Larry Lanzon, DVM

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Larry Lanzon graduated from Michigan State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1980. He has spent 39 years in private practice, the last 3 years with Embryo Inc. Lanzon joined the AETA in 1982 and was privileged to have Edwin Robertson, Bob Rowe, Reuben Mapletoft, and Joe Wright as his mentors when getting started in assisted reproductive technology. Lanzon earned a masters of preventative veterinary medicine in epidemiology in 2013 from UC Davis.

Lanzon and his wife Cathy raised three children—Jesse, Casey, and Caitlin—together in Turlock, which is absolutely his proudest accomplishment. Presently, there are three grandsons—Casey, Cody, and Charlie—in the Lanzon clan.

Through the years, Lanzon spent his time with the Boy Scouts of America; attending swim meets, water polo games, and gymnastic meets; raising Red Angus cattle; and fly-fishing with his children.

In practice, Lanzon enjoyed the diversity of dairy practice, working with and teaching students from all over the world. However, he quickly developed an interest in assisted reproductive technology and has continued to learn, teach, and enjoy embryo transfer and IVF. He respectfully thanks all those who helped him along the way.
