Veterinary Services in Ballantyne
If your pet is not feeling well, our trained staff will take special care to identify why and help make them feel better. Our doctors and technicians will take measures to identify health issues and create an individualized plan of treatment for your pet. Our staff will first obtain a history of the problem, then a physical examination will be performed to help identify why your pet feels sick. Often, additional diagnostics, such as radiographs (X-rays), or blood work may be performed to help evaluate your pet and better understand what is wrong. Our doctors treat each pet like it is their own and are there every step of the way to help your pet feel better.
At Weddington Animal Hospital, our goal is to help your pet be as healthy as possible through our preventative wellness care. Our veterinarians and trained staff will create an individualized wellness plan that is best for you and your pet’s lifestyle. Our doctors will assess your pet’s overall health, including an entire physical and dental examination, and will ask questions about your pet’s diet and lifestyle. Our veterinarians will make a plan for your pet and may recommend specific vaccinations dependent on your pet’s risk factors. Recommendations to discuss may include heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative, and annual health screenings to ensure your pet is in peak physical and emotional health. We understand that prevention is the best way to decrease your pet’s risk of disease and take steps to identify any potential issues with your pet and have a plan before they arise.
If your pet shows any signs of illness while our clinic is closed please contact the Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Matthews at 704-815-3939 or the Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency (CARE) in Charlotte at 704-457-2300.
In some situations, surgery may be required to cure your pet’s ailment. All of our veterinary surgeons are professionally trained in the most effective and up-to-date techniques in the field and have hands-on access to the most modern surgical equipment required. Your pet will receive the best and most loving medical attention and care possible by our veterinary family. In addition, we also have a board-certified surgeon on hand if needed. Your pet will be thoroughly screened before any scheduled surgery and anesthesia will be specifically administered for his or her unique condition. We also provide heated surgical tables to help keep your pet as comfortable as can be at all times and provide him or her with the loving care needed following surgery.
Oral care shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to the overall health and well being of your pet. Proper dental care is very important to an animal and it’s another area we focus on and specialize in at Weddington Animal Hospital. An animal’s teeth and gums need to be properly taken care of to help fight off gum disease. Improper oral care could result in this ailment in your pet dog before he or she reaches three years old and your pet cat may suffer from cavity pain much like a human. Regular cleaning is the answer and really the only way to make sure your pet’s gums and teeth are as healthy as they should be.

We understand that coming to a new place for your pet, especially if they are sick or stressed, can be challenging for them.

Our staff often uses treats, pheromone therapy, and other calming techniques to help your pet feel relaxed. If your pet has a known food allergy or sensitive stomach, we welcome you to bring his/her favorite treats from home or let us know during your visit so we can find an alternative plan.
