Skin diseases are very common in dogs living in Georgia! We love our dogs so much, and we hate to see them suffering with skin problems. If your dog is itching, losing hair, or has other skin changes, they most likely have one of these conditions:
Both people and pets are helped tremendously by the medical procedure known as immunization. Immunizing a pet is both smart and very inexpensive protection against a variety of deadly diseases that are known to infect both dogs and cats. For many pet owners vaccinating their pets is a simple procedure. While the process is simple, deciding which vaccines to give and when has become more complicated. New vaccines for emerging diseases need to be given at different intervals and not all pets need every vaccination available to veterinarians.
Just like people, dogs and cats benefit from an annual check-up. Your dog or cat will be thoroughly examined in an attempt to find problems in their early stages so they may be addressed before they cause illness. During these appointments, we will also discuss which vaccinations will be necessary, recommend preventive measures against fleas and ticks, recommend needed dental care, and discuss proper weight management and nutrition.
The Animal Medical Clinic is proud to offer comprehensive preventive health care including puppy and kitten care, wellness exams and vaccinations, and geriatric programs. For those pets that are not feeling well, our clinic provides state-of-the-art treatment and diagnostic services. Our doctors are trained to treat just about any illness including allergies and other skin conditions (dermatology), heart problems (cardiology), intestinal problems (gastroenterology), arthritis and other joint problems and many others. We have a comprehensive laboratory on site which provides testing results in minutes. In addition, we utilize a large outside diagnostic lab for additional tests. Other services provided are radiography (digital x-rays available at our Peachtree City location) and digital ultrasound which provides a non-invasive way for us to take a detailed look inside the chest or abdomen.
The Animal Medical Clinic performs most surgeries necessary for your dog or cat, including spays and neuters. In addition, we perform many procedures not routinely done at many small animal hospitals. This includes many cancer surgeries and orthopedic procedures, especially knee surgeries such as cruciate ligament repair (TTA procedure) and luxating patella surgery (MPL). The majority of surgeries are done utilizing our surgical laser. The surgical laser minimizes bleeding, pain and infection. We take great pride in our anesthetic safety, monitoring and post-operative pain relief management.
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.
What would you do if your pet got lost? One of the number one causes of pet death is getting lost! 10 million pets get lost every year. 9 million of these pets are never reunited with their owners. Microchipping pets is a way to give them permanent identification in the event of getting lost [...]
