MISSOURI TRAILBLAZERS: SUZANNE SAUERESSIG
Honored as “Woman Veterinarian of the Year” in 1972, German-born Dr. Suzanne Saueressig is credited with the progression of Missouri’s Humane Society - City Headquarters clinic, which is one of the Midwest’s largest veterinary practices. A lifelong advocate for ending animal suffering and pet overpopulation, Dr. Saueressig was a pioneer for bringing awareness to these problems and improving surgical methods. Additionally, as Missouri’s first female veterinarian, she has been an inspiration for both young women and immigrants in Missouri, showing them that anything is possible.
