Meet Dr. Aurore Laprais

DVM, Diplomate ACVD

Dr. Aurore Laprais is originally from France and graduated with her DVM degree from the University of Liege, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Belgium in 2011. She then completed a small animal internship at CHV Pommery, a private practice specialty hospital in Reims, at the heart of the Champagne region of France. Gaining interest in veterinary dermatology, she went on to complete an advanced veterinary dermatology training program at the Nantes and Lyon National Veterinary schools of France (Oniris and VetAgroSup) and obtained her Certificate of Superior Studies (CES) in Veterinary Dermatology in 2013. Dr. Laprais then moved back to her hometown, in the volcanic region of Auvergne, and worked as a general practitioner at Vetodome, Mozac with the veterinarians and team that had taken care of her family pets growing up. Itching to expand her knowledge and specialize, Dr Laprais then took the leap to the USA and completed a 3-year Residency program in Veterinary Dermatology at the North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Raleigh, NC. She received her board certification from the American College of Veterinary Dermatology (Dipl.ACVD) in 2018. After working for 6 years at a Specialty and Emergency hospital in Ottawa, ON, Canada she will soon be moving to beautiful Nova Scotia and joining the Coastal Care Team!

Her main interests include auto-immune disorders, allergy management and infectious diseases. She is passionate about providing customized diagnostic procedures and treatment options for her patients while meeting the owner’s goals and expectations. Dermatology is a specialty with many chronic diseases, and she is convinced that working as a team with the owner is key to offering her patients the best possible level of care and comfort.

In her spare time, Dr Laprais enjoys traveling, hiking and spending quality time with her friends, family and dog Moonshine!
