      Thanks Dr. Thompson and staff for taking care of my fur baby while we are traveling away from home. We truly appreciated your kindness. 🐶

      One of the best animal clinics in Mississippi!
      They fixed my mothers Stamfordshire bull terrier’s shattered leg with rods and some screws and she’s still alive and well 7 years later

      We have never been a client, but found ourselves in an emergency last night and in an area with no large animal coverage. Dr. Hunt came quickly and took care of my daughters horse. He was very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable and took care of the situation. He had one of the best “bedside” manners of any large vet I have ever met. We may have never been a client before but we definitely will be now.

      My very first time coming to Willow Bend and I don’t regret it at all. My corgi had an accident played and busted his head. They got him in on short notice and got him all fixed up. They were super sweet and loved my baby like their own. I will not go anywhere else now.
