About Us Meet the Team


Small Dr. Laura Mendes

Dr. Laura Mendes is our overseeing veterinarian at Zerlotti Genetics Ltd.  Dr. Mendes was born into an Army family, which required her to move around quite frequently. Upon completing Vet School in 1999 from Texas A&M University, she worked at a clinic in Tomball, Texas.  In 2006, she moved to Pleasanton, Texas where she now resides and is the owner of a mixed practice clinic. Dr. Mendes has been around horses most of her life, as she started riding at the young age of 2. She has participated in show jumping and three day eventing. She is married with 2 daughters who also ride horses. She brings to us her extensive knowledge in equine medicine and provides for us all of our clinical work. We are excited
