Sarah Dugan DVM grew up in Emporia, Kansas on a farm with 20 acres of land and a variety of animals. Her participation in 4-H as a child gave her experience with dogs, horses, and sheep. She especially enjoyed training and showing horses and dogs. One fond memory includes her favorite mare, Good Golly Miss Molly, whom she showed in a trail class. 'She tried to spell out her name with the logs!'
While in high school, Dr. Dugan worked part time at her father's mixed animal practice in Emporia. 'When I got promoted to working as a receptionist, I realized I really enjoyed working with clients and their pets, and I decided I wanted to be a veterinarian.' Dr. Dugan's decision made her a third generation veterinarian as she comes from a long line of veterinarians including her grandfather, grandfather's brother, father, father's brother, older brother, and sister-in-law.
Dr. Dugan received her DVM from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 and completed a year-long Large Animal Medicine and Surgery internship at Texas A&M University. She then spent two years practicing medicine in Thomasville, GA before moving to Wichita. She has been practicing in the Wichita area for 16 years and joined Oakcrest Pet Hospital in 2022.
Dr. Dugan and her husband, Ryan, a Wichita native, have two children, Max, 16 and Liza, 14. 'We are busy with family,' she says, 'following sports, school activities, and family events in Wichita and Emporia.' Their family also includes two dogs: Enzo, a Chihuahua/Italian greyhound mix ('who can jump waist high') and Portsy, a Jack Russell terrier ('cute, loving, but not the sharpest knife in the drawer').
Dr. Dugan has a special interest in small animal medicine, dentistry and dermatology. She is a member or past member of several professional and community organizations including:
Past president of the Wichita Veterinary Association
American Veterinary Medical Association
Veterinary Information Network
Junior League of Wichita
Parishioner at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church
