Advanced Veterinary Care in Charlotte, NC

When it comes to helping your pet live the healthiest life possible, the type of veterinary care they receive can make all the difference. At Charlotte Companion Animal Hospital, we’re proud to provide quality, compassionate, advanced veterinary care to meet the needs of both patients and their families.

What is Advanced Care?

At Charlotte Companion Animal Hospital, we believe that advanced vet care involves patient and client care. We strive to go above and beyond to provide thorough diagnostic tools and advanced treatment options along with the most compassionate, personal pet parent service possible. 

Advanced pet vet care can include specialized laboratory tests, advanced imaging, ultrasonography, and consultations or referrals with specialists when needed. It provides more information to the clinician and medical team, enables us to optimize further diagnostics or treatment plans better, and practice better medicine. Advanced vet care for clients should offer a reliable team-based approach, compassionate communication, timely relaying of results, a support system, and a calming environment.

What Should Pet Owners Look Out for Before Bringing Their Pets in for a Sick Visit?

  • Behavior
  • Appetite
  • Urination
  • Defecation
  • Litterbox use
  • Activity
  • Weight

What Preventive Care Measures Can Owners Take to Keep Their Pet Healthy?

As veterinary professionals in Charlotte, NC, we understand that common health problems and preventative measures depend on the species, breed, sex, and age of the pet. This will differ for each pet individually. This is why thorough and advanced pet and client care is essential to practicing the best medicine possible. It allows us to examine each pet (and their family) individually and thoughtfully, then curate and discuss a diagnostic treatment plan.

For younger pets, health problems may be less frequent and transient. The proactive intervention in these cases usually provides the best success. Routine annual exams and recommended diagnostics aid, as well as monitoring more chronic or age-related diseases.

For older pets, health problems are more commonly related to age-associated diseases, illnesses that need lifelong management or may not be treatable. Again, proactive presentation when problems are seen allows for early investigation, diagnosis, and treatment.

Our animal hospital wants to keep your pet as healthy as possible, regardless of their age, breed, or species; keep these tips in mind:

  • Maintain good dental health
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Maintain healthy joints 

What Can Pet Owners Expect During Their Visit?

Initially, advanced pet care visits won’t be treated differently from ordinary exams. We perform thorough physical examinations on all pets regardless of presentation. Appointments in which advanced care and diagnostics are performed may take longer or require the pet to be dropped off sedation or hospitalization.

The types of screening tests that owners should consider depending on their pet’s species, breed, and age. This is handled on a patient-by-patient basis. Typically, older patients, those predisposed to certain conditions, or previous client experience may help guide recommendations for specific diagnostics or treatments.
