Bio: Dr. Amanda Tallant grew up outside of Atlanta. During her high school years, she spent her spare time working to raise
awareness and donations for the local Humane Society, which
led to her Girl Scout Gold Award and eventually adopting her
first rescue dog.
She then attended the first college in the world chartered to
grant degrees to women, Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia.
There she earned her bachelor’s degree, was awarded an Energy
Research Fellowship in Sequim, Washington and participated in
the Osaka University Student Exchange Program in Japan.
Moving from Pacific Islands to Caribbean Islands, Dr. Tallant
attended Ross University. There she received her Doctorate of
Veterinary Medicine, the Hills Community Service Award for her
work with People for Animal Welfare and the local Girl Guides,
and adopted another rescue dog.
After completing her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree,
she moved to a slightly different island and completed a one
year rotating internship followed by a one year surgical
internship both at Long Island Veterinary Specialists. There she
learned how to perform basic surgeries and assisted with more
advanced procedures. She also adopted another rescue dog.
Following this she returned to university life at the University of Saskatchewan, Western College of Veterinary Medicine as the Small Animal Surgery Clinical Associate. There she was responsible for teaching final year Veterinary Students how to perform spays and neuters. They say learning by teaching others is the best education, but she also learned that -40 degree C is the same as -40 degree F and how to throw a curling stone.
She was then accepted into the university’s intense three year
residency and master’s program where she earned her Master’s
of Veterinary Science in Small Animal Surgery for research in pain perception intra-operatively and post-operatively. She won the Resident of the Year award for 2013-2014 and adopted another
rescue dog.
Dr. Tallant is currently relocating from New Mexico where she
adopted yet another rescue dog. In her spare time, Dr. Tallant enjoys watching documentaries, hanging out with her five dogs, online shopping, going out for dinner, golfing, yoga, and travel.
