Local author Dr. Kathryn Primm, author of "Tennessee Tails: Pets and their People," will be at the  Cleveland Bradley County Public Library, 795 Church St. NE, on Sunday at 2 p.m. discussing her book and signing copies. 

Review for Tennessee Tails:

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.
