I have been a client at Cherokee Trail for more than 25 years. Their veterinary doctors & staff are the BEST! Wonderful people, excellent service, kind and caring attention. Boarding services are also excellent whether for doggie day care or boarding a week. My schnauzer loves Cherokee Trails. Thank you Cherokee Trails!

My Siberian Husky has been seen by the veterinarians at Cherokee Trail for the past two years, beginning at 4 months of age. We've seen three of the vets who practice there and all have been wonderful. Our last visit was even better.

There aren't many Siberians in this part of the world and I know they don't see many. When I called to make the appointment I asked that a note be passed to the vet. I wanted to discuss zinc deficiency in Siberians and whether or not my dog was showing early symptoms. Let's face it, it's a rare issue in a relatively rare breed and no one can be expected to know every condition possible in every breed. Not only did Dr McKinnon look it up prior to our visit, she knew the various types and their classic signs. My dog was examined thoroughly and kindly, and fortunately no zinc problems.

When my dog was spayed and had a reaction to a pain medication, we were given priority and not charged for an evening visit. Oh, and evening hours are standard on Mon, Tue, Thurs, and Fri for people who work business hours. They are kind, very professional and worth every dime!

Their facility is always immaculate and the staff is patient and clearly loves animals--not a given in veterinary practices. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Customer Testimonials

So so happy with the care we’ve received from Dr Hansche at CT. He is so gentle and loving with our dogs, from sitting on the floor to pet/play with them, to kissing my sweet Boston terrier on the head. He is so kind, so knowledgeable and gives you options for treatments rather than insisting on only one way. Thankfully all our puppies are healthy but I have the utmost confidence in Dr Hansche for when they are not. Thank you for loving our dogs!

We always have a good experience at Cherokee Trails. All the vets are knowledgeable and kind. In the last two years, we have lost two of our fur babies due to sickness or age. Cherokee Trail took such good care of our fur babies and of us during the difficult times of losing our pets. They are great and we highly recommend them!

Extremely wonderful staff! From the time we entered the door you could just tell it was a place where they truly loved animals, and the staff was so friendly!!!! Beautiful facility as well! Thank y'all so much for making it so easy for my new puppy and I! Dr. Cash was absolutely incredible!

Cats have a reflective layer in their eyes, known as the tapetum lucidum, which magnifies incoming light and allows them to see up to 6 times better than humans can in low light.

Why are dogs so affected by dog whistles while we aren't? Dogs can hear much more high-pitched sounds than humans can; their sense of hearing is much stronger than ours!

When choosing a dog, be sure to research whether that particular breed is good with kids! Although every animal has a unique personality, some are known to be generally better around kids than others!
