Amanda Thomer, VMD, DACVECC


Dr. Amanda Thomer grew up in the Philadelphia area and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from New York University. In pursuit of her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian, she attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.

Following graduation, Amanda completed a rotating internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York City. Given her blossoming love of emergency and critical care medicine throughout her veterinary schooling and internship training, she returned to the University of Pennsylvania to complete a three-year residency in Emergency and Critical Care.

Amanda’s professional interests include all forms of shock and critical illness, transfusion medicine, and trauma. She trains the Emergency and Critical Care residents and has been the head of the Intensive Care Unit since its opening in May 2019.

Outside of the hospital, Amanda enjoys exploring the food scene, baking, working out at Orangetheory fitness, and spending time with her dog, Wonton.
