Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if my pet has an after-hours emergency?

    If your pet needs after-hours care before 10pm, please call (769) 274-2528. After 10pm, please call (601) 939-8999.

    • How often should my pet come in for an exam?

      At minimum your pet should be seen at least once a year by our staff. They will receive their vaccine boosters as well as be tested and examined for any illness or tumor growths while here. If you notice a change in behavior or eating habits and suspect that your pet may be sick, please bring them in for an exam at once.

    • How important is nutrition for my pet?

      Nutrition is very important for your pet just as it is important for humans. Pet food is balanced in nutrients and vitamins specifically for your pet’s digestive system. Human food requires some breakdown that dogs and cats do not possess the ability to perform, therefore intestinal and stomach issues may arise. Portion control is also very important due to the small caloric intake needed for our small fur-babies.

    • At what age do you suggest having my pet spayed or neutered?

      Forest Animal Hospital, along with most veterinary practices, recommends waiting until your pet is at least six (6) months of age before any sterilization procedure. It is important to remember that a spay surgery for a female pet is the equivalent of a hysterectomy in a human, therefore significant recovery time is needed for your pet.
