LVCC member since: 2013
Our lone North Louisiana transplant, Dr. Patrick came to LVCC by way of Las Vegas, Nevada after practicing and training for 2 years just south of the strip. He was raised in Monroe, LA and attended Veterinary school at LSU after early graduation from LA Tech University.
While in school, Dr. Patrick was the President of several governing bodies and participated in committees helping to shape veterinary legislation. Today, he continues his involvement in several veterinary groups such as the American Veterinary Medical Association, Acadiana Area Veterinary Association, Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Animal Hospital Association as well as being engaged in church activities and community groups such as Ducks Unlimited.
Dr. Patrick enjoys all areas of practice but is particularly interested in surgery, dentistry, reproduction and staying on the cusp of advanced diagnostics such as ultrasound guided biopsies, endoscopy, and laparoscopic techniques.
His wife, Dr. Heather Stelly Cutbirth, is the veterinarian at the Lafayette Animal Shelter. They share their home with their son, Wyatt, and their pets Butter (a pug) and Annie (a yellow Lab). In his free time, Dr. Patrick enjoys spending time with his friends and family, being in the woods or on the water, and watching any of our Louisiana football teams.
