Veterinary wellness care is the various steps taken to achieve ideal well-being for your pet. At Peachtree Pets, we offer the highest quality healthcare and a wide range of pet wellness services from basic exams to more serious services like dentistry and surgery. Everything is designed to keep your pet happy and healthy.
Just like people get yearly physicals, pets need annual wellness exams. At Peachtree Pets you can expect a wellness exam to start with an overall checkup including looking at your pet’s eyes, teeth, skin, and coat, as well as listening to their heartbeat, taking their temperature, and keeping track of their weight. Veterinary wellness exams are important in determining your pet’s general health and noticing if something is out of the ordinary, which may require further investigation.
If your pet ever gets lost, microchips increase the likelihood that your pet will make it safely home. A microchip is a tiny device, about the size of a grain of rice, that is inserted under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. It will not shift or fall out and will remain a reliable source of identification for the lifetime of your pet if you make sure that the information is always current. Microchipping is a personal choice, so speak with our veterinarian to see if microchipping is right for you and your pet.
Vaccinations are an important part of your pet’s health regimen. They can prevent serious and potentially fatal diseases – some of which can be transmitted to humans. There are different types of vaccinations to keep your pet healthy depending on the type of pet, their environment, and their lifestyle. A vaccine injection is relatively painless, and some pets don’t even realize that it’s happening. It’s important to discuss with your veterinarian which immunizations are best for your pet, which are required by law, and to set up a vaccination schedule that works best.
