Florida and Mid-Atlantic States
Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised on Long Island, NY, Dr. Langsam was brought up in the thoroughbred industry, visiting many racetracks around the country and spending most weekends at either Belmont, Aqueduct, or Saratoga rooting her family’s horses across the wire. It was really no stretch of the imagination when she decided to become an equine veterinarian.
Dr. Langsam received her Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University in 1998, majoring in Animal Science, and in 2002, she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. While in vet school, Dr. Langsam worked in the Sports Medicine department at New Bolton Center, assisting with both lameness and treadmill exams and doing research involving upper airway conditions in horses. Following graduation, she completed a year long internship at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, KY, gaining invaluable experience working alongside many top specialists in a high caseload setting.
Dr. Langsam joined Teigland, Franklin, and Brokken, DVMs in July of 2003 and became a partner in 2009. She divides her time between Delaware Park during the spring, summer and fall and Gulfstream Park during the winter. Her main interests are in lameness evaluations, radiology, ultrasound, upper airway problems and pre-purchase exams. She enjoys her annual trip to the Keeneland September Thoroughbred Yearling Auction to do pre-purchase evaluations for our clients.
When not working, Sara enjoys taking photographs, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and hanging out with her yellow lab, Bridget, and two cats, Simon and Leo.
