Dr. Samantha Scher, DVM

Dr. Samantha Scher is a Florida girl, born and raised. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Florida in 2004 and went on to graduate from the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. Shortly after graduation, she attended the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine where she studied small animal acupuncture.

After practicing in Lake Worth, Florida for a year, Dr. Scher took a “leap of faith” and moved to Northern Virginia. She worked in Manassas for two years before joining Ballston Animal Hospital in August 2013.

In her free time, Dr. Scher enjoys going to the beach, hanging out with friends, playing softball, traveling to Florida to visit her family, and watching college football. GO GATORS!!! She lives in Alexandria with her husband and two dogs – a Welsh Corgi named Lily and a YorkiPoo named Barkley.

Ballston Animal Hospital remains open and available – we have transitioned to drop-off appointments for the time being. We remain committed to providing you with excellent care while doing our part to promote health and wellness in our community. Updates and more information on safety protocols can be found here
