“WOW!!!!!! My family was traveling to Hattiesburg for spring break, and we did not want to leave Maximus in the hotel room all day. Your center hit the highest mark for customer service. 

Animal Medical Center (AMC) staff and facility are far above the standard. The second day Maximus ran to AMC's front door. He had a great time and we have found a home away from home for Maximus."

“About five years ago I had a dachshund, Woofer, who that was on death's door. I found Animal Medical Center on the Internet. The doctors there gave me another year and a half with Woofer. This is the only clinic my new dachshunds Susie and Trudy go to.

We live about 70 miles from Animal Medical Center, so we pass a lot of other animal clinics on our way there. My only regret is that I didn't know about the Animal Medical Center when Woofer was a puppy.” 

Morris Johnson
“When my dog Eli and I moved here to Hattiesburg in June, I was so nervous about finding a new vet because he HATED our old one. 

After a few visits and boarding, he loves going to the vet! He gets so excited when we pull up and he loves the staff. I am very pleased with their services and enthusiasm. 

In my opinion, their prices are perfect for the quality of service they provide.” 

Laura McKowen
“I boarded my four-month-old puppy here for two weeks and when I picked him up, he still remembered his training and was still (if not better) with potty training.

Both my dogs came back better behaved than ever and they actually seemed to enjoy being kenneled. They got a lot of love and attention there.”
