Types of Pets Seen

Because Southside Animal Hospital is a full service clinic our veterinarians offer the most exclusive care for your dogs and cats! 

We are able to provide the best service in Shreveport, Louisiana to our clients and future clients by having veterinarians that are fully experienced with all breeds as well as specialty breeds of dogs and cats.

Let us see what we can do for you and your special animal! 


    Emergency & Urgent Care

    We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

    We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

    Sign up using the form below or call 318-797-7902 to make an appointment.
