Sarah Kain

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

“Dr. Sarah” began working at the hospital at the age of 13, starting at the bottom and working her way up through the profession.

Dr. Sarah is beloved by clients, patients and employees alike. She works around the clock to provide the best care possible to every animal and will never hesitate to work extra hours to care for an animal in need. Her work ethic and compassion exemplify everything a vet should be, and she pushes her employees to be the same.

She is a graduate of St. Georges University School of Veterinary Medicine True Blue, Grenada, West Indies. She joined a running club, the Hash House Harriers, and still loves to run. She joined a scooter gang but doesn’t scoot anymore. She brings 2 of her kids, her German shepherd and her Irish Wolfhound, Wakiya and Bevin. They are super friendly and love visits from the clients and patients!
