At Chattanooga Holistic Animal Institute, we have made our best effort to develop and construct an incredibly eco friendly, locally supported and energy efficient structure. Dr. Smith designed the floor plan to be an inviting and organic space, so with the help of a local architect, the vision was transformed and a fantastic building was created.

The animal hospital has an energy efficient ductless air system, skylights for natural light, and a landscape designed by a local designer to incorporate regional plants with an emphasis on visual flow. We use energy efficient appliances and lighting, and all the millwork was done by a local carpenter that utilizes only reclaimed wood.

The Running Numbers sculpture pictured below was donated to CHAI by nearby Sculpture Fields as a thank you for helping to beautify the Southside community. The artist is John Clement and you can see many more of his beautiful creations in Southside’s Montague Park.


Loved this place! Took my rat and they were so nice and caring. Every single staff member was excellent and seemed like they loved being there. It was clean. As a pet owner, you never want to need to go to the vet, but when you do, I'm glad I have a place like this to use.

My dog just had a non-anesthetic teeth cleaning. The staff did a great job on my dog's teeth. Every member of the staff was professional, attentive, and caring. I would highly recommend this veterinary center.

I took my dog Chief here because my vet had said his liver enzymes were high long story short they listened to my concerns, x-rays were done and we were off to the ER for surgery. I loved the care they gave my baby and the peace of mind they gave me. I am switching vets needless to say! Love them!
