The Journey Back Home:
Dr. Amy Constantine bought Dr. Mike Harry’s practice in 2018. She knew Dr. Harry for many years, going back to when she was a student trying to get into vet school. She shadowed him both at his Lincoln County practice and briefly during his time working in Ocala, FL. Dr. Harry was kind enough to write her a letter of recommendation that helped her gain admittance into the University of Tennessee. After veterinary school, Dr. Constantine started working at a Thoroughbred racetrack practice in Louisiana, but she always had in the desire to have her own practice back home. She had the opportunity to acquire Dr. Harry’s reputable practice and continuing to serve her clients in southern Tennessee.
“I’m so thankful to have gained the wonderful clients that he served for the past 30+ years. Dr. Harry continues to help me in an advisory capacity and always loves to hear about how his old patients are doing. ” -Dr. Constantine
