Dr Larry Findley Jr


I have worked in and around vet med my whole life, except for about 4 yrs while in the US Navy. Even then I would come home on weekends and help out with the veterinary practice. I graduated in 2003 from Ross Veterinary School located in St. Kitts, West Indies - which was the bomb! After my time at Ross University, I was fortunate enough to do my last year of Vet school (clinical year) at L.S.U. Vet School. Finally I came back home to Vinton to work with my father here at Delta Equine Center. I am happily married with 10 beautiful children.
