Dr. John Mays

Dr. John Mays joined Belmont Animal Hospital in October 2022. Born in Nashville and raised in Franklin, TN, Dr Mays has always called middle Tennessee home. After graduating from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2016 (Go Vols!) Dr. Mays returned to Nashville to be close to family, and to be part of the excitement in a quickly growing city.

Like many veterinarians, Dr. Mays thoroughly enjoys preventative medicine and finding ways to keep pets as healthy as he can through routine care. He has interests in soft tissue surgery and working-up internal medicine cases, but has a special interest in diabetic patients as he is a type 1 diabetic himself. He loves that every day in practice is a little different. He enjoys both routine wellness visits and the unusual workups that require out-of-the-box thinking, and finds fulfillment in helping people take care of some of their most precious family members.

When he isn’t saving lives, Dr. Mays enjoys running, traveling, and spending time with family including his wife, his dog Henry, and his cat, Riff Raff. He and his wife love to cook together and like to think they have perfected the at-home pizza.
