Review for Tennessee Tails:  Pets and their People:

Tennessee Tails is a glimpse into the life of a charismatic and skilled veterinarian. Personal and medical details paint a charming picture of the author's love for her patients, respect for their owners, and dedication to her profession. 

Dr. Primm has dreamed of being a veterinarian since the age of five. She grew up in Chattanooga, graduating from Girls Preparatory School and accepting an academic scholarship from Mississippi State University where she completed a degree in Biological Sciences as well as her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Applebrook Animal Hospital is a dream come true for her and she will laugh and say that it is built of her “blood, sweat and tears.” As a pet owner of two cats and Dora, a rescued Great Dane, Dr. Primm knows the challenges of keeping fur-friends happy and healthy. Helping pets and people is her passion and her mission, loving the job is an extra bonus.  www.applebrookanimal.com
