Dr. Tanya S. Burtis, DVM
Dr. Burtis grew up in central Michigan, where she learned to care for the cows at the neighboring dairy farm, as well as many other animals through a strong 4H program. She went on to major in Biology and Psychology, with a minor in Biochemistry, and concentrations in Political Science and Theatre at Hope College in Western Michigan, then graduated from Michigan State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. She and her new family then moved to North Carolina and she began as an associate veterinarian with Dr. Tapley in 1997. She now owns the practice, and is dedicated to continually offer the best medicine to all of our clients' pets for their entire lifetime. Dr. Burtis has completed advanced training in ultrasonography, echocardiography, dental procedures, emergency medicine, and many more areas, all of which she thoroughly enjoys because they help better serve her patients and clients. She lives here in Waxhaw with her husband and three children, two dogs, and one cat. She loves quiet time at home when she is not at the hospital or busy with the family, and helping to decide lines of high quality, veterinary-approved pet products for Reigning Cats & Dogs Pet Boutique.
