preventive health care

Preventive Health Care:
Preventive health care is a must for all pets. It keeps your pet healthy, active and helps them to live a long, stress free life. This includes annual vaccination, regular deworming, tick and flea check and control as well as a complete physical examination. We also provide microchipping facilities.
Sterilisation is also a big part of preventive health care. Outside of the obvious social and behavioural benefits, there are numerous benefits to sterilising your pet. Studies and research show that sterilisation greatly reduces the risk of mammary tumours and uterine infections like pyometra in females and testicular tumours.

Operating theatre facilities, pre and post operative care, anaesthesia:
We have a state of the art operating theatre with anaesthetic and patient monitoring equipment. Gas anaesthesia (isoflurane) is the standard anaesthetic used )which is the same as is used in human surgical procedures. A patient monitor ensures that vital statistics are monitored and watched at all times during surgery.
Owners of pets are briefed before hand on pre operative procedures like starvation and tests required.
Our doctors and staff are committed to providing the best possible post operative care. Owners are guided through the process of recuperation and our doctors are available at all times.

It is not an uncommon site to see one of our doctors attending to a squirrel or an injured bird rescued by a good Samaritan.


Home dental care should be a daily part of each animal’s life. The commitment to time, energy, and resources from the owner will impact the quantity and quality of their animal’s life.


• Toothbrush (e.g., ï¬Â ngerbrush, pet toothbrush, human toothbrush), gauze, washcloth, pantyhose, Veterinary toothpaste,


• Home dental care should begin at 8–12 weeks of age. Brushing is not critical until the adult teeth erupt, but starting early allows the animal to become accustomed to the procedure during an impressionable period of development.


• Regardless of age, introduce brushing slowly and gradually, allowing the animal to determine the amount of time at each stage.
• As each step is begun, observe for the animal’s reaction and only advance to the next step once the animal is comfortable.
• Massage the animal’s muzzle and lips gently.
• Introduce your ï¬Ânger dipped in meat soup or garlic water (canine) or tuna water (feline) into the buccal pouch under the upper lip and rub the gum line.
• Introduce your ï¬Ânger covered with a gauze, washcloth, or pantyhose and rub the gum line and teeth in a circular motion.
• Introduce a pet toothbrush or a very soft human toothbrush held at a 45° angle to the tooth surface, brushing in a oval motion.
• Introduce the toothbrush with veterinary toothpaste.
• As the animal accepts the procedure, brushing of the lingual surfaces can begin.
• Place the nonbrushing hand over the muzzle and tilt head backward to open the animal’s mouth.
• Brush the visible teeth (opposite side) and then repeat on the other side.
• Brush daily, at a minimum of 3 times a week.

Adjuncts to brushing

• Dental diets or treats
• Rawhide bones (e.g., Nylabone)
• Yearly dental examinations and cleanings, if needed

Tips for successful brushing:

• Select the same time each day to brush so the animal expects it (routine and repetition).
• Brushing in the evening is often preferred as everyone is in a more quiet mood.
• Sessions should be short, roughly 2–3 minutes.
• Offer praise and reassurance during and following the brushing.


• Human toothpaste, baking soda, or hydrogen peroxide
• Heavy restraint
• Brushing aggressively
• Brushing if the procedure may cause pain (e.g., recent thorough oral examination, exposed pulp cavities, gingivitis, ulcerations, tooth mobility)
• Natural bones, cow hooves, hard nylon toys as they may fracture teeth

In-patient care


We are so particular about our appearance and general hygiene. Even a small blemish on the skin doesn’t go unattended. We indulge ourselves from time to time to look and feel great. Our pets deserve the same kind of indulgence and skin care. Cessna Lifeline is proud to offer premium salon and skin care services designed to pamper your pets. We are dedicated in our endeavor to provide the highest quality professional grooming services to our pet clients. We offer each pet special care keeping in mind their individual needs. We believe in making grooming a paw-sitive for your pet! We offer both aesthetic services that make your pet look and feel great and veterinary grooming services that take care of skin issues.
At Cessna, we want our pet clients to enjoy their grooming session, and take utmost care in handling them. We are very particular about maintaining hygiene and safety. Only freshly washed towels, premium quality products and shampoos prescribed by veterinarians, are used for grooming.
It is important to groom your pet regularly. Apart from helping them feel light and relaxed, it helps in detection of lumps, wounds, abscesses etc that may otherwise go unnoticed. It also helps your pet socialize and get used to being taken care of by people other than you.

Brushing your pet regularly is very important, whether their hair is long
or short.
Brushing has the following benefits:
1. Reduces hair fall.
2. Helps in the removal and prevention of mats and knots.
3. Reduces occurrence of hairballs that be harmful.
4. Relaxes your pet & creates a deep bond between you & your pet.
5. Reduces occurrences of parasites such as fleas, lice, mites & ticks.
6. Enables an even distribution of the naturally occurring oils in
your pets’ coat.
Bathing your pet is important to help maintain good hygiene. It removes dirt and debris from the skin and coat and also helps prevent skin disease and parasitic infestation.

Regularly brushing your pet’s teeth reduces tooth and gum problems and build up of tartar. The benefits of regular brushing are particularly felt, as your pet grows older.

Overgrown nails force your pets to put pressure on the sides of their paw pads as they walk. In the long run, this could lead to arthritis. Trimming your pets’ nails regularly helps keep their paws clean and ensures they don’t carry back mud and other dirt from their trips outside. It also prevents painful conditions like hang nail as well as infections caused due to ingrown nails.

Hydrotherapy & Swimming

  • Is a low impact exercise, which is good for healthy as well as  orthopedically compromised pets.
    • It is helpful in treating conditions like Osteo Arthritis, Hip Dysplasia, and in recovery from injury.
• It is an essential part of the treatment regime post orthopedic surgery.
• Hydrotherapy can help in the treatment of neurological ailments, and to slow down the progression of
   degenerative diseases.
• It helps soothe sore and aching limbs.
• Swimming also helps obese dogs loose weight in a healthy and  regulated manner
• It is recommended for young dogs as it serves as productive outlet  for all that energy!


• Is the treatment of disease, injury or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment and exercise.
• Canine physical therapy adapts human physical therapy techniques to increase function and mobility of joints and muscles in animals.
• It is also applicable to the treatment of cats and large animals like horses.
• Physiotherapy reduces pain, and enhances recovery from injury, surgery, degenerative diseases, age related diseases and obesity.
• Physiotherapy exercises include range of motion, which helps improve flexibility and reduce stiffness.
• Other procedures include passive exercises, coordination exercises and strengthening exercises.
• Heat therapy, the use of the infra red lamp is sometimes coupled with physiotherapy exercises and this combination has shown great results     with older dogs and those suffering from osteoarthris.


• Phototherapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light, and lasers in the healing of specific conditions.
• Phototherapy works primarily at a superficial level and therefore is most effective on the skin.
• Blue phototherapy is very effective at prohibiting bacterial proliferation.
• Red phototherapy works to aid wound repair by encouraging epithelial growth and healthy granulation. These two frequencies of light, used together, are particularly effective in treating chronic wounds or wounds that have broken down and can be used aoer skin graoing to encourage acceptance.
• Red light applied over acupuncture points has the added benefit of initiating a reaction similar to that of acupuncture or acupressure and also has the effect of releasing endorphins, the body's natural sedave.

CT Scan

What Is a CT Scan?

A computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) uses computers and rotating X-ray machines to create cross-sectional images of the body. These images provide more detailed information than normal X-ray images. They can show the soft tissues, blood vessels, and bones in various parts of the body.


What is laparoscopy surgery for dogs?
We take pride in the fact that our patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery experience less pain and a significantly reduced recovery time versus many types of classical, open abdominal veterinary surgeries.
A special miniature laparoscopic camera is then inserted into the hole.
To perform veterinary laparoscopy, a veterinarian cuts a small incision, the size of a keyhole, in the dog's belly.
Real-time photo images from the camera are displayed on a monitor, allowing the veterinarian to view individual organs inside the dog and to guide their surgical instruments.
As a veterinary practice that is prepared to meet any veterinary need your dog may have, Georgia Veterinary Associates is equipped with a laparoscopy unit.
