★★★★★ Nice location, very friendly and accommodatingJoe Van V.Joe Van V. ★★★★★ We’ve been taking our dogs here since 2021, we’ve never had a bad experience! No matter what we go in for we’ve never left feeling like enough wasn’t done. Last year I had a very sick puppy, I was never given false hope, a very direct game plan was put into place by Doctor Felty. She did everything she could for my baby. I truly could not have asked for a better vet to have on my side during all of that. Another vet I would like to give a shout out to is Doctor Lewis, she is amazing, she will get down on the floor with your pet to examine them. She is so kind and so hands on.

Especially Dr. Shulman for the entire surgery experience.Kit B.Kit B. ★★★★★ My dog got very sick and they were able to get me in at the first cancellation. Heather and Dr.Brown were amazing. I was very emotional and scared and they were understanding and caring. I had to leave my dog for a few hours for testing and fluids. Heather was very attentive and loving to my baby. Her tests came back very concerning. I thought I was going to have to put her down. Dr.Brown made sure I knew all my options and she felt like we should try some things before putting her down.

The entire staff from the front desk to techs are wonderful. However, the true selling point is Dr. Kolb 😊 Dr. Kolb’s genuine care, knowledge and sensitivity to our dog Finn’s needs is unsurpassed.

My finance and I moved to Chattanooga about 2 years ago and was looking for a new vet. We had a terrible experience at the first one we picked out and honestly prolonged finding a new one. Then a good friend recommended this location due to unexpected ear issues with our boxer. So we called and they was able to fit us in the next day! The staff was so friendly and loving to our fur baby. The vet doctor explained everything and was very understanding to our concerns. I’m thankful to finally have found our Vet Home and somewhere comfortable to take Diesel. Thank you so much.Shelby N.Shelby N. ★★★★★ Friendly helpful staffRebecca Lee McClary P.Rebecca Lee McClary P. ★★★★★ Dr. Schulman is absolutely the best.

Appointments, boarding, and prescription filling are timely and thorough! I love them. Happy Holidays !Lynn W.Lynn W. ★★★★★ Got my dog in last minute to remove a fishhook from his nose. I had an appointment I needed to be at in a few hours. They explained they’d need to put Charlie under anesthesia to remove the barbed hook. They did so and had him awake and happy walking out the door in no time. They were also very busy and booked up with appointments that day. Grateful for Riverview Animal Hospital and their staff.Elizabeth H.Elizabeth H. ★★★★★ I've been taking my dog here for years and I have not one single complaint.Melisa B.Melisa B. ★★★★★ I’ve used Riverview Animal Hospital for decades. The vets and vet techs are top notch. They have always given personalized care to my dogs, from puppies to elder care. They give me options and listen to my input, as they believe I know my pets better than anyone else. They go above and beyond in finding information for me if they don’t have the answers, and are prompt in returning phone calls and answering concerns. I’ve never felt rushed during appointments or after. I am always made to feel they care about my animals and myself. The vets and vet techs at Riverview are simply the best. I will always recommend them, given the chance.Laurie H.Laurie H. ★★★★★ I recently had to bring my dog in to see a vet on short notice after an injury. The staff was very helpful, courteous, and professional. They examined my dog for any signs of injury, patiently answered my questions (and all without making me feel rushed because we all know vets' offices are busy all day), prescribed treatment, and a course of action for recovery.Grant L.Grant L. ★★★★★ Dr. Lovett & Haley were absolutley incredible - My aussie has hip displacia & arthritis, & has not been moving around well..

I would highly recomend going to see them!Preston W.Preston W. ★★★★★ Dr. Lovett and the staff, especially Haley D. and Jason, were very thorough, caring and compassionate when we brought in our Mastiff.

Also very affordable!Justin P.Justin P. ★★★★★ Very nice professional staff. Facilities are clean.Agent ZAgent Z ★★★★★ I have taken 2 cats here a year apart. They had 2 different experiences and I wish I could give them 10 stars for that.In 2020, I adopted My first cat from an agency. He was vaccinated for Parvo but caught it anyway. I brought him her for an emergency visit and they squeezed us in. I was struggling at the time but the vet helped us with instructions on care. We didn’t know he had Parvo at the time. He got sicker and died before I could get him in. They cremated him and gave me a really nice card and gift set for him.My second cat’s first visit was for emergency boarding, last year, as there was a gas leak near our complex. The smell overwhelmed us completely. He didn’t have the greatest time since he is an extremely shy guy. He was boarded again this year as we faced another emergency. We found out that he doesn’t like other cats or men this time around. We got to meet and talk with the cat boarding staff. They were so sweet and compassionate about their care for the cats. Unfortunately, mines is just extremely shy so he was stressed but that wasn’t the staffs fault at all.The staff was kind and professional every time I visited. This is one of the few visits I recommend.melanee M.melanee M. ★★★★★ I don't think I could possibly say enough good things about Dr. Marisa Shulman. We met her when our kitten got attacked by a dog and she took incredible care of our kitten. She has also saw us through the later years of our dog's life, and was extremely compassionate and warm through the process. We are so grateful to her. Pets are not something that come first hand to me and I never felt judged for that. Thank you for your kind loving atmosphere and taking care of our sweet pup Barley until we had to say good bye.Tanya H.Tanya H. ★★★★★ Ashley Seltzer was unbelievable! She was so incredibly in depth and patient with me and my cat. She made sure that we were taken care inside and outside of the clinic. Her advice went MILES.Trevy H.Trevy H. ★★★★★ We have several animals and whether small or big issues or simple needs Riverview Animal Hospital doctors and staff go above and beyond in excellent care. We have been with them for many, many years and have never had a poor experience. Their customer service, sincere & conscientious care, professional knowledge in helping our pets is top notch. Pricing is very fair as well. Love them!NancyB M.NancyB M. ★★★★★ The Riverview Animal team has been caring for my four legged family members since they were in their original bungalow in the N. Chattanooga Riverview neighborhood. The have continually provided excellent care through each of my pets lives from their early days to when it was time to say goodbye. I cannot recommend their services enough, the team is kind, caring and knowledgeable.courtney C.courtney C. ★★★★★ Such kind and caring assistant, Amy, and doctor, Jennifer. They helped a lot with the owner's too. Thanks.millie F.millie F. ★★★★★ Simply the best! We take all of our dogs there. Everyone is so kind and have the absolute best bedside manner.

Made us feel very comfortable, will be back!Ana L.Ana L. ★★★★★ Very kind and helpful staffLauren Y.Lauren Y. ★★★★★ Took great care of my pup and I didn’t break the bank. Win-win in a ruff situation.Gus G.Gus G. ★★★★★ I've been bringing my 6 year old dog here since she was a puppy. I've always been happy, but my chihuahua's anxiety normally makes her a difficult patient. We went for her yearly check up today and saw Dr. Kolb for the first time. She "spoke chi-chi" to my anxious girl and it made all the difference in the world! I was so impressed with the combination of Dr. Kolb and Victoria- they both were so calm and kind. Phoebe and I are so grateful for humans like you! 🙂Casey M.Casey M. ★★★★★ I cannot say enough good things about this animal hospital. The level of care and compassion they provide to both animals and their owners is truly outstanding. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with a warm and friendly atmosphere, making you and your furry friend feel at ease. The vet and staff are incredibly knowledgeable and genuinely care about the well-being of your pet. They take the time to listen to your concerns, answer all your questions, and provide thorough explanations of any procedures or treatments. The facilities are clean, well-maintained, and stocked with all the necessary equipment. I have complete trust in this animal hospital and highly recommend their exceptional services to any pet owner in need. Your furry friend will be in excellent hands here!Megan H.Megan H. ★★★★★ Truly can’t sing the praises of this clinic enough! Everyone on staff is absolutely wonderful. I have two dogs that come here, one of which is particularly difficult to work with as he is extremely anxious around people. Dr. Shulman and her techs were so kind and patient with him and I could not be more thankful.I wholeheartedly recommend this place!!Julia L.Julia L. ★★★★★ Samantha from Riverview is amazing. She went out of her way to text me after I was frantically calling vets in town for a last-minute second opinion for our dog who had been diagnosed with a grim prognosis for spleen cancer the day prior. Our dog means the world to us, and many vets we called that day barely let me finish before cutting me off and saying they had no appointments. Samantha took my call and really empathized with our situation. She promised she would call us immediately if there were any cancellations that day - which she did. She even texted me as a follow up on what I imagine was her personal cell phone just to ensure I got her message and that the spot was open for our girl. Fortunately we had already found another vet in town who could rush our pup in that morning, but I still really appreciated this extra effort on Samantha’s part. That way a truly difficult day full of stress and decisions, and her kindness made a huge difference.R BR B ★★★★★ A huge thanks to the staff at Riverview for being so accommodating and taking such great care of our sweet kitty. Highly recommend!!!Amy M.Amy M. ★★★★★ We arrived 20 mins early, and they were able to get us in and out with 2 pets!! Great service!Alice P.Alice P. ★★★★★ These people love dogs!!!Andy P.Andy P. ★★★★★ My ordinary vet's office couldn't take a walk-in, and another just kept me on hold as I was trying to find help for my dog's ear problems. I called Riverview, and they were quick to answer, available for a walk-in, and when I arrived, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The veterinarian actually took time to explain what was going on with my pup's ear infection, and was very thorough and friendly. I felt like they truly cared. I'm going to make them my primary vet's office from now on.J TJ T ★★★★★ Without a doubt the best vets in town!Shawn N.Shawn N. ★★★★★ They are seriously the best. My dog, Dante, has had a few health issues pop up as he is getting older, and Riverview has always taken the most amazing care of us. He is dog reactive and very anxious, and all the techs and vets are so accommodating and kind in helping him feel okay and safe. Their staff is compassionate, attentive, and understanding. I always feel like Dante and I are in the best hands. Thank you all for everything you do ❤️Emily P.Emily P.js_loader
