VCA Asher Animal Hospital

Susan Tangeman, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of California, Davis


Dr. Tangeman graduated from the University of California College of Veterinary Medicine in Davis in 1988. After completing a large animal surgery internship at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, she returned to southern California to practice equine medicine. Soon she began to miss the north state and moved north to join a mixed animal practice. This led to a strong interest in small animal medicine and brought her to VCA Asher Animal Hospital in 1994. In 2003, she participated in the Don Low Practitioner Fellowship program at U.C. Davis in the ophthalmology department. Her cat�s name is Cecil and her chihuahua's name is Umi.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet.
