I have known Kathy Kunkel for a number of years, and her talent and expertise proved indispensable when I was in the wildlife park business. Now my wife, Ginger, and I willingly make the drive to Franklin for our own animals who have also benefited mightily from her veterinary gifts. We love her and all the staff at Little House Animal Hospital.
Kathy Kunkel has been our vet since the beginning of her work in Williamson County. She has taken care of cats Barney and Vandy Lou as well as our 85-pound lab Buddy. There is no one more professional and knowledgeable and yet as caring for pets than Dr. Kunkel. Buddy loves Dr. Kathy and will run to find her when he hears her voice. When she comes into the room, she sits on the rug with him and he literally tries to “talk” to her. I know that he will receive the best care when I take him there. With Dr. Kunkel veterinary medicine is more than a job. It is clearly evident that she loves what she does and gives all that she has. Dr. Kathy Kunkel is a modern James Harriot.
The day I met Kathy Kunkel was when she gently let me know about my beloved cat’s situation. The compassion and caring in her eyes – for my cat and for me – was something my husband Drew and I would come to know very well in the years since. Dr. Kunkel has an intuitive sixth sense that guides exceptional skill. Her loving devotion to animals rises from deep within and is manifested in every possible way. How many vets put tiny socks on little paws during surgery so they won’t get cold? Or bring Christmas stockings from Santa for every furry patient hospitalized over the holidays? The specialness of Little House is also due to its wonderful, hard-working, big-hearted staff who carefully attend to the health, comfort, and safety of every animal in their care.
We just love Dr. Kunkel and all the staff at Little House Animal Hospital. They have taken care of our animals for many years and they are, by far, the best around. Every time we call or bring one of our animals in, they always take care of us as if we’re the only ones there. Everyone who works at Little House has a strong love for animals and is very knowledgeable about them. The level of care given to our animals has been the absolute best! Over the years, we have been through a lot together… adopting more animals, caring for sick animals and the loss of one of our precious babies. We never would have been able to do it without Dr. Kunkel and her staff. Thank you all for being such an important part of our family!
On November 9, 2012 our lives were drastically changed when we rescued a dog from a kill shelter in Cleveland, TN. We already have another rescue from the who is about 6 years old now and Dr. Kunkel wanted to make sure we had this dog examined before we brought him home to Emma. Well, that started a journey of a very sick little dog. He tested positive for heartworm that day amongst other diseases. It broke my heart but for 4 months we have been taking care of this little dog with the help of Dr Frevert. When we first got Brody, he was so anxious and always tried to nip at the staff at Little House. Dr. Frevert is always able to talk to Brody man and calm him down. Dr. Frevert is caring and compassionate and has a wonderful sense of humor. She has called me almost every single day in the last few months to check on our little man. She truly cares about this little dog and making sure he gets better which at times seemed like it would never happen. She takes the time to answer every question and some questions I don’t even think to ask. Every single person at Little House knows Brody and asks about him. He walks in there like a little rock star, which of course he is. Thank you Dr. Frevert for saving little Brody man more than once. I think he is up to 12 lives now because of you.
