Tamara Jacobson, DVM, Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Tamara Jacobson was raised in the Bay Area and studied sociology and history at the University of California, Davis. After college, she worked in sports and entertainment marketing and completed an international business credential at Cambridge University in the UK.
She soon realized that veterinary medicine was where her heart was.
This change in direction eventually led her to the University of Minnesota, where she obtained her veterinary degree and won an award from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine for clinical excellence. Following vet school, Dr. Jacobson moved to Denver to complete a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at VCA Alameda East Veterinary Hospital. She is excited to be part of the VCA Madera Pet Hospital team! Her interests include critical care, dentistry, internal medicine, wound management, and pain management.
Outside of work, Dr. Jacobson enjoys concerts, sports events, hiking, rock climbing, good food, her adorable nieces, and her two mischievous cats.
