Lauren Zielinski-Prater, DVM


Dr. Zielinski began her journey in the veterinary field as a registered veterinary technician. She realized she wanted an even bigger role in the field and attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, she completed a clinical year at University of Missouri. She started with Banfield in 2017, spending time at the St. Charles and Florissant locations before joining the O’Fallon team. Dr. Z, as we call her, likes to educate about preventive care and loves how the wellness plans can simplify that care! She is interested in behavior and is excited for every learning opportunity that comes her way! Dr. Zielinski has a mixed breed dog named Toby, from St. Kitts. In her spare time, she enjoys cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues teams with her family!
