GEDC1398_1.JPGDr. Tamara Albin

Veterinarian - Owner

Albin Animal Hospital was established in January of 2001

Dr. Tammy as she is known to most of her clients is a fantastic doctor, her deep devotion and care is what has built this clinic into what it is today. Dr. Albin has 6 dogs, and 1 cat. Dr. Albin's favorite breed of dog is the Schnauzer.

When you walk into Albin Animal Hospital you will always notice a quilt hanging on the wall in the offices. Dr. Albin enjoys quilting in her spare time. She has learned this trade from her mother and has pasted down the creative side to her daughter.

This remarkable woman is mother to 4 children (Zach, Kaylin, Jacob and Grant). Her dogs include, Theo (Giant schnauzer), Jack (Chihuahua), Veta (Kerry Blue Terrier),Grady (Brussels Griffon) and CC (Chihuahua), Lola (French Bulldog).  We of course cannot forget the 1 and only cat Buxton!

Dr. Albin is originally from Florida and graduated from the University of Missouri Columbia School of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.

Dr. Albin has other hobbies besides quilting she enjoys reading and traveling with her family.

The most wonderful thing about being a veterinarian is the care you get to give to the animals. Dr. Albin also wants to extend a thank you to all of her dedicated employees and wonderful clients because without you we would not have a successful business.

In recent news:  Zach is now a United States Marine stationed in Japan, we are all very proud of him. and Kaylin has started her college career at Truman University in Missouri in 2016. Kaylin is going to follow her mothers footsteps and become a veterinarian.

They go above and beyond. They not only helped me with my guinea pigs more than I expected, but they made me and my son feel like we were part of the family there.
