Medical Records Request

If you have elected another practice to provide continuation of care for your pet, or need vaccination records for grooming or boarding, you can request copies of records to be faxed or e-mailed to the practice of your choosing. A mailing fee will apply for records that are to be mailed; however, you may pick them up in person at our office during regular business hours.  We will do our best to accommodate any request for records within 24-48 hours that are made on a week day.  Weekend requests will be processed as if they were received on Monday. 

Tennessee Law requires that all request for medial records be provided in writing. Fax and email are acceptable platforms to request records.  To expedite your request follow the instructions below.

Steps to request your pet’s records:

  1. Follow this link to Request Records: 
  2. Complete the form providing us your first and last name, your phone number on file,  and your E-mail.  If this information does not match our records it could delay your request as we must confirm the identity of whom is requesting records.  
  3. In the Message Box Provide us a written statement requesting records.  Include your pets name, the name of the facility we are sending the records to, and contact information such as fax number or email.
