We Help You Take Care of Your Pet
At Animal Medical Center of Rome, we pledge to provide an exceptional experience for each client and their pet. We do this by forming and maintaining a human-animal bond with your every visit to our state-of-the-art practice.
Routine visits help us determine how your pet is progressing through life. During your pet’s physical exam we perform a “nose to tail” check; we will move along your pet’s body inspecting their mouth, ears, legs, feet, skin, coat, heart, lungs, spine, rectal area, and tail checking for any abnormalities, swellings, or painful areas.
As we know, pets cannot talk and therefore often cannot tell us when something is wrong or if they are painful. We can help you recognize health issues earlier so you can enjoy a healthier pet longer. For instance, did you know that 8 out of 10 dogs have an infection in their mouth that is causing dental disease? This infection can be spread across their body and to vital organs such as their heart and kidneys. We will help you recognize health issues earlier.
Regular wellness visits are not just about finding problems, they are about keeping your pet healthy! During every visit, we will discuss ways that you can prevent diseases such as periodontal disease, arthritis, kidney disease, heart disease, and diabetes from creeping into your pet’s life and shortening their life span.
We commit to caring for your pets like the family members they are by offering a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best and finding any underlying problems even if your pet isn’t showing symptoms.
We are proud to offer you the most knowledgeable staff in the area. We have a combined 100 years of veterinary experience.
