About Us

Persimmon Creek Animal Hospital

Jennifer Thompson is the owner and veterinarian of Persimmon Creek Animal Hospital. Persimmon Creek Animal Hospital was established in April of 2009 after almost a year of construction. The hospital is located on a small two acre farm near Avery Elementary School at 7875 Union Hill Road, Canton, Georgia 30115.

Persimmon Creek derives its name from a small region in the north Georgia mountains that Dr. Thompson had become familiar with during her early years of practice. The concept for Persimmon Creek was to build a facility that had a rural feel that was in-kind with the surrounding area but, was large enough to house a modern design for a state of the art animal hospital.

As of April 2015 Persimmon Creek has nearly 2,500 clients and has treated dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, owls, Siberian lynx, and other assorted pets. Because Persimmon Creek’s boarding facility had limited capacity and at the request of the clients, the hospital expanded its boarding to handle 45 pets. The construction of facility began in March of 2011 and was completed in October of 2011.

With the addition of a new boarding facility, Persimmon Creek services include dog & cat boarding, baths, vaccines, surgery, internal medicine, orthopedics, dental care, nail trimming, as well as general medical services such as x-rays, exams, and heartworm & flea treatment.

Persimmon Creek is committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care and health-related educational opportunities for its clients. Persimmon Creek Animal Hospital strives to offer excellence in veterinary care to Canton, GA and surrounding areas such as Cumming, Holly Springs, Roswell, Woodstock, and Cobb..
