What We Do

If you live in Jackson or surrounding areas, you can make University Parkway Animal Hospital your one-stop location for all your pet care needs. Here your pet can receive the necessary care to live a long, healthy life. Our services include:

Preventative Care – Preventative care is the cornerstone of our veterinary care. Our preventative care services include wellness exams, diagnostics, vaccinations, parasite control, dental care, and more. Wellness exams help us catch medical problems in their early stages when they are easiest to manage and treat. Annual wellness exams also alert our veterinarian to potential health risks that can be prevented with proper care.

Diagnostics – Our in-house diagnostic services enable us to receive quick and accurate blood, urine, and fecal test results to diagnose health conditions. We also provide digital x-ray and ultrasound services for dental or surgical procedures.

Vaccinations – If your pet needs vaccinations, we offer both core and non-core vaccines at our facility. We will develop a vaccination schedule conducive to your pet’s healthcare needs to ensure he or she remains protected against disease.

Surgery – We perform routine and general surgeries including spay and neuter procedures, tumor or mass removal, fracture repair, tooth extraction, and more.

Boarding – Are you going out of town for a while and can’t take your pet? Consider our pet boarding services. Our kennels are safe, clean and comfortable, and within easy reach of medical care if necessary while you are away.
