About Us


At Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital our doctors are non-competitive and work well together. They regularly consult each other on cases in order to 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.

Many of our employees are long term – some 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)

Our PVH Pets


Bob is a black and white, Hemmingway (multi-toed) Manx cat (no tail). He has been a member of the PVH family since he was a small kitten. He usually spends his time downstairs sleeping on his futon in his apartment, but he also enjoys spending time with his roommate, Doug, our other clinic cat. Bob is shy of strangers but good company for our work family.


Doug is a gray and white domestic shorthair. He came to live at PVH in 2019. He has been on a strict diet since he moved in and has lost nearly 10 pounds! He spends most of his time laying around in his apartment but occasionally will grace us with his presence upstairs. Doug loves everyone and has never met a stranger. So much so, he and Bob were impossible to keep away from each other when he first moved in.
