Meet The Team!

Dr. Tamara Lutz


Dr. Lutz started her career in veterinary medicine at age 4, when she "bandaged" her pet cat 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 educating clients on the best care possible for their pets! She loves practicing in Pana and helping people learn how best to extend the lives of their pet family members.

Dr. Lutz and her husband, Brandon, have 4 hu-man children: Angel, Abbie, Zane, & Zac. They have a big chocolate lab, named Thor, who is absolutely terrified of thunder and lightning (go figure!), a one eyed Pug, named Pikachu, two kitties, Nemo & Roman Kane, a bearded dragon, named Rex, and a box turtle, named Shelly. They spend their time camping, watching and playing a variety of sports, and just enjoying their big cray family!
