Laurel Logas, DVM
Chief of Staff, Medical Director, and Co-owner
Dr. Laurel Logas always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. "When I was in grade school neighbors would bring baby or injured wildlife to our house. My mother, sisters and I would care for them until they could be released."
Dr. Logas graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary. She worked in three practices before buying one in Winona, MN in 1992. In 2011 she and her husband, Jeff, decided to move to the Sunshine State and bought Bradenton Small Animal Hospital. They changed the name from containing the word "animal" to Bradenton Veterinary Hospital to better reflect pets' status as family members.
Dr. Laurel modernized the practice adding computers, digital x-rays, dental digital x-rays, anesthesia monitoring equipment, ultrasound and other technologies. In 2015 she moved the practice into its current and larger facility. To make cats feel more comfortable, it has separate dog and cat waiting rooms, exam rooms, and hospital wards. Today BVH is a certified "Cat Friendly Practice."
She has advanced training in both soft tissue surgery and orthopedic surgery as well as dentistry. She also loves wellness visits, connecting with clients, and developing long-lasting relationships with clients.
Dr. Logas lives on a small horse farm with her husband, Jeff; her horse, Stella; their two cats, Franklin and Elanor; and their dog Ruby.
Dr. Laurel enjoys riding dressage, playing with her pets, hiking, exercising, dining out, traveling, and reading. Dr. Logas has trained her cat, Elanor, to play fetch.
