Jenny Tarr, DVM
Dr. Jenny Tarr is a native of Indiana. Ever since she was a small child, she had the goal of becoming a veterinarian. As a child, she was drawn to the profession because of a love for animals and as an adult, this attraction was strengthened because of a love for the people attached to those animals. Dr. Tarr graduated from Butler University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and minors in Chemistry and Business Administration. She went on to attend Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2007.
Dr. Tarr moved to Hawaii in 2008 and worked in both Kaneohe and Waipahu. In 2016 she decided to try something new and was commissioned into the United States Army Veterinary Corps. She spent three years stationed on Naval Base Kitsap in Washington State providing veterinary care to military working dogs and participating in public health and food defense missions.
The Army was a rewarding experience, but Dr. Tarr missed her friends and family in Hawaii too much to stay away. She is excited to be back in Hawaii and joining PetVet Animal Hospital. Dr. Tarr has special interests in emergency medicine, critical care, and surgery. In her spare time, she enjoys running, hiking, and watching Butler University Basketball in the company of her husband and cats (Boo and Rumple).
