Welcome to Canton Road Veterinary Hospital


Give your cat or dog the best possible care - bring them to Canton Road Veterinary Hospital. We offer preventative medicine, in-house bloodwork, small animal surgery, therapy laser treatments, pet bathing and boarding, and general medicine. Contact us to schedule an appointment:







As our pets age, we recommend yearly wellness exams, which includes blood work, urinalysis and x-rays. All of these can be performed in the hospital.


We do offer and recommend microchipping for your pet. It could save your pet's life!


We perform all basic surgeries such as spays and neuters, mass removals, laceration treatments, and many more.


We do puppy and kitten shots and also provide 3 year vaccines on adult pets.

Our therapy laser can be beneficial to pets with arthritis, wounds, sprains/strains, post-surgical healing, and a multitude of other problems. 
We have indoor kennels, as well as indoor/outdoor runs and a yard where they can run and play.
We do baths, brush outs, and 
sanitary grooms. Baths include nail 
trim, anal gland expression, and ear cleaning.
We do dental cleaning and tooth 
extractions. We will recommend products to help keep your pet's teeth clean.


We have one veterinarian and a technician on duty 5 days a week who are able to handle most emergencies. Emergencies can be things such as accidental poisoning, car accidents, or chocolate ingestion. In some life-threatening emergencies, you may be referred to the Animal Emergency and Referral Center (601-939-8999)  or to Urgivet (601-790-1918) to ensure as many people as possible are working to save your pet's life. 


We provide a wide variety of dietary foods, treats, shampoos, and more available for purchase from our lobby as a convenience to you and your pet.
