Dr. Sarah Szluha  Dr. Sarah Szluha

Dr. Sarah graduated from Oak Ridge High School. She received her Bachelors Degree from UT in 2001 with a major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a minor in English - She loves Shakespeare as a result! She then graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. Dr. Sarah's mother was a prominent Ragdoll breeder for nearly 15 years and Dr. Sarah "grew up" in a cattery. Hence, Dr. Sarah is very comfortable with felines of all temperaments, and the cats sense this as well. Before going to vet school, Dr. Sarah worked as an environmental science editor. While successful with this, her passion still remained with the animals. Right out of school, Dr. Sarah with the help of her vet husband, Dr. Paul, founded Middlebrook Animal Clinic in April of 2005. Dr. Sarah's approach is a bit unorthodox, as she sits on the floor to visit with her patients before the exam to help relax them. Dr. Sarah has special interest in treating skin conditions and loves dermatology cases. Drs. Paul and Sarah had their first human baby in 2012, but they still consider Middlebrook Animal Clinic as their first "child" together. Dr. Paul now spends the majority of his time at McArthur Animal Hospital in Oak Ridge, where he took over in 2007. In her spare time, Dr. Sarah is a fervent knitter and crocheter. She has two cats Ringo and Bill, and a bouncy canine, Mina. Dr Sarah recently lost her beloved kitty Kita, she was 19 years old. (=^.^=)
