The Knoxville Veterinary Clinic started as a partnership of three veterinarians in the 1960s. The clinic had a small office on the Knoxville town square. The practice was very livestock-oriented at that time, and the veterinarians drove cars loaded with medical equipment and supplies to area farms to care for local livestock.
In 1973, the practice grew to four veterinarians. By this time, the doctors went on calls in pickup trucks with special boxes on the back to hold hot water and vet supplies. A main office was built on the south edge of Knoxville on Hwy 24. Small animal exam and surgery rooms were built, and an extensive cattle-processing facility was built in and outside the office. A satellite office was opened in Pleasantville.
In 1991, Doctors Mark Poell and Robert Conway left the practice. Dr. Craig Burk, the junior partner, became the sole owner and operated the practice with two associate doctors. Dr. Burk sold the large animal portion of the practice in 1994 to an associate and turned the Knoxville Veterinary Clinic into a strictly small animal practice.
Doctor Burk strives every day to give his best to his clients and patients. Thank you for trusting him with your beloved pet.
