David Tamas, DVM
Veterinarian – Dr. Tamas graduated from North Carolina State’s Veterinary School in Raleigh, NC in 2019. Prior to this he completed his undergraduate years at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. Dr. Tamas likes being a vet because he can act as the go-to person for problems he can fix, and those fixes lead to animals feeling better. He has started working on his acupuncture license, which he kicked off by attending a 4-day workshop in China. During this trip he spent 2 weeks in China and was able to see all of the tourist sites including the Great Wall of China. Dr. Tamas has a very quiet and calming presence around animals which he attributes, at least in part, to the course he took to get his fear-free certificate. In this course he learned ways to make animals who are scared of the vet office feel a bit more relaxed when they come in for exams. He was also awarded an honors certificate from the VMBA.
Dr. Tamas lives in Hudson Falls, with his girlfriend, Carolyn, who is also a Veterinarian. At home they have 5 animals. Carolyn performed her first spay surgery on Molly, their dog, who was living in a shelter associated with their vet school in North Carolina. They liked her so much they decided to keep her. Molly is a Border Collie/Shepherd mix. Their cat, Eleanor, is a dilute tortie with a definite “tortie-tude”. They also have a bearded dragon, named Puff, an albino corn snake named Fluffy and a 7 year old blue/gold macaw named Guapo. Guapo is not only good-looking, as his name implies, but also very intelligent. His previous antics include unlatching his cage, opening the pantry and eating cat food. This has earned him a lock on his cage door. When not managing his mini-zoo at home, you can find Dr. Tamas outside. He loves any outdoor activity and has participated in crew, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing, hiking, and rock climbing.
