Why “Bluegrass”?

Our name, “Bluegrass Veterinary Clinic,” is a tribute to Sparta, known as The Bluegrass Capital of Tennessee and the home of the legendary Lester Flatt. Our love for bluegrass music and the rich stories behind it reflects our deep connection to this community. We strive to be the local veterinary connection you can rely on, no matter the circumstances. We are proud to be here and hope you will be proud to have us as part of your community.

At Bluegrass Veterinary Clinic, we believe in building lasting relationships with our clients and their pets. Whether you’re in Cookeville, McMinnville, Spencer, Crossville, or right here in Sparta, we are your local veterinary connection, dedicated to providing the highest standard of care.

Our Team

Bluegrass Veterinary Clinic offers individualized, contemporary medicine for all life stages of companion and farm animals. We pride ourselves on maintaining the human-animal bond while maximizing an animal’s quality of life at any age.   We offer surgery, dentistry, preventative care, in-house diagnostic equipment, digital radiography, and a fully stocked pharmacy for immediate dispensing.  


Complete blood counts, comprehensive biochemistry analysis, urinalysis, fecal evaluation, parasitic/cytologic microscopic evaluation, various tests for common infectious diseases like Parvo, Feline Leukemia, Tick diseases, heartworms, and more….All with results completed during your visit! State of the art digital radiography (X-rays/ ultrasound/echocardiogram) allows a clearer diagnosis and evaluation of the treatment plan. In the case of referrals or advanced cases, immediate send out for clarification has board-certified radiologists report available within days of submission. For more advanced testing, the turnaround time to our outside labs rarely exceeds 24-48 hours, speeding up diagnosis and ensuring your pet feels better faster.


Dental examinations and consultations, preventative dental care, sedated teeth floating (equine), and full general anesthetic scaling, polishing of healthy teeth and extractions of affected teeth including dental X-rays only if medically indicated (companion animals).


Our goal is to make one of the hardest times in pet ownership also one of the most peaceful and comforting. Our “comfort room” is your home away from home where you can say goodbye to your loved one in the comforts of a living room, instead of a sterile medical environment. Couches, windows, and it’s own private door to a peaceful backyard help pets relax knowing they aren’t “at the vet”, and quality time can be spent just enjoying each other’s company. You are welcome to take your pet home for burial or we also offer communal or private cremation services through Pet Angel.
