Sarah Israel, DVM, DACVS

Dr. Israel is a native Texan that received her DVM from Texas A&M University in 2005 and completed her residency in small animal surgery at Texas A&M University in 2009.

Dr. Israel’s passion for veterinary medicine was fostered as a young child where she grew up with a variety of animals including goats, chickens, horses, dogs, and everything in between. She works at Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital and has performed numerous orthopedic and life-saving surgical procedures for SNIPSA rescues. Her specialty is total hip replacements which is a refined and sought-after skill. She married her “sweetheart” from veterinary school who also owns and operates two veterinary hospitals in the Helotes area. She is the proud mother of two children who enjoy spending time outdoors in nature. She can be found riding her beloved horse, Pearl, with her daughter or fishing in Rockport with her son and husband. Dr. Israel is a faithful surgeon at our Big Fix clinics and a practical sounding board for our organization.
