Dr. Laurie Putnam was born in New York City and grew up in White Plains, NY. She graduated from Binghamton University with a Bachelor of Science in 1992. After two years in a graduate program at the University of Rhode Island in Aquaculture, she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University in 1998. Attending annual Veterinary conferences in Orlando and visits to Sarasota led her to love this area, which she moved to in 1999. She has practiced in the Sarasota area ever since both as a full time and part time associate and most recently as Veterinarian and Medical Director at Suncoast Humane Society in Englewood. Since 2004, she has worked with Dr. Lantry and the late Dr. Nick as a relief Vet. Dr. Putnam spends her free time with her family and two cats.
