Dr. Sarkar maintains a special interest in several aspects of anesthesia & analgesia, including pain management, locoregional anesthesia & analgesia, non-pharmacologic therapies for pain and rehabilitation, acupuncture, technician training, patient safety, respiratory physiology, critical care sedation, and feline medicine. Dr. Sarkar’s favorite part of practicing veterinary medicine is recognizing and respecting the scope of its impact on the world.

Dr. Sarkar is very interested in traditional Chinese medicine and the way it complements the management of pain, anxiety, and other conditions. She became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist after completing coursework and training at Chi University.

When she isn’t practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Sarkar enjoys cooking, baking, crafting, gardening, and painting.
