This is East Tennessee Veterinary Ultrasound!


Dr. Laura Bacon  

Dr. Bacon is a board-certified specialist in Canine and Feline Practice through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. Dr. Laura Devlin Bacon has been performing ultrasounds since 2001. She began to use ultrasound on a daily basis in 2003 when she opened Boyds Creek Animal Hospital in Seymour, TN. Since that time she has used ultrasound extensively both in general practice and while working with the Emergency and Critical Care Team at the Animal Emergency and Specialty Center. Her time in general practice allowed her to develop years of experience with normal and abnormal anatomy, normal sonographic aging changes, and different pathologies of the thorax, abdomen, and cervical regions. Time at the specialty center allowed her to practice advanced medicine, perform routine T- and A-FAST scans and observe numerous ultrasounds on patients from the oncology and critical care services. 

Dr. Bacon has completed over 180 hours of specific ultrasound instruction throughout her career. 120 of those hours have been obtained since December 2016. She has completed a year-long advanced ultrasonography and echocardiography training series at the Academy of Veterinary Imaging in Arlington, Texas. She continues her training with ongoing sonography training, attending cardiology, oncology, and internal medicine lectures, and shadowing specialists in cardiology and radiology.

Dr. Bacon is also an adjunct professor on staff at the Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine where she teaches ultrasound to 2nd-year veterinary students. Dr. Bacon is a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners and became a board-certified specialist in Canine and Feline Practice in 2009. She completed a rigorous re-certification process in 2018. She is a contributing author for the textbook “Treatment and Care of the Geriatric Veterinary Patient”, Wiley Blackwell Publishing, 2017.

Dr. Bacon also has a special love of very sick and geriatric patients and a deep interest in pet hospice and palliative care. She is a proud member of The International Veterinary Ultrasound Society, The Veterinary Information Network, The Knoxville Veterinary Medical Association, The American Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.

Meet Your Techs!

Tiffany and Alanna are dedicated to caring for each pet that walks through our door! They will greet you when you come in, answer any questions you may have, and send you off with the warmest goodbye.

Alanna

Alanna

Alanna is a proud momma to her Aussie and Aussie mix, Kiara and Koda (if you couldn’t tell, she loves the herding breeds). In her free time, she likes to lounge at the lake, take walks in the park, and spend the day at her family’s farm. Alanna has loved animals her entire life, so she lunged at the opportunity to make a difference when Dr. Bacon decided to reopen in October of 2021!

Tiffany

Tiffany

My name is Tiffany! I have one Shih Tzu, Chewy, and one Australian shepherd, Kumi. Let me tell you they definitely keep me sane throughout my day, haha. If my career position doesn’t say it all, I love helping pet owners like myself provide the care and guidance they need. I love expanding my knowledge with new facts and tricks. On the side of working in the ultrasound field, I work at a local independent pharmacy as a pharmacy technician. Besides that, I enjoy spending time with my family and puppers outdoors.
