Nutrition plays a critical role in your pet’s overall health and well-being. It can be overwhelming trying to find the right diet for your pet with the availability of so many nutritionally complete commercial diets. Your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level and specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Our animal clinic can help you calculate the number of calories your pet needs to maintain a healthy weight and suggest the best diet for you to feed.
You and your pet will benefit from the in-house pharmacy we have at our animal hospital. We maintain a large inventory of veterinary pharmaceutical products and medications, including flea, tick, and heartworm preventive products. You can rely on us whether your pet requires medication for a chronic medical condition or needs short-term medication while recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery. When you purchase medications from our animal hospital pharmacy in Charlotte, NC, you can rest assured that your pet’s medications were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under optimal conditions. Our trained veterinary services staff will fill your prescriptions with care as well as attention to detail and your pet’s specific needs. We can provide you with accurate information about your pet’s medications, including proper dosing information, and to alert you to any potential drug side effects or interactions.
Our animal hospital has an online pharmacy specifically for our clients, VetSource, that you may access from our website under the “Shopping” tab. (You must have your pet registered on our website using the email we have in our system for you).We make every attempt possible to provide our clients the convenience of a well stocked and quality controlled pharmacy, and we stand behind every product that we dispense.
Our animal clinic has the Abaxis blood chemistry analyzer and CBC analyzer in-house. This way we can quickly assess your pet’s medical condition or track his or her progress during treatment.
Your pet’s behavior affects every interaction you have with him or her on a daily basis. When a pet has a behavior problem, the consequences are far-reaching. In extreme situations, a serious behavior problem can lead to euthanasia or surrendering a pet to a shelter.
Pets can have a wide variety of behavioral issues, from simple housetraining problems to severe anxiety and aggression issues. Our animal clinic staff is well qualified and experienced in diagnosing and addressing behavior problems with an approach that combines skills from veterinary clinical medicine, behavioral medicine, and pet training. We can evaluate your pet for medical problems that mimic behavioral problems and help you with medical treatments and behavioral training for your pet.
