Welcome to The Village Vets Decatur-Ponce
Full-Service Veterinary Care in Decatur
Veterinary medicine isn’t just about treating illness, it’s about preventing it, too. Help us keep your pets well with regular wellness exams. We recommend seeing your pet every year, and sometimes twice a year for senior pets. At a wellness exam, we perform:
- Nose-to-tail physical
- Diagnostic screenings
- Nutritional counseling
- And more
Did you know dental disease is the single most common disease in both cats and dogs? With our advanced animal dentistry, we aim to prevent it entirely. Our trained technicians and skilled veterinarians perform dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, as well as dental surgeries to extract diseased or broken teeth so your pet can be pain-free moving forward. All of our dental procedures receive the same safety precautions as surgery including:
- Pre-anesthetic blood work and exam
- Extensive monitoring throughout the procedure
- Pain medication to reduce discomfort
Vaccinations protect our pets from potentially deadly diseases. We follow AAHA and AAFP guidelines for our vaccination protocol so your pet receives only the vaccines they need. Deciding the right vaccines for them depends on a few lifestyle factors including:
- Health condition
- Level of risk
Dermatology and allergies go hand-in-hand when it comes to pets because their allergy symptoms typically manifest as skin conditions. Our dermatology services aim to soothe their itchy, irritated skin as well as address the root cause of the allergy. With better allergy management with pet dermatology, your pet can lead a happier, healthier life. Our dermatology services include:
- Cytology (skin cell analysis)
- Drawing blood for an allergy test
- A variety of allergy medications
As an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, you can be sure that your pet receives the very best, safest surgical care. We have the ability to perform a range of procedures including soft tissue and orthopedic. With every surgery, we perform pre-anesthetic blood work and an exam to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Then, during surgery, we take every precaution including:
- Administering an anesthetic protocol tailored to your pet
- An IV catheter that supplies them with warm fluids
- Pain medication to help them have a smooth, pain-free recovery

We have had only stellar care for our dogs at The Village Vets. Dr. Draper is personable, thorough, caring, and easy to communicate with. And our dog, Hank, loves them! We wouldn’t dream of going to any other vet!

The Village Vets has been there for my entire family for 2 decades (including my sisters and parents). They come to my home if necessary. Dr. Will even flew to North Carolina with my parents to pick up their puppy! They are family to us.

More Than Medicine.
Dr. Draper and Dr. Tyler (married since 1993) founded our animal hospital to be a haven for the Atlanta pet community. Forming relationships with our clients and patients is a top priority.
