Southern Pearl Vet HospitalDr. Kara Eilts has been a resident of Slidell for 20 years, and graduated the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. During her career she has owned two franchise clinics and built a strong following of her in-house services here in Slidell.

Southern Pearl Veterinary Hospital will be a full service state of the art facility including in house blood work, digital x-rays, most surgeries, serving dogs, cats and exotic pets six days a week.

Dr. Kara plans to operate an emergency room in the future, which would make it the only one of its kind in our city.

“Why cut corners with the building, I won’t cut corners with my clients.”

Attention to detail and efficient patient care were the top priorities when deciding to build. A specialty contractor was chosen that only works with veterinary clinics to build more that just an office.

Preventative Care such as vaccinations and wellness exams. Dr. Kara will examine your pet from nose to tail, discuss diet and behavior, and answer any questions you may have.

Doggy Day Care is great for active puppies that need to burn off some energy and/or don’t want to be kenneled all day. Current vaccinations are required.

Overnight Boarding at Southern Pearl is not just putting your pet in a kennel while you are gone. These special guests join the day care visitors for lots of play time, or if your pet is shy will receive one on one attention plus exercise in either the large indoor or outdoor play yards.

Full Service Grooming by caring professional staff members who will pamper your pet on their spa day!
