Sick Care

  • The health and wellness of your pet is the top priority at Weddington Animal Hospital. Unfortunately, pets sometimes suffer from aches, pains and illnesses just like the rest of us and require the proper medical attention to be nursed back to health. If this is the case, don’t hesitate to pay us a visit at our Ballantyne location for the best animal care in the Charlotte region. We’ll be sure to thoroughly diagnose your family companion and provide the treatment needed to cure what ails him or her. All the animals we take care of are properly immunized to help them continue to enjoy a long, healthy life with their families. Our hospital is equipped with the most modern medical equipment required to treat all types of ailments and to relieve any pain your pet may be in.

    We thoroughly cover all aspects of internal medicine for your pet including:

  •     Cardiology
  •     Ophthalmology
  •     Neurology
  •     Dermatology
  •     Gastroenterology
  •     Oncology
  •     Endocrinology

Behavioral Medicine

As pet owners, we sometimes forget that animals have minds of their own. Because of this, their abnormal actions could be related to a behavioral issue rather than a physical one. Your pet may be displaying signs of common behavioral ailments such as separation anxiety, obsessive disorders and/or excessive excitability. In these situations, we will dig to the root of the problem by having our

trained animal behaviorist spend some quality time with your pet. If he or she is indeed displaying signs of a behavioral issue we’ll be able to design a personalized treatment program specifically for your pet.

 

End of Life Care

If your beloved pet is suffering we realize you’d like to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible when its’ time for them to fall asleep for the last time. Your pet will be treated with respect and dignity if you decide the time has come to kiss goodbye. We’ll make sure he or she is treated with all the love deserved when it’s time to move on. Our loving professionals will help you and your family deal with your loss during this emotional time and will honor your wishes when it comes to taking care of your pet’s remains.

SURGICAL CARE

In some situations, surgery may be required to cure your pet’s ailment. All of our veterinary surgeons are professionally trained in the most effective and up-to-date techniques in the field and have hands-on access to the most modern surgical equipment required. Your pet will receive the best and most loving medical attention and care possible by our veterinary family. In addition, we also have a board-certified surgeon on hand if needed. Your pet will be thoroughly screened before any scheduled surgery and anaesthesia will be specifically administered for his or her unique condition. We also provide heated surgical tables to help keep your pet as comfortable as can be at all times and provide him or her with the loving care needed following surgery.

  • Our Surgical services include:
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Wound/Laceration care
  • Tumor removal
  • A variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries

If an overnight stay for additional monitoring is required following surgery we’ll be sure to take loving care of your pet at the hospital. In addition, we’ll design a personalized health and wellness program for their unique needs while in the recovery period to make sure he or she can rejoin you at home as quickly as possible.

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. We use the most modern ultrasonic cleaning methods available to keep the teeth as clean as can be both above and below the gum line. Your pet’s teeth will also be polished to a smooth, healthy finish to help toughen and solidify the enamel and reduce plaque. A fluoride treatment is then applied to help desensitize the teeth. Digital radiographs are utilized to be sure we haven’t missed anything and we also provide advanced oral care treatments such as root canals, braces and caps.

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!
