"Doctor Hill saved our Alaskan Malamute’s life. He was in terrible condition when we retired to Sevierville. The Vets Kota had been to did not have the knowledge of large dogs as Doctor Hill has. She immediately discovered his Thyroid condition and he is beautiful and healthy once again! We would recommend this clinic to anyone!"
" Very clean facilities, Very helpful and knowledgeable staff "
Excellent in every way! I was able to get my elderly kitty in to see a doctor within hours for a sudden, painful and severe tooth abscess. The doctor gave a second opinion that was extremely favorable, both to the health of my kitty, and my pocketbook. Extremely compassionate care and concern for the overall health of my little gal. Offering curbside only service at this time due to the virus. They took great care of her to and from the car with no fuss. Interaction with all of the staff was top shelf!

This is the most important aspect of veterinary care. It gives the doctor the chance to examine the pet from head to toe and survey for hidden signs of disease (dental tartar, skin allergies, external parasites, arthritis, obesity) and the chance to discuss any concerns you may have (diet, exercise, weight gain, excessive drinking, new behaviors)
Our yearly visits start with an assessment by the veterinarian to determine if your pet is healthy enough to receive and respond to a vaccine and to determine what vaccines are necessary for each individual patient.
We also assess what laboratory testing is needed based on lifestyle and age of the pet. This could just be a simple heartworm test or we may recommend a full panel of blood chemistries, hormone testing, and blood cell counts.
We offer boarding services that utilize our indoor-outdoor runs and our fenced play yard. We also have VIP rooms with windows and toddler beds for non-destructive pet families.
Our groomer is by appointment only and all pets must be up to date on vaccinations. Grooms include hair cut, nail trim, bath and anal gland expression. Additional fees may apply for specialty cuts or matting.
Our clinic is proud to offer both in-house diagnostic and economical off-site lab services
