Dr.Hicks is amazing! She was so good with my dog and the staff were so friendly! I'm usually skeptical about vets and never found one I had liked over the years but me and my dad loved Dr.Hicks and we... will be coming here from here on out with our future fur babies! My dog sure did enjoy the place too� See More

We brought our baby Moe to see Dr. Hicks. We tracked her down from where she used to be. She has always taken such good care of our babies. She is the best. Very observant, she saw what was wrong with... Moe when we where seeing something else. We completely trust her and we will not be going anywhere else. She really cares about her patients (our babies). We definitely recommend her !!!! See More

Dr. Deborah Hicks is the absolute best! We started using her about eight years ago when we first moved to Tennessee. When our dog became older with many ailments, she would always be available if we... needed her and knew what to do. She is very caring and attentive to both the animal and human client. We would definitely recommend her!!! See More

Dr. Lollar and her staff helped us with our old, sick kitty. They brought us in and treated us all as family and cried with our children. We will be back with our other animals. Thank you for your kin...dness and compassion. See More

Though I missed seeing Dr. Lollar today, it was good to meet Dr. Deborah Hicks and have her treat our sweet Gus for a wound. Dr. Hicks has a sweet and compassionate personality for the animals and a g...reat rapport for the human clients. Thanks again to Southwind for being available to our needs. See More

I'm so impressed by Dr. Lollar and her friendly staff. She took her time examining and explaining everything to me. My dog had gotten bitten by something in the woods and I was so worried about her! S...he put me at ease, didn't recommend any unnecessary testing, and the next day Daisy is already back to her old self.
Monday is surgery day but she got me in between surgeries and I'm so grateful for that!

I had a degu who was very old and had developed cancer. He had a huge tumor that grew very fast. I called so many places about putting him down and they all wanted to charge $70 or more to put him do...wn. Seaweed was not even a pound! It almost came down to letting him die in pain til I call Southwind. I explained to them he was old and wasn't even a pound but we needed him put down before it got to painful for him. I cried When they told me they would only charge $25! This place is in it for the animals!! Now me and my husband will use them for now on! See More

We met Dr Lollar by accident. Our sweet Great Pyrenees mix was very old and sick and we knew we needed to euthanize him soon for his sake even though we didn't want to let go.

My mom and I were home from the store and we saw this RV like thing in someone's driveway and it said MOBILE VETRINARIAN or something like that. My mom said, "Look them up and see if they would come to the house to put Sterling to sleep. It would be so much easier on him. I just hate the thought of taking him to an office for this." I looked up "mobile veterinarians" and it pulled up Southwinds and I called. I made the appointment for the date my parents had already previously decided on. The receptionist asked if I wanted to pay now so I wouldn't have to worry about it then and of course the answer was "yes".

Little did we know I had NOT called the RV Vet but Dr Lollar and I'm so glad I did. She sat on the living room floor with us and explained everything and stayed with us for quite a while after and offered to help my dad carry Sterling.

I'll never go to another vet again. I have also nominated her for City View Magazine's BEST of the BEST in the veterinarian category. She is a wonderful vet with so much compassion. She not only took care of our Sterking but took care of his people because we will always be Sterking's people. Dr Lollar truly has more grace and compassion than probably anyone o have ever met. If you have a furry family member the see her.

I first met Doctor Lollar a few years ago when she was working at another veterinarians office in Maryville and immediately loved her, I knew right then that this was the vet that I wanted to use there on out. Needless to say I was heartbroken when I needed to take one of my girls back in and she was no longer there. After a very bad experience with another vet I came home and Googled her and found out she had bought this clinic. I was ecstatic!!! So when it was time for my girls yearly visit I made an appointment and couldn't have been happier with the results. Doctor Lollar and her whole staff at Southwind are amazing! You couldn't ask for better people to take care of your furrbabies. You can tell that they love what they do, and they don't try to rush you out the door. They took almost an hour extra with my girl who had had the bad experience and was terrified when we first got there, just getting her comfortable and over her nervousness. Doctor Lollar also gave me a tour of the facilit while I was there. First and foremost it is CLEAN, you don't deal with any unpleasant odors as soon as you walk in. It's also spacious and very up to date equipment wise. My girls have found their FUR-EVER doctors . I would highly recommend them to everyone who is looking to get the best care possible for their animals. I know I won't ever be going anywhere else. See More

I wanted to take a moment to share my very positive experience thus far with Southwind. Some folks who are reading this may be considering switching from another vet in Maryville, like I was. I am that I did. Dr. Laviola and Dr. Hill are both kind, caring, and attentive. The main difference I noticed was how much time they are willing to spend with me and my pets. The office is clean, well staffed, and calm, which was a welcome change from my old vet. My cat was under the weather recently and even though I was a new patient, they held my hand through the entire ordeal, taking lots of time to explain the situation and every option. I look forward to working with them with all my pets now and in the future. See More

Can't say enough good things about Southwind! I've been a client from day 1 and can't imagine going anywhere else. I recently was faced with the decision to euthanize one of my cats. The staff was pro...fessional and knowledgeable, but more importantly, they were loving and compassionate. When the staff cries right along with you, you KNOW you're in the right place. See More

Dr Heather is the sweetest and most concerned vet I've ever been to. I appreciate her so much and everyone in her office is so friendly and nice! I'm so glad I found her and, even though I travel 30 m...inutes to see her, I'm very satisfied with her care! ❤️️ See More

Dr. Laviola was extremely helpful when my Yorkie was having a really bad seizure! She was just about to close up and I came in and she didn't hesitate to help! She did great! I've also used their serv...ices for teeth cleaning/extractions and the dogs feel much better now! Great place! See More

They were so nice when I lost my Tigger to congestive heart failure. And now that I have my Cash, they are super sweet to him.

This sweet puppy just had a booster vaccination. In the first few months of life, we strongly encourage pets to get booster vaccinations — they provide optimal protection against disease. The first dose serves to prime the immune system and subsequent doses help to produce antibodies for protection against disease.

Our client is teaching her puppy how to brush her teeth! The importance of brushing is vital for dental care in pets — it is also a preventative, active way of slowing down tartar and plaque buildup.

• Keep people food out of the reach of your pet, and ask your guests to do the same.
• Don't leave your pet alone in the room with lit candles, a decorated tree or potpourri.
• Keep holiday plants (especiall...y holly, mistletoe and lilies) out of the reach of pets.
• If you have a cat, consider leaving the tinsel off your tree.
• Secure your Christmas tree to keep it from falling over in the event your dog bumps into it or your cat wants to climb it.
• If you’re entertaining guests, provide a safe place for your pet to escape the excitement (such as a kennel, crate, perching place, scratching post shelf or hiding place).

Thanksgiving awareness for our pets! 5 important tips to help them stay safe and keep them thankful!

1) We always love a good feast during the holidays. It is important to remember that our pets cannot digest the fatty foods that usually fill our tables. Turkey, ham, and the skins around the meat can cause an acute illness called pancreatitis — it can vary in severity and can be life threatening. The bones from the carcass can also be problematic to the digestive tract and sh...ould be avoided as a treat.
2) Keep trash cans closed and protected from your pets.
3) Chocolate and other sweet treats with artificial sweeteners can be harmful and should not be shared with your pets.
4) Parties can be overwhelming and full of loud noises. Keep anxious pets in a quiet room with comforting music to keep them stress free (and your guest from an unexpected injury).
5) Watch all of your exits and make sure they can’t make a quick escape outside busy doorways.
