Dr. Amy Sutherland

Dr. Amy M. Sutherland has been a resident of the Ponchatoula area since moving here with her parents in 1986. She attended Ponchatoula Junior High and High School and graduated with honors in 1993. She then attended Southeastern Louisiana University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1997 with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and in 2001 with a Masters of Arts in Psychology. Dr. Sutherland attended Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in May of 2006.

While in veterinary school, she started her career at Animal Care Center as a veterinary assistant and then worked as a veterinarian upon graduation. Dr. Sutherland moved out of the area for a brief time and gained experience in emergency medicine, internal medicine and client education before returning to the Hammond area and Animal Care Center in May 2013. Her special interests include feline medicine, internal medicine, dermatology and especially client education.

Dr. Sutherland has a menagerie of her own pets – 9 cats and 3 dogs – all of which were either strays or rescues. During her free time, she can be found spoiling her two children and pets, exercising and focusing on nutrition, and spending time with her family and friends. She is currently a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association and is ecstatic to be back home and practicing in the Hammond area!
