Ken’ichi Tamukai 田向健一

Ken’ichi Tamukai (1973–) was born in Aichi Prefecture and graduated from the Department of Veterinary Medicine at Azabu University. He has loved animals from the time he was a little boy, and has always lived with a variety of living creatures in his company. When he opened his veterinary clinic, he decided he wanted to offer care to any creature that was brought in. He has treated over 100 different kinds of animals, from cats and dogs to rabbits, insects, monkeys, and anteaters—earning him the nickname “Doc Rare-Beast.” His publications include Chinjū no igaku (Medicine for Rare Animals), Chinjū byōin: Chippoke dakedo onaji inochi (Rare-Animal Hospital: However Small, Life Is Life), and Ikimono to mukiau shigoto (Working with Living Creatures).
