Preserving Health with Pet Wellness Exams in Atlanta, GA
Pet wellness exams are where we establish your pet’s health baseline, screen for underlying illness, and make sure they’re protected from disease year after year. At Pharr Road Animal Hospital in Atlanta, we recommend annual pet wellness exams as part of your companion’s routine care. This is because their health can change rapidly, and they might not show any clinical signs unless we look for them.
With regular checkups, we can touch base with you and your pet, evaluate their health and lifestyle, and recommend changes if need be. During these wellness visits, we also want to answer any questions you have, so you fully understand your pet’s health and the treatments they need to enjoy a better quality of life.
Safeguard Your Pet with Parasite Prevention
Fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal worms are a frustrating reality for pets and their families, but the threat they pose to your pet can be significantly reduced with parasite preventatives. Many dog and cat owners have probably experienced a flea infestation or had to pull a tick off their pet. But aside from being icky, parasites can also make your pet very sick. Some tick-borne diseases, including Lyme, can be passed on to humans. By protecting your pet from parasites year-round, you also protect yourself and other members of your family.
