Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency. We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments.

This great vet care. They are amazing. Dr Knox is out doctor and we LOVE her. She literally brought our dog back to life. The entire staff and attention to detail was wonderful. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Caring and Compassionate Care - Acupuncture

Dr. Brockman was recommended by our regular veterinarian when we were considering acupuncture for our senior dog's arthritis and neuropathy. Although it did take some time before she came to the exam room, the care and compassion she showed toward our dog made up for it. She was very gentle when examining our dog. She explained everything she was doing and the reasons behind her recommendations. She was very thorough and thoughtful. Not only did she perform acupuncture, she also recommended inexpensive supplements and peanut butter (for the iron) to help correct some of our dog's blood values. She seems to feel that educating pet owners is very important and sent home literature about her clinic and also a longer handout about veterinary acupuncture and encouraged us to call anytime we had any questions. Overall, this was a very positive experience for us and I highly recommend Dr. Brockman's acupuncture services.

great vet!

I have been using Richland Animal Clinic for 12 years and can highly recommmend them. Dr. Brockman took great care of my dogs Azzie and Ivan until their sad passings this year and last year. I now entrust my two greyhounds, Annie Rose and Raven, to her and know that they're getting outstanding medical care.
Dr. Brockman ALWAYS calls me at the end of the work day to personally discuss the results of any lab work that was performed that day. And, unlike another animal clinc which will remain unnamed (hint: I live in Sylvan Park), Richland doesn't make me feel like a walking ATM machine. They have never suggested un-needed lab work or tests.
Dr. brockman is a traditionally-trained vet but is very open-minded about non-traditional and holistic healing and supplements. Today, she prescribed Chinese herbs for Annie Rose who probably has some nascent arthritis.
No animal clinic is perfect but I've always been satisfied with the health care Dr. Brockman has provided my dogs.

Worst holistic vet

I have taken my pets to Richland for over 3 years. I wanted a more holistic approach with my dogs. I saw Dr. Brockman. I switched vets after I realized how unprofessional she is. It was always difficult to get an appointment because she is never there. When one of my dogs became ill, she suggested bloodwork. She said she would call me with the results the following morning. I never heard from her. I called twice to get them. 3 days later, she had a tech call me with the results. I had already taken my pet to another vet, Dr. Ingram in Brentwood. He has been amazing and he is always available.



Richland is wonderful. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been a pet owner for over 50 years, and Terry Brockman is the most professional, most compassionate vet I have ever dealt with. She has cared for my dog and my cat, including surgery on both, and had provided the best care I could possibly hope for.

I would highly recommend Dr. Brockman for any needed veterinary care.

I would also like to commend the staff at Richland Animal Hospital. They have uniformly been polite, professional, and helpful with every question I have asked. This is a class A operation. No question about it.

Unprofessional Clinic

My girlfriend waited over 15 minutes in the lobby then 35 minutes in the room to see the vet. The vet, Dr. Brokman was in the next room over, talking about her personal life, I'm assuming with a friend/client. She finally comes in to see my pet and says sorry for the wait its been a busy morning. I don't think your personal conversions on my time is an excuse for a busy morning. If she will lie about that, I cannot trust her with the health of my pet. Disappointed client.

The STAFF is very friendly and always seems happy to see me and my dog. The Vets are very knowledgeable. They offer a variety of treatments and have reasonable prices.

super vet

I love this vet! They found a treatment that worked for a medical condition my dog had after I had taken her to other pricier vets in town with no luck. They really care about finding the right treatment for your animal, but they won't take you for a ride. I have never felt pressured to do any unnecessary treatments or buy any unnecessary products for my dog just so they can make a buck. They're always very friendly and glad to see us when we come in.



No better Vet in the World

I absolutely LOVE this clinic. I have never seen a more compasionate group of Vets and staff. I had heard about Dr. Brockman from a person 5 hours from Nashville and she lived up to recommendation and then some. If you love your pets and want them to have the best medical care, this is where you should go.




WARING! DON’T TAKE YOUR PET TO RICHLAND ANIMAL CLINIC! If you care anything about your PETS you will not take them here. This place is awful. The staff is incredible rude! If they can’t take the time to be nice to you, how are they going to treat your pet? THIS PLACE ONLY CARES ABOUT YOUR MONEY AND NOT ABOUT YOUR PET! SERIOUSLY! DON’T TAKE YOUR ANIMALS HERE! Not only does Richland Animal Clinic lack professionalism they lack heart! Two things I believe are important when dealing with someone’s pets! if you want you and your loved ones to be treated badly then go to richland animal clinic!
