Vet Clinic at Waverly Place Charlotte - Weddington Animal Hospital


Our annual or semi-annual preventative examinations allow one-on-one time with our staff to answer any questions you may have about your pet. We take this time to ensure your pets are healthy by performing screening tests, addressing any concerns, and boostering any vaccinations needed. These screening examinations allow us to identify any problem areas (such as dental disease) and hopefully address them before they become serious health issues.

Regular medical check-ups and tests are highly recommended for all pets as this is one of the best ways to ensure they remain as healthy as can be. We treat them just like the loving family members they are when it comes to our wellness programs and preventative care procedures.

Vet Clinic at Wavery Charlotte - Weddington Animal Hospital


The best way to take care of a pet’s oral health is to be sure their teeth and gums are cleaned regularly with the best techniques available. We use ultrasonic cleaning methods to get below and above the gum lines of their teeth to keep them problem free. We also polish their teeth to a smooth and healthy finish as a way to combat plaque and solidify and strengthen the tooth enamel. Your pet’s teeth are then effectively desensitized with a fluoride treatment. We use digital radiographs to make sure we don’t miss any potential problems.


The latest state-of-the-art diagnostic tools are often needed to make sure nothing is overlooked during a physical examination and that’s why we use them as Weddington Animal Hospital. Your pet will be diagnosed with all the bells and whistles available before being given a clean bill of health. We are equipped with several types of digital radiology methods and have a laboratory on location to help speed up test results and necessary treatments.

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!
