Lauren Dell, DVM

LaurenWithKristyI grew up in rural Poolesville, Maryland with cats, dogs, and horses. I studied Biology at The College of William & Mary and earned my doctorate from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at VA Tech in 1997. I spent the first eight years of my career in Virginia, primarily working with dogs and cats and developing interests in nutrition, behavior, and geriatrics. I also learned feral cat Medicine and served as Medical Director for Meower Power, a feral cat management group.

My family and I moved to Johnson City, TN for 3 years, where I continued small animal practice with a significant amount of shelter medicine. We came to Hebron in 2008 when my husband Kevin, an internist, joined the faculty of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. We have two teen-aged daughters. Our animals include 4 cats, 2 horses, and a pony.

After 18 years in practice, I decided to distill everything I learned from my prior positions to shape a practice devoted to cats. The Cat Vet of Hebron opened in 2015. To learn more about our priorities and values, please see the Ethics Statement.

Becky – Client Services

Hi, I’m Dr. Dell’s daughter, Becky! I moved from Tennessee to Hebron, KY in 2008 and have grown up here with my family. I’m currently a student at Conner High School and started working at TCVOH alongside my mom in May 2019. I’ve been raised surrounded by cats my entire life, and have 3 at home. I love working as a receptionist here and getting to know clients and their wonderful kitties always brings a smile to my face!


Hi! I’m Helena. I moved to Kentucky from Germany in 2009 with my family. I now have a cat, dog, 3 reptiles, and a horse who all keep me busy. I’ve always felt like my heart resides with felines though I connect with them the most. I even have a birthmark of a cat paw on my leg. There has always been a strong desire in me to work with and help animals. I plan on doing that for as long as possible. I’m looking forward to meeting you and your Kitties!

Abby – Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Abby. I work at the Cat Vet of Hebron as a veterinary technician. I graduated from Vet Tech Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana, and received a degree in Veterinary Technology in December 2019. I started working at the Cat Vet in February 2020. While growing up I had a deep love for animals, especially felines. This developed into seeking a career in the field of Veterinary Medicine so I could care for and provide an excellent level of support to all of your meowing companions. During my time here at the Cat Vet, I have learned something new every day. I thank you for providing me with the opportunity to care for and assist you in understanding the peculiarities of your feline friends.
