Our House Cats

We at Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital are thankful to share our home with our sweet feline house herd.

Rudy
Rudy
Rudy “Ole Blue Eyes” came to us in 2012 as an owner surrender with chronic constipation and lack of care. He ended up needing his entire colon resected in order to live, so we performed this surgery successfully and he is now a happy and healthy kitty…with a bit of extra gas!
Quincey aka Squincey
Quincey aka Squincey
Quincey became the latest addition to our family in 2018. We first met Quincey when he was weeks old and the Humane Society of Cobb County brought him in for his first check. He was noted to have small eyes at the time, like his eyes never fully developed. Two years later, because of his eye condition, his chance of adoption had been slim, so we said why not make him part of our family. He has a congenital defect called Eyelid Agenesis, which is where the eyelid fails to form completely and leaves the eyeball exposed to many irritants and unable to properly hydrate, resulting in frequent infections, as well as, additional medical conditions. At four months old, Quincy had Cryosurgery to remove his eye-lashes so they will not continually pose as an irritant and introduce bacteria to his eyes, causing further vision impairment. His sight is limited, but otherwise, he’s a happy, healthy boy. He loves to talk (LOUDLY) so most likely you’ll hear him before you see him when you visit our animal hospital.
Maleficent aka Mal
Maleficent aka Mal
Maleficent, came to us in 2015 abandoned in a box at our doorstep overnight with no note or idea where she came from. When she first arrived, understandably, she was extremely nervous and tried to bite or scratch anyone in sight. After some time, however, she has come to trust us as one of her own and is now the “Princess” of our kitty posse. We figured out she had terrible arthritis from being declawed which we now manage with laser treatments and multimode pain management. We also found she had a large bladder stone, of which we removed. Once we got her comfy…she is now a sweetheart…most of the time.

In Memoriam

Frankie
Frankie
Frankie came from the Humane Society of Cobb County.  We adopted Frankie in 2011 after our first house cat, Laddie, passed away and we missed having a kitty wandering the hospital.  We adopted him because he had been there for three years because people are reluctant to adopt black cats due to superstition.  For eight years, Frankie was “living the dream” among his family members/animal lovers. He was a sweetheart and a professional scavenger for food and certainly kept us on our toes to keep all trash cans “Frank proof”. We said goodbye to Frankie in June of 2019 after his irritable bowel disease grew into lymphoma. We miss Frankie every day and know he’s living a bigger dream than he had here on earth.
Mortimor
Mortimor
Mortimor came to Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital in 2010 with the problem of urinating and defecating around his owner’s house. At one point he ate a syringe cap that had to be removed surgically and strangely, after the surgery and after being extremely sick, he no longer had the elimination accidents and settled in as a happy house cat with us for eight years. We said goodbye to Mortimor in July of 2018 and miss him every day.
Pickle
Pickle
Pickle came to the animal hospital in 2011 from the Humane Society of Cobb County. She was a diabetic and a Hemingway cat (polydactyl, having six toes). Pickle had lived for years at the humane society because no one wanted to adopt a cat who required multiple insulin shots each day. The staff of the humane society brought her for a dental procedure and due to severe dental disease, she required full mouth tooth extractions to relieve her oral pain. We decided to keep Pickle after her dental procedure because she was one of the sweetest cats and we could regulate her diabetes well. We gave Pickle a loving home here until we had to say goodbye in 2017. We miss Pickle every day!
Laddie
Laddie
In 2010, Laddie became our first house cat. He was a surrender to Dr. Carrie at her first clinic she worked as a vet where he was a frequent boarder whose owner was going to move and could not take Laddie, so Dr. Carrie immediately adopted him. He came to us at us as soon as we opened, as our first official cat mascot, he was the sweetest, most handsome and cuddly boy ever. We will forever miss Laddie (a.k.a. Hovan).

“The attention and service provided to my two dogs by the vet technician (Ms. Wilder) and the Vet (Dr. McDonald) were impressive. They really put my two dogs first and made me feel they care about the health of my pets.”

“We just put our three-year-old through training at day camp at Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital. Cheyenne and Will are great and Serena’s improved so much that we have taken her to Marietta Market, baseball games for the grandkids, and other little outings.”

“Had to board for four days. I called to check on her and was given in detail how she did. Picked her up and she was not shaking (which she normally does when we are at vets). I will definitely use them again. Love this group. Very friendly and caring!”

“If you need a cat groomer, I recommend Marissa! She was patient with my baby Oliver and made him feel comfortable. And he looks great!!!!”

Frequently Asked Questions

As veterinarians we deal with a wide range of complicated issues in the course of our day-to-day work. If you don’t have all the answers, we might. We have some FAQ documents on a wide range of subjects for your pet. Whether you’re looking for answers to common questions or just curious, our FAQs could be the fastest route to the answers you need.

A puppy’s critical development period is 8 – 14 weeks, training is crucial during this period and is fine, given they’re at the appropriate level of vaccines. Puppies can meet other vaccinated puppies…we require all training participants to be at the appropriate stage of vaccination for their age.
They pose a variety of health and safety hazards. Without knowledge of the other dog’s backgrounds, it’s a risky situation at best. Other pet owners may not be aware of the risks…nor mindful of their pet.
Imagine not brushing your teeth for five years? Infection occurs when bacteria collects between the gums and teeth as they separate; it then enters the blood stream and sets up in the heart, liver, and kidneys.
Absolutely, NOT! Aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Dogs are extremely sensitive to the gastrointestinal effects of NSAIDs, resulting in pain, bleeding, and ulceration.
Change in appetite, lethargy, low energy, aggressiveness, inappropriate elimination, and vocalization are all signs of an underlying issue. Though the symptoms began recently, the issue began well before the symptoms began to show.
Our wellness plans spread out the cost of services throughout the year…much easier on your wallet. Part of your savings includes no exam fee when you come for a visit.
It provides a baseline of values to reference the next time your pet needs treatment. It also detects early signs of cancer, infection and disease, and ensures organs are properly functioning.
On July 19, 2018, the U.S. FDA issued an alert regarding grain-free diets and a possible link to dilated cardiomyopathy (a decreased ability to pump blood); often resulting in congestive heart failure. The correlation of peas, lentils, chickpeas, beans, and potatoes is the focus of the investigation and if your pet is currently on a grain free diet, the FDA urges pet owners to consult their veterinarian.
