Dr. Sarah Buck joined Kitsap Veterinary Hospital in May 1999. Dr. Buck received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999, where she graduated magna cum laude. Prior to graduate school, Dr. Buck earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biological and Animal Science from UVM in Burlington, Vermont. Dr. Buck is originally from Vermont. She moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1994 and worked as a veterinary technician for one year, which confirmed her decision to attend veterinary school. In 2015, Dr. Buck lost four geriatric pets: two miniature dachshunds ages 14 & 15 and two cats who lived to be 20 & 21 years of age. They all continue to hold a special place in her heart. This experience has given her a new appreciation and understanding of aging pets and their special needs. Dr. Buck enjoys spending her free time with her husband watching her two boys play baseball. She is an avid runner and mountain biker. She enjoys spending quiet time with her two cats reading a good book.
