Teddy Kennel Assistant


  • I was new to the Franklin area and was desperately looking for a passionate veterinarian with the experience to help me with my goats. From the moment I met Dr. Couch I have felt like my concerns have been heard and that my animals have been treated with the up most care. Good Shepherd is a great place to take any animal. I would recommend them to anyone!

  • Our puppy had pulled an entire chocolate cake from the counter and devoured it before anyone noticed. Thankfully Dr. Couch and his team were available and quick to take my questions and analyze the situation. They even offered to work me in the next morning should severe stomach troubles arise. Great service and a great staff! Thanks!
