Dr. Bri Franklin

Bri Franklin, DVM

Dr. Franklin was born in Tulsa, OK and wanted to be a veterinarian since the age of 4.  She received her undergraduate degree from Cameron University where she majored in agriculture, with a focus on animal science, and minored in chemistry.  She attended veterinary school at Oklahoma State University and then moved to the metroplex where she practiced at a Dallas clinic for about six years.  Dr. Franklin now lives in McKinney and commutes daily to Arlington to work at RAH...and we are so happy that she does!  Her 4-legged family consists of 2 cats and 2 dogs (Rufus is pictured below), and when it comes to veterinary medicine her special interests include surgery, pain management, and internal medicine.  Dr. Franklin is a self-proclaimed 'foodie,' and loves to watch movies, but her most unique hobby is collecting shoes...by her count she currently owns close to 200 pairs!

Dr. Caitlin Oliver

Dr. Caitlin Oliver

We are delighted to welcome Dr. Caitlin Oliver to the RAH team of veterinarians!  You may even recognize Dr. Oliver - not just because she was born and bred in Arlington, but because she worked as a technician at RAH during her school breaks! We are over the moon that she chose to return to us once she received her doctorate of veterinary medicine from Texas A&M in May of 2023. Dr. Oliver lives with her fianc√©, Diego, and her senior cat Peyton (pictured here).  Peyton has played a major role in her life since the age of 11 and was her self-appointed study buddy all through vet school.  When it comes to medicine, Dr. Oliver's special interests include radiology, surgery, and orthopedics.  Now that she is done with school, she is excited to have more time to enjoy other interests, such as reading (for fun!) and cooking.

Dr. Means and her husband, a police officer, got married in 2020 and together they enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors.
