Susan Tanhauser, DVM, PhD

Dr. Tanhauser spent her childhood years in southern California and teen years in northern Virginia.  Despite a life-long love of all animals, Dr. Tanhauser obtained a PhD in molecular biology and was a researcher for several years before deciding to study veterinary medicine.

The diagnosis of her first horse, Charlie, with Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM) contributed to her career change.  She was accepted to veterinary school and became a member of a research team that performed some of the early research on EPM.   She graduated from  the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 with high honors and several published papers on EPM.  

Dr. Tanhauser is a member of  the American Association of Equine Practitioners, Florida Association of Equine Practitioners and a Courtesy Assistant Professor of the University of Florida College of  Veterinary Medicine.  She is currently studying acupuncture at the Chi Institute in Reddick, FL, with plans to become certified in both small animal and equine acupuncture.  Dr. Tanhauser’s special interests are challenging medicine cases, reproduction,  equine dentistry and acupuncture.
