Combining Eastern and Western Veterinary Medicine for the most unique, modern veterinary experience.

Our compassionate and integrative approach to veterinary care provides a well-rounded experience for you and your beloved companions. From routine care to specialized Eastern medicine, we’ll be here to help.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been a practice of medicine in China for thousands of years to treat ailments and as preventive medicine. Realizing there was a lack of this practice in Mississippi, Dr. Malone received her certification in acupuncture and is now the only practicing veterinary acupuncturist in central Mississippi. We use Acupuncture as a sole treatment or in conjunction with traditional medicine. This helps us to treat a large variety of illnesses or conditions your pet may have. It involves placing special acupuncture needles into specific points on the body to produce a healing response. Conditions that can be treated with acupuncture include but are not limited to pain, inflammation, allergies, gastrointestinal issues, dermatology, and more.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine can be incorporated with conventional treatments to decrease any negative side effects of conventional treatments and enhance the body’s ability to heal. Herbs are also used to enhance the effects of acupuncture and when Western drugs are no longer working.
Dentistry

Did you know that according to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease? Don’t let your pets become part of this statistic!

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team and we’ll be happy to help.

Diagnostic Imaging

Radiology

There have been many advancements in digital x-ray technology, and we can now manipulate the digital images that we take. This allows us to diagnose issues that may not be seen on a traditional x-ray.

Ultrasonography

Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Ultrasonography is a non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases. Ultrasounds also allow us to look at the architecture of internal organs and examine location, size, shape, texture and blood supply.

Hospice & End of Life Care
The Highland Vet team will be here to guide you through end of life care and the difficult decisions that come with it. Geriatric dogs and cats have given so much in their lives to take care of us and Dr. Malone believes that they deserve excellent care during their geriatric years. We will answer all of your questions about hospice and euthanasia and provide you with resources for this emotional time.

Dr. Malone has personally and professionally experienced the traumatic effects of having to walk back through a busy reception area after receiving bad news or making a difficult decision. To avoid this situation, The Highland Vet has a comfort room with a separate exit that can be used for this as well as regular appointments.

In-House Laboratory
It is difficult to see your pet in pain or suffering and not know what’s wrong. Our team provides in house diagnostics to help us learn what’s wrong and provide an accurate diagnosis. A quicker diagnosis leads to quicker treatment! We provide in-house diagnostic tests to provide faster results.  We also have access to multiple other labs to allow for more specialized testing if needed.
Internal Medicine
We work with your pet’s internal body systems, whether the illness is sudden or chronic. At The Highland Vet, we use minimally-invasive techniques and our diagnostic equipment and procedures to allow us to care for your pet as effectively as possible.
Preventative Care
Wellness Exams

We recommend bi-annual wellness exams to keep our patients feeling their best!  Since dogs and cats age at a much faster pace than we do, this allows us to keep a close eye on any on-going or new conditions that may develop over time. During a wellness exam, we will discuss your pet’s medical history and all current concerns. Dr. Malone and her team will conduct a full-body, head-to-tail exam to get to know your pet and their needs. We will be able to answer all of your questions, address your concerns, and create a wellness plan tailored specifically to your dog or cat.

Vaccinations

Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper vaccinations. Let our knowledgeable team guide you through setting up a vaccination schedule for your dog or cat to keep him or her protected. We can also provide vaccine titers for certain vaccines if you are interested.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites, and the diseases they carry, can usually be prevented with proper medication and maintenance.  Most importantly, heartworms are a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart & lungs of dogs and cats, damaging the heart and lungs and can be fatal.  Unfortunately, Mississippi has the highest rate of heartworm disease in the United States so this makes it even more important to have your loved ones on prevention.  Fleas and ticks are not only a source of irritation to your pet, but they can also harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health.

Surgery
At the Highland vet, we perform routine surgery such as spays, neuters, and mass removals. We also are capable of doing more advanced soft tissue surgeries like foreign body removal, splenectomy, gastric dilatation-volvulus, and more. Our team is highly skilled and experienced, using modern techniques and equipment and always adhering to the strictest standards of safety and care. You can feel confident that when it comes to surgery, your loved one will be in excellent hands with our team!
