Lauren Dell, DVM
I 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.

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.

Hi, I’m Julie! I just moved to Cincinnati in November 2016 from Baton Rouge, LA, where I was a zoo keeper and zoo educator for the past 4 years. I love animals of all types and my passion is for conservation. I am also a zoo educator and volunteer at the Cincinnati Zoo. I enjoy working at TCVOH because it is a calm, soothing environment for our feline friends and I look forward to meeting new clients and patients every day. I split my time in the office between the front desk and patient care as a veterinary assistant.

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.
Jackie – Veterinary Assistant
Hi, I’m Jackie! Ever since I was a little girl wrapped up in a bed full of stuffed animals of all sorts, I have dreamt of working in a veterinary office. That dream started with my working at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden’s Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife for twenty years as their Cat Colony Manager. In this role I managed a colony of domestic cats and assisted veterinarians and scientists with behavioral, wellness, nutrition, reproductive, disease, and health studies all related to feline medicine for both domestic and endangered feline species. The knowledge and experience I acquired has led me to a new endeavor as a Cat Vet Technician Assistant continuing to expand my knowledge and new skills while working with clients and seeing the love they have for their cats. I look forward to talking to you about your cats and assisting to make their lives happy and healthy!
