What to Expect

When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Canton Road Vet in Jackson, MS have assembled a team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a vet facility that is clean, comfortable, and efficient.

When you bring your pet in, we provide a physical exam which includes checking eyes, ears, mouth, heart, lungs, abdomen, nose, throat, and skin for any masses. We can perform allergy tests and recommend time frames for yearly blood work as your pet gets older. We can also assist with your pet's dietary needs to help them lose or gain weight. 

Most lab work is on-site and if your pet is tested, we can have their results within 20 minutes. Any work sent out for tests may take up to 48 hours.

Our receptionist and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel like you have an emergency, please call us first so we can be prepared and advise you accordingly

Bring any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health through his or her life, including behavior shifts.

In some circumstances, Dr. Ford may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
