Dr. Anna Jenkins
Dr. Anna Jenkins

Dr. Anna Jenkins grew up in suburban Alabama, but her passion for animal care developed during the long hours she spent on her grandparents’ cattle farm in Tennessee; some of her earliest memories include bottle-feeding orphaned cows in the barn. As she grew older, Dr. Jenkins came to realize that a career in veterinary medicine is as much about helping people as it is about helping the earth’s creatures—she’s thrilled to serve the pet owners and animal companions of Lexington as an Associate Veterinarian!

Dr. Jenkins started her veterinary journey by working as a kennel technician and veterinary assistant in northern Alabama during the summers of her high-school and undergraduate careers. She then attended Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, serving as a part-time student worker in the school’s Small-Animal Emergency and Critical Care department while earning her degree. During the last two months of her schooling, she started working at a private practice in her hometown before moving to Lexington to join the Animal Care Clinic family in May of 2016.

Medically, Dr. Jenkins has a special passion for surgical work—no two surgeries are exactly alike, and it constantly keeps Dr. Jenkins on her toes! She also enjoys ophthalmology because of the intricate nature of veterinary eye care.

Outside of work, Dr. Jenkins likes staying active by running—she recently completed her first half-marathon—and playing Ultimate Frisbee, a sport she’s enjoyed since her days playing on Auburn University’s club team. Dr. Jenkins shares her home with two cats that she adopted during her time in veterinary school: Steve is a long-haired tuxedo cat who is so easy-going that he allows Dr. Jenkins to dress him up in Halloween costumes; Henry is the sneakier of the pair and loves to steal morsels from the countertop, sink, or even Dr. Jenkins’ plate!
