Dr. Dowling is Gunston Animal Hospital's ultrasound specialist who also provides internal medicine services.
Dr. Dowling is an East Coast native but relocated to the Midwest as a child. She knew from a young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian but specifically fell in love with internal medicine while obtaining her veterinary degree from the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana in 2011. In 2012, she completed a rotating small animal internship at the University of Minnesota. She then went on to complete a three-year residency in small animal internal medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. After becoming board-certified (and with her parents living in Annapolis, MD), Dr. Dowling returned to the East Coast. She practiced in Lancaster, PA until 2020, then moved to the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area where she continued practicing in Rockville, MD prior to joining MOVES in early 2021.
Dr. Dowling is excited to offer high-quality and convenient internal medicine services to family veterinarians, owners, and patients in the NoVA area. She enjoys implementing a team approach with owners and family veterinarians to ensure seamless care for her patients.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys spending time outdoors with her boyfriend, cooking, kayaking, and making pottery. She has 2 dogs (Dexter and Corbin), 2 cats (Mia and Delilah), and a very opinionated parrot (Sammy).
