Ferret Vets in Tennessee

DISCLAIMER: The vets listed have either been recommended, or have advised me personally that they are happy to treat ferrets, or have mentioned that they treat ferrets, exotic pets &/or pocket pets on their website. However I have no firsthand knowledge of how experienced any of the vets are with ferrets.
It is up to you to make sure that you are happy with the treatment your ferret is getting from your vet. If you have any doubts at all, please think about getting a second opinion so that you know that your pet is getting the best possible treatment available.


While I have made every effort to ensure that the information contained on my page is free from error, I don’t warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of this information.

  1. Fantastic, Holly! Thanks so much for letting me know! I’ll add them today for sure ?
    Am slowly updating my US Vets pages but so far have only got to Maryland. It’s a slow process, unfortunately ?

  2. Priest Lake Vet in Nashville Tennessee and All Creatures in Memphis Tennessee. These are two whomsoever the community well. So. Pope at All Creatures, and Dr. Brahman at Priest Lake.

  3. That is fantastic, Shirley! Thank you SO MUCH for giving me that information – I really appreciate it ?
    I’ll make sure the page gets updated first thing tomorrow!
    Again, many thanks for your help ❤

  4. Hi Shirley
    Could you please let me know if Dr Brahman is working at the Priest Lake surgery in Antioch, or has a new clinic opened up in Nashville with Dr Brahman I/C there?
    I went to the Priest Lake site and there is no one with that name on the Veterinarians page there! I can only see that Logan Kopp, DVM, down as the vet who treats ferrets ?‍♀️
    Obviously it could be that the surgery hasn’t updated the information on their page but I would be very grateful if you could let me know which name to put down on my page ?
    Thanks again for giving me the heads-up!!
