Dr. Jane Sayler, DVM

Dr. Jane Sayler has been in small animal practice since her graduation from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1979. Dr. Sayler established the West Frederick Veterinary Hospital in 1983 at the Stonegate Business Center on Route 40 West.

Dr. Sayler lives in Middletown with her husband. She enjoys antiques, interior design, and spending time with her three sons and two granddaughters.

Dr. Emily Rizzo, DVM
Veterinarian

Dr. Rizzo knew she wanted to be a veterinarian by the time she was five years old. She spent much of her childhood with the family dogs, cats, horses, and fish. Dr. Rizzo was raised in South Florida, where she obtained both her bachelor’s and veterinary degrees. After graduation, she moved to Maryland for a change in pace (and change in seasons). Dr. Rizzo joined West Frederick Veterinary Hospital in July 2019 and has special interests in ophthamology and soft tissue surgery.

When not in the clinic, Dr. Rizzo likes to stay fit by going to the gym, hiking, and horseback riding. She also enjoys cooking, watching sports, trying new craft beers, and spending time with her two crazy cats, Jupiter and Groot.

Dr. Lisa Hennings, DVM
Veterinarian

Dr. Hennings started her veterinary career in the 5th grade when during an ‘interview’ with a veterinarian for school she almost passed out from the sight of a dog’s lacerated bleeding paw. Fortunately, she has come a long way since then. Dr. Hennings grew up in Ringwood, NJ, and attended Pennsylvania State University for her undergraduate studies. She continued her education at the University of Florida where she obtained her veterinary degree. Following graduation, she was granted a one year internship at the prestigious Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus, NJ. She was then selected to fill a two year staff veterinarian position at this hospital. Dr. Hennings then returned to Florida where she practiced small animal medicine and surgery for three years while her husband completed his veterinary degree in equine medicine. She enjoys internal medicine and critical care cases.

Outside of veterinary medicine she enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, going to the beach, and cheering on the Nittany Lions and Florida Gators. She shares her home with her husband, sons, and a crew of crazy dogs.

Dr. Keith Krebs, DVM
Veterinarian

Dr. Krebs earned a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and performed research at The Hershey Medical Center and The National Institutes of Health for 13 years. He then attended The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating summa cum laude in 1997. After completing an internship in medicine and surgery at The VCA Veterinary Referral Associates in Gaithersburg, Dr. Krebs was the Medical Director of two VCA hospitals for 6 years.

Dr. Krebs enjoys treating dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, reptiles, and pocket pets. He and his wife, Melissa, have adopted 6 children and live on an 18th century farm with dairy goats, chickens, horses, dogs, cats, and parrots.

In his spare time, Dr. Krebs enjoys hiking, gardening, playing music, and making goat cheese.

Dr. Ann Hahn, DVM, CVA
Veterinarian, Certified Veterinary Accupuncturist

Dr. Hahn, a second-generation veterinarian, graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1997, and began her career working at a mixed animal practice in Maine. From there, she moved to Germany to care for pets owned by U.S. military families. Dr. Hahn and her fiancé (now husband), an army veterinarian, moved to Seattle in 2002 and have since lived and worked in five states across the country. She and her husband are now settling down in Maryland as her husband retires from the army and transitions to civilian practice.

Always wanting to learn more, Dr. Hahn became certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2010, and canine rehabilitation therapy in 2014. Her special interests include preventative medicine, pain management, and hospice care.

In her spare time, Dr. Hahn enjoys renovating her Carroll county home, knitting socks, and traveling. She and her husband live to serve their 3 cats and are looking forward to adding a new puppy to the family.
