A Word About Our Hospital

Tri-County Small Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital that includes a pharmacy, surgery suite with state-of-the-art technology, on-site x-ray capabilities and a supervised recovery area.


In addition to our licensed veterinarians,

we maintain a staff of highly trained assistants and technicians. 


Clinic Pets

                                          Bella: "The Diva" lives upstairs in her penthouse suite because 
                                          she doesn't always play well with others.

                                          Tweeter: "The Greeter" is our official greeter.  He loves everyone 
                                          and has the loudest "purr" in town.



                                          Monkeyman: "The Boss" routinely fights with Dr. Osborne for the chair in front 
                                          of her computer.  Sometimes he wins, sometimes he loses, but he is always loved!


                                          Elmira: Gone, but not forgotten. Rest in peace.

Dr. Katie Noe, DVM

Growing up, Katie always loved animals, however, it wasn’t until high school that she decided she wanted to be a veterinarian. She was working at Oak Ridge Animal Shelter at the time and then went on to work as assistant at Cedar Bluff Animal Clinic.

Katie is originally from Clinton, TN and grew up and went to school in Knoxville, TN. She graduated from the University of Tennessee with an Animal science degree in 2005 and went on to the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine where she graduated in 2009 with her Degree of Veterinary Medicine. After veterinary school, Katie worked in Charleston, WV at a busy private practice and then moved to Crossville, TN where she worked in another busy private practice that also provided emergency services.

In her spare time, Katie enjoys going for hikes with her dogs, working on crafts and projects, and horseback riding. She currently lives in Clinton, TN and has two horses, “Scarlett” and “Molly.” Her hiking companions include her beagle/border collie mix “Howie” and a chocolate lab named “Marley”. On shorter trips, her senior border collie mix “Fly” tags along as well. Katie has a menagerie of cats that continue to educate her daily on cat behavior and disease as well as snuggle up to sleep with her after a long day of work. 

A friendly greeting.

We want you to feel at home in our spacious waiting room that has designated areas for dogs and cats.
