From WBIR:

The University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center in Knoxville announced Friday it is temporarily cutting back its emergency service hours for the small animal hospital due to staffing shortages and high overnight caseloads.

The veterinary center said its emergency services in the Small Animal Hospital will now only be open between the hours of 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily.

A couple of years ago the emergency veterinary hospital in Blount County closed. We tried two different emergency veterinary hospitals in Knoxville. We preferred the UT Vet Hospital. There is a third 24 hour veterinary hospital in West Knoxville, which we haven't tried.

Hopefully we won't need the services of an emergency veterinary hospital during this "temporary" cutback at UT Vet Hospital.
