Dr. Aaron Hollis, DVM, Veterinarian-- Chief Medical Officer 

DR.jpgDr. Hollis grew up in western Kentucky on a beef cattle farm. He has always been around veterinary medicine since he was a young boy working on the family farm.  He has worked as a veterinary technician and veterinarian for twenty years. Dr. Hollis received a Bachelor's of Science from Western Kentucky University in Biochemistry, with an interest in recombinant gene technology and animal science. He went on to graduate from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, where he served as a class officer and honor court delegate. While he was a student, he completed an externship in equine surgery in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Dr. Hollis has been in Mt. Juliet for almost 20 years.  He chose to move back to practice following his veterinary school graduation in 2000. He worked for Dr. Mike Harris @ Animal Care Center for 9 years. Following his departure there, he chose to provide relief work for the Animal Medical Center Emergency Hospital in Murfreesboro, as well as, other veterinary practices in Middle Tennessee.  During this time, he served as project manager for the building of the Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort.

 Dr. Hollis is a USDA certified veterinarian and has been boarded in Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky. He is a member of the A.V.M.A., T.V.M.A. and V.E.C.C.S. He has continuing education or additional training in Emergency Critical Care,  American Association of Feline Practitioners, Feline Internal Medicine,  University of Tennessee Soft tissue surgery techniques,  Otic (ear) wet lab endoscopy, advanced wound care management techniques,  therapeutic laser rehabilitation, dental care, and bladeless-radiowave surgery techiniques.


Dr. Hollis calls Wilson County home with his wife, Vickie and daughter Lauren. They are members of The Bridge Fellowship. As you can imagine, the Hollis family owns several pets:  a sweet Border Terrier rescue dog named Sophie, an orange tabby rescue cat named Oscar, a horse named Barbie, a horse named Rocky,  a few chickens and goldfish. Dr. Hollis enjoys spending time outdoors, playing softball/basketball, going to Auburn football games and watching his daughter ride horses.  


Dr. Hollis is known for his thoroughness in care, time spent educating pet owners,  excellent diagnostic skills and great bedside manner. Although his patients cannot speak, they love coming to see him. 

Dr. Hollis wanted to build a green friendly in Mt. Juliet that was state of the art. He chose the local architect firm of Kaatz, Binkley, Jones, Morris to assist him in following AAHA's (American Animal Hospital Association) strict construction guidelines for stand-alone animal hospitals. He also consulted Wayne Usiak and Dan Chapel, who are two of the world's most well respected veterinary architects. We hope you will agree this homework paid off in bringing Mt. Juliet one of the most beautiful veterinary hospitals and a place pet owners will be proud to call home for years to come.
