At Gregg Veterinary Hospital, we realize that your pet is a member of your family, and you want to provide the best possible health care for your companion throughout his or her lifetime.
Our experienced veterinarians and staff are here to provide complete health care services for your pet. That means that we will help your healthy pets stay well, and we will help diagnose and treat your sick pets so that they can return to a healthy condition as quickly as possible. We are dedicated to partnering with you in the health care of your pet from the first examinations and vaccinations of your young, healthy puppies and kittens, through early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages.
We recommend annual check-ups and consistent preventive care to help alleviate serious health problems later in your pet’s life. During our wellness visits, we conduct a thorough physical examination from nose to tail, checking vital signs, looking for abnormalities, and testing for heartworms and other parasites. Wellness blood profiles and urinalysis may be recommended for your pet at certain ages or if they fit certain risk categories.
After assessing your pet’s risk of exposure to diseases, we will develop a vaccine schedule based on your pet’s individual needs. Vaccinations are vital to your pet’s health, and can save your pet from unnecessary suffering, or even an early death. They can also save you from expensive veterinary bills.
We will explain potential health issues that your pet may face depending on the species, breed, the pet’s stage of life, current health condition, environmental conditions, habitat, and so forth. Based on these factors, we will develop preventive protocols for your pet regarding the best ways to control fleas and ticks in your house, your yard, and on your pet.
At Gregg Veterinary Hospital, our approach to veterinary medicine is to be proactive rather than reactive. We like to maintain healthy lifestyles and practices to minimize hiccups and surprises for our pet parents. This includes providing guidance for your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance.
Additionally, our veterinary professionals can spay or neuter your pet at the appropriate age, not just to prevent unwanted litters, but to lessen the development of cancer in both genders of dogs and cats and other exotics.
Whether you’re in need of a checkup, diagnostic services and treatment for a sick pet or preventative care to keep your pet healthy, our doctors and staff at Gregg Veterinary Hospital are committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of every pet owner. Appointments are needed for wellness visits so that we may schedule the proper amount of time needed to provide your pet with quality care.
The service area for our hospital is the Miss-Lou region which includes Vidalia, Ferriday, and Monterey, Louisiana, as well as Natchez and Woodville, Mississippi.
