Murfreesboro Emergency Veterinarians
The Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic location in Murfreesboro is our newest facility. It was opened to offer pet owners in the Murfreesboro area a better, safer alternative to the 50-mile drive into the city to visit our Nashville pet clinic should a pet ever need urgent care. This latest addition to our network of emergency veterinary hospitals in Middle Tennessee has us very excited about the future, and we’re looking forward to doing more good work with pets and their owners in the greater Murfreesboro community.
Just like our other locations, the Murfreesboro clinic has two trained emergency veterinarians on staff at all times to provide immediate care to pets in need. Heading the team in Murfreesboro are:
Rachel Lampley, DVM
Dr. Rachel grew up on a quarter horse farm in the Triune area just south of Nashville. She spent most of her youth showing and judging quarter horses. After high school Dr. Rachel attended Middle Tennessee State University from 2006-2010 with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. While at MTSU she received two equine related research grants through the university. She then went on to The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary medicine and graduated in May 2014. While at UTCVM Dr. Rachel was an active member of the International Veterinary Students Association and the Feline Club, and volunteered at several Feral Fixin' events. In the summer of 2011 she traveled to The University of Georgia to conduct research with the Georgia Veterinary Scholars Program sponsored by Merial and the National Institute of Health.
After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Rachel moved to beautiful Tazewell, Virginia, to work in a rural mixed animal practice. She developed an interest in feline low-stress handling, wound management, emergency surgery, and holistic medicine. Dr. Rachel is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association, and the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society.
Dr. Rachel joined the Murfreesboro Pet Emergency Clinic in 2015. She moved back to Middle Tennessee to be closer to family and friends and to get back into showing horses. She lives in Murfreesboro, but her family still has a farm in Triune where she keeps her horses. When Dr. Rachel isn't working she loves to play outside hiking, camping, and floating the river. Her partner is crime is a 4 year old "Georgia Red Dog" (mixed breed!) named Athena. She also has three wonderful kitties named Lily, Chip, and Miss B.
