Just another part of the convenience we offer, we deal with our own laboratory instead of waiting for the results from an outside lab. We find out quickly and assist in educating you on next steps in the care of your pet.

With large indoor runs in an air conditioned and heated boarding facility your pet will be taken care of by our attentive and compassionate staff. We strive to offer piece of mind knowing a veterinarian is available should a problem arise. Boarding reservations are available on a flexible schedule.

Vaccines
Infectious diseases can cause serious illnesses, permanent tissue/organ damage, or even death. Vaccines are the easiest way to prevent many of these diseases or at least reduce their severity.

Digital radiography
Our goal of providing the highest quality of veterinary medicine cannot be achieved without the sophisticated diagnostic tools we use in the hospital daily. Radiography (A.K.A. x-ray) is a essential diagnostic tool that allows us to evaluate soft-tissue and boney structures. Our digital x-ray unit reduces the turnaround for radiographs which allows us to more quickly diagnose problems and allows for a more rapid treatment response.

Ultrasonography
Ultrasonography is fast becoming one of the most useful diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine and is considered the imaging modality of choice for many diseases and conditions. Ultrasound produces a visual map of the interior of the body and is often a critical tool for to the comprehensive diagnosis of cancer, adrenal disease, liver disease, kidney disease and gastrointestinal problems.

The quality and accuracy of the ultrasound are directly influenced by the skill, training and experience of the sonographer doing the testing. Ultrasound quality is also strongly impacted by the sophistication of the equipment being utilized. At East Paulding Animal Hospital, our Doctors of Veterinary Medicine have a thorough understanding of the indications and guidelines for ultrasound examinations, and are familiar with alternative and complementary imaging and diagnostic procedures.

Soft tissue surgery
In addition to spays and neuters, East Paulding Animal Hospital offers various soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries.  To insure the comfort, health and safety of your pets, we regularly utilize IV catheters and pre-op blood testing. In addition we use state-of-the-art equipment to monitor the heart, lungs and vital organs during surgery. Our veterinarians have the commitment and expertise to handle necessary non-emergency procedures that may be discovered during an exam. When surgery is required, we make sure you know what is going on at all times and continue to provide exceptional care during the recovery process.

Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic repairs are an advanced surgical procedure to repair bone and ligament damage. Most of these surgeries can be performed by our veterinarians including patella luxation and cruciate injuries.

Nutritional counseling
By keeping your pet on a proper diet and workout plan, it can increase their life expectancy by up to 2-3 years. In addition to the extended life expectancy, you will also see a happier pet with fewer stomach issues, less sensitive skin and a nicer coat.

Upon evaluating your pet's current nutritional condition, we will make specific recommendations as to the type and amount of food your pet should be eating as well as any supplements. In addition, we'll provide you with a workout program for your pet that will keep them in tip top shape!

Laser therapy
Laser therapy is an affordable, surgery free, drug free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and increase speed of healing.

Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased heading speed.

Microchip Pet Identification
If only animals could talk, the problem of lost pets would not exist. Universally recognized microchips gives voice to companion animals by means of stable and proven solutions for electronic pet identification that are the foundation for a global pet reunification system.

What better way to provide your pet with a permanent safety net than with internationally recognized microchip? When your pet is implanted with an ISO compliant microchip, you can be assured that your veterinarian is using a system that is safe for your pet, universally recognized, and can be read by any ISO-compliant scanning device worldwide.
