Flea, Tick & Heartworm Prevention
Does my pet need flea prevention all year round? In warm areas such as Georgia, fleas are active all year round. To eliminate fleas from our pets and environments, we have to break the flea life cycle. This means killing all current and hatching fleas. Just a few fleas can quickly turn into a serious problem. Since our warm temperature allows fleas to grow year-round, we must protect against them even during colder months. For more information on the flea life cycle please read the following articles: Flea Control in Felines [link to article in Research section] and Flea Control in Canines [link to article in Research section].
When should my puppy begin heartworm prevention? Heartworm disease is a very serious, deadly condition that requires extensive, painful treatment and often leads to heart failure and death. Puppies should begin receiving their heartworm preventative at 9 weeks of age. This will provide maximum lifetime protection from this deadly disease.
Does my dog need heartworm prevention all year long? Yes! Heartworm disease is a deadly disease that is spread by mosquitos. Mosquitos are able to live through long periods of below freezing temperatures. Even in the middle of winter, mosquitos can feed and spread Heartworm disease.

Products & Services
Do you offer boarding services? Can my pets stay with you when I’m out of town or on vacation? Yes! We adore our patients so much that we would love to spend the night with them.
Dogs are given two, 10-minute daily walks outside. If your cat enjoys personal interaction and attention, we can provide lots of active play and enrichment each day. All of our pet guests are monitored throughout the day and receive the best care possible. Our medical staff keep an eye on them in case the stress of being away from home causes distress. If this should happen, we are able to care for them quickly and remedy the situation with love, assurance and any treatment interaction if medically necessary. All boarding dogs must be current on all vaccinations as well as an intestinal parasite screening, kennel cough vaccination (Bordatella), and canine influenza vaccination within 6-months prior to boarding. We recommend that all of these vaccinations be brought up to date at least two weeks before boarding for maximum protection. All cats must also be current on all their vaccinations.
Do you offer grooming? Yes. We offer our patients a complete grooming service including baths, sanitary fur clipping, and nail trims, and more. Perfect Wellness Plan members receive many of these service for free.
Do you sell prescription and non-prescription food? Nutrition is one of the most important factors in ensuring a long, healthy and happy life for your pet. At times, specially formulated diets are prescribed by veterinarians to treat serious conditions like kidney disease, urinary tract disease or even weight loss that can prevent or manage heart disease associated with being overweight. We offer Hill’s Pet Nutrition products at the lowest available retail cost. And in most cases, because Hill’s Pet Nutrition products are nutrient rich, your pet will need to be fed a smaller quantity than lower cost, lower quality grocery store food.
How do I dispose of unused medications? Please see the FDA’s guide for medication disposal.
Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like? There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally the patient feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are there any side effects or associated risks? During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take? The typical treatment time is 3 to 8 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
How often should a patient be treated? Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once every week or two as improvement is seen.
How many treatments does it take? This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. Chronic conditions may require 5 to 8 or more treatments. Some conditions may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt? Your pet may feel improvement (usually pain reduction) after the first treatment. Sometimes they will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment? Yes! Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments and massage.
How much does it cost? K-Laser treatment costs vary depending on your vet recommended treatment plan for your pet. Individual laser treatments are around $40. You can save money by purchasing a package of 6 treatments for a discounted price. If your vet recommends extended treatment and maintenance use of laser therapy, we also offer affordable cost-effective plans: 1 zone (area) 6 months unlimited, 2-3 zone 6 months unlimited, 4+ zones 6 month unlimited and 1 week unlimited treatments for things such as acute conditions like snake bites.
Our Perfect Wellness Plan™ members receive a 10% discount on individual, 6 pack, and weekly treatments. Please call us or discuss your treatment plan with your vet for an estimate.
At what age should my pet be spayed or neutered? We recommend spaying and neutering all puppies and kittens by 20 weeks of age. Talk to your vet or visit the Pet Health [link to Pet Health sub-section of Research Library] section of our Research Library [link to Research Library main page].
When does my kitten or puppy need to start vaccinations? Puppies and kittens should start their vaccination series between the ages of 6-8 weeks. For more information on new puppies and kittens as well a complete education presentation about the importance of vaccinations, please check out our Pet Health [link to Pet Health sub-section of Research Library] education information in our Research Library [link to Research Library main page].
