Joan Tunnard, DVM, MPH

Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian

Dr. Joan is originally from Columbus, NE. She attended Nebraska Wesleyan University and Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has spent most of the last 15 years in Las Vegas practicing small animal medicine. Two years ago, she felt a calling to focus on end-of-life care for pets and became a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian through the IAAHPC in 2022. She is excited to be back home in Nebraska and to serve pets in the Omaha and Lincoln metro areas. She is joined by her husband, three children, dogs (Beignet and Rex), and cats (Sparky and Cookie).
