We want to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to all our clients and their pets for your enthusiastic support since we opened Lake Chatuge Animal Hospital in 2005 and Lake Chatuge Animal Hospital in 2011. By partnering with us you’ve helped us develop a flourishing practice with a reputation for excellence in comprehensive and proactive patient care, a legacy that will continue for decades to come. At the end of 2017, we joined forces with National Veterinary Associates (NVA), a development that gives us access to cutting edge technologies and treatment options to enhance client and patient services, provides staff training, career development, and benefits, as well as access to a whole team of experts that provide accounting, tax, and payroll services so we can focus on what we do best: patient care. Partnering with NVA ensures we can continue to advance the medical aspect of what we do consistent with our core values because we C.A.R.E.:
Compassion toward our clients and their pets
Accountability to be up-to-date in veterinary procedures
Respect for the concerns and feelings of our client
Excellence by providing the best available care for your pets
Let me be clear, Dr. McClearen and I will continue to make all the medical decisions regarding our clients and patients at LCAH and TCAC. Our partnership with NVA ensures we have access to better funding and expertise to advance our hospitals’ needs as the world of veterinary medicine continues to rapidly evolve. A perfect example is the recent installation of our new Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber that uses low-pressure oxygen as a natural substance to treat swelling, pain and inflammation, improve circulation, and treat head/spinal injuries, severe wounds, stubborn infections, and much more.

We are very pleased that our partnership with NVA will allow Lake Chatuge Animal Hospital and Tri County Animal Clinic to continue practicing and serving our patients and clients for many years to come, fulfilling our mission to provide the Best Family Care for Every Pet, Every Client, Every Time.
