I am so saddened to learn this news. Lauren Frank was truly a bright light, a very special individual who probably had no idea how much she "WOW-ed" people on a daily basis. Lauren was kind, supremely talented with both animals and people, highly intuitive, and sought to help those around her rise above. I had the honor of working with her at CUVS and will never forget her beautiful smile and enthusiasm. She was always so refreshing to be around.

She was deeply loved on this earth and will be dearly missed. Dear Lauren, may you rest in peace and comfort. My deepest sympathies to your family. We have lost an amazing, irreplaceable woman. Lauren, may your spirit live on in eternal love and light.

I am so very sad to hear this news. Lauren was an incredible person. Her spirit was infectious, her soul was kind, and she was an amazing veterinarian. Amanda and I were fortunate to spend some time with her a few weeks ago. I will always remember her and the love and care she gave to my dog Nellie. My heart breaks for Patrick and her family.

I cannot express the grief I am feeling at this moment. The world has lost the most beautiful soul I have ever known. Lauren took care of my beautiful St. Bernard for several years as she was dealing with a growing inability to walk. She treated both her as well as myself as I watched my girl go through so much pain that Lauren lessened for her at every visit. Towards the end, she could no longer stand alone so Lauren got her a harness that we could pick her up with and help her walk. She extended my time with her by several years I do believe. And her infectious sense of humor got us through some tough times. Always, always she made me laugh so hard. And always hugs...always. When she told me she was leaving UCD I burst into tears. She hugged me and said "don't be sad, be happy for me. I want to go, this is a good thing." I have never stopped missing her. She was such a powerful presence. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. I can't even imagine the loss you are feeling.
May she be at peace now and forever.

Lauren you were such an amazing woman who touched the souls of everyone that you came in contact with. I am glad I had such an honor to work with and learn from you. Anytime you walked into a room everything lit up. You touched and healed the lives of so many animals. I will always have the fondest memories of us listening to our music and having such wonderful laughs. You were there for everyone to make sure we were all happy and smiling. Lauren you were a truly amazing, compassionate, and dedicated soul to everything that you did. My heart is truly broken hearing of this. May you rest easy, i will miss you always.

Frank Family,
My heart aches to hear the passing of Dr. Frank. I had the pleasure of working with her at Cornell and my pup was lucky enough to be under her care. She has such a vibrant soul and her smile could light up the whole room. She will forever be remembered.

I only just found out about this tragic news today. My heart is so broken. I had the HONOR to work with her. She was one amazing human being. I loved stopping by the rehab area. It was always so refreshing, just to see her. I cannot believe this. Lauren- you were one of the nicest doctor that I've ever worked with. You left a piece in my heart and I will hold on to that forever. I am so sorry that you are not with us. I cannot believe that I won't even be able to see you again. I am so sorry that we did not keep in touch. I will miss you forever. Rest in Peace <3 I hope you are with your animals and your love ones in heaven. With warm love, Emma

Dr Frank was an amazing veterinarian! We crossed paths at UCD working on the same patient without ever actually meeting. We met again in China where she taught me acupuncture and later helped me be a better TA for acupuncture. We were looking forward to working together more on research projects. She was the type of person who you could instantly click with and that had happened with us. I am devastated that she is gone and send my deepest sympathies and hugs to her loved ones. She will always be remembered and will be deeply missed.

My heart aches to hear of Lauren's passing. Our paths crossed twice when she was a student and observed my dog Maddy being treated for kidney disease at my western vet, and later at an integrative vet for acupuncture and herbs. She exuded kindness. My best to her family and friends as they grieve and heal from this deep loss.

Like Marni, I was able to work with Lauren while she was a vet student and when she took her position as a physical therapy/integrative medicine veterinarian at the UC Davis Vet Med Teaching Hospital. She was always smiling and so dedicated to her patients. She will be sorely missed. Please accept my deepest condolences.
