At Lovell Animal Hospital, we take an individualized approach to everything we do. When you bring your cat, dog, or guinea pig to us for an annual wellness checkup, our recommendations and treatments will be tailored to your pet’s specific needs in regard to age, activity level, daily habits, and health conditions.
We allocate 30 minutes for every appointment so that we can perform a thorough exam and make proper recommendations. At your pet’s checkup, Dr. Sherri will perform a complete exam that includes looking in your pet’s mouth and ears. When necessary, she might also request bloodwork and fecal or urine samples. Dr. Sherri will also administer appropriate vaccines and parasite control. Every cat and dog in Tennessee must be vaccinated against rabies, but all other vaccine recommendations will be based upon your pet’s individual circumstances and risk factors. Dr. Sherri will fully discuss all options with you and answer any questions you might have.
Senior Pet Care
Pets are living longer these days, and Dr. Sherri has developed a special interest in geriatric medicine. She can help you make the most informed decisions when it comes to helping your older pet maximize his or her quality of life. Lovell Animal Hospital also offers cold laser therapy which can be especially beneficial for older pets suffering from arthritis pain and stiffness, or other conditions that can cause discomfort and limited mobility.
