Our mission is to honor the human-animal bond in all we do by working to improve the care of our patients, the experiences of our clients, and the health of our team of specialty and emergency veterinarians.

We work with your primary care veterinarian to provide emergency care for pets. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, please contact your primary care veterinarian first.  If your vet’s office is closed, bring your pet directly to NVS. Our hospitals are located at 2971 Sidco Drive, Nashville, Tennessee, 37204, and 685 Kennedy Lane, Clarksville, Tennessee, 37040. You don’t need a referral for your pet to be treated in our emergency room.

Sometimes pets require advanced medical treatments that your primary care veterinarian may not provide.  Your vet will determine if your pet needs to see a specialist, and will refer you to one of our specialty services.

Our specialists treat pets for conditions that require advanced surgical techniques, care for cancer and other internal diseases, problems with the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord, pets needing intensive care, allergies, skin problems, and rehabilitation.
