Regular professional cleaning is important to maintain your
pet's teeth and general health. We use modern and safe ultrasound
to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line.
Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous
tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. We employ
the safest anesthetic protocols to minimize the risks.

Hyperthyroidism is recognized as the most common endocrine
disorder of cats. Radioactive Iodine is used by a single injection
to cure this disease in 98% of cats. No anesthesia is required
for this treatment and no side effects are associated with
this therapy. We literally wrote the book for this in South
Carolina! As the first in the state to provide this life saving
procedure, we have got it down to a science. See our webpage

Lasers are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional
surgery. Lasers replace scalpels in many procedures, and are
useful for a wide range of conditions, such as cyst, tumor,
and wart removal, and can even be used in feline declaw surgeries.
Laser procedures result in less pain; less bleeding and less
swelling. They reduce risk of infection and result in less
post-operative discomfort. Our doctors have a great deal of
time and training in the use of surgical lasers. Dr. Senf
has been invited to lecture as well as teach laser surgery
to veterinarians from throughout the southeastern US.
Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from
a balanced diet. Our trained and certified staff is available
to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him
or her happy, healthy and active.
Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same
circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating
pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. Our veterinarians
have special training to help you help your pet. We feel that
surgical pain management, when done correctly, will significantly
improve surgical recovery. Chronic pain is also a very real
problem for dogs and cats. It is also our duty to our pets
to keep them as pain free as we can.
Radiology - or X-rays - help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal,
cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive
and urinary systems. We employ state of the art radiographic
techniques to get the answers you need for your pets' well
being. By using Advance Digital Images for our x-rays, we
are able to see your pets problems better - thereby
improving our ability to diagnose and treat their problems
Sometimes conditions arise that require veterinarians with
specialized training. Our staff utilizes certified veterinary
cardiologists, dermatologists, oncologists, neurologists,
ophthalmologists, and pathologists when necessary to get the
answers we need. See our Doctors
