Your Welcoming Pet Care Professionals

A Family-Owned Veterinary Clinic
For 25 years, East Ridge Animal Hospital has served pet lovers and their furry friends in the Chattanooga and North Georgia area. In 1996, Dr. Rob and Dr. Karen Knarr purchased the practice and since then, our hospital has doubled in size, adding many modern amenities. We are members of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the Chattanooga Area Chamber. Additionally, we are affiliated with the VCA Regional Institute for vet emergencies and referrals. As a family-owned clinic, we want you to feel like you’re one of us, which is why we strive for true family-oriented service.

I had an amazing experience here. I brought my dog in for an open wound that she acquired that day.

I can’t say enough good things about East Ridge Animal Hospital. Our 7 year old German Shepherd has had skin issues since he was a puppy.
