Powell Jon C Mr/Ofc DR Vet
I don't know why this says Jon C. There is a Dr. Marie Powell at Veterans Blvd. clinic, and she is wonderful. My toy poodle was viciously attacked by a pack of dogs. He was in a critical stage and not eating. Dr. Powell took him home and fed him chicken. He survived, having had almost 40 dog bites. She has also always showed so much care and compassion to all my animals. She will answer your questions and go the extra mile to make sure you understand. I went to other vets and they didn't seem to care anywhere near like she did. I love Dr. Powell, and you will too.

I absolutely LOVE Tupelo Small Animal . All the staff are very compassionate and caring for our babies. Ms Penny always grooms Gucci and does an excellent job. The Physicians have always taken great care of our babies and go above and beyond to call and check up on aftercare. Highly Recommend Tupelo Small Animal for ALL your pet needs.

We were pleased with Dr. Black's surgery on our beagle. She is doing well, even though she does not like visiting the clinic. She ate fine once she arrived home, even though she refused to eat for the tech!
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
