Introducing Our Jackson Veterinarian

When you bring your pets to our Jackson veterinarian, Dr. Ben Lifsey, Jr., you're gaining the benefits of a long and distinguished family history of veterinary care. His father, Dr. Ben Lifsey, Sr., spent four decades serving the veterinary needs of area pets through his own veterinary practice, Lifsey Animal Clinic.
