Dr. Tammie Tan

Veterinary Associate

Tammie’s favourite activity growing up was fussing over her dogs when she wasn’t trying to rescue injured wildlife and stray cats.
Shortly after the passing of her family’s two golden retrievers, she moved to Perth to focus on her dream of becoming a vet so that she could help all animals in a way that she hadn’t been able to before. She proudly graduated from Murdoch University in 2017 and has worked in several small animal practices in Perth. Her professional interests include pain and arthritis management in conjunction with behaviour and soft tissue surgery.

Tammie believes that all animals should be afforded the best quality of life possible, and this is evident in the lifestyle of her pampered pet Maya who was adopted as a puppy and is now living her own rags-to-riches story.
