In Loving Memory
Thomas D. Edmonds, DVM – Founder
April 15, 1951 - December 6, 2019
Dr. Edmonds was known to his patients and clients as simply “Dr. Tom”. He founded Hickman Veterinary Hospital in September of 1977. During his 40+ years as owner and head Veterinarian, he serviced his community by treating both large and small animals. He enjoyed the variety of animals and situations that arose in a rural practice, as well as performing surgeries of all types and taking on the challenge of diagnosing unusual illnesses and injuries.
Dr. Tom was a Mason, held memberships with the American Veterinary Medical Association, board of the Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association, Hickman County Cattleman’s Association, Hickman County Chamber of Commerce, and board of St. Thomas Hickman Hospital. In 2017 he was voted Citizen of the Year.
He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1976 and remained a lifelong Georgia Bulldog fan. He was an avid cyclist, farmer, fisherman, and family man.
To know him was to love him. We remember Dr. Tom every single day. His lessons, his advice, his sense of humor and laugh. We work hard to continue his legacy of great care and treatment of our patients, which is the basis that he founded this clinic on in the beginning.
