Preventative Medicine

One of the keys to your pet’s health is heading off medical issues or illnesses before they occur. The best way to do that is with proper wellness care, which alerts you and your veterinarian to any conditions that may develop down the road, and helps you prevent them before they cause a problem. At Powder Springs Animal Clinic, we make annual wellness exams an essential part of our regimen to keep your pet happy and healthy.

Vaccinations

To prevent infectious diseases and chronic illnesses, it’s essential for your pet to get the full array of recommended pet vaccines. At Powder Springs Animal Clinic, we give vaccines to puppies and dogs—kittens and cats—four-legged friends of all ages.

Flea and Tick Control

The effect of parasites on your pet can range from bothersome to fatal, so it’s a good idea to take preventive measures that stop parasites before they infest or infect your pet. At Powder Springs Animal Clinic, we know that parasites are relatively easy to prevent, yet once they take hold, are very difficult to get rid of. We offer the very best in flea and tick control and prevention, as well as heartworm prevention.

Spay and Neuter

At Powder Springs Animal Clinic, we provide caring, cost-effective spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs. It’s a simple procedure and a humane precaution to take

Pain Management

The practice of high-quality veterinary medicine focuses on the entire patient – from medical issues that affect physical functioning, to emotional and psychological issues that affect well-being. Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when we are treating a pet for any medical condition.

In-House Laboratory

Laboratory testing is “a window into your pet’s body”, helping us see the health of the organ systems. Sometimes, a pet that appears healthy can often be hiding symptoms of disease. A physical exam may not be enough to diagnose your pet and additional diagnostic tests may be required.

Prescription Diets

Feeding your pet the highest quality food is one of the best ways you can contribute to his or her health and vitality. Although the differences between premium and budget varieties may not be apparent on their nutrition labels, they are in the quality of the ingredients. Both may contain the same amount of protein but be very different when it comes to digestibility and nutritional value.

Euthanasia

There are times when all the capabilities of medical science have been exhausted and euthanasia is the only way to prevent an animal from suffering needlessly. However, the decision regarding when to euthanize is fraught with medical, financial, ethical, religious, moral, and sometimes legal considerations. Euthanasia is therefore a medical procedure that needs to be discussed (however painful that discussion may be) and considered thoroughly before a final decision is made. Let us help you through this difficult time.
