Veterinary Services

Breathe easier knowing your furry little friend is in good hands with Southwind Animal Hospital. As a full-service veterinary hospital, we specialize in everything from wellness exams to dental extractions. Our animal hospital is located in Memphis, Tennessee.

Wellness Exams

Keeping your pet healthy is our ultimate goal. We emphasize annual wellness visits that include a complete physical exam, routine vaccinations, as well as blood and urine screening for underlying diseases.

In order to keep your dog or cat parasite free, we advocate monthly administration of medications to prevent heartworms, intestinal worms, and external parasites such as fleas and ticks. We carry a complete line of the most effective products.

For New Arrivals

Puppies and kittens should be examined as soon as they arrive in their new home. Routine vaccinations and de-worming should be started around six weeks of age.


We routinely perform elective surgical procedures, such as spays and neuters, as well as non-elective procedures including orthopedic, soft tissue, and neurosurgical cases.

Good pain management and the safety of your pet while under anesthesia are of utmost importance. We accomplish this goal via:


Dental care is a very important aspect of total health care for your pet. We offer complete dental prophylaxis, including cleaning and polishing teeth, fluoride treatment, and dental charting. In addition, we perform dental X-rays, routine extractions, and client education on home dental care.
