Dr. Sarah Dugan, DVM

 

Dr. Sarah Dugan is a third-generation veterinarian from Emporia, Kansas, who grew up on a 20-acre farm with various dogs, cats & horses.

"I grew up showing horses," she said. "My favorite horse was Molly - a Golden Palomino. I rode horses every night and showed every weekend of the summer."

Dr. Dugan received her DVM degree from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003, then completed a 1-year Large Animal Medicine & Surgery internship at Texas A & M University the next year.

She practiced 2 years in Georgia with large & small animals before moving to Wichita where she focuses solely on small animal medicine. Dr. Dugan joined Animal Hospital at Auburn Hills in 2016.

Even though she's from a veterinary family, it wasn't the path she thought she'd take.

"I thought I wanted to be a math teacher," Dr. Dugan said.

She worked part-time in high school at her father's veterinary clinic - mostly cleaning kennels - until her senior year when she started as a receptionist.

 "I loved interacting with both the clients & their pets. I realized pretty quickly that I wanted to be a veterinarian."

Dr. Dugan said she's most passionate about making sure patient visits to the veterinarian are stress-free. Oftentimes that means peanut butter & Cheez Whiz are on the menu - which makes Dr. Dugan very popular!

Dr. Dugan & her Wichita-native husband Ryan have two children ages 13 and 12 who keep the family busy with soccer, basketball, cross country & gymnastics. They have "a handful" Chihuahua-Italian Greyhound Mix named Enzo who can jump sky-high!

Dr. Dugan is a member & past-member of several organizations including:

  • past president of the Wichita Veterinary Association (WMVA)
  • American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)
  • Veterinary Information Network (VIN)
  • Junior League of Wichita
  • parishioner at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church

Dr. Chelsey Terry practices veterinary medicine at Animal Hospital at Auburn Hills in Wichita, Kansas

Dr. Chelsey Terry

Dr. Chelsey Terry, DVM

Dr. Chelsey Terry is a perfect example that pets truly are family. Her 12-year-old Japanese Chin “Chulo” was ring bearer in her wedding.

“He pranced down the aisle carrying our rings, with a little tuxedo on,” she said. “He has passed since, but I loved that he stood by our side on such an important day.”

Dr. Terry received her DVM degree from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in May 2021 and joined Animal Hospital at Auburn Hills the next month.

Growing up in a small town east of Salina, Dr. Terry loved dozens of family pets - dogs, barn cats, fish, and a horse named “Shay”. After earning a bachelor’s degree from Kansas Wesleyan University, she pursued a Master’s degree at Emporia State University. 

But her career goals took a turn (for the better, in our opinion!) when she got a job as a receptionist at a nearby veterinary clinic in 2014.

“I got a part-time job at a local veterinary clinic and immediately fell in love with the field. I loved the detective work that the veterinarians did to diagnose and treat patients,” Dr. Terry said. “It inspired me so much that I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian just like them!”

That detective work is what she likes best about the profession, she said.

I like that veterinarians are able to use physical exam findings, history, their senses, and diagnostics to help treat and serve patients,’ she said. Which is why her philosophy is “to treat each pet as if they were my very own. Spoiled - and nothing but the best!”

At the end of the day, the spoiling comes easy for Dr. Terry with her rescued fur babies: “Samantha” the cat, Japanese Chins “Yoshi” & “Koji” and Shih Tzus “Charlotte” & “Ginger.”

“I am passionate about making my pets feel loved,” she said. “No matter how long of a day I have had or how many pets I have seen throughout the day, I always make it a point to love on my pets. Whether this is hugging each of them when I walk in the door, sitting on the floor just to be on their level or playing fetch with squeaky toys.”

She and her husband John, a financial advisor at Edward Jones, are also proud of their pet family.

“None of our animals are in any activities such as agility,” she said. “They can, however, all sit on command together, INCLUDING THE CAT!” she said. 

Dr. Terry said she is looking forward to connecting with the Wichita community.

“I’m eager to make a positive impact and really get to know clients from the clinic as well as my neighbors,” she said. “I’m excited to become a member of a local church and potentially their worship team. Maybe someday I would also like to ‘nerd out' and join Chamber Choir. I would also like to volunteer at the Kansas Humane Society.”

In her free time, Dr. Terry and her husband like to head outdoors.

“I love outdoor activities such as gardening, hiking, and fishing - especially in the Gulf of Mexico,” she said. “I’m addicted to antiquing - no, I’m not in denial. My husband and I love to travel and go to red-dirt country concerts. I love to sing and be a part of all things music - I used a vocal scholarship to pay for part of my undergraduate degree.”

Dr. Terry holds memberships and certifications in the following:

  • American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)
  • Kansas Veterinary Medical Association (KVMA)
  • Veterinary Information Network (VIN)
  • K-Laser Therapy Certification

" I was so relieved that Dr. Gary Stamps made time in his schedule to see her on such short notice. He was able to relieve my heart from the worries that I put in my head making me believe it was something very serious. He was super gentle & even got down on the floor with her at nearly eye level (as she laid completely flat on her belly trying to duck with nervousness) to make her more comfortable. A few tests & short time later we left with an affordable solution & more comfortable Maya. I wouldn’t use anyone else. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!!"
