Dr. Allison Walker is a veterinarian at Lawrence Animal Hospital, joining our team in March 2015. She received a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science from Cook College at Rutgers University and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences in Southern California.
After graduation, she completed an intensive rotating internship at Garden State Veterinary Specialists which focused heavily on emergency animal care. Now a general practitioner, Dr. Walker takes great pride in preserving the human-animal bond and her philosophy is to treat your pet as if it were her own.
Referred to as the 'Little Dog Savior' by her colleagues, Dr. Walker has rescued numerous canines from a tough life on the streets. For some strange reason, these lucky pooches were usually small in stature. Dr. Walker cherishes her little Pomeranian Penny who rules the menagerie at her house with an iron paw. She has a total of three dogs (one is missing a leg) and two cats (one is missing a tail). Dr. Walker enjoys horror/science fiction films, is an avid reader, and loves all things Hawaiian.
