The History of The Pet Hospitals
Dr. Christine Gibson purchased The Pet Hospitals (Panther) in 2002 from Dr. Eric Probst, who had practiced in the Petal location since 1992. The little yellow house was remodeled with a front porch, a fenced exercise yard, a dog boarding kennel, a cat boarding room, and an isolation ward for the sickest pets.
Over the years, thanks to a fabulous staff and the patronage of many great clients and their four-legged family members, the little pet hospital continued to grow.
In 2014, Dr. Gibson enrolled in the Chi Institute and earned a certification in Veterinary Acupuncture. The hospital expanded its services to include holistic care, but property limitations prevented them from adding more space.
In 2018, Dr. Gibson’s niece, Dr. Kate Lee, joined the staff, and they decided to add a second location just outside of the Petal city limits on the Evelyn Gandy Parkway.
The Pet Hospitals (Parkway) opened its boarding kennel on Memorial Day weekend in 2018 and has been a full-service veterinary hospital ever since. The newly constructed building offers plenty of space to treat dogs, cats and exotic pets.
Dr. Gibson and the entire team at The Pet Hospitals love seeing familiar faces and making new friends while continuing to serve the community from both locations.
Both of our locations offer the following:
