Veterinary care plays a pivotal role in ensuring the health and well-being of young pets. Puppies and kittens undergo crucial developmental stages that require specialized attention. Regular veterinary check-ups are essential to monitor their growth, address nutritional needs, and administer necessary vaccinations to protect against common diseases. Setting a baseline for future diagnostics is also important, because early detection of potential health issues is key to preventing them from escalating into more serious conditions.

At Animal Medical Center of Cartersville, we offer guidance on proper nutrition, behavior training, and preventive measures, laying the foundation for a healthy and happy life. This often includes proactive care like spay and neuter surgeries, and preventive care such as vaccines to protect your pet from parasites and common illnesses. These early interventions not only contribute to the physical health of the pets but also establish a strong bond between the pets and their owners, fostering a lifetime of companionship and joy.

Throughout your pet’s life, it’s important to be proactive about health.

A wellness exam is a major component of that care. At Animal Medical Center of Cartersville, a wellness appointment begins with a simple health questionnaire that helps us understand any unusual behaviors or symptoms your pet may be experiencing. During the exam, we focus on your pet's diet, signs of weakness, exercise tolerance, and other indicators of health. Weight checks and an examination of ears, eyes, gums, teeth, and various systems ensure a thorough assessment.

Routine blood testing, urinalysis, and other diagnostic tests are standard during wellness exams. These tests establish baseline values, forming a vital reference for future comparisons. As part of our Early Detection Program, we delve into your pet's heart, lungs, reproductive system, skin, and abdomen. Any abnormalities unearthed prompt further diagnostic tests, ensuring we catch health concerns early on. Annual immunizations add another layer of preventive care.

Senior Pets

Aging pets continue to benefit from routine wellness visits, and as they age, these exams can help to prevent and treat age-related illnesses. Senior pets can be affected by conditions like arthritis, which can require extra specialized care. Our team is here to help with issues like pain management and anti-inflammation treatments. We also offer oncology diagnostics and treatment. When the time comes, we can help with end-of-life care.

Our compassionate team can help pet owners navigate palliative options to maintain the best quality of life in the late stages of a pet’s lifetime.
