Animal Emergency Care
Tennessee Avenue Animal Hospital offers animal emergency care to Paddock Hills and surrounding areas during regular operating hours. Whether your pet appears to be sick, injured, or simply isn't acting normal, our team will accommodate you and your pet immediately. While we do recommend calling in advance so our veterinarians and technicians can prepare for your arrival, we understand that this is not always possible. We will promptly admit your pet for treatment and do our best to answer your questions and ease your concerns.

Hospitals to Contact for After-Hours Emergencies

You can always tell a good animal hospital when you are first greeted by the staff. Are they happy to be there? That good nature trickles down from the doctor, always. I have had so many good experiences over the years at TAAH, too numerous to mention. But always excellent care, and consideration of my financial situation when it was necessary. 5 STARS. You can really trust them.

Dr. Bo, Maria, and Janet are the absolute best! Dr. Bo spent a lot of time with our Dog, Duke and speaking with us about his care. I've never seen a vet that was so thorough. I highly recommend them!
