Puppies & Kittens Get Special Care at Rea Road Animal Hospital

babies

We look forward to seeing your new pet as soon as he or she joins your family. Regular examinations let us get to know your pet not only as his or her veterinarian, but also as a trusted friend. During these early visits, every three to four weeks, we will start to know what is usual for your kitten or puppy. Each exam covers your pet from nose to tail and will also contain advice on when to start important regular immunizations, usually beginning at six to eight weeks of age.

Preventive Veterinary Medicine From the Beginning

Puppies and kittens are vaccinated every three to four weeks until they are about 16 weeks of age. We always tailor vaccines specifically depending on lifestyle and the needs of your pet.

"We are so pleased and blessed to have Dr. Dozier and your clinic. Time and time again, you all and Dr. Dozier especially have been unfailingly kind, considerate and caring beyond most of any care we have experienced at vets. Having bred goldens for over 50 years we have experienced many vet clinics. Dr. Dozier tops them all. He is unhurried, makes one feel like you are his only client in all the world, takes his time, is thorough and careful and you feel you have his 100% undivided attention. No vet in the hundreds we have worked with has been so available, so kind, willing to take his time, as Dr. Dozier. HE IS THE BEST! Certainly the wonderful staff is a reflection, plus we comment all the time that Dr. Dozier seems to have very little turn over. You all must be happy and respected. Bless you all!" - Ann Chase
"We love Dr. Michael!! She has been so wonderful going down the path with us on our elderly yellow Lab, Bailey Baroo. She has worked with us to find the right blend of food, medicine and exercise to give us more years with him and we appreciate that when she hears hoof beats she thinks horses, not zebras! Everyone at RRAH is wonderful, but Dr. Michael is extra special!" -Lesli An Orio
"Rea Road has been our family vet since the day they opened. I would not trust my pets to anyone else." - Michelle Kingston
"Best vets ever in Charlotte! They have taken such amazing care of my kids and of me, their fretting mom. I wouldn't trust anyone else." - Pamela Shaw
"Rea Road has the most caring staff. Dr. Dozier is truly wonderful! We have taken our babies there for years and they truly love them as much as we do." - Mattie Collins-Walker
"Very simply, we love Rea Road Animal Hospital. Knowledgeable, kind and compassionate!" - Heather Theriault
"Rea Road Animal Hospital has been our vet since we moved to Charlotte 9 years ago. Our dog, Bandit, will be 18 years old in September and we attribute his longevity to the doctors and especially the staff at this establishment. We have recommended the facility to our friends and neighbors and they have used the hospital for vet services, boarding, grooming and a place to love their pets." - Stephen & Heidi Kramer
