We understand your pet is more than just an animal. Your pet is your best friend, companion, and a part of your family. Our goal is to care for each pet as if it were our own to help your pet enjoy the highest quality of life possible and to give you many years to share in that enjoyment!
Our licensed veterinarians; Dr. Terry Brockman, Dr. Katie Knox, and Dr. Elizabeth Flinn 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, and offers a variety of services such as emergency care, major and minor surgeries, dental cleanings, simple annual exams and vaccines, as well as non-medical services such as boarding, bathing, and total body clips. We have a full in house pharmacy, and carry many prescription foods to fit your pets needs. All of our doctors have immediate access to veterinary specialists and are happy to refer if need be.
We realize that every client and patient is not the same and we pride ourselves in taking an individualistic approach to each case. In addition to traditional medicine, Dr. Brockman practices alternative medicine such as acupuncture and muscle testing, and is very knowledgeable with herbal medications. Also, twice a week at Richland Animal Clinic Dr. Alex Vear, an IVCA certified animal chiropractor, offers chiropractic adjustments for your pets in need.

Richland Animal Clinic is also affiliated with the Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic. They are always open when we are not so your pet has the opportunity for care at all times! It's always a good idea to familiarize yourself with the location of your nearest after hours clinic, and to save their phone number in your phone in case you ever need them. Of course, we hope you never do! Please visit their personal website for more information.

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.
