Regular Exams Keep South Charlotte Cats & Dogs Well


Regular wellness examinations give us the opportunity to build a solid relationship with you and your pet. We look forward to getting to know you, and routine appointments give us the time to share information about your observations at home and ours in the examining room.

Pets age much faster than people do. At Rea Road, we strongly recommend having your dog or cat examined at least once a year. Older pets may need to visit us every six months because of their age and the health problems that accompany the advancing years.

Your pets cannot tell us what's wrong. Routine blood, urine, and fecal tests can help our veterinarians detect problems that you might not be aware of, and treating them right away can help your pet's life be longer and healthier. Regular nose-to-tail exams allow us to track what is normal for your cat or dog so that we can discover health abnormalities quicker.

Preventive Veterinary Care for Pets

Regular wellness examinations are also important because they give us time to assess which vaccinations and other preventive treatments are right for your pet. Your pet's age and lifestyle are taken into account when we are recommending

  • Vaccines
  • Deworming
  • Dental procedures
  • Heartworm testing and preventive medication
  • Flea and tick prevention

Because we are well acquainted with you and your pet, we can recommend some vaccines that may be needed for travel or boarding. We also will recommend vaccines based on blood titer levels and lifestyle.

The best thing you can do for your pet is to make sure he or she stays healthy. Please schedule a wellness examination for your pet today.

"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
