12 Questions With Dr. Leigh Anne Robertson
DVM of Lantana Animal Hospital

by Steve Gamel

Lantana Living: Why did you decide to become a veterinarian?

“That’s an easy one. I was raised on a ranch; we didn’t have just regular animals because my dad also did work for the San Diego Zoo. When I was five, we had a pygmy goat who needed a c-section, and I got to help with that. From the time of that on forward, I always wanted to be a vet.”

Lantana Living: What is your favorite and least favorite part about your job?

“My favorite part of my job is that each and every day I get to truly make a difference
in not only the life of pets but also their people. The least favorite is the end-of-life time for pets.”

Lantana Living: What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened at your practice?

“Many years ago, I had a patient bring in a new kitten. Her daughters had been wanting a girl cat for a long time, so they adopted a white kitty and named her Star. During the exam, I told her that Star was actually a boy. I was told that I couldn’t tell their daughters, so every time they brought him in, I had to refer to “him” as a “her”.”

Lantana Living: If you couldn’t be a veterinarian, what would you do for a living?

“Had I not been accepted into vet school, I’d be training horses for a living. I grew up on a ranch and did rodeo professionally for a long time, so that’s what I’d do.”

Lantana Living: What is your favorite trait about yourself?

“I really enjoy talking to people. It’s a gift because I just enjoy other people. For me, it’s an openness and a joy to interact with the world around me. The joy I get from talking from people is special.”

Lantana Living: What is your least favorite trait about yourself?

“Aside from doctor-patient confidentiality, I’d say on a personal level that I’m horrible at keeping secrets. I am too communicative; I’d be worried about spilling the beans.

Lantana Living: Do you have other talents that people don’t know about you?

“A lot of people don’t know that I trained horses or that I ride and race bikes. I played french horn and trombone when I was in high school, as well.”

Lantana Living: What’s your favorite color?

“Purple.”

Lantana Living: If you were stuck in an elevator with one person, who would it be?

“On purpose or on accident? I’d say Jason Momoa.”

Lantana Living: What’s your deepest darkest secret?

“My secret is that I can’t keep secrets on a personal level.”

Lantana Living: If you had to karaoke one song in front of a packed gym, what would it be?

“TobyMac … Eye On It.”

Lantana Living: What’s the dumbest way you’ve been injured?

“That’s an easy one. I’ve literally tripped over my own foot and fallen down. I’m a klutz.”
