Frequently Asked Questions

  • How often should my pet have an exam and blood work?

    It is recommended that your pet come in for a yearly check-up and blood work. Depending on your pet’s breed and age, and any existing health issues, your Senoia Animal Hospital and Pet Resort veterinarian may suggest more frequent check-ups, blood work, and other tests - common with older pets or when following up post surgical procedure.

  • Why does my pet need a dental procedure?

    A dental procedure may be necessary to treat an infection, correct an abnormal bite, or treat any number of conditions. A thorough teeth cleaning or de-scaling may require anesthesia for the safety of your pet. Your Senoia Animal Hospital and Pet Resort veterinarian will be able to answer any questions or discuss concerns regarding any dental procedures recommended for your pet.

  • How long should I wait to bring my pet in if I notice a change in behavior?

    Pain and discomfort can cause significant changes in your pet’s behavior. If you notice significant and/or sudden changes, contact your Senoia Animal Hospital and Pet Resort veterinarian to discuss further evaluation.

  • What should I do if I notice parasites on my pet?

    Contact Senoia Animal Hospital and Pet Resort as soon as possible if you notice or suspect a parasitic infection. A parasitic infection can be serious and sometimes deadly. Your Senoia Animal Hospital and Pet Resort veterinarian may want to exam your pet and perform tests to determine what kind of infection your pet may have, what treatments may be needed, and whether or not you may need to treat other pets. You might also be directed to collect a stool or urine sample.

They are located at 1090 Highway 54 E, Fayetteville, GA 30214, or call them at 770-460-8166. If you do not have this information handy, the after-hour’s voice message will direct you to the facility.

  • At what age should I have my pet spayed or neutered?

    Most cats and dogs can be neutered as early as eight weeks, depending on the breed. The procedure should be done before they reach six months. Your Senoia Animal Hospital and Pet Resort veterinarian will be able to determine when would be the right time for your particular pet for their age, size, and breed.

  • What are heartworms, and how can I prevent my pet from getting them?
