PetWellClinic was the idea of Dr. Sam Meisler as a way to make preventive care affordable and convenient for dog and cat owners in the Knoxville, TN area.

In 2009, during the Great Recession and at the suggestion of his wife, Julie, Dr. Sam Meisler came up with his idea of the PetWellClinic. “The original idea came up while reading the New York Times in bed with my morning coffee way back in 2006,” said Dr. Meisler. “In fact, it was my wife who turned to me and showed me an article on the Walgreen’s Take Care Clinics and asked me why couldn’t we do that for veterinary care?”

“So many of the diseases that we see in practice are preventable at a minimum of expense. If we can make prevention affordable and convenient, less pets will succumb to devastating diseases like parvovirus and feline leukemia.”

“And we have now added veterinary care for minor ailments and chronic conditions. If we can do the simple things well and efficiently, we can make most of the conditions pets suffer from affordable to treat.”

– Sam Meisler DVM

PetWellClinic, from its infancy, was built around the client. “I wanted it to be very focused on customer choice,” Dr. Meisler said of the clinic’s design. An innovative client flow involved pet owners picking what they wanted first by looking at an overhead pricing board, paying for it ahead of time at the counter, and then the veterinary team delivering it.


Our goal is to make excellent wellness, preventive, and minor ailment care more accessible to the community through new and exciting ways. Whether it be through services provided in one of our clinics or volunteering in our community, we always serve those around us with genuine care.
