Catrina Herd, DVM
Practice Owner / Veterinarian
Dr. Catrina Herd graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. A native of east Tennessee, Dr. Herd moved to middle Tennessee that same year. Her first son, Spencer, was born in 2008. Shortly after, she became the full-time veterinarian for Williamson County Animal Control.
In December 2009, Dr. Herd took a position with Animal House Veterinary Clinic. Less than two years later, in April 2011, she purchased the clinic (and as of 2019 she is 100% owner)! Then in April of 2014 her youngest son, Holden, was born.
Dr. Herd is known for her thoroughness, excellent diagnostic skills, and great bedside manner. Her patients love her even if they don’t love going to the doctor! She has the heart of a teacher, and loves the days when she can teach a young veterinarian or a technician something they didn’t know.
She gives many of her free hours to help with animal rescue and is always willing to go above and beyond for a sick animal.
In her spare time, Dr. Herd enjoys spending time with her family at their cabin on the lake, or at the beach… any beach… just give her a beach and she will be happy!
Gayle has been in animal rescue for many years. She joined us full time in the summer of 2009 after retiring from the corporate world. She is still part of a rescue organization and, like the rest of us, can’t say no to the many strays that come through our doors.
