Michael J. Faust DVM

Michael J. Faust DVM

Michael J. Faust, DVM is a graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in the 1979 class.He decided that he wanted to be a veterinarian when he was 12 years old. He continued to dream of this through high school and 8 years at L.S.U.

Dr. Faust was in the third class of a new school of veterinary medicine at L.S.U. He is a member of the Phi Zeta honors society. He was able to accomplish this goal through extreme interest in animals and medicine and by studying unusually hard. Dr. Faust realizes that pets are truly family members, and that treating pets also helps their owners.

He has practiced at Faust Veterinary Hospital since his graduation. It is the mission Dr.Faust and Faust Veterinary Hospital to provide the highest quality veterinary medicine and surgery at an affordable fee.





Dr. Faust has had a love for animals all of his life. He and his father raised chickens in New Orleans and sold their eggs in the neighborhood. The sale of the eggs paid for his first 4 years of college at Louisiana State University.

The practice of veterinary medicine is not a career, but rather a way of life for Dr. Faust. He has been practicing for 33 years and has no plans to retire.

In practice, Dr. Faust treats dogs, cats, birds and exotic animals. His mission is to achieve excellence in small animal medicine and surgery. He attends education seminars on small animal medicine and surgery every year.

Dr. Faust has seen quite a number of diseases in 33 years of practice. He feels that his practice is never boring because every case is different and new illnesses are frequently diagnosed.
He is very anxious to help and protect his patients and owners and feels the same about new patients and pet owners
