Meet the Vet

  • Dr.
    Jessica Ligon
    I have always loved animals and pets so working with them all day and learning how their bodies work fascinates me. Everyday, I feel like I am making a difference in the lives of not only my pet patients, but also their human families as well.


Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. Ligon carries on the excellent tradition of caring for the area's animals as did her father who established the business. She is always so easy to understand and deal with and truly cares about her patients. She (and her father before her) have cared for all of my animals for the past 17 years and counting. An excellent place to get excellent care."
  • "I can not speak highly enough of Jessica and her staff. They are friendly, welcoming , Especially professional. They give their best to treat our babies... as if they are theirs! Blessings to all. Bless her practice!"
  • "We have been taking all of our dogs here for years and the staff is always super friendly and caring. They recently sent us a sympathy card because one of our dogs (who has been there the most due to heath issues) recently passed away. I thought it was very thoughtful and kind and something you usually don't get anywhere else."
