Rivergate Emergency Veterinarians
The Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic location in Rivergate was opened 25 years ago as an addition to our original 12 South emergency pet hospital. The decision to expand was based upon the need for after-hours emergency veterinary care in Northern Nashville. This second facility allows us to better serve our Rivergate clients in a location that is more convenient for them.
Licensed emergency veterinarians work alongside our compassionate veterinary staff to provide pets with the best urgent and critical care services available. Our Rivergate location’s dedicated emergency veterinarians are:
Dr. Emily Moore
Dr. Moore grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and graduated from the University of Memphis in 2001. She graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. She then completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine. During her internship, Hurricane Katrina hit and the emergency caseload at LSU tripled overnight. While harrowing, this disaster provided invaluable experience in disaster and emergency medicine and prepared her for a career in emergency medicine. Dr. Moore came to work at Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic in November 2006. One of her favorite things about working here is that she never knows what she might see from night to night; it’s always exciting. And of course, there is no greater reward than watching an animal go from critical condition to bouncing out the door with a very happy owner!
Dr. Stacy Smith
Dr. Smith is a Nashville native. An avid Notre Dame fan, she graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in history and pre-professional studies. Dr. Smith later earned her DVM from Kansas State University. As a participant in the Veterinary Research Scholars program, Dr. Smith completed a summer study program in pharmacology. After completing a small animal medicine and surgery internship in Pittsburgh, she returned to Tennessee and began practicing veterinary medicine in the Nashville area. The lure of emergency medicine brought her to Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic in October 2011.
