Dr. Tag has been practicing exclusively at emergency referral practices since entering veterinary medicine. Her favorite part of this job is helping people, whether owners, the referring veterinary community or co-workers, understand the best way to apply a patient’s diagnostic and treatment options to achieve the owner’s goal given the complexities of the case and situation. When Dr. Tag is not working at Pet+ER, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Rene’, two kids, Ali and Eli, relaxing at a local vineyard with live music, swimming, gardening, or just being outside with their two dogs and three horses and many chickens!
