For those pets that are not feeling well, our clinic provides state-of-the-art treatment and diagnostic services. Our doctors are trained to treat just about any illness including allergies and other skin conditions (dermatology), heart problems (cardiology), intestinal problems (gastroenterology), arthritis and other joint problems and many others. We have a comprehensive laboratory on site which provides testing results in minutes. In addition, we utilize a large outside diagnostic lab for additional tests. Other services provided are radiography, digital x-rays and digital ultrasound which provides a non-invasive way for us to take a detailed look inside the chest or abdomen.

Surgery & Laser Surgery

The Animal Medical Clinic performs most surgeries necessary for your dog or cat, including spays and neuters. In addition, we perform many procedures not routinely done at many small animal hospitals. This includes many cancer surgeries and orthopedic procedures, especially knee surgeries such as cruciate ligament repair (TTA procedure) and luxating patella surgery (MPL). The majority of surgeries are done utilizing our surgical laser. The surgical laser minimizes bleeding, pain and infection. We take great pride in our anesthetic safety, monitoring and post-operative pain relief management.

Dental Care for Pets

The Animal Medical Clinic provides the most comprehensive dental care available in private practice. We have digital x-ray technology (Peachtree City location), state-of-the-art dental equipment and we use only the best dental health materials. We utilize a laser for oral surgery and provide comprehensive pain management whenever needed.


Proper dental care at home and at the veterinary hospital is likely the most significant care you can provide for your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Studies have shown that dental disease is the most common medical problem affecting our pets. Dogs and cats frequently develop tartar buildup, gingivitis, periodontal disease, cavities and many other problems in their mouth. This leads to infection in their mouth which can spread to other organs, as well as pain when eating and bad breath.

We will recommend a dental cleaning by one of our veterinarians when these problems begin to develop. Afterwards, our staff will make recommendations to help you keep your pet’s mouth healthy and pain free at home.

Proper professional dental cleaning can make an enormous difference in the comfort, health and appearance of your pet’s mouth!

Cruciate Ligament Knee Surgery in Dogs (Torn ACL)

Like people, dogs have two cruciate ligaments to help provide support for the knee. Their presence keeps the femur and tibia from sliding around and destabilizing the joint. Repairing torn cruciates is a fairly most common surgery at our animal hospital. Certain breeds (Labradors and Rottweilers) show up with this injury more frequently than other pets.
Dogs can rupture these ligaments with sudden twisting movements while running or even from slipping on the floor.
In most cases, diagnosing a cruciate tear simply requires a veterinarian’s examination. Palpation of the knee joint is the key to the diagnosis although it is also a good idea to take x-rays of both knees to look for any other problems.
The next step is surgery. For small dogs weighing 20 pounds or less, we usually recommend a procedure called a “Lateral Suture” or “Extracapsular Repair”. This surgery allows these small patients to regain normal use of their leg in 8-14 weeks with minimal risk of complications.
For larger dogs, we recommend a procedure called a Tibial Tuberosity Advancement or “TTA”. During this surgery, a cut is made into the front part of the tibia (shin bone) just below the knee and this bone is advanced forward to help stabilize the knee. A titanium metal plate and spacer (cage) is screw into place to maintain the bone in this new position.

After surgery, dogs undergo a 10-12 week recovery and rehab period. Once healed, most dogs are able to return to full and pain free activity! If you have any questions regarding knee surgery for your dog, please call our Peachtree City location (770-487-1338 ) and ask to speak with Dr. Vince or Dr. Jeff.
