Tacy Rupp

DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVIM (Cardiology)

Dr. Tacy Rupp moved from the northeast to south Florida in 2000. Seeking refuge from the northern winters, she joined the specialty medical care field here and was the first board-certified veterinary cardiologist based in south Florida. She established the Veterinary Cardiopulmonary Care Center in 2007 and has provided compassionate cardiac care in Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin counties ever since. Dr Rupp also has a special interest in advanced pulmonary medicine and offers complete respiratory diagnostic and therapeutic care.

Dr. Rupp received her DVM from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. She performed a small animal internship at North Carolina State Veterinary Teaching Hospital, then returned to The Ohio State University to complete her residency in Cardiology and her Master of Science degree. She remained at Ohio State while serving as a clinical instructor, sharing her passion for cardiology through teaching cardiology to veterinary students.

Dr. Rupp has a menagerie of pets – dogs, cats, birds, a guinea pig, and a rat. This is, in part, thanks to her husband, Dr. Greg Rupp (also a veterinarian) and to her son, another enthusiastic animal lover!
