Meet our Doctors

Laura Zemanian, VMD

Rotating Veterinarian


I am originally from Norfolk, Virginia and grew up around large dogs, feisty cats, and two sarcastic older siblings. My passion for veterinary medicine began at 16 years old when I started working as a veterinary assistant at a local small animal clinic. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in Biology, and then received my veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. During veterinary school, I helped run a shelter medicine student surgery program and routinely volunteered at Philadelphia animal shelters.

My professional interests include emergency and critical care, internal medicine, neurology, and surgery. In my free time, I enjoy baking, brunching, hiking with my exuberant dog Wazzy, and playing Settler’s of Catan.  I am incredibly excited to join the Friendship family and explore the DC area.

Friendship provides state of the art, comprehensive services for our clients and patients. But, more than that, we provide a caring team who understand the unique human-animal bond. View Our Services
