Dr. Sara Taetzsch will be leaving us. Dr. Sara received her D.V.M. degree from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. She joined our practice 3 years ago, working part-time while she pursued a Masters of Public Health degree at the College. Dr. Sara has recently completed this advanced degree and will be assuming a full-time position with the USDA, Food Safety and Inspection Service at Harrisonburg, Virginia. Dr. Sara’ last day will be Saturday, March 3. We appreciate the kindness, compassion and medical care she has provided to our furry friends. We wish her well as she pursues this alternative career in veterinary medicine. We’ll miss Dr. Sara!
