Dr. Brad Tanner found his passion for horses at a young age on his family’s farm in Kentucky. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Kentucky in 2001, followed by veterinary school at Auburn University, graduating in 2005. After graduation, Dr. Tanner completed an internship at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital. The following year he became an associate and served as the resident veterinarian for Shadwell farm. Dr. Tanner became a shareholder in the practice in 2012. He is one of very few Board-Certified Veterinary Dentists™ and a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College.

His ambulatory practice is largely focused on dentistry, thoroughbred reproduction, neonatal/foal medicine and herd health. Dr. Tanner has a large referral caseload for advanced dentistry and surgical procedures with an interest in sinus disease. He serves on many committees in organized medicine for the AVMA, AAEP, KAEP and College of Veterinary Dentistry. Dr. Tanner is published in reproduction and dentistry and frequently lectures at local, national and international scientific meetings. He makes a point to invest time in training the next generation, including interns, residents and young practitioners.

Brad and wife, Susie, have two sons, Colton and Jacob, that are active in sports and enjoy raising thoroughbred foals. Away from the farm, he enjoys coaching youth baseball and attending live sporting events: UK sports, horse racing and MLB baseball games.
