Dr. Bill B. Moore

 Dr Bill B. Moore Bill, along with his sister and a handful of first cousins, was raised on the family dairy farm in the rolling hills of eastern Tennessee. During high school he was very active in both the local 4-H club and FutureFarmers of America, competing at all levels including the national dairy judging and parliamentary procedure contests. Dr. Moore studied Animal Science at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville before graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. He then joined a veterinary practice in Athens, Tennessee where he worked on a wide variety of species. In addition to dogs, cats & pocket pets, Bill routinely visited farms over six counties to provide veterinary care to horses and cows. The practice also provided the opportunity to help injured wildlife and exotic pets. 

For the past 20 years, Dr. Moore has focused exclusively on dogs, cats, & a few pocket pets while working at practices in East Tennessee and South Florida. In addition to wellness care for the furry members of the family, he has extensive knowledge of internal medicine, critical care, dermatology a animal behavior. He has spent many years improving his ultrasonography skills through short courses and working alongside boarded specialists.

Dr. Moore loves learning new information to help his patients and routinely studies pain management, dentistry, ophthalmology, emergency medicine, and nutrition. Because our older patients often have multiple medical concerns, Bill enjoys the opportunity to use his knowledge and compassion to improve the quality of life for geriatric pets by considering their environment at home, nutrition, activity levels, and medical needs. 

When he is not reading or watching college football, Dr.Moore can often be found enjoying the great outdoors, whether kayaking along a lazy river, biking a state park trail, or riding a Harley on a two-lane highway. Always ready to enjoy a fine meal, in recent years he has been sampling the local cuisine while he was visiting Havana, Banff, and Nairobi.

    Dr. Joi Sutton is an incredible vet! She was willing to change her weekend around and help me and my 20 year old cat. I highly recommend meeting her in person. She is smart and caring!

    Dr. Joi is fantastic we have been with her for about six years now and she's the best vet I have ever had, I've had dogs all my life and so I've seen my share of vets and she's the tops, She even made a house call in an emergency and nobody does that anymore, I would highly recommend her to anybody that has a cat or a dog or any other small animal that she might take care of.

    I love Tequesta Veterinary Clinic! Joi and the entire staff are so friendly and helpful. I'm forever grateful that I found them as a second opinion several years ago when another vet was ready to give up and put my dog to sleep at only 2 years old! Joi took the common sense approach, started from the beginning, and went over the basics that the other vet missed. She literally saved our dog's life and saved us thousands of dollars in unnecessary testing too. It's hard to find a good vet, and I recommend Tequesta Veterinary Clinic to everyone who asks!

    Our cat became ill and we were in a panic about what was happening. The staff at Tequesta Veterinary Clinic was extremely helpful, kind, gentle, and knowledgeable. Dr. Joi is professional, a nonalarmist, and very experienced. Both our cat and our family were well respected and tended to, which isn’t an easy task. We’ve known this clinic for years and years as Dr. Joi also helped my parents and their dog over the years. I highly recommended her and her work.

    My old man, a 12-year-old beagle named "Juice", was treated like a king at this vet. I just moved from Pittsburgh and Juice really needed some dental work. I was putting it off until June when I returned to Pittsburgh but then I found this vet a half-mile down the road. Dr. Joi and her whole staff are amazing. They made me feel very comfortable taking my dog here for procedures and routine check-ups. After Juice's procedure, Dr. Joi gave me her personal number and called me to check on him. She goes the extra mile for her patients.
