Dr. Lee Burnett, Veterinarian at Palmetto Animal Hospital
Dr. Burnett graduated from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. He worked with a mixed-animal practice for many years before focusing strictly on small animal veterinary medicine. His interests include internal medicine and preventive care, ultrasound, and business management. He is also certified for the treatment of felines with hyperthyroidism.

Dr. Burnett always had pets growing up and they showed him the kindness and patience that he needed to care for them. This triggered his interest in veterinary medicine. He has one dog named Molly, and three cats named Limpy Lou, Maggie, and Moo Cow. All of his cats are three-legged and run around the clinic freely.
