Pleasant View Animal Hospital was founded in 1987 by Dr. David Gleaves. Just a couple years later, in 1989, Dr. Daniel Gleaves moved back to Pleasant View to partner with his brother Dr. David. As the hospital continued to grow, PVAH became one of the first animal hospitals in the area to become computerized in 1991. Shortly after becoming computerized, the hospital got its first blood analyzer, so bloodwork could be done in-house and patients could be diagnosed on the same day.
Through the 90’s, PVAH grew to a point that another veterinarian was needed. In November of 2000, Dr. Jacqueline Lamb was hired as an associate veterinarian. With three veterinarians at the hospital, it was time for an expansion, and in 2001 the new outpatient facility was opened. The new outpatient facility allowed for another period of growth for PVAH, and in 2008, Dr. Jennifer Knight joined the team. The hospital has grown extensively since 1987, but has always maintained sufficient staffing to continue operating on a convenient walk-in basis.

Dr. David Gleaves graduated from Auburn University, interned in Nashville, and practiced in Clarksville, before establishing Pleasant View Animal Hospital in 1987. He and his wife, Leigh, have several kinds of critters they care for at home including, dogs, cats, frogs, parrots, chickens, ducks, goats, and sheep. His hobbies include horticulture and raising Katahdin hair sheep.
Dr. Daniel Gleaves
Dr. Dan was born in Nashville and raised in Pleasant View. After attending MTSU for undergraduate school, he moved south, to Auburn, Alabama to attend veterinary school at Auburn University. Dr. Dan graduated from Auburn’s Veterinary College in 1988, married his college sweetheart, Susan, and moved to Atlanta to start his career in small animal medicine and surgery. It didn’t take long for Dr. Dan to decide that Pleasant View was the place he wanted to call home.
Dr. Dan moved back to Pleasant View in 1989 to begin working at Pleasant View Animal Hospital. He has loved working in Pleasant View, and has enjoyed raising his 7 children (Ashley, Evan, Brian, Heather, Jason, Landon, and Davin) and all their pets in the town where he grew up.
