Tchefuncte Animal Hospital, LLC

About Our Veterinarian in Madisonville

Welcome to Tchefuncte Animal Hospital, LLC where our three veterinarians, Dr. Laura Ferrara, Dr. David Moores, and Dr. Mark Mikelonis, provide high quality veterinary service to residents of Madisonville and nearby communities.

Our Services

We are more than just a dog and cat animal hospital. Not only do we welcome puppies and kitties, we also see small animals (rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, and the like).

During our open hours, we provide emergency care for all your animals. If you need urgent care, please call us right away and let us know you have a veterinary emergency. This way our vets can prepare to receive you or direct you to MedVet if the situation calls for that. We have the latest equipment on hand to perform animal surgery and meet everyday wellness needs, best responding to pet emergencies. 

Animal Care in Madisonville

When it comes to everyday animal care, our veterinarians can provide wellness checkups, flea and tick prevention, management of diseases like heartworms, behavioral counseling, new puppy and kitty care, and more. Our animal doctors can also perform animal dental care checkups and dental surgery under anesthesia. 

We also offer pet grooming services for your convenience. Let us clean your pet's ears, trim nails, give a haircut, or shampoo your pet to keep your animals looking and feeling fantastic. 

Did you know we also offer pet boarding? Next time you are traveling, consider leaving your beloved pet with our veterinary staff that are able to provide professional care of your pet in a clean, comfortable environment. 

About Our Veterinarians 

We are very fortunate to have three talented veterinarians on staff as well as our capable animal care technicians. Dr. David Moores is a native of Covington who attended LSU's renowned veterinary school. Dr. Laura Ferrara has been a veterinarian in the Mandeville and Madisonville area for more than 10 years, also an LSU alum. Dr. Mark Mikelonis, a veterinarian for more than 25 years, also served as an Air Force reservist for 11 years and an LSU alum as well. All of our vets take pride in providing comprehensive animal services. 

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: We focus on bringing the best of contemporary medicine to your pets in a caring and compassionate manner. Our care is comprehensive and relies on the latest in technological advances to meet your pets' medical and dental needs. 

Our mission statement:

Our motto is "Serving Pets and People." We want to provide the best care for your pet while keeping in mind the individual needs of their caretakers. We want to be able to help all members of the family! We strive to do this in a way that reflects our underlying desire to use Jesus as our example and the Bible as our guide in all that we do.  We hope to always do our best and have this motivation show in how we treat everyone who entrusts us with the care of their pets. 

Thank you and we hope to see you and your furry (or not-so-furry; maybe feathery, scaly, or hairless!) friends soon!
