Dr. Tanja Bihr is an Associate Veterinarian at the Wellesley Veterinary Clinic.
She graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island, and completed a one year equine internship outside of London, Ontario, before she arrived in Wellesley.
Dr. Bihr’s family is in Riverview, New Brunswick, but she has come to love south-western Ontario and the people here, and has chosen to set down roots here. She lives with 2 beloved furry feline kids, food-obsessed, and super affectionate 16-year old Chubbs, and opinionated and diva-like 11-year old Chloe. In Dr. Bihr’s spare time, she is very much a fan of the outdoors and enjoys hiking and backpacking, as well as reading novels, watching movies, and spending time with friends. Dr. Bihr splits her time between treating small companion animals in Wellesley, and working with equine companions for the Milverton-Wellesley Veterinary Services.
There was never any question as to what Dr. Bihr would be doing with her life. She grew up in Germany and knew from the time she was a very small child doing pretend-surgeries on her stuffed animals that she wanted to be a doctor for animals. Dr. Bihr never waivered in the pursuit of her dream, and managed to complete a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees before ending her schooling with a DVM degree and an internship. Dr. Bihr grew up with dogs and horses throughout her childhood and youth, and she has had feline roommates since her university days. Dr. Bihr is a compassionate veterinarian and cares very much about the welfare, happiness, and well-being of her patients and their humans families. Dr. Bihr says she is very happy to work with an incredible team of support staff and fellow veterinarians at the Wellesley Veterinary Clinic.”
