Includes 2 vaccines of your choice along with the pre-vaccination evaluation by a veterinarian.

Includes 3 vaccines of your choice along with the pre-vaccination evaluation by a veterinarian.

Includes 3 vaccines of your choice, a heartworm (canine) or combo test (feline) and the pre-vaccination evaluation by a veterinarian.

And as always you have the option at your convenience to choose vaccinations al la carte. For further details on vaccines, tests, and other Wellness services, please Click Here.

Flea and Heartworm Prevention Made Easy!

As a clinic running in the south, we feel it is imperative for your baby to be on flea and heartworm prevention year round. Having your baby on prevention can save you time and money on treating flea allergies, having an exterminator visit the house to kill said fleas that caused the allergies, and of course, avoiding having your pet undergo heartworm treatment itself. Here at WellPet Humane we carry a variety of different preventatives for fleas, ticks, heartworms, as well as intestinal parasites. To make your selections a little easier, we decided to make a little cheat sheet for our clients, to better help you decide how to protect your baby!

For our canine companions we carry:

Low Cost Services

Low Cost, Affordable Pet Services is our commitment. We offer value for our clients! Atlanta’s Pet Charity Clinic is devoted to the veterinary care of animals owned by financially challenged individuals as well as human rescuers, shelters or animal welfare groups.

Sick / Injured

Our Urgent Care department is open for walk-ins from 8am to 4pm Monday through Saturday. We close from 12pm-1pm for lunch and take patients on a first come first serve basis unless the patient is considered critical. Please keep in mind we are not a fully equipped emergency clinic. We will do what’s best for your pet within our capabilities but occasionally that may mean referring you to an emergency clinic that is better equipped to handle your pet’s emergency.

Surgery

Advances in veterinary healthcare knowledge and technology have made possible a level of healthcare for companion animals that, in many cases, parallels what is available in human medicine.

Treatment

dog with thermometerWhen you are experiencing an illness, injury or emergency with your pet, we provide the compassionate care your pet needs. We know that it is sometimes difficult to determine if your pet is in crisis, which is why we encourage you to call and schedule an appointment with one of our client service team members at 770-455-1011. Our trained veterinary staff can answer your questions during your appointment to ease your mind, and provide information that will help you make a decision regarding your pet’s medical care. Our client service team members that answer phone calls are unable to provide medical diagnoses over the phone, so your medical questions will have to be answered during your appointment time.

Urgent Care

WellPet Humane offers urgent care for pets between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Closed on Sunday.

If your pet has any of the following symptoms, proceed to WellPet NOW!

  1. Difficulty breathing
  2. Restlessness, panting, inability to lie down comfortably, unsuccessfully attempting to vomit, and abdominal distention
  3. Seizures
  4. Collapse or profound weakness
  5. Profuse hemorrhage or major known trauma
  6. Protracted vomiting and/or diarrhea (specially if Bloody)
  7. Struggling to urinate
  8. Not eating or drinking
  9. Coughing
  10. Loss of use of rear legs
  11. Severe pain (If your dog is vocalizing, panting, profoundly limping, or exhibiting other symptoms of agony, don’t let him suffer.)
  12. Known exposure to dangerous poisons
  13. Abnormal urination in male cats
  14. Fighting with others dogs or cats

Remember that a situation doesn’t have to be life-threatening to warrant veterinary attention. Broken toenails, ear infections, bladder infections, and hot spots are all survivable, but they are also painful and are best treated sooner rather than later if possible.

 

 

 

Canine Influenza

As many people have recently heard, there has been a confirmed case of Canine Influenza diagnosed in Georgia this week. Although the cross-reactivity of the available vaccine with the current virus is unknown, many boarding and grooming facilities will be requiring dogs to be vaccinated. We are also recommending that any dogs visiting dog parks or other areas in which unvaccinated dogs may be present should receive the Canine Influenza vaccine for protection. We will be carrying this vaccine starting May 26 for those dogs in need.
Vaccine Facts:canine influenza

• The CIV vaccine is manufactured by Intervet/Schering Plough
• Type: killed virus
• Route: given subcutaneously (SQ)
• Age of administration: 6 weeks or older
• Dosage: 2 vaccinations, given 2-4 weeks apart
• Frequency: annual vaccination after the two initial doses

Canine influenza is a new (novel) disease. Dogs do not have any natural immunity built up to protect them. According to Cynda Crawford DVM PhD and co-discoverer of the virus, “virtually all dogs exposed to the canine influenza virus become infected; about 80 percent develop a flu-like illness, while another 20 percent do not become ill. Fortunately, most dogs recover within two weeks without any further health complications. However, some dogs progress to pneumonia, which is usually due to secondary bacterial infections.”

If you are concerned that your dog may have been exposed to Canine influenza and is currently showing symptoms of coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, fever or loss of appetite, please make an appointment with WellPet Humane as soon as possible. Or if you would like to protect your dog against the flu virus, walk in to our Wellness Clinic anytime from 8am-noon or 1:00-4:00 Monday through Saturday and we can start the vaccine series.
