  • "If I could give this place 10 stars, I would! I brought my 13 year old cat here for a UTI a few weeks ago, they checked her right away. I had to bring her in again Friday night because she wasn't eating and just seemed way off. She had to stay over the weekend and kept declining. Unfortunately, we had to put her down this morning. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Worthley was so kind and amazing and all the ladies that worked there. Everything and everyone was so reasonable and accommodating. She didn't make any decisions for us and answered all of our questions. I will never take my pets anywhere else. Thank you for everything!"
    Ciara H.
  • "We had to have out old Blue Healer down last Saturday. The staff at Jackson County Animal Hospital were amazing. It was a great comfort to work with a compassionate vet when your heart is broken. Thank you!"
    Michele T.
  • "I had an amazing experience here! The vet was knowledgeable kind and caring with my new puppy. All of the staff was friendly and the prices were very reasonable! I would recommend anyone to this animal clinic!"
    Samantha J.
  • "I can't say enough good things about this animal hospital. I didn't want to take my dog to my previous vet, because I felt like all they really cared about was the money. But this place was clearly about the care of my pet and getting him well. Everyone was so compassionate and did everything they could to help my little dog. Their rates were affordable and the care was the best. It almost felt like I was in the good ole days at this office. If you are wanting fancy computers and a fancy building, that is not here. But if you want someone who cares about your pet and getting and keeping them well, you will feel right a home!"
    Teresa E.
  • "My dog Bella, a big American bulldog had heartworms. My regular vet was going to charge me more than I could afford for the treatment. I called Jackson County Animal Hospital and was able to get the treatment done for way less with no issues or side effects of the treatment for the heartworm and now Bella is heartworm free and has been for several years (with regular heartworm preventative monthly). As someone else said the office is very old-school but the people there are great and I recommend them for the lowest priced heartworm treatment around (to get rid of them). I believe for preventative they are about average price but you may be able to get one pill (one monthly dose) at a time instead of having to get a whole package which is nice when you don't have $50 bucks to drop on a 6 pack."

  • "Wonderful and compassionate people who don't believe in overcharging for their services."
