Who We Are

Handsboro Animal Hospital is a locally owned veterinary facility that provides comprehensive care to companion animals in Gulfport and the neighboring Mississippi Gulf Coast communities. Offering excellence in veterinary care, our pet health services include wellness care, in-clinic diagnostics, dental care, digital radiography, surgery, laser therapy, heartworm testing, dermatology, immunotherapy, microchipping, boarding, grooming trims and baths, and more. We can also provide international and interstate health certificates upon request. Whether you have a new kitten or puppy that needs his/her first check up or a senior pet that needs routine blood work, we are here to help.

Having more than 50 years of experience practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Williams and his staff are dedicated to providing each pet with convenient, reliable, personal care. We have worked hard to establish a trust with our clients, and they know their pets will receive exceptional veterinary care each and every time they visit. We always treat our pet parents with friendliness, kindness, professionalism, and respect.

We know that your pet is an important member of your family, and that is why we want to partner with you to provide care and guidance through all stages of your pet’s life. We want to help you keep your pets happy and healthy by promoting responsive pet ownership and up-to-date preventive health care. Providing pets with consistent preventive care is the best way to avoid costly medical bills.

Veterinary care has been offered at this location since the mid 1950s when Dr. E. W. Cole established Cole Animal Hospital. In 1972, Dr. R.C. Williams purchased and renamed the clinic Handsboro Animal Hospital. Since that time, Dr. Williams and his staff have made it their mission to ensure that you feel safe bringing your furry family member to Handsboro Animal Hospital and that your pet has the best experience and care that can be provided.

If you live in  Biloxi, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, Gautier, Saucier, and Wiggins, Mississippi, come by and say hello. We would love to meet you and your furry friends and have you join our family at Handsboro Animal Hospital.
