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, that 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 to best extend the lives of their pet family members.

Dr. Lutz and her husband, Brandon, have 4 human children: Angel, Abbie, Zane, and Zac. In the past 2 years, they have also acquired 2 new son-in-laws, Coltin and Taylor. They have a big Chocolate Lab, named Thor, who is absolutely terrified of thunder and lightning (go figure!), a one-eyed Pug, named Pikachu, three indoor kitties, Nemo, Roman Kane, and Weird Al, two outside cats, Captain and Kofi, 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 crazy family!
