Sick Care

Families usually suffer along in silence with their pet when the animal isn’t feeling quite right. However, by bringing him or her to Weddington Animal Hospital you’ll be providing it with the best animal healthcare available in North Carolina. We are fully equipped and trained to take care of any type of medical situation that may arise and to make your pet feel as comfortable as possible while treating your long-time friend. We specialize in all facets of internal medicine including:

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

BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE

It’s quite possible your pet may be acting differently due to a behavioral problem rather than a physical one. Animals often suffer from behavioral issues such as separation anxiety, obsessive disorders, and excessive excitability. When pets show the symptoms of behavioral difficulties they’re treated by a trained animal behaviourist to help get to the root of the problem. After spending some quality time with the animal the behaviourist will then be able to solve any issues by creating a unique treatment plan designed specifically for your pet.

END OF LIFE CARE

Unfortunately, the time will ultimately come when your family and pet will have to part ways. The tears will flow as you say your goodbyes, but you’ll be given the peace of mind knowing your dearest friend will be taken care of with love and dignity. Your pet’s comfort is our main concern at this time of sorrow and we’ll work closely with you when making arrangements for his or her remains.

PREVENTATIVE CARE

One of the most effective ways to stay as healthy as possible is to make sure you’re regularly on the receiving end of medicals, exams and preventative tests. The same thing goes for animals. They’re treated just like family members at Weddington Animal Hospital and will be given regular check-ups to make sure they’re always in good health. We focus a good deal on preventative services as they’re a big part of our overall healthcare plan. Some of the many services we offer include:

  •     Comprehensive physical exam
  •     Oral exam
  •     Internal parasite testing
  •     Heartworm and flea control
  •     Immunizations
  •     Spay and Neuter
  •     Specialized blood tests for all stages of life
  •     Nutritional counseling
  •     Microchipping
  •     Medicated baths
  •     Nail trimming and ear cleaning

MICROCHIPPING

With the use of high-tech microchips, the fear of losing your pet will be greatly alleviated. At Weddington Animal hospital we utilize the most up-to-date microchipping products available to make sure your family and pet are never separated. If your pet does manage to find the way off of your property you’ll be quickly reunited due to this helpful technology.

If you happen to come across a microchipped pet please pay an online visit to petmicrochiplookup.org.

SURGICAL CARE

The veterinary surgical team at Weddington Animal Hospital has access to the most advanced techniques possible when it comes to looking after your pet. This guarantees the best medical care and expertise are available to the animal at all times. Your pet will receive the love and caring it deserves before, during and after all procedures. We carefully screen all pets before operations to make sure anaesthesia is administered for each animal’s specific needs. Your pet will also be kept as comfortable as possible with our popular heated surgical tables.

Our surgical services include:

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

Once the operation is over we’ll evaluate your pet and then customize a healthcare plan for his or her specific recuperative needs. Your pet may need to stay overnight for additional monitoring, but will be back with its loving family as quickly as possible.

DENTAL CARE

It’s a well-known fact that an animal’s good oral health has a great deal to do with its overall health. This is why your pet’s teeth and gums should never be overlooked when it comes to proper healthcare. It may be hard to believe, but four out of every five dogs suffer from gum disease before they reach their third birthday and the pain human’s feel from cavities can also be experienced by cats. At Weddington Animal Hospital we make sure your pet’s oral health is taken care of with the best and most up-to-date dental methods available.

Ultrasonic equipment is used to make sure the animal’s teeth are safely and properly cleaned above and below the all-important gum line. We help reduce and fight plaque by polishing your pet’s teeth to a smooth, shiny finish. We then top it all off by administering a fluoride treatment to reduce sensitivity while hardening the enamel. Digital radiography is enlisted to help locate any deep-hidden dental problems and we also offer advanced oral care including braces, caps, and root canals.

When necessary, we quickly send samples out if additional testing is needed.

Some of the diagnostic medical tools we use 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!
