Dr. Taylor Tillery

DVM, Veterinary Academic & Industry Liaison Lead
Veterinary & Consumer Affairs

Dr. Taylor Tillery is a Sr. Professional Services Veterinarian for Merck Animal Health’s Companion Animal business, where he provides technical information to veterinary health care teams. He has extensive knowledge of small animal medicine and has aided in certified veterinarian technician and veterinary assistant training programs.

Dr. Tillery’s vast experience extends beyond general practice in Texas: he has also worked in emergency room and critical care as well as provided surgical support for the local shelter that he continues to support on weekends. As an associate veterinarian, he worked to increase the hospital’s image and revenue by offering quality medical treatment plans, increasing community awareness, and developing a social media campaign. Dr. Tillery is a member of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, French Bulldog Rescue Network, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Animal Hospital Association.

We have great diversity of thoughts and opinions from some very intelligent veterinary teammates that push me to always work harder, think differently and be better.

Dr. Tillery feels that Merck is an amazing company focused on the science, along with a great culture and portfolio of products in the animal health field.

Dr. Tillery volunteers at a local animal shelter and is a pet parent to a 1-year-old French Bulldog and 20-year-old Creamsicle Cornsnake. He enjoys all outdoor athletic activities from cycling to snow skiing and describes himself as an exercise junkie.
