Tammy Owen, RVT

Practice Manager
Tammy feels very fortunate because she always knew that she wanted to work with animals in veterinary medicine. She attended Seneca College in 1988 for the AHT program, graduated in 1990, and wrote her RVT exam the same year. She joined the Champlain Animal Hospital team in 1995. Tammy's favourite thing about working at the hospital is being part of an amazing, dedicated and compassionate team that focuses on providing quality medicine and patient care to all wonderful clients. Her role includes client service, pharmacy technician, nutrition consultation, assisting other team members whenever needed for patient care, and maintaining the inventory.
