Dr. Tara Hudye was raised on a farm near Kamsack Saskatchewan until attending The University of Regina in 1996. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in 2000 and graduated from Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. Throughout her veterinary career she had developed an interest in musculoskeletal ailments, in particular the aging pet family member. On a search for offering additional therapeutics, she obtained her certification of canine rehabilitation from the University of Tennessee in 2012. Focusing on this specialty has created numerous opportunities such as lecturing at the Saskatchewan Vet Tech Conference (2012), co-ordinating canine fitness classes and sport seminars. Most importantly, it has allowed her to add quality of life to many patients in new ways she never thought previously possible, such as fitting dogs with prosthetic limbs, rehabilitating intervertebral disc disease dogs to walk and function and ordering carts for paraplegic dogs so they can explore their world once again. Every case she sees is so unique and she loves the opportunity to work with the owners to achieve a common goal – increase function and quality of life for their beloved family member.
