Our Story

Established in 1992

Dr. Charlie and Sharon Hatcher formed Rock-N-Country veterinary services in 1992. Their dream was to practice rural veterinary medicine in their home town of College Grove. The Hatchers have successfully practiced here for the last 25 years, and have since added their daughter, Dr. Jennifer, to the practice. Dr. Charlie is now the state veterinarian of Tennessee and no longer actively practices. Dr. Jennifer handles day to day operations and is truly skilled in her field. From wrangling cattle to vaccinating kittens, Dr. Jennifer works on all creatures great and small. She has surrounded herself with some of the best and most caring staff in veterinary medicine today. Stop in today to experience the difference that our family's practice can make in your own pet's life.


We will treat your pet as if it were our own.

We want you to get the most return from your livestock.
