I'm a first time fur baby mama to a Shichon. The Animal Medical Center helped me make the huge transition of being responsible for and taking care of my puppy. My pup was a surprise Christmas morning gift that my husband got from love at first sight. So, the center has been a part of my fur baby's life before I even knew he was mine. So, I can't imagine anyone else taking care of him. Lastly, if it wasn't for the plans the center offers it would not be easy financially to take proper care of my baby. I can't say enough about The Animal Medical Center.

Casey(yorkie) was paralyzed on left side, Dr. Mayfield did the surgery, but the others doctors took care of him. He is getting use of his legs slowly, but improveing Jennifer is doing physical on him twice a wk.The rest of the staff has treated Casey with love and care as if he was one of thiers. I would tell anyone to used this center.My nephew has a Rottweiler in Gulfport,MS that has a heart condition and they were able to see how bad it was with ultralsound and he is doing fine.

My pups were well taken care of by Dr. William Morris!! The staff was so friendly and courteous of my time, Dr. Morris thoroughly explained the care that was given as well as plans going forward & a free Pet Taxi was offered for our future visits!

Dr. Patrolia took very good care of my kitty when I brought him in as an emergency walk-in. Amazing staff, very compassionate and loving! Will definitely be bringing my kitty back to Animal Medical Center as his regular vet.

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
