Madison Martin, DVM
Dr. Madison Martin is excited to be practicing her passion in her hometown. Dr. Martin was raised right here in the Rocket City since she was 5 years old. Even from a young age it was clear that she had great compassion for animals of all kinds, including a brown recluse she once caught and tried to keep as a pet. Dr. Martin’s first official furry companion was a ferret named Pooky who she quickly realized needed more friends in the form of 2 more ferrets! Dr. Martin’s interest in animal care only grew with her as she spent more and more time out at the barn with her horse, Pogo.
Dr. Martin graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the College of Agriculture at Auburn University before continuing her education at Kansas State University where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.
