About Dr. Leah Nagel

When we invite pets into our lives and our homes, we form unique and treasured connections. Helping people to preserve those bonds is what motivates and inspires me to practice veterinary medicine. 

I graduated from Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. My special interests in practice have been canine athletes, elderly pets, behavior issues, and all things quality of life. My interest in behavior led me to become Fear Free certified in 2018. For more about my practice philosophy, check out the “What’s Fear Free?” page.

In 2022, I decided to leave general practice and focus on what brings me the most joy: improving animals’ quality of life through comprehensive pain management, rehabilitation, and behavior services.

I opened Serenity Veterinary Services to bring high quality integrative treatment, detailed home care plans, and close follow-up right to people’s homes. Serenity is for anyone who feels their pet’s quality of life could be improved through an integrative approach that includes a comprehensive evaluation of lifestyle, nutrition, health and disease factors, and current treatments and that brings to the table both conventional options and integrative techniques.

I have enjoyed living in Knoxville for the last 6 years with my husband, Chance, 2 cats, and 1 Australian Shepherd. In our spare time, we enjoy everything the Smokeys have to offer, hiking and backpacking, fishing, and boating.
