Randy Hammon, DVM, CVJ Dr. Randy Hammon is a 1982 graduate of the University of the Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.  He has wanted to be a veterinarian since he was 5 years old and has never had second thoughts. Dr. Randy has been practicing veterinary medicine with his brother Dr. Jim Hammon at Northgate Animal Hospital since graduating and building the facility in 1982.  They both are routinely on television and radio, along with newspaper interviews promoting pet care.  Dr. Randy was a past president of the Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association, served as a board member of the Regional Institute of Veterinary Medicine (RIVER), along with serving on local, state, and national boards, counsels, and non-profits including the local Humane Educational Society.  He also works with, supports, and has served on boards for the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (UTCVM) and The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture (UTIA). Dr. Randy routinely participates in International Third World Christian Medical Missions as part of medical teams that have met the needs of both people and animals. He enjoys outdoor sports on both land and water.  He shares a small farm with his two cats “Cleopatra and Tigris” along with his Australian Cattle Dog “Sheyla” (seen above).

Dr. Ward currently serves on the Chattanooga State Veterinary Technician Advisory Board.  In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, camping, and reading. Dr. Ward's special interests in veterinary medicine include internal medicine, laser surgery, and ultrasound.  Though she must say, it sure is fun to play with all the cute puppies and kittens when they are in for well checks and vaccinations.
