Emergency Veterinary Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day


Sarah Nixon

I've been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. Throughout my life, I have had cats, dogs, hamsters, fish, chickens, many many rabbits, and even a hedgehog! I currently have a kitten of my own, a white Ragdoll named Casper, who resembles the Friendly Ghost in more ways than one. I am currently in school for Psychology with hopes to work in the Therapy field - with a special interest in Animal Assisted Therapy! Although I've never worked in a vet clinic until now, I've always had a passion for working with them, and am so excited that I am finally getting this experience. When I'm not at work you can find me either at home with my floof of a cat, or you can find me exploring the beaches and forests that the island has to offer.
