to provide the best care for her patients.

In her spare time, she can be found fostering an occasional needy rabbit, making edible gardens for her Russian Tortoise, and climbing rocks in Idyllwild, Joshua Tree, Yosemite, and Tuolumne Meadows.
