Tracey-Ann Buchanan

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. Tracey-Ann Buchanan, is a small animal veterinarian from Jamaica who earned her degree at the School of Veterinary Medicine at The St. Augustine Campus at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and graduated with distinction in 2018.

From an early age she wanted to be a veterinarian. Her family kept various animals ranging from dogs to chickens. Veterinary assistance was not always available to make her pets feel better. She decided she wanted to fill the gap to learn how to help animals and started her journey to becoming a veterinarian. “My first surgery I recall clearly (this story I've told many times) was stitching up a broiler chicken's crop which was ripped when one of our dogs attacked our chicken coop. My chicken was patched up with fishline and a bandage and I felt proud. I nursed the poor birdie back to life until it was able to rejoin the flock.” 

After she finished high school, she volunteered at a small animal veterinary clinic. The knowledge and experience piqued her interest even more to study veterinary medicine. 

Since she graduated she has  worked  with small animals for 4 years in a veterinary clinic in Montego Bay, Jamaica and most recently worked as a mobile vet there as well.  

“It feels great to know that my knowledge, experience and approach has been able to help so many four-legged friends.”
