Like people, dogs have two cruciate ligaments to help provide support for the knee. Their presence keeps the femur and tibia from sliding around and destabilizing the joint. Repairing torn cruciates is a fairly most common surgery at our animal hospital. Certain breeds (Labradors and Rottweilers) show up with this injury more frequently than other pets.

The Animal Medical Clinic provides the most comprehensive dental care available in private practice. We have digital x-ray technology (Peachtree City location), state-of-the-art dental equipment and we use only the best dental health materials. We use a laser for oral surgery and provide comprehensive pain management when needed. Proper dental care at home and at the veterinary hospital is likely the most significant care you can provide for your pet to keep them happy and healthy.
We are proud of our digital ultrasound unit. It gives us the opportunity to look at your pet's internal organs quickly and painlessly without anesthesia and surgery. In addition, we can examine the heart and heart valves using the color-flow doppler capability of our ultrasound machine.
