My name is Kyle Daniel. I grew up in the middle Tennessee area. Starting in kindergarten I have always desired to be a veterinarian. I graduated from Hendersonville High School and received my undergraduate degree from Middle Tennessee State University. I then moved to lower Alabama to enroll in Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated from veterinary school in 1996.
I then practiced until September 1998 in Montgomery Alabama prior to joining the team at Animal Care Veterinary Hospital. I had the joy and privilege of working with Dr George Jackson when I joined the practice. I learned several things in that time that I appreciate more as the years go by. He instilled is each of us that worked for him honesty, hard work, diligence and a compassion for people.
I enjoy all aspects of understanding internal medicine, surgery, dermatology and dental cases. I love getting to know the moms and dads of my patients and sharing life with them. I have recently began to develop the new skill of Chiropractic. I am finishing my training at Health Pioneers Institute in Chicago and am encouraged to use this new skill to help patients that prior to attending I could not. The concept of doing something with your hands that can change their quality of life is remarkable.
I have been married for the last 25 years and have 3 children that range from 13-16 years old. I grow grass fed and finished beef, pastured eggs and have 5 sheep. The sheep were a Christmas present for my 3 border collies(Susie, Brin and Ace). I also have a poodle (Mollie) and a cat (Aubie).
I serve at World Outreach Church in high school Infinity. My hobbies include camping, training border collies, hiking, cheering for my family in running and cycling races, outdoor cooking, kayaking and playing horse shoes. I enjoy serving and seeking to be obedient to Christ. My fun fact is that when I was eight was allergic to cats. My eyes actually became so swollen that I could not see.
Dr. Kerrie Robinson is a true Murfreesboro native! She graduated from Riverdale High School and got her undergraduate degree in Animal Science with minors in Chemistry and Biology from MTSU in 2001. She graduated from Veterinary School at the University of Tennessee Knoxville in 2005. Her favorite things about working as a Veterinarian are the relationships and bonds she gets to form with her patients and their wonderful owners.
Dr. Robinson shares her life with 2 amazing dogs. Tucker is a 9-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is a total cuddle bug and spends the majority of his day sleeping on the couch. Popeye is a 3-year-old Beagle/Schnauzer/Smooth Coated Fox Terrier Mix (she did a DNA test on him to figure out his breeds!). He was found in the parking lot of Popeye’s chicken as a stray. He has TONS of energy and loves chasing Tucker and playing keep away with all the toys.
In her free time Dr. Robinson enjoys working out, trying new restaurants with her friends, spending time at the lake, hanging out with her dogs, cooking, and cheering for the UT Vols!
Fun Fact: Dr. Robinson has an artistic side! She loves to paint, craft, and make wacky hats for the Kentucky Derby.
Animal Care Veterinary is the best vet clinic I’ve ever known. You can tell that everyone there loves animals. The vet we see most often, Dr. Robinson, is gentle and knowledgeable, always answering questions clearly. I would recommend to any friend.
