New Kitten Suggestions

More Athens, GA households have dogs than cats, but cats far outnumber dogs as pets. How is this possible? Because many cat lovers believe that when it comes to feline friends, one is simply not enough. Single-dog households are routine, but with cats, the more the merrier!

    

 

 

It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care to the Athens Community throughout the life of your pet. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy animals; early detection and treatment of disease as your companion animal ages; and medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.read more
04 Please GA is a High-Risk State for Heartworms!

  • Heartworm disease is a very serious and potentially fatal condition spread by infected mosquitoes. Once injected by the mosquito, heartworms mature into adults and begin living in the arteries of the lungs or heart of dogs, cats, and other mammals. They can cause serious damage to the heart and lungs and may lead to congestive heart failure. Symptoms in dogs include a mild persistent cough, fatigue, lethargy, reduced appetite, and weight loss. While monthly prevention is safe, easy, and inexpensive, treatment for dogs is normally costly, involves an extensive recovery, and is not always successful. As of yet, there is no reliable treatment available for cats. Georgia is a severely high-risk area for heartworms, so it is important to give your pet heartworm prevention year-round! The monthly heartworm preventives we recommend for dogs are: Advantage Multi (topical- prevents fleas and heartworms), Trifexis (chewable tablet- prevents fleas and heartworms), and Iverhart (chewable tablet- heartworms). For cats we recommend Advantage Multi (topical).
