Tamie Hunt had the pleasure of graduating from the 2 best universities in Texas; The University of Texas, and Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has a strong interest in wellness, internal medicine, feline medicine and geriatrics. In starting this mobile veterinary business, she hopes to decrease the stress of veterinary visits by allowing the pet to remain in the comfort of their own home. This can be especially helpful for cats who become stressed just going for a car ride. She is working to be certified in acupuncture this coming year to supplement her treatment options. She is a member of American Veterinary Medical Association, Texas Veterinary Medical Association, American Associate of Feline Practitioners
