Sara’s journey in veterinary medicine began in a traditional small animal practice, where she discovered her passion for working with animals along with a natural inclination for embracing new challenges. Motivated to expand her knowledge and skill set beyond conventional boundaries, she delved into the field of veterinary nutrition, honing functional and technical expertise in promoting health through nutrition and developing a talent for simplifying complex concepts into effective, accessible strategies.
Throughout her career, Dr. Ritzie has demonstrated an unwavering dedication to volunteer work, with a strong affinity for improving access to care, and supporting underserved communities across Ontario and abroad. In 2023, she embarked on her DVSc Residency, which encompasses a clinical focus on community outreach and facilitating access to veterinary care in vulnerable communities, and a research aspect defining financially sustainable models for expanding access to care. Her goal is to inspire positive change in the field of veterinary medicine, promoting the well-being of animals, communities, and veterinary teams while emphasizing the importance of accessible care.
