Tara Card BBA BVMS MRCVS grew up in the Midwest of America surrounded by dairy cattle and caring for the barn cats on her grandparent’s farm. She knew she wanted to heal and save all animals by the age of 5. She completed a Business degree at the University of Wisconsin, USA in 1998, however, she spent many years working abroad and volunteering her time in underdeveloped countries along with spay and neuter schemes on islands around the world. She qualified from the University of Glasgow Veterinary School in 2009 and has since practiced in Scotland, America and England. She has thoroughly enjoyed working with a multitude of small animal infectious diseases in all countries and has now settled with her family in the Midlands. She is currently obtaining her Advanced Veterinary Practice status in Small Animal Medicine and Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia through the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Medicine. She has a particular love for challenging skin cases and backyard farm pets. Her favourite rescue hen, Queen Elizabeth (pictured left) is part of the family. When she isn’t healing and saving, she spends most of her time with her family and chauffeuring her two daughters to dance and athletics. She also resides with her loving rescue cats; King Arthur, Peanut and Bob. The family recently said a peaceful goodbye to her 18-year-old rescue dog Zuni.
