About Vet

Hello there!

My name is Dr. Tara and it would be my pleasure to help you and your animal family members.😀

In my 18 years as a veterinarian, I have enjoyed experiences in companion animal general practice, emergency/ICU practice, shelter medicine, regulatory medicine, international vet medicine, and mobile veterinary practice. I am excited to be adding telemedicine to the list as I feel I can help pet parents access veterinary care that they may not otherwise be able to.

I am a companion animal vet practicing with a conscious, compassionate, and collaborative philosophy and approach.

I am here to listen to your concerns, and work with you to address them in a way that works not only for your pet, but for you. I offer a non-judgemental, inclusive, and trauma-informed approach that values the knowledge and dedication of pet parents; I see you and the love you have for your pet. I know that they have been your lifeline; I know how important they are to you. I also know that life holds significant stressors and challenges for all of us right now. Most of us are struggling in some way or another, and having a sick animal family member is more stressful than ever.

It is my hope to help ease your stress! Please consider booking an appointment with me if my approach resonates with you. When it comes to caring for your animal family members, we could make a great team! 💖
