Welcome To Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital!

Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital was Dr. Hackett’s dream and opened on July 13, 1981. It is the goal of the hospital to work with pet owners to provide them with information and options to enhance the quality of their pet’s lives. With over 60 years of combined experience, please allow our veterinarians to care for your animals as if they were our own. New state regulations have been put into place to help deter the abuse of controlled prescription medications. Click Here for our blog!

Please be informed, and come see us ASAP if your pet has been on a grain free diet so we can run taurine levels. Let's make sure your fur baby won't develop cardiac disease from this deficiency!!
