Dr. Andrea Morgan
Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Andrea Morgan grew up in the middle of Louisiana’s Kisatchie National Forest, in a small village called Goldonna. Living deep in the country didn’t always allow for a quick trip to the vet’s office—Dr. Morgan and her family had to deal with a lot of injuries and illnesses on their own! She’s been helping animals ever since she can remember; for her, becoming a veterinarian was her singular calling.

Dr. Morgan obtained her degree in veterinary technology at the same time that she was studying her pre-requisite curriculum for veterinary school. She attended Louisiana State University to earn her Doctorate, then headed to Florida to launch her career. Dr. Morgan secured her first job as a licensed veterinarian in Lakeland, working in a mixed-animal practice and caring for everything from dogs and cats to horses and cattle. After a few years, she decided she wanted a change—that’s when Dr. Morgan began interviewing at small-animal practices, joining the Baycrest Animal Clinic family in 2001. Now, she’s the clinic’s chief veterinarian and owner!

Here at the hospital, Dr. Morgan particularly likes using all of the methods and techniques at her disposal to keep pets comfortable and pain-free for their entire lives. Her favorite part of her work is forming lasting bonds with clients and their pets, and she’s incredibly proud to be able to make a true difference in the lives of so many of the area’s families.

Aside from her interests in the world of animal care, Dr. Morgan enjoys kayaking in the springs of Florida, swimming, indoor rock climbing, hiking and camping in the great outdoors, and spending time with her family, friends, and pets. She and her partner, Anthony, share their lives with their son, Pacey, and a troop of four wonderful dogs: Ziek, 100 pounds of pure Boxer/Pit Bull love; a Pit Bull mix named Bob who is completely obsessed with his toy balls; Reggie the Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who sleeps under the covers every night; and Dobby, a Pit Bull mix puppy who was rescued from right here Baycrest Animal Clinic and now joins Dr. Morgan at work every day.
