Team Almeida

Sam Almeida

DVM, Diplomate ACVECC

Critical Care

Dr. Sam Almeida received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Oklahoma State University in 2016. She then completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Minnesota, followed by an emergency/critical care specialty internship to solidify her passion for the field. After meeting her future husband at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Almeida decided to stay in St. Paul for her emergency/critical care residency, becoming board-certified in emergency and critical care after completing her training in 2021.

Dr. Almeida's professional interests include polytrauma, coagulopathies, multi-modal pain management and post-operative care. She is passionate about patient care and mitigating the unspoken, psychological stressors our pets might feel during a long ICU stay. Outside of work, Dr. Almeida enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs (Froggert and Tater Tot), hiking, traveling, and amateur bird watching.
