 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 Rhett and Bill, and a bouncy canine, Mina. Dr Sarah recently lost her beloved kitty Kita, she was 19 years old. (=^.^=)

She received her bachelor's of science from the University of Tennessee in 1996 with a major in biology and zoology and a minor in education. Dr. Seyfert graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. She worked full-time in Knoxville for 10 years until her first child was born in 2012. Dr Seyfert lives in Knoxville with her husband and her 2 little girls. She is the proud owner of Hannah a 12 year old golden retriever, and Angel a 16 year old tabby cat. Growing up the daughter of an anatomy and physiology professor  has given Dr. Seyfert a strong love of science and an appreciation for education. Some of her earliest childhood memories are spending time in her fathers classroom. Dr. Seyfert has always loved animals and grew up around dogs and cats. She spent the early parts of her childhood with geese, ducks, rabbits and chickens as pets too. Dr. Seyfert spent some of her undergraduate studies researching primate behavior  at the Knoxville Zoological Gardens. She strongly considered a career in behavioral studies and animal conservation but fell in love with small animal medicine. In her free time Dr. Seyfert loves to read, garden, arts and crafts, but most of all spend time with her husband and children.
