longer appointments

More appointment time and less time waiting. Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with our clients and patients that is based on understanding, compassion, trust, and integrity. 

Our Mission & Vision

A growing number of pet owners are turning to mobile veterinarians to care for their furry family members.

Mobile vet clinics can be an ideal solution for families with pets who are:

– Shy, scared, or skittish
– Elderly
– Large dogs with mobility problems
– Aggressive

While most of our clients utilize our mobile services, both our team and our clients have found that our new clinic in Green Creek has added an additional level of care and convenience.

The stationary clinic provides a convenient location to bring in sick or injured pets that need to be seen on an urgent basis. For example, many of our clients utilize our mobile services for their routine wellness exams on multiple pets. If one pet gets sick, they can bring him or her into the clinic without having to wait for a mobile appointment.

Some of our clients will have us pick up their pets in our mobile unit and bring them to the clinic for further care and/or surgery. We also provide pick-up and drop-off services for scheduled surgical appointments.

The clinic provides a convenient location for pickup of medications and prescription foods. We have staff available in the clinic to answer your calls, answer questions, and provide medication pickup, even when our veterinarian is out for mobile appointments.

Kelly Sulik, DVM

Dr. Kelly Sulik is a magna cum laude graduate of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. She is a native of North Carolina, where she grew up in Chapel Hill.

As a kid, Dr. Sulik spent most of her time outside of school on the back of a horse.  She spent many of her summers in Minnesota on her grandparents’ horse farm, where her grandfather bred and raised golden American Saddlebreds, and where her aunt, Dr. Shirley Kittleson, has a mixed animal veterinary practice. 

It may be in her blood or it may be from early experience following her aunt around the vet clinic, but either way, Dr. Sulik knew it was her calling to become a vet.

While Dr. Sulik enjoys nearly all aspects of veterinary practice, her special interests include emergency medicine and ultrasonography. She has attended the renowned Sound Academy for Veterinary Imaging, where she completed several courses in abdominal ultrasonography and echocardiography.

When she is not working, Dr. Sulik can usually be found in her barn or riding one of her four horses. She is currently retraining an OTTB (Off-Track Thoroughbred) for the 2020 Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover, where they plan to compete in dressage.  She also enjoys spending time with her dogs of various breeds, most of whom she has rescued and rehabilitated.

Jacie Blackard

As a current employee of AniMobile, Jacie Blackard finds pride in taking care of the family members who take care of us. After growing up in Rutherford County surrounded by pets of all sizes, Jacie, who is currently a high school student, has decided to enter into a career based on the love she has for all animals, and has chosen to study Veterinary Medicine. While earning her high school diploma, Jacie has been granted the opportunity to work under Dr. Kelly Sulik in order to obtain a glimpse of what the life of a vet really is. In the office, Jacie makes it her mission to make sure everything is clean and sanitized for all of the incoming clients. Jacie also assists in answering calls, making appointments, and checking patients in and out. In addition, outside of the clinic Jacie enjoys spending time with her family and pets while also furthering her education.

Scott Houser

Scott moved to Tryon from Atlanta in 2015 and has been with Animobile since its inception. He earned his B.S. in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from Kennesaw State University in 2004, and his business knowledge has been a valuable asset to the Animobile team. In addition to his business experience, Scott is also a skilled veterinary assistant. He genuinely cares for each and every one of our patients, and he always does his best to make them feel comfortable and happy. He also takes care of the Animobile team by making us laugh when things get tough, picking up food when we are hungry, fixing stuff when it breaks, staying up late for emergency surgeries, and pretty much taking care of whatever needs to be done.

Zoey, Office Manager

Zoey has been with Animobile since 2017, when she was just a pup. Though she has no formal degree, growing up in the vet clinic has made Zoey wise beyond her mere 3 years. Her experience with Animobile, along with her innate interpersonal and organizational skills, allow her to run the office seamlessly and cheerfully. Zoey has big responsibilities in her home life as well, as she was recently promoted to Big Sister. In her free time, Zoey enjoys riding horses with her mom, Mariah, and annoying her dad with squeaky toys.

Tammy aka “Hamster,” CEO

Hamster has been with Animobile since 2016. When she arrived as a stray from Foothills Humane Society, she was in pretty rough shape. Her back legs were paralyzed, she had head trauma, and she was covered in fleas. She was hospitalized with us for over a week, and was so kind and appreciative of our help that Dr. Sulik spent several nights sleeping on the vet truck floor to keep her company while she was being treated. Hamster has come a long way since her humble beginnings. She is now Dr. Sulik’s boss and is in charge of everyone at Animobile. She is a kind but strict authority figure who runs a tight ship. In her free time, she enjoys unwinding from work by napping on fluffy pillows and binge-watching Netflix.
