Puppy love from UTCVM

Each year, our board-certified specialists at the John and Ann Tickle Small Animal Hospital at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center diagnose and treat more than 15,000 dogs and cats, some from as far away as Canada and Hawaii.

Our Veterinary Medical Center has clinical laboratory services in bacteriology, clinical and anatomic pathology, endocrinology, immunology, parasitology, pharmacology and toxicology, and virology. Specialized equipment and facilities for in-depth diagnostics and therapy include: a recently renovated intensive care unit, Holmium YAG and CO2 laser units, digital radiography (X-rays), color-flow Doppler ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as diagnostic nuclear medicine facilities, a high-end linear accelerator for administration of radiation therapy, an advanced rehabilitation suite with underwater treadmills and aquatic therapy, and a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber.
