Regular veterinary care is important to keep your dog healthy. At PetWell Veterinary Healthcare, in Atlanta, GA, we offer a full range of veterinarian services for cats and dogs.
Routine services are designed to keep your dog healthy. These services are aimed at preventative care and early detection.
Vaccinations are important for the health and safety of your dog and other animals. They protect your pet from diseases, some of which can be fatal. Some, like rabies, can also be passed on to humans.
During wellness exams, your vet will perform a physical. Blood and urine testing will be performed to check for diseases or health conditions. Joint health, coat, and weight are a few things that will be checked during a wellness exam.
Your vet will discuss any lifestyle or nutrition changes, and recommend any needed preventative services needed, including flea and heartworm treatment and vaccinations.
Puppies and senior dogs will require more frequent visits than adult dogs.
Disease and Injury Treatment
Of course, if your dog is injured or sick, you will need to visit your veterinarian. We offer animal hospital services. We can treat common illnesses, health conditions, and injuries.
We provide grooming services as well. This can be a convenient option for you and your pet.
Nail trimming can be stressful for you and your dog. Why not leave it to us?
We also provide ear cleaning. This is particularly important for dogs with large floppy ears, like beagles and basset hounds. Regular ear cleaning can reduce the risk of ear infections and mites for any dog, no matter its breed.
Anal Gland Expression
Anal gland expression is another important service we offer. The anal glands are designed to squeeze slightly with bowel movements, coating the feces with fluid.
However, over time, the fluids in the glands can build up. If you notice your dog scooting its butt on the floor, it may need its anal glands expressed.
It's possible for owners to perform the procedure themselves, but most owners prefer to leave it to us.
The procedure, and the associated smell, can be unpleasant.
Alternative or Holistic Treatments
We offer alternative treatments, alongside more mainstream options. We can recommend and provide the treatment that is best for your dog.
Acupuncture isn't just for humans. Dogs can benefit from acupuncture as well. Acupuncture can treat a variety of conditions, including stress, chronic pain, and kidney disease.
We also provide herbal medicine for dogs. Some conditions require conventional medication, but others are best managed with natural options.
