Tamara Dobbie, DVM, has joined the Section of Reproduction at New Bolton Center as a staff veterinarian. New Bolton Center is University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s large animal campus in Kennett Square, Pa.
“I will be providing emergency coverage and assuming some of the clinical workload for the other clinicians,” Dr. Dobbie said. “I’ll also have the opportunity to assist with clinical laboratories and teaching the veterinary students.”
Dobbie completed her residency in large animal reproduction at New Bolton Center in 2000 and remained as a lecturer for two more years. She then worked in private practice.
Dobbie will lead the clinical service program for reproductive emergencies at George D. Widener Hospital at New Bolton Center. She will also teach a food animal reproduction clinical rotation to fourth-year veterinary students.
In related news, Angela Dion has taken over as assistant biosecurity officer at New Bolton Center. Dion formerly worked in the sports medicine department.

Moran, Jr. Critical Care Center and other patient housing and clinical areas throughout the George D. Widener Hospital.
“The way animals are moved, the way veterinary hospital stalls are cleaned, the way staff moves from stall to stall, even the way air circulates all offer opportunities to limit the movement of infectious organisms,” Dr. Aceto said.
