About Us — TLC Pet Care (1)

Dr. Mike Lemmon, DVM

Dr. Mike Lemmon was born in Ogden, Utah and spent some of his childhood in Colorado while his father went to veterinary school.

Dr. Mike developed a love for the profession while he followed his father on emergency calls and around various veterinary clinics.

His favorite parts of this amazing career are saving lives, surgery, dentistry, and watching patients and their families grow and change. Mike’s goal is to make a difference by helping the pets of Ogden and beyond live the healthiest and happiest lives possible with their best friends and families.

Dr. Mike’s hobbies include family time, motorcycles, mountain biking, hiking, fast cars, fishing, drawing, and many more. He is also teaching his daughter to love all the same things.

Traveling has helped Dr. Mike appreciate the splendors of Utah and how lucky we are to live in the United States of America.

(His wife thinks he should be in commercials because he is handsome and has great hair.)

Dr. Kara Tassone, DVM

Dr. Kara Tassone was born here on the Wasatch front and enjoyed growing up near the mountains where she learned to love hiking and enjoying the outdoors.

She attended Weber State University where she graduated with Bachelors degrees in Psychology and Zoology. After graduation she then took a few years away from academia to enjoy the outdoors and to fall in love with motorcycle riding and her husband.

Dr. Kara attended St George’s University on the island of Grenada where she and her husband enjoyed the island life (between studying) and being able to learn about medicine in a very practical manner. They completed their 4th year of Veterinary education at the University of Illinois.

Following completion of her DVM, Dr. Kara did an internship in small animal medicine, emergency, and surgery at the Animal Referral and Emergency Center in Mesa, Arizona. After completing her internship she worked doing relief medicine at multiple emergency facilities while living in AZ. Later she and her husband moved back to Utah where she joined the team at Animal Care Center and K-9 Rehabilitation. There she learned to appreciate amazing staff, clients and patients. She also developed a passion for end of life care and acupuncture.

Ultimately, she missed being able to help patients and families in their most stressful moments- so she decided to return to emergency medicine.

Dr. Kara has served on many committees, both national and local. She is the former President Elect of the Utah Veterinary Medical Association and believes veterinarians have to speak to be heard. Her motto is “lead to inspire.” We all have something we are passionate about- SO LETS CHANGE THE WORLD AROUND US!

She loves living on the Wasatch front with her husband, daughter, their dogs Bob and Goblin, and their cats Ice Cream and Stubart.

Tyler - Practice Manager

Tyler was born and raised here along the Wasatch Front and began his path in veterinary medicine in 2016. During that time he has worked in many facets of vet med, however, being manager of a clinic is his most exciting challenge yet.

He also has a passion for aviation and has his private pilot license so when he is not working, you can find him and his husband flying to exciting places or studying to become an airline pilot.

Tyler is a dog-dad to a black lab named Skyy and a yellow lab named Bailey, both of whom test his patience daily but whose quirks he adores (even if he won’t tell you).
