Alexander Cole, DVM
Over his 23 year career as a veterinarian Dr. Cole has enjoyed the role of exotics only practitioner, zoo veterinarian, and small animal clinician, but his passion is surgery.
Dr. Cole grew up in south Louisiana, and as a child had a backyard zoo filled with all manner of birds and rabbits. He knew he wanted to be a veterinarian at a young age, joining 4-H and reading James Herriot’s novels. He completed his undergraduate studies and veterinary school both at Louisiana State University.
He shares his home with his soulmate Missy, 5 teenage kids, 2 dogs-Tulip and Lily, a herd of tortoises, a flock of chickens, a couple of ball pythons, and sometimes wildlife from a local rehabilitation facility.
