Dr. Sam Elder


Dr. Elder grew up in Valley Center, graduated from Kansas State College of Veterinary Medicine and is thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to serve the community he calls home. After graduating from vet school, he and his wife, Natalie, settled in Greenville, SC near her family for almost five years where he was an associate veterinarian in a progressive small animal practice. During his time there, Dr. Elder pursued additional training in veterinary dentistry and dermatology. He emphasizes regular wellness care as the best way to keep your animal companions healthy, and he has special interests in pain management and geriatric care.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Elder enjoys spending time with his wife, their two energetic boys, and their little girl. You may find Dr. Elder sipping coffee, reading, playing the piano, riding a horse, cooking, hunting with his brothers, or exploring the great outdoors with his family. Beatrix, the family’s dog, spends her days herding the boys and attempting to herd their cats (Flower, Kristof, Orville, and Wilbur).
