When was the last time you took your cat or dog to visit the veterinarian? Was it because your pet was ill or do you make a point of visiting the animal hospital for regular wellness visits? Our veterinarians want pet owners to know that wellness care is the cornerstone to keeping your pet happy and healthy.
It may not seem necessary to take your pet to the vet once a year for a check-up when he or she seems perfectly healthy. However, such preventative care visits can detect potentially serious health problems early when they are easier--and less expensive--to treat. Regular vaccines also help your pet fight off serious diseases that can strike even indoors pets or even infect your family members. Even if your dog or cat stays inside, he or she can come into contact with another dog, cat, or disease carrying rodent. The most effective way to combat disease and infection is through preventative care and routine vaccinations.
At Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic in Canton, Georgia, we stress to all of our pet owners the importance of wellness visits. Such visits allow us to offer preventative vet services, such as vaccines and professional dental cleanings. Our annual exams include an array of pet services, including a full physical exam, diagnostic blood work and a fecal sample to test for disease. Our experienced and caring veterinarians treat animals from puppies and kittens to senior dogs and cats.
Our state-of-the-art vet clinic serves patients in Canton, Cherokee and throughout north-central Georgia. In addition to wellness pet services, we offer dog and cat boarding as well as emergency care. We are open six days a week and keep early morning and early evening hours to help fit into your busy schedule.
How do you keep up on regular wellness vet visits for your pets? What other steps do you take at home to ensure your pet's health?
