Officials with Animal Emergency & Specialty Center will introduce the new state-of-the-art veterinary hospital at an open house Saturday, April 23, that includes a Smoky Mountain DockDogs competition. The aquatic contests, for dogs that love to run, jump and swim, will continue in an abbreviated version Sunday, April 24.
Owned by Innovetive Petcare Inc., the Animal Emergency & Specialty Center is a 24-hour facility equipped with CT, ultrasound, endoscopy and full orthopedic surgical suites. Its specialists handle surgical, orthopedic, cancer (oncologic) and avian and exotic animal cases.
“Animal Emergency & Specialty Center has been serving Chattanooga from a smaller facility on Shallowford Road,” says marketing director Dr. Karen Parker. “This new facility on Lee Highway is larger, more accessible and encourages greater coordination between the emergency doctors and specialists.”
