Dr. Clint Young

Dr. Young is a west Tennessee farm boy who grew up around all kinds of animals on banks of the Mississippi River. Once he decided to put his saddle in the shed to attend college at UT he found that his passion for wildlife extended beyond JUST eating them: he also loved treating them! On graduation he worked as a mixed animal vet where he treated everything from Clydesdales to kinkajous, but later narrowed his focus down to primarily small animals (he still likes to mix it up sometimes, though).

He's had many uncanny veterinary adventures from biopsy of brains in deer on the Mexican border to combating chlamydia in koalas in the Australian outback but in the late 2010s, Dr. Young returned to the mountains of east TN with his amazing wife, 3 mischievous sons, and an entourage of random animals.
