Dr. Sarah Wallace
Dr. Sarah Wallace remembers playing “doctor” with a number of family pets, and she was constantly bringing in snapping turtles found on the road, baby birds that had fallen from their nests, and rabbits that the cat had gotten hold of. She credits these early experiences helping to care for pets with her eventual choice of career. Dr. Wallace continues to help the earth’s creatures every day—she’s a veterinarian here at South Rhea Animal Hospital!
Dr. Wallace received her undergraduate degree at the University of Findlay, where she fell in love with farm animal medicine, and attended Ohio State University's College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She graduated in May of 2020, and joined the team here at South Rhea Animal Hospital shortly afterward. As much as she loves dressing up, wearing high heels, and doning lipstick, Dr. Wallace is always excited to put on her boots and coveralls and get dirty working with cattle and other large animals! Of course, she also loves tending to the area’s smaller companion animals and loves meeting new pet owners one-on-one.
Outside of work, Dr. Wallace can usually be found thrifting, exploring new places, playing sports, spending time with family, or doting on her own pets at home. She has three animal companions: Waffles the Irish Wolfhound; a Great Dane who goes by Gypsy; and a hairless cat named Scrotum.
