The SAFE Care Clinic staff is here to care for your cat and small dog.
Dr. Jennifer Bledsoe-Nix, DVM
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 spent the last 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, 2 bloodhounds and 3 feral cats. Dr. Jennifer is also a blogger and creator of educational classes such as “Kitten Kindergarten” which helps new kitten owners learn good care and training together with their kittens.
