Dr. Tan knew from an early age that she wanted to be a veterinarian, so she was fortunate to be accepted into the Early Entry Program at Mississippi State University, where she earned her veterinary degree in 2004. She moved to Los Angeles for her internship at Animal Surgical and Emergency Center and continued to practice emergency medicine in California afterward. In 2008, she returned closer to home and practiced emergency and general medicine in NYC before joining Mineola Animal Hospital.

Dr. Tan has also been the veterinarian for Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl for the past several years! This televised event is aired every year on Super Bowl Sunday.
