Dr. Laurence O'Hara

Meet the friendly staff at Falmouth Veterinary Hospital!

Laurence O'Hara

Dr. Laurence O'Hara has a particular interest in surgery, but loves all aspects of general small animal practice.

Dr. O'Hara grew up in North Wales in the United Kingdom, and he received his Bachelor’s in Biological Anthropology in 2000 from Cambridge University, Gonville and Caius College in the UK. He then earned his Vet MB with a Special Merit in Veterinary Surgery in 2003. He started his career as an equine vet, and after several years in practice, he went to the Royal Veterinary College in London to undertake a residency in Equine Surgery. He subsequently realized that his main love was small animal practice, and he returned to exclusively small animal practice several years ago. His wife is from Millinocket, and after spending several summer vacations in Maine together, they decided that this was where they wanted to live and raise their family. He joined Falmouth Veterinary Hospital in March 2015.

Dr. O’Hara lives in Falmouth with his wife, Toni, and their sons Geoffrey and Oscar. He enjoys trail running and snowshoe racing with his two dogs, Chewbacca and Baxter. A fun fact: Dr. O’Hara has represented Great Britain in the world snowshoe racing championships. We should explain that not many people run on snowshoes in the UK! When he isn't outside playing, he enjoys woodwork, cooking and playing the guitar.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "My two cats consistently get the BEST care from the vets at Falmouth Veterinary Hospital, starting with the lovely people at check-in to the kind and caring folks upon leaving. The vets and assistants genuinely care about the health and well-being of our two kitties, and as a pet mom, I always feel reassured and happy with their care."

  • "I have been a client there for over 30 years. Care is always excellent. Would not want to ever have to go elsewhere. They are great and so loving when treating my dogs."
    Marcia M.
  • "Dr Graves goes above and beyond with our senior dog. He is caring and thoughtful and respectful. He understands that our dog is a part of our family and treats him as such. The other vets we have met have been just as great and all of the staff are friendly and helpful. We could go to closer practices, but we won’t because this crew is worth the drive."
