About Us Image

Star Gregory, Dalton, Georgia Veterinarian

Dr. Gregory is a native of New Jersey.  After obtaining a degree in Biology from Spelman College in Atlanta, she attended Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated with honors.

The beginning of her veterinary career took her to Illinois where she worked in a practice for two years before returning to Georgia to start a house-call practice, Zutilla Veterinary Housecalls.  The practice was operational for 3 years.  Afterwards, Dr. Gregory was the veterinarian at Fulton County Animal Services in Atlanta, GA.  From there, she moved to Dalton and worked at National Spay Alliance Foundation for 2 years.

Her tenure at Fulton County and National Spay Alliance has honed her skills in high-volume spay/neuter and pediatric spay/neuter, which Dr. Gregory is an advocate of.

She is now the proud owner of Zutilla Pet Clinic and is looking forward to serving her patients in the best way possible!

Dr. Gregory currently resides in Dalton with her son Eli and her dog Lucky.

What Does Zutilla Mean?

Zutilla is a combination of the names “Zulu” and “Atilla.”  Zulu was Dr. Gregory’s dog when she was growing up in New Jersey. He was a black Labrador Retriever.  Zulu passed away in 2007.  Atilla was Dr. Gregory’s beloved German Shepherd mix until she passed away in August 2019 at the age of 15.  Dr. Gregory decided to honor two dogs that meant so much to her by naming her business after them!

The Zutilla Pet Clinic Team



Vet Assistant

My name is Miguel. I have always been interested in all animals since I was a child. I have been a veterinary assistant since 2015. I have two dogs; Millie and Gordo. I also have two snakes; Snakey and Boujee. My hobbies are; sports, outdoor activities and spending quality time with friends and family.



Vet Assistant

Hello! My name is Molly Howell. I’ve had pets since I was a child and have always cared for animals. I enjoy spending time with my family and doing outside activities with my kids.




Hello! My name is Karen. Those who know me know how much of a big heart I have for any animal I cross paths with! I have a beautiful cat named Winter and we love to cuddle and watch sunrises and sunsets together. I enjoy nature, exploring, reading, exercising, and spending time with my friends and family.



Vet Assistant

Hello, I’m Sally.  I discovered my love for working with animals by spending time in an animal shelter.  I decided I wanted to do more to help animals, so I switched up my career from teaching humans to veterinary assisting.   I now spend my days with cats and dogs!  At home, I'm equally surrounded by the love of my own fur babies: three cats and a dog.



Comfort Coordinator

I started off as a street cat and was being cared for by a nice man. But I started to develop some skin issues that caused me to itch terribly. My coat was patchy, and my skin was covered in scabs. The man that was caring for me was unable to alleviate my discomfort and felt my life was not one of quality. He brought me to Zutilla Pet Clinic to relieve my discomfort…permanently, if you get what I’m saying. Dr. Gregory thought she could help me and elected not to send me over the Rainbow Bridge. I’m now feeling better, looking better, and have been here ever since.
