Central Veterinary Hospital
I brought my Savannah cat in because he was scratching and licking himself bald. One of the vets there found he had no intestinal parasites, no fleas, ticks, etc., which I already knew. He's never been outside. They charged me $380.00 for a 20 minute "look over", skin scraping, and found nothing. They dropped the ball. Nothing ever came from that and he's still doing the same. The next Savannah kitten I bought two years later went in for a minor surgery and Keele had no clue if he had his pain meds or if he had eaten or had been drinking after his surgery. He said he did, but that was a lie. When I got him home, he was dehydrated, and starved. He was in so much pain that he cried until I gave him the meds they had sent me home with. I don't appreciate being lied to. Also, my daughter's cat recently had a dental procedure done there and her cat has never been the same. She'll never go back and neither will I. If you love you pets, DO NOT TRUST THESE VETS! They don't care about your animal, they care about money!!!!l

Karns Animal Clinic
The exam fee is only $20. this is half the price of other vets. keep up the good work Karns Animal Clinic, and thank you again for your low prices, it makes it easier to bring the animals in when they need it. there are often times that i woudln't bring the animals in because of having to pay $40 just to walk in the door to other vets, and so i would wrestle with "do i see if it goes away on its own, do i take them to the vet?": because there are most of the time, where the animal really does get better on its own, and wasting $40 every time can be expensive with 7 animals.... now, it wont be such a wrestling match, if i want to take them in, $20 isn't bad for a doctor to look and see if they are alright. this means a lot to me, thank you again.

Butler Animal Clinic
I would never take my animals there. I remember the OLD Dr. Butler...he would be ashamed of this place. They are just riding on his good name and are only in it for the money. They should all be ashamed of dishonoring his memory!

Butler Animal Clinic
Very poor business. This is possibly the most unprofessional and careless group of veterinarians I have come across. I am extremely sorry to have had my dog neutered here after all he has been through post operation. I brought him home with him whimpering in pain and passed it off as him just being operated on. Within hours his entire lower abdomen was swollen, severely bruised, and red as a beet. The incisions they made and stitched up look like he was carelessly torn apart and stitched back together. He got progressively worse throughout the night and I wound up staying up until opening hours at this clinic to take him back in. The vet that then saw him acted like this was no big deal for him to not walk, urinate, and be in this visibly poor of shape. I asked if the area should be cleaned as it was a bloody mess and she suggested running water on it and prescribed antibiotics. Once again, throughout the night he continued to get worse, and I called and asked to speak to someone but wound up talking to a veterinary technician (I believe named Erica) trying to get a referral to UT small animal. She refused to forward the call to someone that could do so and said the situation wasn't enough of an emergency for him to be taken to UT. While I was checking out at our second visit I also overheard a female veterinarian about a client that had complained in front of other people waiting to be checked in and out. I will continue to use UT and Karns Animal Clinic. I am upset that I did not read further into their poor reviews before taking him here.

Crossings Animal Hospital
I used to like this company whenever I had an issue they were quick to help me. However, I will never take my dog here again! I dropped her off with an upset stomach before I went to work. I was notified that I could either have them give her subcutaneous injections and oral medication for 390.00 but,there was a chance that I would have to take her to an ER for an IV since it was the weekend or I could go ahead and pay 440.00 for the IV medication and bring her back the next day. Therefore, I chose the IV medication due to the fact the doctors said she looked nauseous. Well, I picked her up at 5:15 pm after work and took her home. Around 7:00pm I noticed her paw was swelling to twice the size of her other foot and tried to loosen the bandages per the ER vet's instructions. However, she was in so much pain that she started to growl at me. Therefore, I rushed her to the ER where they informed me that the blood flow to my dogs foot was cut off due to the bandages being wrapped to tightly and that she would have to be sedated again to take the catheter out of her leg causing an additional 126.36 for the ER visit. Well, I called the vet the next day to have the charges reimbursed since it was their fault that she had to be rushed to the clinic. However, I was told that since I had taken her home it was my fault because, I took that responsibility into my own hands. However, there is NO ONE at the clinic after 6:00pm when they close. Therefore, no one would have been able to see that her paw was swollen and in that time she could have lost her paw due to a lack of blood. Therefore, it is an extremely good thing that I had been there because, if she had lost her paw I would have been on the phone with a lawyer before I even walked out of the office. There is no reason that a dogs paw should have been wrapped that tightly. Finally, if you have an active dog and you let them wrap their and let them keep them you may need to change their name to tripod!

Veterinary Medical Center
I established Fannon Veterinary Medical Center since it is closer to where I live. I have cancer and was in the hospital 6 times last year. My ex-friends did not take very good care of my two dogs and one cat, so boarding them became a necessity. They did a dental on one of my rescued dogs. They were also bathed and groomed. Fannon does not do "grooming", Just shears their fur real short. When they brought out one dog, I noticed that her nails had not been trimmed. They took her in the back, and then brought her back to the waiting room. Got both dogs home, and Fannon VMC had NOT trimmed their nails! This was disappointing after all of the money I had paid them. Since the fire at FVMC, no one has answered my phone calls and messages. I NEED my fur babies' medical records and will go back to Broadway Veterinary Clinic where I had been going to since 1983. I can't afford to have all of the blood work and vaccinations done again. Too many vaccines close together can cause autoimmune diseases. I was hoping any fire damage would be repaired and Fannon would re-open.

Broadway Veterinary Clinic
I have been taking my dogs and cats to Broadway Veterinary Clinic since 1983, even when the late Dr. Senter was there. My fur babies have always had excellent care.

Butler Animal Clinic
I took my cat to Butler yesterday to be put to sleep. It was a horrible experience. I don't remember her name but it was the female vet. She first gave my cat a shot to relax her and it made her sick. Then she says that happens a lot. Would have been nice to be told that up front if it were true. Then she poked around on her for about 20 minutes, never did find a vein and then says I should probably leave because she was going to have to put the shot directly into my cats heart and she didn't want me to have to see that. She said my cat wasn't suffering through all this but how could she know that. Her eyes were open and she was breathing. I think after a couple of tries she should have gotten another vet to stick my cat. It was the most unpeaceful and inhumane thing I have ever experienced and she got paid to do that. I will Never return to that clinic for any reason and would never recommend to anyone.

Cedar Bluff Animal Clinic
We have been going to Cedar Bluff since 2003. Have had multiple pets treated there. Very pleased with service. They really love animals and take the time to listen to the owner. We moved from the West Knoxville area in 2005 to Powell. There are,several vets right down the road over here, but we continue to bring our 4 cats to Cedar Bluff. Wouldn't go anywhere else!

Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
