Sara Allstadt, DVM, Diplomate ACVIM (Oncology)

Dr. Allstadt became a veterinary oncologist because it allowed her to incorporate her love for animals with a career that makes a difference. She completed her undergraduate and DVM training at Auburn University in 2002. Dr. Allstadt started her career as a general practice veterinarian before making a career switch to specialty medicine. She completed her internship at Affiliated Veterinary Specialists in Maitland, Florida and her specialty internship in oncology at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, MA. Her residency in oncology was completed in 2010 at the University of California-Davis and she is board certified by American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in Oncology. During her career, she has been an assistant professor of oncology at the University of California-Davis and at the University of Tennessee, which has allowed her to publish a number of articles and proceedings on a wide variety of cancer topics. Off duty, Dr. Allstadt is an SEC football fan (War Eagle!) and enjoys riding cutting horses.
