About Nashville Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency
Our mission is to honor the human-animal bond in all we do by working to improve the care of our patients, the experience of our clients, and the health of our team of specialty and emergency veterinary professionals.
We work with primary care veterinarians to provide 24-hour care for pets. Sometimes pets require advanced medical treatments that primary care veterinarians may not provide. Primary care veterinarians determine when a pet needs to see a specialist, then refers the animal to one of our specialty services.
Our specialists treat pets for conditions that require advanced surgical techniques, care for cancer and other internal diseases, problems with the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord, pets needing intensive care, allergies, skin problems, and rehabilitation.
