Sick Care

It’s heartbreaking for families to see their pets suffer and they naturally want to see their loving companion at optimum health as quickly as can be. Our staff is fully trained and equipped to handle any type of medical situation that may occur and to make your pet feel right at home while being treated. Our animal hospital specializes in all areas of internal animal medicine including:

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

Behavioral Medicine

On some occasions, a pet may simply be acting abnormally because it’s suffering from a behavioral affliction and not a physical ailment. It’s not unusual for pets to show signs of things such as excessive excitability, separation anxiety, and/or obsessive disorders. If your pet shows signs of suffering from a behavioral problem we’ll be able to call in a trained animal behaviorist to treat him/her and find out what’s causing it. The behaviorist will be able to diagnose the root of the issue and come up with a personalized solution to rectify it by spending some quality time with your pet.

End of Life Care

It’s sad to say, but the lives of our beloved pets don’t go on forever. There’s going to come a time when it’s you’ll have to kiss your pet goodbye for the last time. When this time comes, you’ll be glad to know that the Weddington Animal Hospital will be able to provide the passionate and comfortable end of life care your pet deserves. This emotional time will be treated with dignity and we’ll be sure to honor all requests regarding arrangements for your companion’s remains.

PREVENTATIVE CARE

Effective preventative medical care is one of the best methods of keeping your pet as healthy as possible. This means bringing it in for regular exams, preventative procedures and medicals etc. A regular check-up can often catch any medical problems at an early stage before they have a chance to worsen. Our team of veterinarians focuses a great deal of time and energy on preventative healthcare to make sure your pet is in top condition. Some of the many preventative services we provide include:

  •     Comprehensive physical exam

Microchipping

Unfortunately, losing a pet can sometimes happen due to unforeseen circumstances. However, you can reduce the chances of this occurring by utilizing state-of-the-art microchip technology. We deal with the most up-to-date microchipping products on the market to make sure the chances of your family pet disappearing are slim and none. If your pet should happen to wander off your property he/she won’t be missing for long due to this wonderful tracking technology.

If you should happen to find a microchipped pet please visit petmicrochiplookup.org to find out what to do.

SURGICAL CARE

Weddington Animal Hospital is ideal for pet surgery since we have access to the most advanced medical techniques available. Our specially-trained animal surgeons will be able to provide your pet with the best medical care and expertise available. The staff will make sure your pet is as comfortable as can be at all times before, during and following all surgical procedures. All pets are carefully diagnosed and screened before surgery to make sure they receive the exact type and amount of anesthesia required for their specific medical condition. Our heated surgical tables are also designed with your pet’s comfort in mind.
Our surgical services include:

  • Spay and Neuter
  • Wound/Laceration care
  • Tumor removal
  • A variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries

When your pet comes out of surgery we will evaluate him/her and design a customized healthcare plan for their specific recuperative needs. On some occasions, we may ask that your pet remains with us overnight for further monitoring.

DENTAL CARE

For an animal to be in good overall health it must also be blessed with excellent oral health. Therefore, the proper teeth and gum care of all pets are very important. This area of healthcare shouldn’t be overlooked and this is why we also specialize in animal dental care at Weddington Animal Hospital. It’s interesting to note that eight out of 10 dogs have to deal with gum disease by the time they reach three years old. In addition, some types of animals such as cats can feel cavity-pain the same way humans do. We’re able to properly take care of your pet’s oral health though by using the newest and most effective dental procedures in the industry.

We utilize special ultrasonic equipment to safely treat the gums and teeth both above and below the animal’s gum line. We’ll also help fight off and reduce plaque by polishing your pet’s teeth and reduce sensitivity by hardening tooth enamel with a fluoride treatment. Deep-hidden oral health problems can be spotted early with the use of digital radiography and we provide advanced dental care including root canals, caps, and braces etc.

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!
