About Dr. Tobe


Dr. Tobe Singleton comes with a long history of experience in veterinary medicine.  She grew up in a veterinary family with her father (J. Whitt Singleton, DVM-AUCVM'80) being his gate opener/technician/kennel girl for his mixed animal practice.  It is where she found the love of helping and caring for pets to aspire to become a veterinarian.  Her uncle (L. Dudley Singleton, DVM-AUCVM'75) was also a veterinarian and following both of these family members as well as meeting many young veterinary students that traversed through their hospital doors throughout her childhood made her continue her efforts as she matured to become a veterinarian.

Dr. Tobe graduated from Tullahoma High School in Tullahoma, Tennessee in 1990.  She went to Auburn University and obtained a B.S. degree in Animal and Dairy Science in 1994.  She graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998.  After graduation she moved to Minnesota for 4 1/2 years and worked in several small animal practices before moving back to Tennessee in the fall of 2002.  Dr. Tobe then established herself at Southside Animal Hospital for 14 1/2 years as one of the associate veterinarians caring for dogs, cats and some pocket pets.  Currently, Dr. Tobe  has a mobile practice providing services in the home.
