Happy Tails Veterinary Care Keeps Furry Family Members In Tip-Top Shape

By Pamela Sosnowski

In addition to the right food, playtime, and hugs and kisses, pets need regular veterinary care to stay happy and healthy for their entire lives. Since June of 2015, Happy Tails Veterinary Care of Winder has been doing just that, by providing outstanding care and service and developing relationships with many satisfied pet owners.

"Our services include routine care, such as vaccines, spaying and neutering, and dental cleanings, as well as emergency care," says Dr. Kristopher Kleine, one of the facility's veterinarians. "While most veterinary offices offer these services, we hold ourselves to high standards and have, as a result, become AAHA accredited and an official Cat Friendly Practice. Our facility is state-of-the-art and our staff takes pride in their excellent customer service and compassion for our patients."

In addition to routine services, the animal hospital provides emergency care, surgical procedures, lab services with access to a full outside laboratory, and a full in-house pharmacy. They also perform acupuncture, physical therapy, and even the relatively new treatment of stem cell therapy. Nutritional counseling, behavioral consultations, and microchipping services are also available.

The hospital also offers a Free Vaccines for Life Program, allowing pet owners the opportunity to save up to $50 a year on annual vaccinations. Owners pay a one-time enrollment fee per pet, which entitles them to receive lifestyle-based vaccines for free for the rest of its life upon the completion of an annual regular exam.

Happy Tails' Cat Friendly Practice certification means that the office has been recognized by the American Association of Feline Practitioners as a veterinarian office that caters to the needs of cats, which tend to be more skittish and scared then dogs when taken out of their home environment. Inclusion in the Cat Friendly Practice program means that the staff understands the unique needs of cats and have made their office as stress-free as possible, and that they know how to approach and handle felines in a gentle, caring manner.

As Dr. Kleine explains, "Our practice has gone through rigorous evaluation to become AAHA accredited and we constantly strive to better ourselves when it comes to caring for our pet patients and helping their owners."

Dr. Kleine recommends yearly visits for pets under 7 years of age, and twice a year for animals over 7. "This allows our staff and doctor to not only ensure your pet is up to date on all necessary vaccines and testing, but we can also detect many medical concerns sooner with regular visits," he explains. "We want every pet and owner coming into our office to feel like they're family and leave at the end of their visit knowing they've received the best care."
