Veterinary Care in Woodstock, GA

We are dedicated to ensuring your pet stays happy and healthy through wellness exams and screenings, yearly vaccines, diagnostic imaging & testing, dentistry, and surgical services. In addition to the day and overnight care you have all grown to love, our pet care team is adept in treating acute illnesses and injuries (or the occasional swallowed sock) all under the same Pet Hotel roof.

Preventative Care

Dogs and cats (and other pets) age far faster than people, so significant changes in your pet’s health can happen in a short time. Wellness visits allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early, when they’re easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventive care.

Here at Woodstock, we work with you to ensure your pet receives preventative care tailored to their needs. Our veterinarians recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us at least once a year for annual checkups. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues or illnesses may need more frequent checkups.

Radiology and Ultrasound

Our hospital is fully equipped with state of the art digital radiographs and an ultrasound machines. We are proud to offer digital radiology, which allows us to provide you with a quicker diagnosis for your pet while using less radiation than traditional x-rays.

Radiographs (x-rays) may be necessary to assist our doctor in making a diagnosis or ruling out causes of disease. X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, and colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate).

Ultrasonography (also called ultrasound or sonography) is a noninvasive, pain-free procedure the doctor may use to examine a pet’s internal organs and other structures inside the body. It can be used to evaluate the animal’s heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, and bladder; to detect fluid, cysts, tumors, or abscesses; and to confirm pregnancy or monitor an ongoing pregnancy.

Pharmacy

Our hospital has a fully operational and stocked Pharmacy. We have everything from medicated shampoos and topical treatments to heartworm and flea medication. Our pharmacy is complete with a wide array of oral medications to treat any systemic condition. We are happy to discuss your pet’s medication with you at any time.

Does your pet hate pills? We can coach you on all of the tricks of the trade to help make medication less stressful and easier on your family. We are here to help, so feel free to bring any questions to our teams attention!

Surgery

We offer a full array of surgical services and options here at Woodstock. We routinely perform multiple types of surgery from a routine spay to major abdominal surgery. Most surgeries are performed in our hospital by our doctors on staff but if your beloved pet requires more extensive surgery such as a hip replacement or thoracotomy, we are happy to refer you to a specialty center for further care.

Dentistry

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3. Dental (or periodontal) disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets.

Common signs of dental disease include:

  • Yellow or brown buildup (tartar) on the teeth
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Changes in eating or chewing habits
  • Pawing at the face
  • Swelling or draining wounds on the muzzle

During your pet’s comprehensive exam, our doctor will assess the teeth and gums to determine your pet’s dental needs, whether it be a dental cleaning or if your pet needs oral surgery to correct a dental issue.

Microchipping

We offer quick and painless microchipping procedures here at Woodstock. Microchips are the only form of permanent ID, unlike a collar or tag, that includes a unique code to help reunite you with your pet if they become lost. 1 in 3 pets will become lost at some point during their lifetime and microchipping takes only seconds to offer you peace of mind. Ten million pets are lost or stolen every year and 90% of lost pets without a microchip will not return home. If your dog or cat is lost or stolen, the chip and its registration is definitive proof of ownership and facilitates speedier reunions. This is particularly helpful in the case of stolen pets when ownership might be in dispute. Microchips are reliable and use nationwide registries, but they ultimately depend on the information that you give. Remember to update your information and provide multiple emergency contacts in case your pet becomes lost while you are out of town.

Microchipping is now ONLY $40! Call to schedule your appointment today.
