Dr. Laura Tonetti Hall grew up in Gulf Breeze, Florida.  From a very young age, she knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian.  Growing up, she rescued many animals.  In high school, her love for animals found her working at an animal hospital in Gulf Breeze.  She attended Auburn University and received a bachelor of science in Zoology.  She was also accepted into the Veterinary School at Auburn, which is one of the most prestigious colleges for veterinary medicine.  Dr. Hall graduated in the top of all of her classes.

After college, her first job was in Baldwin County, AL.  She was working with large and small animals.  She worked for 2  1/2 yrs. with horses, cows, pigs, goats, exotic animals, dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and many other of God’s creatures.  She was performing extensive surgeries every day.  With her colleagues, she gained a lot of priceless hands-on experience, where every day was a new challenge.

Her next move was to Marietta, Georgia.  She was working with a large 7 doctor small animal clinic.  This clinic is where she decided that working with small animals and exotic animals is where she felt most at home.  She took several ultrasound and laser courses and interpreted all the cases for that animal hospital.  Then in 2002 she decided it was time to pursue her own goals.

East Hill Animal Hospital opened on September 16, 2002,  East Hill Animal Hospital provides a nurturing, comfortable, and professional environment.  Located in the Historic District of Pensacola’s East Hill area gives the hospital personality and a convenient location.  While the outside has an original historic look that adds character to this high quality/ high service business,  the inside is a modern, high tech hospital. Feel free to stop by any time for a tour.
