Best of the best!!!!
I absolutely LOVE Dr Faulkner & his staff! They are so sweet & have so much knowledge! Huxley, our 11 week old lab, gets all the attention & love when walking into his appointments! He goes over every aspect of having a puppy & explains the vaccines so you know why your puppy is getting it & the importance!
5 stars does not do my rating justice! A million stars for Dr. Faulkner & his ladies :))

Dr. Faulkner is an excellent doctor. The staff is always pleasant and knowledgeable. The office is always clean. We are very pleased and so is our dog Kaylee Grace!

Sondra Hollins

Dr Walker is awesome! She really takes the time to listen and address all my concerns. I feel like my pets are getting the very BEST care possible with her and Dr Faulkner. Both vets are very well educated and so compassionate and caring. I highly recommend this practice and after having been to several other local practices, I would not go anywhere else

Krafty Kate

Dr. Faulkner and Dr. Walker are absolutely brilliant veterinarians. The staff at WAH are also really nice, efficient, and friendly to work with. We primarily see Dr. Faulkner for our cats and puppy, and he is so patient, kind, and knowledgeable. He takes his time and addresses all of my questions and concerns seriously. Two of my senior cats had to be put down within weeks of each other in October, and Dr. Faulkner was so respectful and compassionate of the whole process. He let me have my cry in the room and took the time to talk to me about grief after. At least one vet is routinely available if I have questions. I would not take my fur babies anywhere else.

Shaileen Patton

Weddington Animal Hospital is absolutely wonderful! We have tried out a few around the area and this is our favorite. Recently our puppy swallowed something she wasn’t supposed to & everyone apart of the hospital took such good care of her. Dr. Faulkner is amazing! He explained everything into such great detail and we were happy to leave her in such great hands. Thank you Weddington Animal Hospital!

We have a wild and crazy shepherd puppy and a 12 year old mixed breed who have visited several times. Dr. Faulkner is amazing at explaining the ear infections or vaccinations. He and his staff are very patient and thorough throughout each visit. 🙂

Debbie Rucker

Dr. Faulkner really took his time and answered all of our questions. As new puppy owners we really appreciated his insight and patience with us.

Dr. Faulkner is extremely considerate of our pets emotional challenges. He is kind and sensitive to her needs. We are extremely grateful for his care of our pet. He always contacts us to check in on her after a visit which is truly appreciated.

David Peeler

Dr. Walker and Dr. Faulkner are amazing! They take such good care of all 3 of my dogs. I would not recommend going anywhere else. Tebow loves Dr. Walker’s acupuncture and it has helped him so much. They are truly compassionate.

Austin Knight

The techs and veterinarians always get on the floor and interact with my dogs. They are kind and compassionate. It seems they really care about my dogs and they make sure I am comfortable and understand their treatment plan.

Andrea Data

I absolutely couldn’t find anything negative to say about Weddington animal hospital even if I tried! Dr. Faulkner and his staff have been nothing short of amazing! They treat your pets as if they’re their own, and want nothing but the absolute best care for them! I highly reccomend them to anyone!

Sara Nickerson

At Weddington Animal Hospital not only do my pets get fantastic healthcare but my family is treated like family. Everyone in the office shows constant kindness and knowledge. They remember you, follow up with you and treat you with respect. Dr. Faulkner is extremely kind and helpful. He is amazing at his job but he knows how to explain things so you understand and offer the real solutions. He also calls you to follow up and check on your pet. He is also sweet to my children and goes above and beyond to help our community. Without hesitation he helped my Girl Scout Daisy Troop finish there journey in animal care. He offered every resource he knew and with his help we finished strong. I have recommended this vet to everyone and will continue to do so! Amazing practice!

Stephanie Godbold

Dr. Walker is amazing and caring. Everyone at the clinic is amazing and kind. I honestly could not have found a better practice for my dogs since moving to Charlotte 7 months ago.
