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:
Meagan Batey, DVM

She earned her Bachelor's degree in Animal Science from the University of Tennessee Knoxville in 2010, and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. Dr. Batey completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Oklahoma State University in 2016.

He moved to Nashville, Tennessee after visiting in 2011 and falling in love with the culture, scenic beauty, and entertainment opportunities.

Shannon Stephenson, DVM
Dr. Stephenson was raised in California and Arizona and has lived in several states including Colorado, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
