Dr. Sterling Sigmond

Sterling Sigmond, DVM

Growing up in Naples, Sterling knew that her passion for animals would lead her to one day be a veterinarian. She attended the University of Florida, and in 3 years graduated with Honors, receiving a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. She then attended the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine and received her doctorate.

Throughout her college years she worked as a veterinary technician, volunteered in the equine neonatal hospital, participated in feral cat spay/neuter programs (Operation CatNip) and was a member of P.A.W.S (Pets are Wonderful Support), a group of students and veterinarians dedicated to providing veterinary healthcare for the pets or the elderly and terminally ill. Upon graduating veterinary school, Sterling was eager to return home to the Naples community that encouraged her. She has been practicing veterinary medicine in Naples since 2004.

Her goal is health and wellness, keeping our Naples Coastal pets healthier, happier, and longer. In 2017 she opened a state of the art medical and surgical veterinary facility, giving Naples pet owners quality care and personalized service. By opening Naples Coastal Animal Hospital, she is fulfilling her personal and professional dreams. She looks forward to meeting you and your pets!
