We're pleased to offer the following services at Animal Hospital of East Cobb
To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Please let us know all of your concerns when you make an appointment so that enough time is allotted for the doctor to address your questions. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
For your convenience, "drop-off" appointments are available. A "drop off" means you may bring your pet and leave him/her with us until the doctor can examine him/her. Usually we will ask you to drop off sometime in the morning so our doctor can examine the patient as time allows or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, you will receive a phone call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
Patient Arrival Policy
For the safety of animals in our care and humans in our facility, we require that pets' vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pets. Dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms. Cats must be presented in an appropriate carrier or on a leash.
We have a veterinarian on duty 6 days a week who is trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
At Animal Hospital of East Cobb, we can care for many types of pets:
