Sarah Salyer
Veterinarian Specialist - Surgery DVM, MS, DACVS-SA, ACVS (Fellow, Surgical Oncology)
Born and raised in Kentucky, Sarah received her Bachelor's in Psychobiology from Centre College, followed by a Master's degree in Physiology from the University of Louisville. There she developed an oncology research interest. However, her love of animals and surgery took her to Tuskegee University in Alabama, where she earned her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2015. After vet school, she completed a rotating internship at BluePearl Veterinary Specialists in Louisville, Kentucky, followed by a small animal surgery specialty internship at VCA Animal Specialty Center of South Carolina. Sarah went on to complete a small animal surgery residency at The Ohio State University. Throughout training, she developed a passion for surgical oncology and continued at Ohio State University to complete a fellowship in Surgical Oncology after residency.

Sarah is excited to join the team and is looking forward to starting a surgical oncology service at VCA Northwest. She has a particular interest in maxillofacial surgery, thoracic surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, urogenital surgery, and wounds/skin reconstruction.
