There's a new animal lover at Pet Village of Brentwood who's gladly receiving nose kisses, friendly grunts, licks, paw shakes, feathery flickers and slithering slides. Joanna Walsh, DVM, recently joined the full-service pet group, which provides veterinary care, pet boarding, doggy daycare and grooming. 

Dr. Walsh was the 2021 recipient of the Young Veterinarian Award, as presented by the Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association. Award winners were nominated and chosen by an awards committee of their peers. She joined the veterinary team at Pet Village. 

"I love having a way to serve our community and to form relationships through my career. And, I ultimately love the bond with both the patients and the pet parents," says Dr. Walsh, who treats dogs, cats, exotics and other pets, such as pigs and ducks. At home, she has a dog, Phoebe, and a cat, Violet. She says she soon is going to add a bearded dragon to her family, as she has two young boys who can help care and learn about them.

Dr. Walsh says she really enjoys working with exotics. "It's a fun change of pace in your day to see everyone's different pets and be the person that can help them feel better and build that bond with doctor and clients," she explains. 

She describes her approach as giving the best medical care, love and attention to pets while communicating their needs and medical information comfortably, and in a warm environment. Veterinary services at Pet Village include wellness exams, preventative care, dentistry, surgery, in-house diagnostics, digital X-rays and ultrasounds. Additionally, they offer an online pharmacy. 

Dr. Walsh graduated from Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine and interned at BluePearl Pet Hospital in Tampa, Florida. She specifically trained in soft tissue surgery and dentistry.

Sara and Dr. Walsh met several years ago through the Middle Tennessee Boxer Rescue when Dr. Walsh did veterinary relief work. "We stayed in touch over the last few years, and always knew we wanted to work together again one day, if possible. We started making that dream a reality in early 2021, and have officially combined forces at Pet Village," says Sara.
