Dr. Sara Monahan


Dr. Monahan has been practicing veterinary medicine in the Northern Virginia area since 2001.  She received her undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Virginia and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.  She is also certified in veterinary acupuncture.

Dr. Monahan is very excited to join the Northern Virginia Veterinary Associates team at Centreville Square Animal Hospital and Chantilly Animal Hospital.  She has a special interest in preventative care,  geriatric care, and pain management.

She lives in Fairfax with her very vocal 16-year-old Siamese cat, Ivan.  She has a fondness for Great Danes.  Her most recent addition to the family is a 2-year-old rescue Dane named Sydney (Syd).  He is a gentle giant and such a character. He is the fourth Dane in the family.

In her free time, Dr. Monahan enjoys hiking, horseback riding, reading, travel, and watching movies, especially comedies starring Will Ferrell.
