Your Neighborhood Animal Care Center

After being employed by Broussard Animal Hospital, Dr. Chris Duke purchased the animal hospital from Dr. Broussard’s estate after his untimely death in 1983. On the same site, Dr. Duke expanded the facility and renamed it Bienville Animal Hospital a few years later. After purchasing adjacent property to the location in 1990, the Bienville Animal Hospital was poised to expand and enlarge its configuration on Highway 90 in Ocean Springs.

Construction of the 4700 additional square feet which was added to the original 1900 square foot animal clinic was essentially a new veterinary clinic and not simply an addition. Occupancy of what was once again renamed Bienville Animal Medical Center took place in October, 1993. This newer, state of the art complex was recognized by the trade publication Veterinary Economics with a merit award in 1995.
