Employee Testimonials

At Nashville Veterinary Specialists, we are dedicated to our employees' happiness, success, and growth.

When you join NVS you will feel like you are being adopted into a family of amazing people. There is a real effort to integrate each new team member, by meeting with representatives of each department, meeting with the administration that shows you all the things you need to know about the workings of your new job. You will actually get employee reviews, and ongoing learning of skills is a goal.  

I have never worked with a group that has been so proactive when concerns arise; there is a measured response to daily challenges, and the health of the team is actually part of the mission statement. What is the most unique thing is that the happiness and mental health of the employees is given a consistent effort. From day one, it just felt better here than in my previous workplaces.

I enjoy working at Nashville Veterinary Specialists because the chemistry the team has is friendly and cohesive. Future employees can expect a high-paced work environment where all of their skills will be used.

My favorite thing about being an animal emergency assistant is saving animals and seeing the owners’ happy faces. The compassion and understanding we provide our patients, and their owners, are what make Nashville Veterinary Specialists stand out.

Our Environmental Commitment

At Nashville Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency, our first priority is to our patients and clients.  We also have a broader concern and commitment to being environmentally responsible.

Doing our very best job as medical care providers requires specific resources like disposable medical supplies, powerful medical equipment, and industrial strength kennel and facility cleaning products.  Access to these resources can make for a fully operational and successful clinic, but it can also make for a highly wasteful and polluting facility.

Renewable Energy

We harness solar energy through our 28-megawatt solar system which supplies nearly 40% of our energy needs. We also have six 4' x 4' skylights to allow natural daylight into our hospital, reducing energy demands.
