SAFE Care Clinic DVM Dr Jennifer Bledsoe-Nix

Jennifer Bledsoe-Nix

Dr. Jennifer was born and raised in East Tennessee and is a 2004 graduate from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. She has been the owner and Medical Director of SAFE Care since 2016. She has spent 12 years working in private practice (full time) and working part time as a shelter surgeon. She said, “I have always been a huge advocate for feline medicine. Over the past few years I became more and more involved with shelter medicine and feline rescue groups. I discovered that my “best days” each week were the days I worked the most with the shelter or dealt with the complicated rescue cases. I realized that while I love private practice and medicine, my heart was drawing me more and more into shelter and rescue medicine.” Dr. Bledsoe-Nix and her husband have 8 indoor cats, 1 bloodhound and 4 feral cats. Dr. Jennifer teaches our Cat Care Education Classes.
