Our Metairie, LA Veterinary Care Team

Our professional staff is led by founder and veterinarian Cynthia Benbow, D.V.M., C.V.A. Dr. Benbow is a Metairie, Louisiana native having attended St. Edward the Confessor Elementary School and St. Mary’s Dominican High School. She completed undergraduate studies at Southeastern Louisiana University and received her DVM in 2000 from Louisiana State University's School of Veterinary Medicine. After practicing in Knoxville, she returned to Metairie to open up a mobile veterinary service, and in 2005, like others in the region, suffered the wrath of Hurricane Katrina. Throughout this period she began expanding on her interest in acupuncture in pet care, and began offering it in conjunction with traditional veterinary services. As word spread about her success, in November of 2011, Dr. Benbow expanded her practice with the addition of a new clinic in Old Metairie, Louisiana and Benbow Veterinary Services (BVS) was born.

Dr. Benbow continues her lifelong passion of helping animals alongside a support staff of caring professionals.
