Richland Animal Clinic improves lives through personalized care. Your pet is your best friend, companion, and a part of your family. Our goal is to treat you like family and care for each pet as if it were our own to help you make more memories and celebrate more birthdays with your pets!

Our Nashville veterinarians Dr. Terry Brockman, Dr. Katie Knox, Dr. Elizabeth Flinn and Dr. Whitney Smith have over 50 years of combined experience treating cats and dogs. Your pet's health and well-being is very important to us and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.

Richland Animal Clinic is a full-service animal hospital in west Nashville and offers holistic veterinary medicine plus traditional veterinary medicine plus pet boarding.  Let us help your pet with surgeries, dental cleanings, annual exams, microchipping and vaccines, as well as non-medical services such as boarding and bathing. We have a full in-house pharmacy and carry many prescription foods to fit your pets needs plus an online pet pharmacy & store.

We pride ourselves in taking an individualistic approach to each case. Dr. Brockman practices alternative veterinary medicine such as pet acupuncture and muscle testing and is very knowledgeable with pet herbal medications. Also, twice a week at Richland Animal Clinic, Dr. Alex Vear, an IVCA certified animal chiropractor, offers pet chiropractic adjustments for your pets in need.

We are very happy with the Richland animal clinic. They are the primary care veterinarians for our cat Sage. They have been able to get in her in quick, and we haven't had any problems. Sage is as pleased as a cat can be with their services. We have not used the pet boarding yet just the veterinarians.
