Yearly Physical Examination & Pet Vaccinations

We allow ample appointment time to discuss your concerns with our doctors and to provide your pet with a comprehensive exam.
Consultation with Board Certified Specialists

The placement of a small identification chip under the skin has become popular since many pets were lost following Hurricane Katrina. Our state makes it mandatory for animals to be scanned in our shelters and subsequently returned to their owners. Most veterinary hospitals routinely scan found pets. Implanting the chip is a simple procedure. Any one of our team members will be glad to answer any questions.
Good oral health for your pet can result in a longer and happier life! During your pet's yearly physical examination, your veterinarian will examine your pet’s mouth for any dental issues. At our animal hospital we offer a myriad of dental services, including dental radiographs, oral and dental exams, cleaning, polishing, and extractions. We also carry oral health care products including toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental chews for your pet's at-home dental care. Periodontal disease can lead to bad breath, difficulty chewing, and even heart and other health problems. Feel free to call us at any time to set up an appointment for an oral examination.

We provide both in-house and outside laboratory services, and usually provide results within 24 hours.
We offer emergency services during normal working hours. If your pet is in need of emergency care after hours, please call one of the following emergency clinics: Animal Emergency Hospital of the Strand at (843) 445-9797 or Animal Emergency and Trauma Hospital of Wilmington at (910) 791-7387.
Pet Surgery Services
We offer a wide range of surgical procedures, using some of the safest anesthetic and sedation options available. For added safety, any pet undergoing surgery is monitored with pulse oximetry and/or ECG. Our experienced staff will closely monitor your pet during surgery and the recovery phase. Perioperative pain control is given to all animals undergoing surgery and is included in the cost. Pets having routine procedures performed will usually go home the same day.
Radiology helps our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems. Our veterinarians use radiology as a guide in diagnosing any possible underlying conditions.
Ultrasound is a non-invasive, painless technique that uses sound waves to examine specific organs. We also have an ultrasound specialist that works with our hospital to further evaluate your pet's condition.
Laser therapy is a surgery free, non-invasive treatment to reduce pain and inflammation and speed healing without medication.
The goal of acupuncture is to help promote healing in your pet's body. Please consult with one of our certified veterinarians to see if this treatment option is for your pet.
