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:
Dr. Matthew Stevens, DVM
Dr. Stevens graduated from UTCVM in 2001, Phi Zeta (Honor Society). After graduation, Dr. Stevens practiced at a small animal private practice outside Chattanooga in Cleveland, Tennessee, until 2006. Starting in 2006, he took a position with Novartis Animal Health as a professional services manager and district sales manager. Dr. Stevens eventually left Novartis to spend more time at home and accepted a full-time position with Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic in 2010. His medical interests include dermatology, prevention of zoonotic disease, pain management, neurology, and surgery.
In his free time, Dr. Stevens may be found hiking, reading, or chasing his daughter Sydney (9) and son Lucas (10)—with his pit bull Jet and French bulldog Gus trailing in hot pursuit.
Dr. Suzanne Gibson, DVM
Dr. Gibson is a Murfreesboro native. She attended Cumberland University, where she graduated with honors with a BachelorŐs of Science in Biology, and played college softball for the Lady Bulldogs. She completed her MasterŐs degree in Agricultural/Animal Science from Tennessee State University, and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Tennessee in 2003. After graduating from veterinary school, she moved to Florida, and worked in a mixed animal hospital for a year. In 2004, she returned home to middle Tennessee, and practiced emergency medicine for nine years at Animal Medical Center. In 2013, she practiced in Mt. Juliet at Providence Animal Hospital, but missed the challenge and excitement of emergency medicine and joined Murfreesboro Pet Emergency in July 2014. Dr. GibsonŐs professional interests include toxicology and pain management. Dr. Gibson has 3 boxers that she adores; Cracker Jack, Graham, and Rocco are all rescues that love squeaky toys and playing fetch. In her free time, Dr. Gibson enjoys working on her farm and traveling. Additionally, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and is an avid sports fan that loves cheering on the University of Tennessee (especially the Lady Vols!)
Dr. Steve Prevost, DVM
Dr. Prevost grew up in Colorado and completed his undergraduate work in Denver. He graduated from Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 followed by an internship with a specialty referral and emergency hospital in Miami, FL. Dr. Prevost has been practicing full time emergency medicine after completion of the internship. He moved to Nashville, Tennessee after visiting in 2011 and falling in love with the culture, scenic beauty, and entertainment opportunities. His three girls (two Aussie mixes and a Golden/Chow mix) are always by his side. Dr. Prevost’s free time is spent in his workshop with woodworking projects for a small business he has started.
