Making a Difference: ONE PET AT A TIME!

No Appointment Necessary

Knoxville Pet Emergency Clinic is an AFTER-NORMAL HOURS ‘walk-in’ clinic, usually on a first come, first serve basis.  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 necessarily on a new  patient, requiring us to focus our attention on a different patient  coming in, until they are stabilized.

What to Expect

Just like the ER at the local hospital, our job is to SOLVE PROBLEMS, and treat a wide variety of emergencies… as quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively as possible… to reduce or eliminate suffering, and treat a wide variety of problems. We are well trained, experienced, and equipped to deal with any situation your dog or cat might find themselves in.

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 treatments 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’ who 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

We will do our best to help you, as well as your human and animal family members!

If your veterinarian isn't on the above list, THAT IS ALRIGHT.  We are happy to forward the clinic files to whom ever your veterinarian might be, where ever they are, for their normal follow up and care of your pet.

If they are local, they can join the 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.
