Mia LaFoca

Mia joined Back Mountain Vet right after Thanksgiving 2022.  She comes with a degree in Pre-Vet Animal Science from Auburn University.  Mia has a great love for all animals, but horses are her true passion. Her keen interest in Equine Sports Medicine enabled her to complete an internship with KESMARC for equine rehab.  Mia enjoys getting to work with the variety of species we see here and is learning a lot about treating a wide range of health conditions every day.  She has discovered that she finds respiratory and infectious disease treatment especially interesting. Mia hopes to take all of the knowledge she gains during her work here with her when she applies to Veterinary School. Her goal is to do a Residency in Equine Sports Medicine. It comes as no surprise then that horseback riding with her Oldenburg, Dottie or her Quarter Horse, Cash is how Mia likes to spend her free time. However, Mia is no “one trick pony,” so she also enjoys baking, cooking, and hanging out with her cat Figaro and her dog, Elle.
