Sick Care

When your pet’s not feeling well it’s just natural to be concerned for his or her healthcare. But the both of you should be back to your normal energetic selves in no time after your companion receives the best available veterinary care in the Charlotte area. At Weddington Animal Hospital in Waverly, we provide the most loving care possible for all our client’s pets. Our goal is to get your pet as healthy as can be and keep him or her that way for as long as conceivable. We make sure all animals receive the proper immunization and wellness care they need to live a long and healthy life by your side. Our location is fully equipped to solve all health issues imaginable and to effectively take care of any pain your pet may be suffering.

We thoroughly cover all aspects of internal medicine including:

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

BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE

When your pet begins to act abnormally it doesn’t necessarily mean he or she is suffering from a physical problem. It could in fact be a behavioral issue. Pets can often be affected by things such as obsessive disorders, excessive excitability, and separation anxiety. If we feel the animal is showing symptoms of these afflictions we’ll bring in a trained animal behaviorist to help find the origin of the problem. The issue can then be quickly resolved by a personalized program which will be developed specifically for your pet.

END OF LIFE CARE

When it’s time for your pet to prepare for its new home in the sky we’ll make sure he or she is treated with all the comfort and love possible. All pets are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve when it’s time to bid them farewell. We’ll help you get through this highly-emotional stage and our caring family of trained professionals will be sure to follow your wishes regarding your beloved pet’s remains.

MICROCHIPPING

One of the most effective ways to make sure your pet never leaves your side by getting lost is to utilize the modern microchipping techniques that are available today.

It keeps thousands of families and their pets united in Waverly and all over the Charlotte area. We use the latest microchip products on the market to make sure your pet will be found as quickly as possible if he or she happens to stray from home.

Sometimes surgery is needed to bring your pet back to optimum health. At Weddington Animal Hospital our surgeons are trained in the latest and most effective animal-surgery techniques and have access to the most modern equipment in the field. This means your pet will be taken care of by the loving hands of our veterinary family and will receive expert medical attention. A board-certified surgeon is also ready to help your animal if needed. Your pet will be professionally screened prior to surgery and anaesthesia will be specifically administered for his or her unique condition. Also, our surgical tables are heated for added comfort and your pet will receive the loving care needed following the operation.

  • Surgical services include:
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Wound/Laceration care

If your pet needs further monitoring following surgery we may keep him or her overnight at the hospital to make sure of a rapid recovery. A unique health and wellness program will be created specifically for the animals’ needs while recovering and you’ll be able to take him or her home as soon as possible.

DENTAL CARE

When it comes to your pet’s overall health and well-being it’s important to factor in their oral health since this makes up a big part of it. Taking care of an animal’s dental needs are a specialty at Weddington Animal Hospital. If their teeth and gums aren’t properly taken care of there’s a good chance your pet dog could suffer from gum disease before he or she turns three years old. In addition, you may not know that your pet cat experiences the same pain from a cavity as you do.

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 and also offer advanced dental treatments including root canals, caps, and braces.

DIAGNOSTICS

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.

Some of the diagnostic methods we implement include:

  •     CBC (Complete Blood Count)
  •     Chemistry Panel
  •     Urinalysis
  •     Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
  •     Heartworm Testing
  •     Feline Leukemia/Feline Aids Testing
  •     Intestinal Parasite Screening
  •     Fluid and Tissue Cytology
  •     Ear and Skin Cytology
  •     Fungal Cultures

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!
