Samantha Oswald

Dr. Oswald was born and raised in Barnwell, SC.   She graduated from Barnwell High School in 2013 and was named Miss Warhorse.  She then went on to Clemson University and graduated in 2017 with a B.S. in Animal and Veterinary Science.  She continued her education at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in the top 10 of her class in 2021.

'My love of veterinary medicine started early at my grandfather, Everette Sanders' house.  My sisters and I loved going to his house to ride, feed, care for and help the veterinarian with all his horses.'  Formerly Samantha Sanders or 'one of the twins',  always had  family pets ranging from hamsters to dogs and cats.    After undergraduate school she continued her education at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine.  Before graduation of veterinary school, she married her high school sweetheart, Jacob Oswald, in December of 2020.  They have a yellow Labrador retriever named Henry who goes everywhere with them (and was the 'best dog' in their wedding).  She currently lives in Allendale, SC on the Oswald family farm (JCO Farm).  In her spare time, Dr. Oswald loves being on the water, throwing the tennis ball with Henry, helping Jacob work on the farm, hanging out with friends, and being active in her church.  She is looking forward to being back in her hometown after being away for 8 years and helping and loving each of your fur-babies!
