The Animal Clinic opened its doors in the summer of 1983 as a mixed animal practice with only one doctor. In 2004 the practice limited itself to small animal only with 4 full time doctors. Today The Animal Clinic employees 7 veterinarians who together share over 122 year of veterinary experience.
Our mission is to provide quality, progressive veterinary medicine to the East Tennessee region. As a multi-doctor practice each doctor offers different professional expertise which fits together to create an expansive portfolio of veterinary skills. The Animal Clinic offers these veterinarians a multitude of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to help guide our doctors to providing the most accurate diagnosis and therapeutic care in all stages of a pet’s life, from ensuring healthy growth, promoting health and wellbeing, and alleviating illness, pain and suffering. We value our client relationships and strive to serve in a courteous, professional, and kind manner as an advocate for your pet’s well-being.
We pride ourselves on maintaining our veterinary oath:
“Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge. I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics. I accept as a lifelong obligation the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence.”
