Clinic History

Highway 58 Animal Hospital was established in 1977 by Dr. Lebron Brock. In 2000, Dr. Brock hired Dr. Shane Whitaker who became a partner in the hospital in 2005. The practice grew through the loyalty of pet owners in Chattanooga and the surrounding communities of Hixson, Harrison, and Ooltewah. In October of 2014, Dr. Brock and Dr. Whitaker opened a new state-of-the-art facility.

Staying at the forefront of cutting-edge veterinary techniques, the doctors at Highway 58 Animal Hospital added laparoscopic procedures to our services in 2016, and Computerized Tomography (CT) capabilities in 2017. A key component to excellence in veterinary care is keeping up with the continuous advancement of medical techniques and technology. Our doctors are committed to participating in continuing education so that they provide pets with the latest improvements available.
