When you peruse the Chilhowee Veterinary Clinic’s website, you will see that this clinic is a full-service veterinary hospital and clinic for small animals. They can give your four-legged family member an annual checkup, get them up to date on their shots, and treat an illness or an injury.

The Dedicated Team


The clinic has six excellent doctors ready to treat your pet. Dr. Mark Steeley has been at the clinic since 2007, and he specializes in soft tissue surgery and dentistry. Dr. Walt West was one of the founders of the clinic back in 1983, and although he is semi-retired now, he does see patients from time to time. Dr. Becca Archer is a native to the Knoxville area, and she is a proud member of the Chilhowee family. Dr. Angiolina Trump specializes in low-stress handling and internal medicine, and Dr. Rachel Cox is a Maryville native that returned home after gaining her veterinary medicine degree in Texas.

The team of excellent doctors couldn’t do what they do without the support of their groomers and other ancillary staff. The Chilhowee Veterinary Clinic is happy to have Shanti Mynatt, Missy Hankins, Julie Burns, and Shelley DeLoach on their team.


The Mission


The mission statement for the clinic is indicative of the quality of care you can expect your pet to receive while a patient at the facility.

“To improve the lives of pets in Blount County by educating their people, providing wellness care and treatment options throughout their lives. To build a relationship with the pet owners and pet, so we can personalize the treatment plan to fit their lifestyle and life stage.”


As you can see, you can expect to receive the highest quality of care when you bring your furry friend to the caring doctors and staff at this Maryville clinic. Most of the patients at the clinic are dogs or cats, but they can help other small animals on a case by case basis. If they cannot treat your “exotic” pet, they can help you find the right doctor for the job.


As a full-service clinic and hospital, the Chilhowee Veterinary Clinic can provide the following services:


  • Medical Services
  • Emergency Services
  • Pet Grooming
  • Small Animal Boarding


The medical services include things like wellness exams, spays and neuters, dental care, and blood work. They can also do geriatric screenings as your pet ages and supply you with prescription diet foods as needed. They can do emergency soft tissue surgeries should your pet become injured.
