Pets and planet win at eco-friendly Belmont Animal Hospital

By Chris Echegaray • THE TENNESSEAN • April 6, 2009

At the new Belmont Animal Hospital, the building is constructed from recycled materials and the office is mainly paperless.

Its owner, Dr. Baker Eadie, said he wanted to meet two goals simultaneously: caring for pets and the environment.

Eadie and his longtime friend, Dr. Malcolm Sewell, purchased the building at 3206 Belmont Blvd. last year with the plan to minimize the environmental impact of a new veterinary practice. The two grew up in the Green Hills area, both attended the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine and for years dreamed of such an animal hospital.

“We wanted a community feel and wanted to add a positive influence,” Eadie said. “We love this neighborhood and wanted a place where people could walk over here. That minimizes the carbon footprint. We have more recycling bins than most places.”

What a wonderful idea!
