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.
