Dr. Rene’ Holt has always had a love for animals, especially the exotic ones! She grew up in rural Mississippi and was always surrounded by her family pets which included dogs, cats, horses, sugar gliders, and even a raccoon.

Dr. Holt received her Animal and Dairy Science degree from Mississippi State University and from there she continued at Mississippi State and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2011.

Madison Martin, DVM

Associate Veterinarian

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. During her time in school, Dr. Martin became fascinated with exotic animal medicine as she oversaw the College’s Herpetarium and volunteering within the Exotic Animal Department. Since graduating, Dr. Martin has moved back to be closer with her family and put down her own roots.

Dr. Martin now has special interest in exotic companion animal medicine and surgery. She is currently the Exotic After-Hours Veterinarian for the Rocket City Veterinary team. In her free-time Dr. Martin prefers to read, play video games, and snuggle with her dog, Eowyn. Of all the animals she works with, rats are probably her absolute favorite patients!
