Meet the Vets: Dr. Talbot

Dr. Sara Talbot

Dr. Talbot considers herself a Greensboro native, having lived in the area since she was 3 years old. Her studies took her away from Greensboro for several years, but she didn’t stray far, receiving her Bachelor of Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill followed by her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University. Upon completion of her DVM, Dr. Talbot moved back to the Greensboro area to pursue a year-long rotating small animal internship focusing on internal medicine, surgery, and emergency medicine from the local referral hospital, Carolina Veterinary Specialists. Following her internship, Dr. Talbot filled in at Stoney Creek occasionally and was thrilled to have the opportunity to return full-time a few years later in March of 2014.

Dr. Talbot and her husband, also a veterinarian, married in 2010 and welcomed a son in 2012 and daughter in 2015 to complete their human family. They currently share their home with just 1 dog, although she says that they are likely to add another 4-legged friend to the family soon. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, playing soccer and volleyball, hiking and baking.

Dr. Talbot admits that her favorite part of being a veterinarian is the variety. Everyday is different with new cases, new people and new pets. If she could give one piece of advice to every pet owner, it would be to not let your pet get overweight! It is so hard to get them to lose weight once they’ve packed on the pounds, and even a few extra pounds is so detrimental to their health over the course of their lifetime.
