Your Pet Vet: Dr. Cheryl L. Sammons, DVM

Dr. Sammons graduated from The College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1995. She worked in Memphis, Tn at a AAHA-certified, 4 doctor practice for 4 years, where she grew her passion for dermatology and internal/geriatric medicine.

Upon finding a location and being eager to commit more time to veterinary medicine, she, Brian, Dalton, and Grace opened the doors at South Franklin Animal Hospital in 2008. The hospital was opened with love and support of GOD, so many friends, loyal clients, and staff. South Franklin Animal Hospital was opened with guidance and direction from the Lord to care to the best of my ability for his creatures.

Dr. Cheryl Sammons has been married to Brian Schwarz since 1995. Blessed with two wonderful and challenging children Dalton {1998} and Grace {2002}. She is passionate that education of animal care taking and respect for animals, starts with early generations and good parent leaders. Dr. Sammons loves to have kids come to the practice to not only learn what a veterinarian does on a daily basis, but to allow kids to meet all the small creatures at the practice. Currently at SFAH there are chinchillas, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, goffin cockatoo, eclectus parrot, and a ferret.
