I took my cat here late one night with a urinary obstruction. They put a plastic catheter in that easily bent and caused urine blockage. They also put it in at a terrible angle so that the urine would drip out onto the cat instead of flowing out. My regular vet was flabergasted. I ended up having to take him to U.T. to have the same procedure reperformed, costing me double what I should have paid to begin with. I am also angry at U.T. because they referred me to this clinic the night that the obstruction occurred with the claim that my cat would would be seen faster than he would down at the vet school.

Several years ago my dog had gotten into some medication that she shouldn't have (my son's adderall). She was all hyped up. I didn't know if she could die from this dose or not. At the least she seemed uncomfortable. The vet seemed confident that he could sedate her and she would be fine and I could pick her up in the morning. According to my own vet who reviewed her records from the emergency clinic he gave her an overdose and she died. My vet was very angry when he reviewed her chart. They didn't call me to tell me she died, they let me show up in the morning and gave her to me in a trash bag!! The vet did not even come out to speak to me. Will never ever go back to them. UT Vet Hospital is wonderfull.

I called and was under the impression of an 85 visit fee, When I got there, the fee went up to 216. I refused to pay this because the fee increased for what I considered totally outrageous for such a small procedure. My dog encountered an injury that needed triple anitbacterial ointment and they wanted to sedate him and place dermatape on it and wanted to upcharge an exta 130 for that. The staff was also rude and I will never return. Terrible customer service and lack of compassion for those who may not have the extra money to spend in such times of financial strain.

While on vacation in Gatlinburg, two of my three dogs got sick late on Sat night. Not knowing where anything was, we had to wait until early Sunday morning to get them to a doctor. Everyone was very nice, and they very quickly got us seen, examined, and medications to take care of my babies. I expected a sky high bill but it was the same it would have been at my regular vet.

yeah all i have to say is "money makes the world go around" how dare a place profess to love animals, yet turn away an animal for help just because the "parents" have no money up front and not enough credit to get this crappy "care card" they tell you to apply for...now as of this afternoon, the doggie has suffered his last moment and taken his last breath..he is now gone from this family..no thanks to snooty selfless peoplee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The staff at the Knoxville Pet Emergency Clinic were very helpful and polite. I was very concerned about my pet and the staff was encouraging and professional. I was also worried as my dog is fearful of men, however, the male doctor on duty put her at ease very quickly. I knew the initial costs up front and was able to make decisions from that point and my dog received excellent care. I'm sorry that they are an emergency clinic as I would be happy to place my pet's routine healthcare in their very capable hands.

I took my pet in 2 weeks ago for gastroenteritis. The clinic vet did a check-up and gave me an on the spot quote. The quote was exactly what I paid. They were helpful however I have had some difficulty having my insurance claim form filled out and faxed over to the insurance company. Veterinarians are in many instances about the money. You can prevent many medical emergencies with preventative services like teeth cleaning and regular check-ups and shots. Make sure you have pet insurance it can reimburse you up to 80%. I also have a care credit card especially for my dog so I don't have to pay out of pocket costs.

I will say that I'm glad this place is there when there are no other options for pet care, however...The desk staff are extremely rude. My total bill was right at $1000 and it scares me to think what I would have done if I hadn't had the money. They would have turned me away. I feel like they are all about money and not about your animal. I realize this is a business, but I paid a lot of money for rude staff. The veterinarians were very nice and helpful, and like I said, I'm glad they were there. It just wouldn't hurt for the front desk staff to have some people skills. You can still ask for money and turn people away and be nice about it.

I took my cat here to be looked at after she was attacked. They did great work fixing her but the attitude of everyone there will keep me from going back. The vet was very, very rude to us and acted like we were overreacting even though my cat ended up needing a $400 surgery. The receptionist was on a personal call most of the time and we had to knock on the door very hard to get her attention. A little girl used the bathroom on the floor and the receptionist did nothing about it. If my cat wasn't already in surgery, I would have left. Stay away from this place.

I have used this clinic several times over the years. It is only open during times when the other clinics are closed. They are a bit pricey, but they quote everything to you before they do anything. They are kind and compassionate and give your animal the best possible care in a difficult situation.

PROS: Open when others are closed
CONS: Pricey, but that's because of the after hours.

I took my cat here late on a Friday night after he had gotten into a fight with a dog. The front desk staff seemed unconcerned about my cat. The vet took x-rays and told us he had no internal injuries, gave him pain meds and antibiotics and sent us home with instructions to follow up with our regular vet the next day. When we got him home I was extremely surprised by his condition. He was clearly in shock and still bleeding from his wounds. He couldn't control his hind legs. I don't understand why they did not keep him for monitoring overnight, but they did not. When I got to my vet on Saturday morning the situation was clearly much more grave than we were led to believe. He did in fact have a penetrating abdominal wound and his condition had deteriorated dramatically in the 8 or so hours since we left the night before. Our vet sent us to another Pet Emergency Clinic and our experience there was completely professional and compassionate. It turns out our cat was in critical condition and we unfortunately had to put him to sleep. I am not sure the outcome would have been any different had I gone to the second Pet Emergency Clinic on Friday night but I know I would have felt much better about the standard of care and competency and concern for my cat. I would not recommend going here when there are other outstanding options in Knoxville.

AFTER SPENDING ALMOST $500 AND 2 TRIPS TO THIS PLACE, THE VET SAID SHE HAD DIAGNOSED MY DOG, BUT COME TO FIND OUT THAT THEY ONLY RAN EXPENSIVE TESTS AND MISDIAGNOSED HER. AFTER TAKING HER TO HER NORMAL VET SHE HAD PARVO, A $20 TEST. IT WAS OBVIOUS FROM HER SYMPTOMS SHE HAD PARVO, BUT THEY NEVER RAN THAT TEST. MY CARECREDIT WOULD NOT GO THRU ON A SUNDAY EVENING SO THEY DEMANDED THEIR PAYMENT BEFORE ALLOWING MY DAUGHTER TO LEAVE. THEY WERE PLANNING ON KEEPING MY DOG OVER NIGHT, SO IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM FOR THEM TO RUN THE CARD IN THE MORNING. THEY WERE SHOWN ON THE COMPUTER THAT I HAD A $3000 BALANCE ON THE CARD. THESE PEOPLE WERE EXTREMELY RUDE AND IN MY MIND GUILTY OF ANIMAL CRUELTY. THEY DID NOT HELP MY DOG AT ALL, CONSIDERING $500 WAS SPENT. SHE ALSO POOPED ALL OVER HER SELF WHEN IN THEIR CARE AND THEY NEVER EVEN TRIED TO CLEAN HER. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANIMALS AT ALL. THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY.
