At Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital our doctors are non-competitive and work well together. They consult each other on cases and help each other make the best decisions for the client and patient.
The doctors are considerate and treat the staff as equals and an important part of the team. They are mentors to the staff and especially to the temporary employees (high school and college students) who are considering careers in veterinary medicine.
Our employees are long term – many as long as 20 years. That helps us work as a successful team when treating pets. (Most veterinary facilities do not have as many long term employees)
Bob is a black and white, multi-toed Manx. He usually stays in the office window, bird watching, but he also enjoys visitng with Gypsy and Cosmo, our other clinic cats. Bob is shy of strangers but good company for our work family.
Bert is our Boer Goat. Bert and his brother Ernie were found wandering on a near by road at a very young age. We put them in the yard assuming they would be claimed but they never were. Sadly, Ernie has passed away and so we got Bert a new companion, Tulip, a pygmy goat. You can spot them both in the yard here at the clinic.
Harley is our newest addition to the PVH family. He is a Vietnamese Potbelly Pig that was born around March of 2012. Thanks to our friend Beth, we adopted this little guy after the passing of Pig Pig, another potbelly pig, who lived here at the clinic for around 20 years. Pig Pig can never be replaced but we sure do love our little buddy Harley! We keep Harley inside until he gets a little bigger but if you are lucky you can see him out in the yard through out the day.
Gypsy is the Queen Diva of the downstairs. She is a very loving girl but only on her own terms and as you can tell she is not a big fan of having her picture taken.
Cosmo is our other downstairs kitty. He is very fond of laps and loves to rub up against your leg to get your attention.
Mango, a Cockatiel, is our clinic bird. You can often see him in the reception area or in his cage in the cat lobby. If you can’t see him you can often times hear him whistlin away to the tunes we have tried so hard to teach him. The Andy Griffith’s theme song is his favorite!
Tulip is our pygmy goat. She lived with a lady who took care of many other goats but the other goats used to pick on Tulip so we decided to take her in as a companion to Bert after his brother, Ernie, passed away.
