Dr. Mozzie Parker


    I am Dr. Mozzie Parker.  Here at THE PET CLINIC, we treat each dog and cat, puppy or kitten, as if he or she were our very own pet. That is my promise to you.  

    From routine check up to emergency care, we are here for you and your pet.

    If you are in need of our services or if you would like to meet me or tour my clinic, do not hesitate to call 228-207-3221 or visit us at 8195 B Woolmarket Road in Biloxi.

“Very professional and helpful. Dr. Parker and her staff are caring and go above and beyond with both owners and the animals.”
