Blair Snively, DVM

Dr. Blair Snively, DVM

Dr. Blair Snively, originally from Maryland, is a life-long horseman and animal lover. She was active in 4-H for many years and showed extensively on the local equestrian hunter show circuits. Dr. Snively was often found, even as young as age four, playing “vet” with her ponies and house pets. 


Dr. Snively attended Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with her DVM in 2016. She completed her small animal and equine veterinary acupuncture training at the Chi University in 2017. Since then, she has worked as an associate and relief doctor at multiple private and corporate small animal hospitals in Maryland and Mississippi. Prior to moving to Bedford County in late 2021, Dr. Snively owned and operated the only full-service mobile, mixed-animal veterinary service in the state of Mississippi.


Some of her favorite parts of practice are client education and communications, general soft tissue surgery, traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, dentistry, and business management. She enjoys practicing an integrated approach, offering the best of both Western and Eastern medicine to promote the health and longevity of her patients.


In her spare time, Dr. Snively is a blossoming novelist and dedicated horseback rider. She is a member of the Bedford County Hunt and shares her love of riding and foxhounds with her husband, Bryan and son, Wakem. They stay busy on their farm in Moneta looking after their horses, chickens, dogs, and cats.


She is thrilled to join the BRAH family and plans to stay in Bedford County indefinitely.

Jessica Tracy

Dr. Jessica Tracy, DVM, MBA, CVA
Owning Veterinarian

Dr. Jessica Tracy, like many in her profession, has known she wanted to be a veterinarian from a very young age. She received her Biology degree from Millsaps College in Jackson, MS, and then headed north to Starkville, MS to complete her veterinary degree at Mississippi State University.  Loving to travel, Dr. Tracy decided that while she was learning the art of veterinary medicine, she also wanted to experience the United States. She practiced mixed animal medicine in Casper, WY after she graduated. While there, she elected to pursue her MBA degree with the desire to one day own a clinic of her own.  She received her MBA from Colorado State University in 2013.  She then traveled to Yuma, AZ where she practiced small animal and exotic medicine while enjoying the desert. She was approached by AAHA to engage in a pilot program for mentoring younger, recently graduated veterinarians and was requested to travel to Franklin, NC to do so. While performing her duties as a veterinarian and mentor there, she was seeking to pursue her dream of clinic ownership. In November 2013, she became the proud new owner of what she considers the most amazing practice in the United States that is still growing and making improvements to the overall health and well-being of pets and clients.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her 'farmella,' triathalons, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, running, traveling and skiing.

Dr. Tracy completed her training in veterinary acupuncture through the Chi Institute in 2017. She is excited to be the only AAHA certified clinic in Bedford to offer Certified Veterinary Acupuncture. 

"Fear Free" has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice, with over 13,000 veterinary professionals committed to becoming certified. To stay on the cutting edge, Dr. Tracy has recently completed the "Fear Free" certification, in an effort to not only look after a pet’s physical well-being, but their emotional well-being, as well. We know that we must feed the pet’s mind as well as the body.
