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.

DIAGNOSTICS & TESTING

Your pet will be thoroughly diagnosed with the most advanced medical techniques available to us. We have access to the best diagnostic tools on the market to make sure the animal is properly checked out from head to toe. Weddington Animal Hospital uses digital radiology techniques and our in-house laboratory is designed to provide our veterinarians with the quickest test results possible. If necessary, we’re able to send medical samples out if further testing and diagnostics are required.

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!
