Laura Michelotti, DVM

Rotating Veterinarian

Laura Michelotti

I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, but have lived in Maryland for over 10 years now and fully embrace the Maryland pride. I attended the University of Maryland for my bachelor’s degree and then Oklahoma State University for my veterinary medical degree. In my free time I love to go for runs, hike, and spend quality time with my pug and fiancé (husband as of September 2020), James.


Clinical Areas of Interest

  • Ophthalmology
  • Internal Medicine, with a special interest in dialysis and other extracorporeal therapies

Why do you work at Friendship?

Prior to the veterinary match I spent time visiting Friendship. Both the program and the staff are precisely what I am looking for in my first job as a veterinarian- supportive, challenging, hands-on, and diverse. Not to mention the opportunity to come back to the amazing Washington D.C. area!


  • University of Maryland, College Park, B.S. Animal Sciences 2014
