Dr. Adams

Dr. Adams is an animal person through and through. From a very young age it was clear that animals were her passion, especially horses, dogs, and cats. Over the years many dog and cat fosters have gone through her home and her family became accustom to never knowing what she would bring through the door.

Dr. Adams attended Kennesaw State University in their honors program for her undergraduate degree, which is actually in Psychology. She then attended the University of Georgia for veterinary school and earned her DVM in May of 2021. Dr. Adams enjoys preventative medicine, talking all about puppy and kitten raising, training, and helping people and their pets through the sometimes difficult moments that come along with loving these special animals. Dr. Adams loves both dogs and cats, but has a special spot in her heart for Border Collies, as they are her breed.

Dr. Adams has 4 dogs, Zara, Magic, Rise, and Theory as well as a cat named Benson (who really thinks he’s a dog, too). In her free time you can usually find Dr. Adams with her dogs and husband outside hiking, kayaking, or training and competing in various dog sports such as agility, frisbee, dock diving and rally.

Veterinary Assistants


Veterinary Assistant
Laurel’s passion is truly helping those in need. She absolutely loves all animals, but especially the brachycephalic breeds such as Boxers, Frenchie’s and Bulldogs. Laurel has been a veterinary assistant since 2020 and continues to advance her education and skills in this field. She has a special interest in urgent care appointments and sick visits where she can help someone feel better.

Outside of work you can find her spending time with her two Boxers, Jolene and Delilah. She also likes to hone her baking skills, travel and spend time with family when she can.


Veterinary Assistant
Zabrina is known as the “treat lady” here at Etowah Veterinary Hospital because she loves seeing the pets happy and comfortable while they are here receiving care. Her favorite appointments to see are preventative care because she can ensure the pet has a great experience and is as calm as possible.

Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Zabrina is bilingual speaking both fluent Spanish and English. She moved to Atlanta a couple years ago to pursue higher education and to get experience in the veterinary field with final goals of becoming a small animal general practice veterinarian.

When Zabrina is not working you can find her at the gym working out, spending time with her family, dog Jake, and Bearded Dragon Mushu. She is always down to try new restaurants and explore all that the metro Atlanta area has to offer.


Veterinary Technician Assistant
Bailey loves all animals and even has a special interest in exotics. She is always running around behind the scenes making sure the hospital is well stocked, clean, and everyone has what they need. She’s a comforting presence when pets are nervous and does all she can to ensure their experience with us is as good as possible.

At home, Bailey has quite the zoo of her own with her small mixed breed dog, Ellie, a number of cats, rats, a pig, birds, and more. Bailey is still in school so spare time isn’t really a thing for her, but when she gets the chance she enjoys spending time with her husband and playing (winning) board games.
