Call us if you are concerned that your snake is impacted. Sometimes, not all the time, is can be avoided.

Dehydration often leads to constipation. The humidity of the tank can also cause issues. Some species vary will need higher humidity than others. Lastly, making sure that your snake is eating the right type of food and the correct amount helps. If they overeat their intestine may become too full and therefore prone to impaction.

----------------------------------------

Please do not call the office if there are no available time slots. Either Schedule an annual exam appointment or keep checking the website for more slots. We will continue to arrange more days as time goes on.

Please note we are a small facility trying to coordinate this alone. This is not a government effort. This is just our staff working together to get as many rabbits vaccinated as we can manage.

-----> IMPORTANT FAQ:

Q: WHAT IS THE VACCINE?
A: -Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Vaccine. For more specifics on the disease click here: http://agr.georgia.gov/.../RHDV-MASTER-Frequently-Asked...

Q: HOW MUCH IS THE VACCINE WITHOUT THE ANNUAL EXAM?
A: $172: What is mandated to be included in the vaccine process and incorporated into the cost is the Exam $60, Microchip $50, Vaccine $42 & Submission & filing of State Required Documentation $20. Our State REQUIRES more than other States in order to import the vaccines. We must adhere to strict guidelines when it comes to the importation, tracking & administering these vaccines.

Q: WHAT IF MY RABBIT IS ALREADY CHIPPED?
A: Great question - If it is a recognizable chip on the universal reader than you do not need another microchip. Then the vaccine will be only $122 for your microchipped rabbit. Yay!

Q: WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY HAD OUR ANNUAL EXAM WITH WINDWARD ANIMAL HOSPITAL?
A: Call our office. You can schedule any other "paid service" and tell them you also need the vaccine. Obviously we want to take care of our patients! : )

Q: Can I make an appointment to get the vaccine?
A: If you want an Rabbit Annual Exam which includes: Exam, Anesthesia, Teeth Clipping, Bloodwork, Microchip, Vaccine, Documents, F***l, Revolution - YES YOU CAN SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT.

Q: What if I only want the Vaccine?
A: Go to our website and click on the sidebar where the vaccine image is and grab a spot. They are 1st Come - 1st Serve. If you do not see any availability DO NOT CALL THE OFFICE, Keep checking back to the website. More dates will be posted regularly.

Q: Do I have to be a Georgia Resident?
A: Yes! You have to be a Georgia Resident.

Q: WHY IS THE PRICE $172 (EXAM, MICROCHIPPING, VACCINE & DOCUMENT PROCESSING)?
A: Because of the manpower to navigate the process of getting approval for the vaccine to be imported to our office, the hours spent jumping through every hoop required to be able to provide the vaccines, the outright costs for the advance purchase of so many vaccines to help the rabbit community. We have to charge for our time and effort. We have dedicated ourselves to the rabbit community to make a difference.

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you! Each spot is saved per rabbit NOT per owner. We do ask that what ever time slot you pick please arrive within the first half of the hour. If you have any questions, please call the clinic at 770-569-7298. Costs: (...

Please remember - if it is too hot for us it is too hot for them. ❤️

Today is an extremely hot day for most of the United States, especially here in Georgia, where we are under a heat advisory with temperatures reaching above 100 degrees Fahrenheit! It’s a great time to remind everyone that it is extremely dangerous to leave your pet in the car, even for a couple of minutes, during this time of year. Guinea pigs have no sweat glands and are at high risk of heatstroke when temperatures reach 80 degrees Fahrenheit and above. Heatstroke can be fatal to guinea pigs as well as other pets and all it can take is a few minutes to lose a beloved pet! As the graphic shows, even in cooler temperatures outside it does not take long for your car to become too hot. So please keep this in mind when planning travel and errands and make sure you have a plan so your pet never has to remain in the car!

In guinea pigs, digestive problems are very common, and the most common digestive illness is GI Stasis (Gastrointestinal Stasis). A quarter of the guinea pig population will get Stasis in their life time. This can cause weight loss, swelling or bloating, sudden life-threatening conditions, and kidney failure if it goes unrecognized and untreated.

Gastrointestinal stasis simply means that the water and food can not pass through the intestine at its normal rate because of the muscles that normally contract to push food through the intestines has stopped or slowed down. That will cause severe digestive problems. Often it is a poor diet, dehydration, stress, or an essential sickness can be the cause.

YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR GUINEA PIG TO GO 24 HOURS WITHOUT EATING, DRINKING AND POOPING! Just call us to discuss if you are concerned.

SIGNS of Gastrointestinal Stasis are:
1. Sitting Crouched or Huddled Over (stomach pain).
2. Teeth grinding is a common sign of pain in Pigs.
3. LOUD Stomach Gurgling: In guinea pigs, gentle gurgling is normal. You don't want it to be too loud or even non-existent.
4. Inactivity: the key is “different” or off-behavior than normal.
5. Constipation: If the amount of f***l pellets is limited or stopped.
6. Excessive, Watery, or Mushy stools.
7. Not eating & drinking as normal.

Simply call us and schedule a check-up. We would rather you be over-cautious than unaware.

We highly recommend all of our clients following: on facebook or checkout their website at: http://www.ogpr.org/ . They have a wealth of information & downloadable instruction on raising a healthy guinea pig.

Let’s talk about dog’s butts for just a moment.

Dogs have two small oval-shaped sacs on either side of the a**s called a**l glands a.k.a. scent glands.

The glands purpose is to produce a fluid which has a strong fishy odor which is unique to each dog. A minuscule amount of this fluid is excreted to mark territory. However, if a dog gets stressed or scared it can accidentally express the glands.

These sacs express (excrete) this fluid typically when the dog has a bowel movement.

A poor diet or an inherited biological problem can cause the sac to malfunction. And if the sac doesn’t empty as designed, it can become impacted and make bowel movements difficult, even painful.

Many dogs will go their entire life without any issues with their a**l glands. However, it isn’t uncommon for the glands to become full, impacted, or infected.

When signs of a**l gland issues occur, simply call us…. We can express them. Then we can teach you how to express them and make changes to help prevent this from happening again.

Signs to look out for:
• Scooting their rear on the floor
• Excessive licking or itching their rear
• Straining or difficulty while pooping

Common causes of A**l Gland Problems:
• Insufficient dietary fiber
• Chronic skin dermatitis
• Obesity
• Chronic soft stool
• Food and/or environmental allergies
• Genetics: While it’s more common for smaller breeds to develop issues with their a**l gland no breed is immune.

- Treatment and Prevention -
If your dog is displaying signs and symptoms of an a**l gland problem, schedule an appointment to have us see your pet. We can manually express the glands and possibly, if needed, prescribe an antibiotic or supplement if there is an infection.

As for prevention, discuss a diet plan for your dog with us. We commonly recommend fish oil supplements and suggest increasing the amount of dietary fiber in your dog’s diet. This could be include adding canned pure pumpkin, cooked fresh pumpkin, and ground bran or flaxseed are a common diet additions. Read the label on the canned pumpkin to ensure it is pure pumpkin only with no added fake sugars. ( not pumpkin pie filling).

As always we are just a phone call or visit away.

Bumblefoot is an infection in the pad of your bird's foot. A very minor cut or abrasion in the pad or toes can lead to this condition. The best way to prevent it is to not have any sharp rocks, sticks, nails, lumber or metal in your duck's pen. If you do, they will find it.

If you need help, simply call us to book an appointment.

Our bunnies have been going to Dr. Colby for the two years we've had them and have received excellent care! This past weekend, we had an emergency with our bearded dragon who had been going to another vet. Even though WAH had never seen our dragon before, they got us in on a busy Saturday and took care of him. Dr. Colby, Heather, and the entire staff at WAH is absolutely amazing. They are professional and are always kind and compassionate. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our precious dragon!
Somebunny’s very happy to be home. Thanks to Dr.Colby and staff for looking after our sweet little Juliette the past couple of days.
I don’t know if you will see this since it is Saturday afternoon but if you do, can someone please call me? I’m having conflicting medical directions and one vet is telling me my bunnies need stomach surgery at UGA and GA House Rabbit Society said they don’t and to bring them to you because it looks like one of them have a heart/lung issue. If someone is wrong, they could be dead by Monday or Tuesday. If the other is right, I waste many hours driving for an issue that was not the issue to begin with. I just need to talk to someone and UGA refuses to say anything other than “we are emergency only”. My number is 762-333-3789.
Bunnies can tank so fast and I’m very upset and still don’t know what to do!
WAH friends, would you recognize this girl? I found her yesterday in the Vicarage Ct area, maybe you can help us to find her owner.
Big shout out to Windward Animal Hospital for taking awesome care of Champ today during surgery! This is the “after” photo of Champ, resting at home. Love Dr. Colby, Josalin, Heather and staff!!! Highly recommend!!
Please tell me you guys are open on july 4th - my poor cat is limping around and crying!
Thank you for all you do for the bunnies!! 🐰🐰🐰
The staff at Windward Animal Hospital had to take over our rehabbing of these babies due to scheduling conflicts and travel. Thank YOU Windward. We love you guys!
do you all see rats? I'm looking for a vet who does for future. Our boys are still babies so hopefully we won't need anyone for a bit. but trying to do my homework ahead of time.
Also what does a standard checkup for a rat consist of and cost?
Thank you, Dr. Colby, Heather, and staff for working with us on Tillie's continued care!! We appreciate all that you do! "Hoppy Halloween"!!!
Hillary wanted to say she has officially recovered from her surgery! She also wanted me to tell Dr. Colby she never wants to see him again and won't miss him in the slightest bit. She's so mean. But thank you Dr. Colby and everyone at Windward! 🐇🐇🐇🐇
Fantastic & friendly place. Highly recommend.
