Sarah Young, Staff Veterinarian

DVM

I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.  Upon graduation, my husband and I moved to Anchorage, Alaska, and then eventually to Onalaska, Wisconsin, where we lived for seven years. We moved back to Cedar Rapids in 2014 and I am grateful to have our family back where a large portion of our extended family lives.

We have two smart and witty children and own an American Eskimo Juneau, and three cats, Mezzo, Cricket and Ninja.  Pets fill our lives and hearts in places that we didn't know were empty.  Their quiet understanding, their goofy antics, their ridiculous habits, they way they vomit only on the carpet and often when you are running late, the way they are happy to see you after a hard day and the millions of ways they make us feel whole. I can't imagine working in a different field.

If you look back at my elementary school scrapbooks starting around first or second grade what I wanted to be when I grew up changed from "teacher" to "veterinarian" and I aimed for that the rest of my life. Growing up we actually brought our family dog to VCA Edgewood Animal Hospital and I would take all of the free brochures so that I could play veterinarian at home with my stuffed animals.  It is surreal that my life has come full circle and now I am a member of the VCA Edgewood Animal Hospital Team.
