The doctors of North Jackson Animal Clinic can care for many types of pets:
- Pocket Pets

Our medical health team tries very hard to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. We no longer offer after hour emergency services. Other options are listed on our home page.
North Jackson Animal Clinic is equipped to provide safe and comfortable space for boarding your pets of all sizes, large and small. We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty who are trained and equipped to provide your pet with the excellent care it deserves. Boarding pets are taken outside in enclosed runs twice daily, 7 days a week, including holidays, as well as anytime during regular business hours. On pleasant days, when the temperature is comfortable, pets may stay outside in a shady enclosed run most of the day. We strive to provide your pets with a clean, safe and comfortable environment during their stay with us. If you have any questions about boarding your pet or to schedule a tour of our boarding facilities, please do not hesitate to contact us. You may also check out our kennel areas on this website under the "NEW PATIENT CENTER" tab.
Animals have teeth, too. Bacteria that surrounds their teeth tends to affect the overall health of your pet in many ways. We are capable of performing routine dental cleanings and extraction of infected or damaged teeth. Before we work on the teeth of your pet, we recommend you begin a round of antibiotics. These may be picked up 3 to 5 days before your appointment. You will need to continue the full course of antibiotics after the procedure.
Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has during regular office hours. An emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and a certified technician, along with trained vet assistants, working together to treat your pet. Emergencies can be things such as poisoning, animals hit by car, and even heat stroke. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately during regular business hours.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments.
