Dr. Ranetta Perkins, DVM
Dr. Ranetta Perkins joined The Animal Clinic veterinary team in 2016. Upon graduating from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Perkins returned to Nashville, TN where she was born and raised. She worked in a busy small animal vet hospital for two years before she decided to venture into emergency veterinary medicine. Dr. Perkins worked at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners, where she spent time at their Franklin, TN and Chicago, IL locations. For the past year, she has been a relief veterinarian, meeting pets and their families across the greater Nashville and Hendersonville areas. She has a strong interest in treating pets in wound care, trauma and internal medicine plus serving exotic and pocket pets, birds and the occasional reptile.
She loves helping pet parents through the difficult decisions related to caring for a sick pet. In her spare time outside the vet clinic, Dr. Perkins enjoys movies/plays (especially romantic comedies), reading (crime novels), attending sporting events (Go Tennessee Titans!), and listening to music. She has wonderful spastic dog named Lexi, who is an Australian Shepherd mix and a cool-as-a-cucumber orange tabby named Charlie.
