Apex Animal Hospital
On this episode I sat down with Dr. Kimberly Cary and her office manager, Jamie Cary. We talked about their rapidly-growing Austell animal hospital that has seen rapid expansion of their patient base due to referrals from happy clients.
Kimberly explained there are numerous health issues that can be transmitted between humans and their pets or that both humans and our pets can suffer from that we can benefit from being aware about. Examples are ringworm, Lyme disease, giardiasis, rabies, and others.
The Carys talked about measures we can take to reduce the risk of our pets contracting these illnesses as well as how we can limit the risk of being affected ourselves. In many cases, simple preventive measures are very effective at protecting both pet and owner. These include annual exams and keeping vaccinations up to date.
Problems related to tick- and flea-borne diseases can easily be prevented by a regular dose of topical or edible medications. And in areas of high likelihood of ticks, there is a vaccination available for dogs to prevent Lyme disease.
The practice offers a full array of pet services and has been specially designed to accommodate both dogs and cats to minimize the stress they experience when they have to be seen or stay in the animal hospital. The office is located on East-West Connector in Austell, GA near Floyd Road.
