I tell people about this place all the time. I do let them know to plan on waiting a while if your pet needs to see the vet. This place sometimes has a very high volume of patients so plan on it taking a couple hours if the place is packed and your animal needs to see the vet. I haven't ever used the spay/neuter services here since I took my dog to the Charleston Animal Society for hers, but my experience there was similar to the one described by another review here. I hate to break it to those people but that is how low cost clinics work. You drop off in the morning by a certain time and pick up (usually same afternoon) by a certain time. You pay less but it takes some of your time. If you can't give up the time then give up the money and pay the full price somewhere else. I still come here for my heartworm preventative and will have my dogs regular vaccinations done here this year as well. I always get in and out really quick when I pick up medicine.I almost forgot but I have one other experience of this place. I tamed one of the stray cats enough to be able to pet him and even pick him up. He was already fixed from going through a feral cat program at ASPCA and I really wanted to find him a home, but he had a cold. My husband helped me get him into our cat carrier and I took him in. I decided to have him tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, just to be safe. He was not used to other people but with a little convincing the staff agreed to teach me how to hold him properly so they could draw his blood for the tests. He came back positive for FIV. I could not release him outside and I also could not bring him in with our 3 healthy cats. I made the heartbreaking decision to have him put to sleep. They asked me to pay for the testing and then we went in a private room. There was no charge for putting him down and the vet and staff were all extremely supportive.

There are Angels working here! My baby, Cherish Pearle Williams was very sick. She wouldn't have made it through the night if not for Dr. Calley and her staff. Everyone was so helpful and understanding. They stayed after hours fighting to save her life. When me and my mom brought her into the Wellness Clinic she was so weak she couldn't even hold her head up. I was shocked how fast it had all changed. A few days ago she was playing, running and eating, just living a great life. We couldn't keep her still. She's always been very active with a big appetite. I was scared! I know if wasn't for Dr. Calley and her staff my little girl wouldn't be here today. There are no words to describe how grateful me and my family are to them. They are Angels in disguise. They all went above and beyond for her and brought her back to us. She has made a remarkable recovery in just one week. If you could see her now you wouldn't know we almost lost her just one week ago. Cherish is an 11 year old Chihuahua. She had pyometra which is an infection in the uterus. It is deadly and moves very fast. I'm just so thankful Dr. Calley moves faster. Thank God for her. Everything could have turned out so much different if not for her. Now my family will have a wonderful holiday season because my baby Cherish is with us for many more years to come. Please have your animals spayed. That could have prevented what happened to my family. I never knew it was so important. God Bless the Lowcountry Pet Wellness Clinic. We are FOREVER GRATEFUL!!

This clinic is a life saver. They are very good at what they do but will put you in your place if you don't care for your animals. This is the best place to bring your little ones if you love them... Any bad reviews would be considered rude and not worth reading. These people saved a feral cat for me that no one else would. He is now my huge house cat and very loving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr .Calley for all the hours you worked on my cat and the other 2 cats and 4 dogs I have!!!!! You are the best in South Carolina and your fee's don't hurt anyone's budget! Thank you for caring so much.

Best Veterinary I have been going to them with my kids for over 20 years. Would not take them anywhere else.
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
