Animal Hospital Questions

What type of animals do you see?
We see dogs, cats, pocket pets, birds, reptiles and amphibians, pigs, goats, and just about any other pet you can think of!

Do you see emergencies?
We are able to accept daytime emergencies at both locations. Although there may be a wait, we will work in daytime emergencies and surgeries.

What do I do if my pet has an emergency after hours?
Please contact our friends Animal Emergency Hospital of the Strand 843 445 9797.

The doctor I saw last time is working at your other clinic, can they see me there as well?
Yes, both clinics are connected, share the same records, and can accommodate you in the same way.

What measures have you used to ensure the hospitals are safe during covid?
Our staff is able to contact you by phone when it’s time for your appointment, direct you into a disinfected exam room, and will limit your contact with other people until it’s time to check out. We also routinely fog the hospital to limit the spread of germs.

What does an office visit/physical exam include?
This scheduled appointment includes an exam by one of our veterinarians. With an office visit, we can establish a doctor patient relationship which then allows us to prescribe medications, make recommendations, perform surgery if needed, and keep your pet healthy.

Will I be forced to pay an office visit every time my pet needs a vaccine?
No, our hospitals are proud to offer vaccines, testing, bathes, nail trims, and anal glands without seeing a veterinarian or without an appointment. Priority is given to appointments and sick pet exams, but we can generally accommodate your needs quickly.

The veterinarian and staff suggested an AAFCO tested food, vaccines, heartworm and flea prevention, and spaying and neutering our pet. This is different than what our breeder, pet store employee, rescue, or social media groups recommend, who do I believe?
Our veterinarians’ recommendations are based on what they use with their own pets as well as what has been scientifically researched as healthy for your pet. Please know that there is a lot of false information out there that sometimes can be dangerous for your pet. Our staff will help you make the right choice.
