SICK CARE

If your pet is not feeling well, our trained staff will take special care to identify why and help make them feel better. Our doctors and technicians will take measures to identify health issues and create an individualized plan of treatment for your pet. Our staff will first obtain a history of the problem, then a physical examination will be performed to help identify why your pet feels sick. Often, additional diagnostics, such as radiographs (X-rays), or blood work may be performed to help evaluate your pet and better understand what is wrong. Our doctors treat each pet like it is their own and are there every step of the way to help your pet feel better.

PREVENTATIVE CARE

At Weddington Animal Hospital, our goal is to help your pet be as healthy as possible through our preventative wellness care. Our veterinarians and trained staff will create an individualized wellness plan that is best for you and your pet’s lifestyle. Our doctors will assess your pet’s overall health, including an entire physical and dental examination, and will ask questions about your pet’s diet and lifestyle. Our veterinarians will make a plan for your pet and may recommend specific vaccinations dependent on your pet’s risk factors. Recommendations to discuss may include heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative, and annual health screenings to ensure your pet is in peak physical and emotional health. We understand that prevention is the best way to decrease your pet’s risk of disease and take steps to identify any potential issues with your pet and have a plan before they arise.

DENTAL CARE

Oral care shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to the overall health and well being of your pet. Proper dental care is very important to an animal and it’s another area we focus on and specialize in at Weddington Animal Hospital. An animal’s teeth and gums need to be properly taken care of to help fight off gum disease. Improper oral care could result in this ailment in your pet dog before he or she reaches three years old and your pet cat may suffer from cavity pain much like a human. Regular cleaning is the answer and really the only way to make sure your pet’s gums and teeth are as healthy as they should be.

DIAGNOSTICS & TESTING

Modern state-of-the-art diagnostic tools are used by our veterinarians when examining your pet to be sure we haven’t overlooked anything. At Weddington Animal Hospital we want to be sure everything is looked over as thoroughly as possible before a clean bill of health is given to your pet. We have access to numerous digital radiology methods in our on-location laboratory to guarantee speedy test results and treatments.

Just switched over to Weddington Animal Hospital a couple months ago… and WOW what a great choice! Everyone there is so friendly and keep you very informed on your furry friend. I feel very confident leaving my dog with Dr. Faulkner! If you are looking for more then just your average vet, WAH is the place to be.

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!
