KNOXVILLE PET EMERGENCY CLINIC
We will do our very best to treat your pet when ever possible, and to give you all the options (when there are some). We understand, after doing this for years, that goals and priorities are different for each client. Please don’t think we are callous or negative when costs are discussed; in general, we are the most affordable after-hours option available in the area. We try to discuss any and all expenses prior to spending your money, to help avoid any confusion, misunderstanding, with the odds clearly stated as to what you can reasonably expect, based on our experience. We do care, however, we are not a ‘free clinic’ and some treatment options absolutely cost more than others; and sadly, no treatments come with a 100% guarantee.
We will always try to do our very best to ease or eliminate any suffering or illness your pet might have, within your budget. We do offer ‘CareCredit’ which is usually willing and able to help make some decisions a little easier for those people that don’t have funds readily available.
We are open after-normal-hours, all weekends & holidays, when your local veterinarian offices are closed. We are open continuously Friday 7:00pm – Monday 7:00am 24 hour veterinarian on site Saturday & Sunday, and all major holidays, because we know that accidents don’t take time off, and your pets don’t celebrate holidays. Our Weekday Hours Are: Nights – Monday – Thursday 7:00pm – 7:00am
Making a Difference: ONE PET AT A TIME!
Knoxville Pet Emergency Clinic is an AFTER-NORMAL HOURS 'walk-in' clinic, usually on a first come, first serve bases. However, like an ER, there are no 'appointments,' though you are welcome and invited to call us to let us know what the problem is, or that you're on the way in, so we might save you some time when you get here, or help with any special transportation instructions. (The exception would be in cases of extreme emergencies, where lifesaving measures might be immediately necessary on a new patient, requiring us to focus our attentions on a different patient coming in, until they are stabilized.
We seldom check social pages. As we are busy saving lives when we can, and doing things with the family or sleeping when we aren't working. If you have a question during our hours, CALL US... if it's during the day, please contact your day Vet.
The latest digital X-Ray Scans, blood testing, and emergency surgery services are all done in-house and on site. When it comes to the health and needs of dogs & cats, we are ready with experienced staff when your regular veterinarian is closed: nights, weekends, and all major holidays.
We service ALL breeds of domestic dogs and cats, big and small, young and old.
Sorry, but we are not set up to deal with birds, reptiles, wildlife, or any large animals (horses, cows, llamas, pigs, etc.).
Right off I-40, exit 387, by start of Alcoa Hwy (US129, Airport Hwy). Servicing Knoxville, surrounding areas, as well as parts of Southern Kentucky.
An emergency is any event, behavior, or situation that you, as your pet’s number one advocate, know to be out of the ordinary or concerning in appearance, sound, or different actions (than normal for that pet).
You can always call to discuss your pet, but be aware that you are the only one who can actually see your pet’s behavior and know your pet’s normal behavior. 1-865-637-0114 Please Note: We CAN NOT SEE THEM, therefore can not 'diagnose or treat' OVER THE PHONE.

If they are local, serving your pets in the greater Knoxville area, and aren't on the above list, they can join our list of happy veterinarians whose clients we gladly serve in the off hours for any critical care and emergency needs, until that veterinarian is able to take over in their own clinic. Just let us know... or ask them to contact us.
It is our policy to be straightforward in discussing fees and services. We are an AFTER HOURS EMERGENCY CLINIC, not a FREE clinic.
You will be provided with an estimate, and any available options, once your pet is examined by our doctor, often with the best case scenario, as well as the worst case (as sad as that sometimes is).
The costs are not going to be the same as a regular clinic. (Same as an ER visit isn't the same as your regular doctor). The training, equipment needed, and variety of tools we have to keep in stock are also often different (than a regular care provider). Therefore, some emergency care will necessarily cost more than routine health care. If there is a financial concern, please notify us in advance, as we do not wish to create any hardship for anyone.
A deposit will be required at the time of admission. The remainder of the bill is due when you pick up your pet.
We accept payment with cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.. For people without major credit cards, we also offer CareCredit. To see if you qualify go to carecredit.com or call 1-800-859-9975. And they also take ASPCA Pet Health Insurance!
