An experienced small animal veterinarian and Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, Dr. Tara Rittle’s practice philosophy focuses on preventative medicine, client education, and working with pet owners to assist them in making the best decisions for their pets. Palliative and hospice care are areas of special interest as well.
A native of Palmyra, Pennsylvania, she attended University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and completed an internship in Wildlife and Conservation Medicine at Tufts. She remained in Massachusetts treating small animal and exotic pets before relocating to Atlanta in 2007.
Dr. Tara was honored in Atlanta Magazine’s 2010 Pet Edition as a ‘Best Exotics Vet’, but has since limited her practice to cats and dogs. She received her training and certification in Veterinary Acupuncture in 2010 and joined PHAH in 2013.
In her free time, Tara enjoys cooking, supporting local restaurants, yoga, adventure travel, and reading.
Dr. Tara shares her Buckhead home with two cats, Dimi and Gus; a Hairless Chinese Crested dog, Wizard; and two leopard tortoises, Mortimer and Frank.
