About Us

photo2Nashville veterinary care!

Welcome to Parker’s Paws Animal Hospital, your local veterinarians in Nashville, Tennessee. We’re pleased to provide a wide variety of veterinary services for animals in Nashville¬†and surrounding areas.


Minimum is best and we vaccinate only for diseases that your animal is at risk for and use products that we believe are the most safe and efficacious. We are happy to discuss why and what we are vaccinating for.


We offer online price-competitive prescriptions through our VIPPS-accredited website, Vetsource. If you wish to purchase medications from an alternative source, we can provide a written prescription during a scheduled office visit. We do not accept faxed or telephone prescription requests. An annual examination and appropriate testing is required by law to provide any medication. If you have questions about this policy, we will be happy to provide you more information. We require 48 hours notice for all refill requests (excludes heartworm prevention and flea/tick treatment)

Overnight care

We do not have staff on the premises 24 hours a day and local codes do not allow animals to be boarded overnight. We recommend 24-hour facilities such as Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners for medical overnight care.


Humane euthanasia is the hardest procedure and clearly difficult for all involved. Dr. Klapheke and our associate veterinarians do not euthanize on demand, but expects a relationship with all involved.


Payment is expected at time of service. We do not bill. We can discuss other options in advance and are happy to give estimates.

Thank you and we look forward to a long and healthy relationship with you and your pet!
