In reality, most pets prefer Dogwood Animal Hospital of South Knoxville because the doctors and staff are kind and compassionate, keeping your pet's health as their first priority. Licensed veterinarians, Harry McLeod and Ruth Sloan McLeod have a combined total of 59 years of experience in veterinary health care. Your pet's health and well- being is very important to them, and they will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.
Dogwood Animal Hospital has been serving the pets of South Knoxville, South Knox County and Seymour since 1988. We handle a variety of medical, surgical, and dental issues. A former emergency clinic veterinarian, Harry McLeod, or Dr. Mac as he is known, can handle most illnesses or issues your pets might have. Ruth Sloan McLeod, aka Dr. Sloan, loves your pets like you do, treating all pets like they were her own. She has 28 years of experience in all phases of the small animal veterinary field. Beyond first rate pet care, we make our clinic comfortable, kid-friendly, and a calm environment so your dog, cat, or other pet can relax, either in the divided waiting room or in the exam room, while waiting to meet the veterinarian. The practice is intentionally small so that the doctors and staff can give each patient the attention they deserve. Appointments are scheduled 30 minutes apart to provide adequate time to assess all issues. Walk-ins are worked in, if necessary, but are discouraged so that we may give every patient adequate consideration and assessments.
We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos in the Veterinary Topics and Member Topics sections. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention. If you want to ask a question, call 865-577-0344 or email us and we'll promptly get back to you. Our South Knoxville veterinary office is very easy to get to, and you can find directions on our Contact Us page. You can also subscribe to our newsletter which is created especially for Knoxville pet owners.
