Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing techniques in the world and we are proud to offer this traditional Chinese medicine technique as a compliment to our medical care. By stimulating specific points on the body, usually by the insertion of fine needles, acupuncture can promote blood flow, relieve pain, speed healing and help the body come back into balance. Acupuncture presents a wonderful alternative for animals who are experiencing unpleasant side effects of medicines and/or those with chronic issues that have not been fully resolved by current medical therapy. We have a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist on staff who performs this service with great results for many patients.
Our hospital is equipped to provide advanced diagnostic procedures to help diagnose diseases.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide that extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern monitoring equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures. We routinely monitor EKG, blood pressure, pulse oximetry, respiratory rate, end tidal carbon dioxide levels. All of our surgical patients are maintained on IV fluids as well.
We offer advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, and aggression.
Here at Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital, our wellness examination and vaccination protocol is slightly different than what you may be used to. We are very interested in preventative care. We have found that early detection of diseases makes for better treatment outcomes.
Since every year of your dog or cat's life is equivalent to seven human years, we do not believe that yearly exams are frequent enough for early disease detection. We have seen that biannual wellness exams allow us to provide the best possible health care to your pet for a variety of reasons. In addition to early disease detection, seeing your pet twice a year allows us to split up how many vaccines your pet receives at one time. Pets, just like humans, can have reactions to vaccines, and splitting the vaccines among two visits six months apart decreases the chance of a vaccine reaction.
The biannual wellness exams also allow us to individually tailor a vaccine protocol to the needs of your pet.
During your first visit to Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital, we will develop a detailed vaccines and exam schedule for your pet. At this time, our reminder systems will be set to alert you via email, regular mail, or telephone when your pet's next wellness exam is due to help ensure the health of your four-legged family member.
We firmly believe that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure!
