Dr. Tracey Sasher
DVM, CVA, CCRP, CVTP
Dr. Sasher is an Atlanta native who earned her DVM from the University of Georgia in 2002. Her experience in training performance dogs for agility and field work led to her interest in conditioning and fitness for dogs and therapeutic exercise to rehabilitate injuries for working dogs, and ultimately led to her enrollment in the Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner program at the University of Tennessee in 2003 and her certification in 2004.
She also had the opportunity to work with a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist while a student at UGA and knew that becoming certified in veterinary acupuncture was also a goal after graduation. She finished her TCVM training at the Chi Institute in 2004 and certified in veterinary acupuncture and Tui -Na.
Dr. Sasher joined PRAH in 2010. She and Dr. Winokur share duties in holistic medicine at Pharr Road, offering rehabilitation, acupuncture, pain management, food therapy and obesity management for working dogs and our beloved senior pets.
Dr. Sasher is especially dedicated to the special bond that exists between people and animals, and the role that they play in our lives as companions, working and therapy teammates. She is an advocate for positive training methods and encourages clients to be lifetime learners with their companion animals.
Dr. Sasher’s family includes three cats and an American Staffordshire Terrier rescue.
She has a special interest in herbal and food therapy, behavior medicine, fitness and conditioning for performance dogs and operant conditioning training methods and geriatric medicine.
