Dr. Jennifer Goetz 

Dr. Jennifer Goetz graduated from North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh North Carolina in 1997. She had been working in the veterinary field since high school and has had a profound love for animals and people who love animals her entire life. She completed an internship in Small Animal Surgery and Internal Medicine at Metroplex Veterinary Hospital in Irving, Texas in 1998, which is not a requirement to become a veterinarian. This internship included rigorous training in emergency medicine, complex internal medicine cases (including but not limited to cardiology, nephrology, neurology, and gastroenterology), radiology experience, experience with routine and complex surgical cases, and dermatology and ophthalmology rotations as well.


Dr. Goetz has lived in the Raleigh area since graduating undergraduate school from the University of Delaware, College of Agriculture (degree in Animal Science with Distinction (an undergraduate research/thesis degree) and minors in Biology and Chemistry) in 1992. She graduated in the top five percent of both her undergraduate and veterinary classes. She was the president of the Student Chapter of the American Association of Feline Practitioners for a year during veterinary school. After her internship, she came back to Raleigh and did some relief work before coming to Bowman Animal Hospital and working there for seven years. Finally, she decided, “Why not have a baby and start my own veterinary practice?” So, she did and Animal Hospital at Brier Creek was born. Her vision is to create a place where staff and clients can be treated like family and can receive all the education, help and patience that they need and deserve. Of course, she also wanted somewhere the pets could receive extra love and attention (sometimes, she admits, too much). Also, being able to practice state of the art veterinary medicine with the best equipment and medications and techniques is part of that vision as well.

Her hobbies include gardening, jewelry making, occasional sewing, and taking care of her 8 cats and 4 dogs. She also assists her daughter’s troop leader with girl scouts meetings.
