puppy1.png When you are looking for a veterinarian you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service for you and your pet. We at Simply Southern Animal Hospital, in the City of Central, have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible health care for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call 225-960-7100 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

We recommend yearly physical exams, heartworm test, intestinal parasite screening and vaccinations for pets one to seven years of age. For pets over seven years of age, we recommend twice yearly exams. Dr. Hayes will check the health of your pet from head to tail and make recommendations to keep your pet healthy.

Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts and weight loss/gain or changes in appetite. All information related to your pet is helpful to share with our team. Feel free to ask Dr. Hayes any questions concerning your pets health during your office visit.

In keeping your pets utmost health in mind, Dr. Hayes at times may recommend consultation with a specialist or make a referral for specialized procedures. He will guide you through this process, staying in touch with both you and the specialist.
