Dr. David Tumlinson
Dr. David Tumlinson has owned Montrose Vet Clinic since 1981. He attended veterinary school at Auburn University, and is still committed to his alma mater, as every spring you can find an Auburn vet student interning at our clinic! He and his wife, Marilyn, spend most of their time with their family, and their three daughters are often recruited to help with their other hobbies, riding and working his small cattle herd. Dave and Marilyn’s grandchildren- Trevor, Kyle, and Carson- keep them busy most of the time. Dr. Dave especially enjoys cattle work and orthopedic surgery, but as all of his employees can tell you, he is well-versed in all species. He is a wealth of knowledge and experience, and has continued to build Montrose Vet Clinic’s reputation for progressive medicine with a practical approach.
