Wellness & Vaccinations
Annual Wellness Exams
Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital promotes proactive pet parenting; as the sole voice for your pet’s health, you are taking proactive steps just by reading this information and that’s a great start! As humans, we need to have annual check-ups to identify new issues in our ever-changing bodies. Well, the same goes for pets.
An Annual Wellness Exam is the “crystal ball” of your pet’s health, as it provides a detailed snapshot of possible issues before physical symptoms appear. As our pets are masters at hiding pain and discomfort, internal issues can gain momentum for months to years before you are aware. In the instance of kidney disease (a common diagnosis among pets), by the time symptoms present themselves, 75% of irreversible damage has already occurred to the kidneys. For this reason, we urge all pet parents to schedule annual Wellness Exams.
Whether it’s pets or people, vaccinations have long been the best prevention of diseases for decades. With the increasing number of pets co-mingling in our society and the fact that not all pet parents keep their pets current on vaccinations, it is your responsibility to ensure your pet is protected against the risks that are present with those who are not vaccinated.
If you board your pet or wish to enhance your pet’s wellbeing through day play, and/or training; their vaccine records will be a factor for sure. Vaccinations are required by boarding, day play, and training facilities for a reason…the risks are out there, don’t be the parent that wishes they had made the right decision after it’s too late.
The aspect of the costs involved to keep your pet’s wellness at the forefront is a common topic of discussion with our clients. Therefore, we have Wellness Plans available to soften the effects on your wallet. Our Wellness Plans are designed to combine the cost of all treatments your pet would need annually and spread it throughout 12 months. The cost of vaccines, $200 towards flea/tick/heartworm preventatives, one bloodwork panel, a fecal exam, a urinalysis, and two nail trims are included with their Wellness Plan. For being a proactive pet parent through a Wellness Plan, we waive future exam fees in appreciation of your good decision.
You want to see your special pet enjoy many wonderful years. We’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call us today and let’s get started!
“I cannot speak highly enough about every single person at Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital. They truly embody their mission statement “Where we treat you like family and your pets as our own.”
“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!!!!”
