  • Dr. Daschelle Roice, our practice owner, has been board certified as a specialist in Canine and Feline practice by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. Dr Roice's expertise and dedication to excellence is expressed throughout the hospital.  It shows in our commitment to a state of the art, full service animal hospital, medical care, and outstanding client experience.
  • We are accredited by the American Animal Hospitals Association. Although only 1500 hospitals in the United States and Canada (about 15%) have achieved this status. We have voluntarily agreed to uphold over 900 standards of practice. In addition, the AAHA inspects Tatum Point Animal Hospital every two years to confirm those standards are met.
  • We love cats at Tatum Point Animal Hospital! Therefore, we have been certified as a Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.  To achieve this certification, Tatum Point Animal Hospital has received special training to ensure our feline patient's visit is as stress free as possible.
  • We take anesthesia seriously. In fact, we believe that with good pre-anesthetic screening, individualized anesthetic drug plans, and proactive monitoring, anesthesia is safe, and allows for procedures that improve your pet's quality of life. Many spay/neuter clinics and general practice veterinarians treat anesthesia as an assembly line. But at Tatum Point, we not only develop individualized anesthetic protocols ensuring that each patient has the appropriate drug combination for their health status, we also designate a surgical nurse who follows each patient throughout their day at the hospital from admission to discharge, and helps to ensure that their experience is as stress-free as possible.
  • We offer thorough, personalized, wellness care. Unlike vaccination clinics, where the veterinarian is only administering the vaccines you order, during your Wellness Exam we consider all aspects of your pet's health, including which vaccines your pet actually needs, their nutrition, preventative care, and answer any questions about your pet that you may have.
  • Dr. Daschelle Roice is committed to providing your pet excellent full-service medical care. Therefore, Tatum Point Animal Hospital has acquired the expertise and equipment which enables us to offer expanded services, such as ultrasound, and extensive in house laboratory testing, that are not available in many general practices. With these services, you will receive advanced care for your pet in a place that you know, often without having to be referred elsewhere for specialty care.
  • Tatum Point Animal Hospital is committed to you and your pet. We know that providing full service care for your pet can be stressful and expensive. Therefore, we are committed to giving you and your pet the best medical care and the best possible experience. In addition, we will make sure you understand your pet's condition. We strive to develop a treatment plan you can complete. Additionally, we will always ensure that you understand the cost and benefits of the options available before you make a decision.
