Monday is surgery day but she got me in between surgeries and I'm so grateful for that!
My mom and I were driv...ing home from the store and we saw this RV like thing in someone's driveway and it said MOBILE VETRINARIA
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
I'll never go to another vet again. I have also nominated her for City View Magazine's
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 favorite part of veterinary medicine is meeting the new members of the family.💗We enjoy watching them grow, develop into their own personalities, and instill the most amazing feelings of love and generosity one could ever experience in their hearts. Puppy Love 🐾
Thank you Maryville, TN and neighboring communities for sharing this beautiful rock with Southwind. May we have many new friendships in the year 2018.

Happy Holidays from Southwind Animal Hospital! We will be open normal hours tomorrow (Saturday) and will be closed on Monday, Christmas Day. We would like to wish you and your pets a joyful celebration. Here are a few tips to protect your pets during the holiday season:
• 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).
Beatrice and Remy recently had their annual Wellness examination with Dr. Hicks. Our Wellness exams are an important component of managing the healthcare of your pets. Exams include a complete physical, along with diagnostic testing, protective vaccinations, and parasite checks. Many times, the onset of disease can be detected, allowing for early intervention. Call for an appt. — we’ll be glad to help with questions or concerns about your beloved pets!
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.
