Meet our wonderful doctors: 

Dr. Tamara Lutz


Dr. Lutz started her career in veterinary medicine at age 4, when she "bandaged" her pet cat up with masking tape!! Her parents knew, then, they better start preparing for her higher education. 

In 2002, Dr. Lutz finished her veterinary degree at the U of I in Urbana-Champaign. While there, she definitely learned how to apply a proper bandage, but also realized she had a passion for education clients on the best care possible for their pets. 

Dr. Lutz and her husband, Brandon, have 4 human children: Angel (20), Abbie (17), Zane (4), & Zac (2). They have a big chocolate lab, named Thor, who is absolutely terrified of thunder and lightning (go figure!), a black mutt, named Valentine, two kitties, Nemo & Ciley, and a very spoiled Guinea Pig, named Jarvis. They spend their time camping, watching, and playing a variety of sports, and just enjoying their big crazy family.
