VCA Augustine Loretto Animal Hospital

Renee Rockefeller, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Tennessee


Dr. Rockefeller, who is originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, is a 1987 graduate of the University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine. She has been with our hospital  since 1993. Previously, she has worked at small animal and emergency clinics in both Jacksonville and northern Virginia. She and her husband, Paul, enjoy spending time with their daughter, Sloane, and cat, Lily, as well as sailing, camping, and rock-climbing.

Dr.Rockefeller volunteers with Patriot Service Dogs. She commits to puppy-training for 2 years, after which time, the lucky dog will then go home to assist a disabled veteran. Her last puppy, Indy, would come to work with her often. Although, it was hard to see him go to new home, it was a rewarding experience for all of us here at the clinic.  


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you.
