Dr. Leslie Sanders grew up in New Jersey and decided at a very young age, while treating her stuffed animals that she wanted to become a veterinarian. She followed her passion and graduated from the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and is a member of the AVMA, AAHA and NCVMA.
Dr. Sanders joined the Quail Corners Animal Hospital team in 2018 and enjoys making a difference and educating pet owners on the best welfare for their pets to ensure a long, happy and healthy life. She has special interests in internal medicine, pain management and senior pet welfare. One of Dr. Sanders’ most memorable cases was for a Husky with poor hair regrowth after a surgical procedure. She suspected the pet had Cushing’s disease but after further diagnostics were conducted, she proved the pet had an estrogen-producing adrenal tumor. Dr. Sanders treated the pet with oral medications over three years resulting in hair regrowth to a normal coat and Cushing’s symptoms resolved.
Dr. Sanders lives in Holly Springs with her husband and three young boys and has a senior kitty named Jezabelle. When Dr. Sanders is not working she enjoys spending time with family, traveling, baking and watching hockey (she's a huge fan of the Philadelphia Flyers).
