Jasmine C. Champagne, DVM
"My love for cats started as far back as I have any such memory. I clearly remember taking cat naps as a child and always having a feline friend by my side. The purrs that calmed me in the darkness, the companionship that never let me feel alone- cats were always a part of my life. My favorite part about my job as a feline veterinarian is the minute an owner walks through the door with his/her cat, we have an automatic connection. We appreciate cats for what they are– the mysterious kind of love they offer, the regal stance they flaunt, and the grace with little effort they master."
Dr. Jasmine C. Champagne graduated from LSU School of Veterinary medicine where she was vice president of the student chapter of the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and received top recognition from the AAFP for outstanding senior student in feline medicine and surgery. Her first two years of practice as a veterinarian were at a feline exclusive specialty practice in Ormond Beach, FL.
