Our compassionate surgery team is dedicated to the care of your family pet.
George Allan Edwards, DVM
Dr. George Edwards is the owner of Magnolia Veterinary Surgery and has undergone extensive post-graduate training in veterinary surgery. Dr. Edwards is a native of Louisville, MS and completed both his Bachelor of Science degree and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree at Mississippi State University. He graduated from MSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008 and continued to pursue his career in veterinary surgery. This led him to complete a rotating internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College, in Prince Edwards Island, Canada, followed by a one-year surgical internship at Animal Hospital Specialty Center in Denver, Colorado. After his internships, he completed his three-year, small animal surgical residency under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Hancock at a private veterinary surgical referral hospital, South Paws Veterinary Surgical Specialists, in Mandeville, Louisiana. Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Edwards was offered and accepted an associate surgeon position at South Paws, and worked exclusively in referral based veterinary surgery for two additional years. In February of 2015, George and his wife, Sara Catherine, moved their family to Tupelo and established Magnolia Veterinary Surgery. George, Sara, and the Edwards family are excited to be back in North Mississippi where they feel at home.

Magnolia Veterinary Surgery offers a wide range of surgical procedures.
Pre-surgical phone consultations are encouraged. This will help us form the best surgical plan for safe intra-operative and post-operative care. Not all surgical procedures are best performed on a mobile basis. Some critically ill patients or those requiring extensive postoperative care may be better suited in a multi-specialty referral environment. Please contact us for further discussion and with any questions about potential cases, or for surgeries not listed.
