urgent care and wellness

Animal House is Nashville’s walk-in only veterinary urgent care and wellness clinic. We are always respectful of our client’s time, so we want to make you aware that you can expect to spend 45 minutes to an hour with us for routine care, and possibly longer for more serious conditions. This time allows us to fully examine your pet and give him or her the best treatment plan possible. Our loyal customers are welcome to drop off their pets and return at the end of the day.

Wellness Packages

We know you want the best for your canine family member, and so do we! Our wellness packages are the cost-effective way to make sure your pet gets all the preventive and routine care he or she needs to stay healthy.

Dental Care

Can you imagine what would happen to your teeth if you never brushed them? It’s no different for cats and dogs—although many pet owners don’t pay very much attention to their pet’s dental health.

Radiology (X-Rays)

One way we give your pets the best veterinary diagnostic care is with digital radiology. Radiographs, or X-rays, use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease without surgery.


At Animal House Veterinary Clinic our Nashville veterinarians offer state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to pets in the Nashville area. One of the tools we use is ultrasound, which creates images of the inner workings of the body so we can detect, diagnose, and prevent illness in your pet.


We know when your pet needs veterinary surgery it can be stressful for you. We are proud to have state-of-the-art surgical capabilities and highly trained staff so you can rest easy knowing your pet is in skilled, caring hands. Our Nashville veterinary team is always happy to answer any of your questions about any procedure as well as anesthesia and recovery.

In-House Laboratory

Animal House Veterinary Clinic is pleased to have a laboratory in our hospital. Having a lab on-site gives us the ability to perform many diagnostic tests quickly and efficiently, including:


Vaccinations are a critical part of your pet’s overall health care, and one—rabies—is required for dogs and cats by law in most states, including Tennessee. In addition to preventing many life-threatening illnesses, vaccinations can prevent other diseases prevalent in wildlife and those that can be passed to humans.

Hospice & Euthanasia Services

Saying goodbye to your animal companion can be extremely difficult. We don’t want you to be alone at the end stages of a pet’s life, and we’re dedicated to doing everything we can to make it easier on you and your pet. Most of all, we promise to treat each case with compassion and understanding.


Animal House Veterinary Clinic is proud to serve Nashville, TN and surrounding areas. We are dedicated to providing the highest level of veterinary medicine along with friendly, compassionate service. We provide medical care that doesn’t cost you more than what is necessary – we only run tests that will allow us to determine the best treatment plan possible.

We believe in treating every patient as if they were our own pet, and giving them the same loving attention and care.

About us

Our Hospital

Walk-In Convenience. Exceptional Care. Affordable Prices.

Dr. Catrina Herd purchased Animal House Veterinary Clinic in 2011 after spending years working as a veterinarian for Williamson County Animal Control. This experience made her passionate about making sure quality veterinary care was as accessible as possible to pet parents in the greater Nashville community.

She has created a team of experienced professionals who love animals and are dedicated to providing skilled, affordable, and compassionate urgent and wellness care to the pets of the Nashville area. We treat every patient like our own pet, and our walk-in-only policy means you will never be turned away.


What Customers are Saying

“Dr. Herd and her staff are top-notch veterinary professionals who care passionately about helping animals and pets. If you’re looking for great care and skill from dedicated veterinarians and techs, who will do everything they can for you and your pets, look no further! You’ve found the right place.”

-Ann Annalies Gunther

“Dr Herd and her staff are the best. I am a practicing veterinarian for 32 years. I had a puppy come into our family that needed specialized heart surgery. Dr Herd performed the surgery quickly and successfully, more importantly she and her staff treated us, and Silas, as family. They kept us informed and up to date on everything. I can’t recommend Dr Herd and her staff enough.  Thank you so much.”

– Dr. Michael Hoove
