Animal Medical Center is here for the needs of your small and large animals. Our hospital strives to combine our knowledge of animal medicine with our experience and state-of-the-art quality care. Our doctors and staff pride themselves on taking the greatest possible care of your pet or farm animal. Animal Medical Center’s goal is to continually surpass your animal care expectations, while providing compassionate treatment for your pet.
The Animal Medical Center was founded in 1976 in our current location. Since that time, there have been many changes to our hospital as well as veterinary medicine. Our practice has progressed from primarily a large animal practice, to one with a greater focus on companion pets. Animal Medical Center has moved our x-ray processing from film and chemicals to digital radiography which allows our staff to use a minimum of radiation and greater resolution than available in the past. Our hospital has also kept pace in the computer age with a completely integrated computer system which allows your pet’s medical records to be accessed at any workstation in the hospital, enabling us to be even more efficient than before, as well as being able to consult with you on your pet’s health issues at any time. Even with the changes we have experienced at the Animal Medical Center, we pride ourselves on maintaining the same caring and compassion for you and your animals.
Doctors William Kimble and Greg Howell became partners at the Animal Medical Center in 1993. Dr. Johnna McRee joined the team in 2006. All three of our doctors are licensed to practice veterinary medicine in the state of Mississippi and accredited with the United States Department of Agriculture.
Our practice is considered a mixed animal practice, as we primarily work with companion animals, but also work with local farm and other large animals. Our experienced team consists of three full-time veterinarians, three certified veterinary technicians, four animal caretakers and three receptionists, all ready to assist you and your pet.
In addition to our hospital, many people board their pets while traveling. We are pleased to offer climate controlled boarding facilities, which keep pets cozy in the winter and cool during the hot Mississippi summers! Express checkout is available for your convenience on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. We also offer VIP (Very Important Pet) Suites which have television to entertain your pet while you are away. While in our care, your pet is looked after by one of our animal caretakers and supervised by our veterinarians. If your pet needs anything at all, a member of our team is a bark or meow away!
The clinic and staff also enjoy being a part of the Brookhaven community. Animal Medical Center is a member of the Brookhaven-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, actively participates in local 4H and FFA events, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America, and the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League.
