Jennifer Bledsoe-Nix, DVM
Dr. Jennifer Bledsoe-Nix earned her DVM degree from the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. After graduation, she spent 12 years employed at a small animal private practice in east Tennessee, during which time she worked extensively with rescue organizations and local animal shelters. While she loved working with all the animals, she discovered her love and passion for feline medicine and shelter medicine. With a new focus in her career, she took a position as medical director at SAFE Haven for Cats in Raleigh, North Carolina, providing medical care to the cats and kittens in the shelter, the foster program and the spay/neuter clinic. After four years in the feline-only shelter, she transitioned to a larger shelter organization, SPCA of Wake County in Raleigh, North Carolina, providing care to a multitude of species. Dr. Jennifer is the medical director of the SPCA of Wake County and leads the shelter medical team and spay/neuter medical team. At SPCA, she provides medical care for the animals, including cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and small rodents. Neonatal and pediatric care are essential to its robust foster program and one of her primary passions. When not working, she spends time relaxing with her husband and menagerie of cats, including three cats with cerebellar hypoplasia of varying severity.
