Hi, I’m Dr. Sarah Boston!

From veterinary surgical oncology and telemedicine consulting to writing satire and doing stand-up comedy, you’ve come to the right place! I look forward to meeting you, helping you, inspiring you, and making you laugh.

I am a veterinary cancer surgeon and cancer survivor. Ironic, right?

I’m a veterinary surgical oncologist, published author, and cancer survivor. My first book, Lucky Dog: How Being a Veterinarian Saved My Life, was published by the House of Anansi Press in 2014 and made the bestsellers list for Canadian nonfiction. I am also an aspiring comedian and have completed my first screenplay. Recently, I co-founded The Cageliner, a satirical newspaper for veterinary peeps. Want to get to know more about me?

Lucky Dog is a memoir about what it’s like to go through the human health care system, wishing you could get treated as well as a dog. Lucky Dog is a funny book about cancer. It will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time, most of the time out loud.
