Sea Island Animal Hospital
This is the best animal hospital I have ever been to! Dr. Horn is exceptional and very thorough and the entire staff was genuine and friendly. The office was clean, smelled great and I loved the coffee they have out front. They are also AAHA accredited which is pretty significant. My very shy dog was happy go lucky the entire visit. SOLD!

Sea Island Animal Hospital
I think Sea Island Animal Hospital is the best! The Vets and staff are exceptional and the hospital is clean and beautiful. Best care in Beaufort by far! Paw plans are super resonable for pets to get all their yearly care too : )

Sea Island Animal Hospital
Everyone is very friendly at Sea Island, but my experience with the veterinarians has been hit and miss. Not all of them are very good at diagnosing illnesses. If you go, I recommend seeing Dr Smith.

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
