Dr. Tim Tristan – DVM, DABVPRA


Dr Tristan graduated from Texas A&M with his DVM in 1999, becoming board certified in Avian and Amphibian medicine shortly thereafter. Dr Tristan has a wide experience in various practice environments, working as the primary veterinarian in emergency, general and speciality practices.

Dr Tristan’s devotion to the healing arts is not confined to companion animals. In 2010, Dr Tristan started the Texas Sealife Center, a marine and wildlife rehabilitation center in Corpus Christi, Texas. The center is a 501c3 charitable organization that does amazing work with all types of wildlife but in particular with sea turtles. Dr Tristan and his team devote a tremendous amount of time and resources to the rehabilitation and rescue of wildlife.
