Adam Lauppe, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Lauppe (pronounced “Loopy”) loves serving Merced, where he was born and raised. A Golden Valley High School graduate, he received his bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and graduated from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2013.

Dr. Lauppe grew up taking his family’s pets to Valley Animal Hospital for care, and he is grateful to have the opportunity to continue the establishment’s legacy of compassionate and excellent veterinary care.

Dr. Lauppe married his best friend Katie, a local attorney, in 2016. Together they have two lazy cats, Steve (the wise one) and Weezy (the princess, pictured), and a playful Doberman, Ace. Ace’s only wish is that the cats might someday acknowledge his existence!

He is also active at the state level on various veterinary issues.

Dr. Lauppe enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and camping, and he has run the Merced Half Marathon annually since its beginning in 2014. He and Katie are highly competitive when it comes to golf and Trivial Pursuit!
