Dr. Keith Tillman earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine and was honored to stay on at the Teaching Hospital to complete a Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship.
After several years of practicing veterinary medicine in Athens, GA, Washington, DC and Mooresville, NC, he was drawn to helping geriatric and terminally ill pets and their families with their special needs. He started a mobile pet euthanasia practice in 2011 and found this service to others to be his life’s calling. He continues to advocate for compassionate and comfort-oriented care for animals approaching end-of-life.
He is a member of the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). He practices the art of gentle euthanasia as taught by the Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy (CAETA). He has also completed additional training in Pet Loss & Grief Companioning to appreciate the special needs of pet families making their way through loss.
He currently shares his home with Carmen, a 5-year-old Terrier mix.
