Sarah Foote, DVM, went to the University of Wisconsin for both her undergraduate degree in biology and her veterinary degree. In fact, she is a fourth generation UW grad and a huge Wisconsin sports fan. (Go Badgers!!) A small animal rotating internship brought her to the University of Minnesota.

Dr. Foote’s mother is also a primary care veterinarian in Milwaukee, so she grew up alongside and was inspired by her mom’s love of animals. When asked what’s she’s most passionate about, Dr. Foote responds, “I find the human-animal bond extremely important; it’s why I am a veterinarian! What keeps me going is maintaining a pet’s health so that their relationship as a companion to their person(s) isn’t compromised!”

Dr. Foote has 3 pets: Nellie – a dilute calico domestic shorthair who she rescued during a spay clinic in veterinary school; Breese – a Pudelpointer and her running and hiking buddy and Chance – a Hanoverian gelding with whom she competes in dressage.
