Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide high quality veterinary care and service to clients in our region.  We have an exceptionally equipped large animal clinic that is able to handle almost all equine and bovine medical or surgical issues.  We have digital X-ray capabilities, large animal portable ultrasounds, endoscope, cattle tilt table and hospital facilities to provide care for critical patients.  The Deep South Animal Clinic also has in-clinic laboratory facilities, large animal portable weigh scale for rent and an Aqua Cow float tank to provide care for down cows.

Our staff is able to provide numerous services that enhance beef reproduction in the herds of our clients such as custom A.I. (artificial insemination) synchronization programs, ultrasound pregnancy diagnosis, bull breeding soundness examinations and in-clinic semen collection.  We also provide assistance to producers with nutritional planning and management.  As well, the Deep South Animal Clinic offers development and implementation of herd health programs tailored to each individual producer and their program.

Dr. Andrew Acton, veterinarian and owner of Deep South Animal Clinic has pursued further training and is now a diplomate with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners and is certified in Beef Cattle Practice.  With over twenty years of experience in the industry as both a veterinarian and cattle producer, Dr. Acton is a valuable resource for producers in the area.

The Deep South Animal Clinic is also well-equipped for providing both medical and minor surgical care to our equine patients.  The clinic is able to house equine patients indoors for treatment and care of various injuries including cuts or other wounds.  The clinic also offers lameness examinations in clinic and either in-clinic or on-farm prepurchase examinations with our portable digital X-ray equipment.  In addition, we offer reproductive management services including ultrasound pregnancy diagnosis and artificial insemination breeding on mares.  Dental examinations and floating with the PowerFloat are also available to our clients.

Deep South Animal Clinic has a complete small animal clinic which allows us to perform thorough health examinations and vaccinations. We are able to provide routine surgeries such as spaying and neutering on both canine and feline friends.  As well, we are able to provide services such as digital X-ray, fracture repair, exploratory surgeries and complete dental examinations and care for small animals.  The clinic has the abilities to offer abdominal ultrasound, intensive care, boarding and more.  In addition, we carry a wide assortment of veterinary diets for both canine and feline companions.  Nutritional consultation for dogs and cats can be sought from both our registered veterinary technicians and veterinarians on staff.  Since all of our staff members are pet owners themselves, we appreciate and understand the bond, joys and challenges faced by each of our clients with their own pets.
