Dr. Sara Gonzalez
Dr. Sara Gonzalez

Born and raised in sunny South Florida, Sara attended the University of Florida for her education. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology in 2005, her Master of Science in Animal Science in 2007, and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2011.

While in school, her special interests included Small Animal Internal Medicine and Clinical Pathology. Sara’s husband accepted a faculty position in the KSU Department of Animal Sciences and Industry when she completed her veterinary education, and the couple moved to Manhattan in June of 2011.

Sara gained experience as a small animal general practitioner at two local small animal practices before she joined the team at Kansas State University in August of 2016. As a Small Animal Emergency Clinician in the Veterinary Health Center, Sara was able to explore her interests in teaching and Internal Medicine.

In March of 2018, Sara accepted the position of Clinical Veterinarian in the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Kansas State University. In this role, she will focus on applying her companion animal experience to assist you in the submission process. This will include assistance in appropriate test selection through diagnostic test interpretation.

Additionally, she will teach an Applied Animal Behavior elective to second and third year veterinary students in the fall, and assist with the General Pathology rotation for the fourth year students.

When Sara isn’t celebrating her new allegiance to the Wildcats, she enjoys spending time with her two children outdoors, traveling, cooking, reading, and practicing yoga.
