Dr. Christen Ragle


When Dr. Ragle is not saving the lives of animals or hanging with her pets, she makes fancy decorated cakes as a hobby. She also enjoys traveling and kayaking when the weather is nice.

Dr. Ragle has known veterinary medicine was her calling for quite some time—she’s been working in vet hospitals since 2006 and earned her DVM from St. George’s University in 2015. She has a special interest in internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and puppy training.

After living in the Caribbean for three years, Dr. Ragle scuba dives and loves and travel. When she’s not seeing patients, she enjoys spending time with her three rescue dogs—a beagle, a Plott hound and a Newfoundland.

Dr. Karina Butler-Perez


Dr. Karina Butler-Perez went to undergraduate school at Louisiana Tech University and received a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. She studied veterinary medicine at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine. After veterinary school, she completed a rotating internship at BluePearl Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Tampa, Florida, and then an exotic animal internship at the Exotic Animal Hospital of Orlando. After her exotic internship, she was thrilled to move to NC to expand her interest in seeing exotics.

She’s always had all types of crazy pets growing up thanks to her mom. From a young age, she knew she loved animals and wanted to help them. When she began taking her animal science classes as an undergrad and couldn’t put her textbooks down because she was so excited to learn, she knew she had found the right place for herself.
