Kennesaw Mountain Animal Hospital
I have trusted and known Dr. Carrie for 10 years. When she moved from a previous practice I followed her exclusively because I trust her with my clan of animals. When I have an issue, she is the one I know will be honest, and treat my pet as her own. When Dr. Melissa joined the team I found these same qualities in her as well. She has performed surgeries on 2 of my pets within the past year, the most recent one being my 9 month old kitty with a large foreign body. Nine inches of her intestine had to be removed, and she was close to death, however, due to the skill and aptitude of Dr. Melissa, Dr. Carrie and the entire staff at Kennesaw Mountain she pulled through and is running around happily today. Whenever any of my friends have a pet that has any kind of medical issue, I always recommend Kennesaw Mountain. They take the time to get to know you, your precious pet, and go the extra mile to get them healthy!

Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
