Dr. Amy Shirley has desired to be a veterinarian since she learned about the profession in her early childhood. She feels very blessed to have been given the opportunity to pursue and achieve her dreams. Originally from Tracy City, Tennessee, she moved to Murfreesboro to go to Middle Tennessee State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science in 2001. Dr. Shirley went on to graduate with her doctorate of veterinary medicine from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 2005. After graduation, she was excited to move back to Middle Tennessee where she married her husband Michael who is a lifelong resident of Murfreesboro. Dr. Shirley has practiced as a small animal veterinarian in Murfreesboro since 2005 and enjoys being a wife and mother of 3 children. Currently, she has 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 4 horses. She loves all species but has a special devotion to the feline patient!

Dr. Shirley and her family moved to the Buchanan area of Murfreesboro in 2007 and fell in love with the community. The idea of having her veterinary clinic in this area was very appealing and is where she has dreamed of practicing. She is very excited about the opportunity to operate Family Pet Health which has been serving the Buchanan community since 2001. Dr. Shirley strives to provide trusted care and be the family doctor for the pets in her community. She is committed to the Fear-Free approach to veterinary medicine which helps alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in her patients when receiving medical attention.
