Dr. Racelle LaMar

Dr. Racelle LaMar

Dr. Racelle LaMar has lived in Santa Rosa with her family since 1968. 

She is a graduate of Texas A & M University Veterinary Medical School and has been in practice since 1983.

Dr. LaMar bought Northtown Animal Hospital in 2011 from Dr. Brown. The practice burned in the wildfires of 2017. Since then she has been helping her clients by doing house calls, ‘borrowing space’ at a local practice and the K9 Activity Club. After almost a year of searching, Guardian Pet Hospital and Northtown merged.

Dr. LaMar looks forward to many more years of helping the Sonoma County residents with their 4-legged family members. When not at work she is an avid Sharks fan and likes traveling to NHL hockey stadiums with her husband and son.
