Sara N. Armon, DVM
Companion Animal Veterinarian
Originally from the Midwest (Illinois), I moved to the Wild West in the fall of 2015 shortly after graduating from the University College Dublin in Ireland. My career began in Kingman where I was a mixed animal practitioner; seeing everything from dogs and cats to horses, goats, ferrets, snakes and even the occasional rooster! Prior to becoming a veterinarian, I worked as a small animal kennel attendant and then technician for 7 years at a large hospital in Illinois. I received my Bachelors in Biology from Blackburn College, a private liberal arts school in Carlinville, Illinois.
I moved to Prescott at the beginning of 2017 in order to join the PAH team and continue my passion for all creatures great and small. My professional interests include: small animal surgery, exotic and large animal medicine, as well as hospice care. Outside of work I enjoy traveling, outdoor adventures, Cross Fit, kickboxing and live trivia. I also enjoy spending time with my animals: two cats named Tim and Charlie who came with me from Ireland and two dogs; Jesta and Dakota both whom are American.
Why did I become a veterinarian?
Ever since I can remember animals have been a part of my life! I was always bringing home strays, rescuing wildlife and trying to care for them. It wasn’t until I experienced the loss of my best fur friend that I realized becoming a veterinarian was my calling. Not only do I want to help ease the pain of a pet crossing the rainbow bridge, but also preserve the joy and happiness animals bring to people by providing quality care, education and medicine. No greater satisfaction is felt than seeing an animal returned to its owner after being treated in the hospital; butt wiggles and smiles for everyone!
I called in first thing a Monday morning for an appointment because our cat, Mowgli, was lethargic and obviously not feeling well. They were able to schedule him in that same morning. What a relief! Thank you staff and Dr. Sarah for making Mowgli (and us) feel special. We all love everyone there! -Bonnie L.
