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!

What’s your pet’s Wellness Profile?

Everyday in our Wellness Center we see pets of all size, age, and breed coming in for their annual visit and vaccines. A question our clients often pose to us is “what exactly does my pet need?” Enter our Wellness Profiles. In the links below we will be taking an in-depth look at what immunizations and medications your baby truly needs to fit his or her lifestyle.

BRAVECTO

We are aware of the recent news story questioning the safety of canine Bravecto. We have sold thousands of doses of Bravecto since it became available for use, and have had no known adverse effects reported. We believe Bravecto is safe and effective in the control and prevention of fleas and ticks. This product has fewer adverse reactions reported during extensive testing than most any other parasite product available. Many of our staff members use Bravecto on their own pets, and will continue to do so. This being said, we want our clients to be comfortable with whatever product they use on their fur babies, so we understand if you want to try a different product. We have several options for flea and tick control and prevention, so please ask us what might be best for you.

If you have any questions regarding reactions seen in your own pet after using Bravecto, please call Merck’s Technical Support Team at 1-800-224-5318. And thank you for trusting WellPet Humane with the care of your pet! Please note that due to federal regulations we will not be accepting returns of Bravecto.

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 and till 8 p.m. on Mon. Wed. & Fri. 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.

Wellness-Vaccines

WellPet offers affordable pet vaccination services for any pet owner regardless of income at our Wellness Clinic located at 6225 Peachtree Industrial Blvd in Doraville, Ga 30360.  Our state-licensed veterinarian will administer vaccinations. All proceeds go to help defray the cost of treatments for indigent animals  with life-threatening medical problems.

Vaccinations protect dogs from many viral and bacterial predators, including parvovirus, leptospirosis, adenovirus, parainfluenza virus, and distemper. These organisms cause a wide range of disease symptoms, from sneezing to bloody diarrhea and death. Some vaccines are given yearly, while others are spaced out at longer intervals. Our doctor will help design an individual vaccine protocol suited to your pet’s needs.

  • No appointment necessary
  • No Exam Fee with routine vaccines (Exams are performed in the treatment area, not in an exam room.  If you request that the doctor come into the room an exam fee will apply.)
  • First time patients requiring technician services, such as a heartworm test, nail trim, etc., will be required to be examined by a veterinarian and a limited exam fee will be charged
  • Open on Saturdays
  • Manage your pet records on line FREE at My WellPet
  • Heartworm Prevention and Flea/Tick Products for Less

Hours: Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. We are closed for lunch from 12 noon to 1 p.m.  We will take in patients to capacity.  We will try to accommodate all walk-ins but occasionally if we are too full or have too many people waiting we may ask you to return at another time. For these reasons, we have a 3-pet maximum per single person or family that can be seen in one visit in our walk-in clinics. We try to keep your wait time to a minimum, and if one family brings multiple pets, everyone else will have to wait much longer to be seen.  Please be considerate of others when bringing your 4-legged family to visit us!

Vaccinations given for dogs are 1 & 3 year Rabies (3 year vaccine given based on previous vaccination history and age of pet), Distemper-Parvo (DHLPP), Bordetella

Vaccinations given for cats are 1 & 3 Rabies (3 year vaccine given based on previous vaccination history and age of pet), Distemper (FVRCP), Feline Leukemia (FeLV)

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.

Pharmacy

Low Prices Every Day. At WellPet you save big on Medications and Prescriptions. We are committed to the health and successful outcome of every pet who takes the medicines we provide.

Urgent Care

WellPet Humane offers urgent care for pets between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Closed on Sunday.

  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
