At Pets First, we’re very proud of our fine veterinarians and staff. We strive to make your and your pets time at our offices friendly and as stress-free as possible. We look forward to meeting you and your pet. Here’s a short introduction of the caring veterinarians you will meet when you visit Pets First Animal Hospital with locations in Ft Myers, FL.
Dr. Sara Guillen is originally from Los Angeles, California, but as a teenager moved to Northwest Arkansas. Dr. Guillen received her Bachelors Degree in Animal Science with a minor in Equine Science and Spanish at the University of Arkansas –Fayetteville. She went on to earn her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Louisiana State University. Dr. Guillen joined our team for our long-standing reputation within community and for the talented doctors she gets to work and learn from. Her professional interests include preventative medicine and surgery (spay/neuters, dental, etc). Her short-term goals are to acquire skills in non-invasive diagnostics such as ultrasonography, as well as staying up to date on the latest research and medical advances to better improve her patients daily life. During her free time, she enjoys being outdoors doing activities such as hiking, kayaking, or being out by the beach. However, on rainy days, you will find her tending to her lanai garden with her rabbit, Jack, and her two cats, Pete and Grace.
