- Dental Care
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth.  Life expectancy has been shown to increase 3-5 years with routine dental cleaning.  Modern and safe ultrasonic and hand scaling should be used to clean each tooth thoroughly, above and below the gum line.  As part of this dental care, your next Mt Pleasant animal hospital should do a complete oral and neck exam, chart each tooth for any problems and then polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to tartar buildup.  A barrier sealant should also be applied to the teeth and gums to help slow plaque and tartar buildup.  Digital dental radiography should be available to diagnose hidden problems along with advanced dental surgery to treat them.  Homecare dental supplies and recommend routine dental hygiene should be available.

- Surgery
General surgery needs to be one of the Mt Pleasant SC vet clinic services provided to include spays, neuters, growth removals, hernia repairs, hematoma repairs and other.  ECG and comprehensive blood testing, oxygen saturation monitors and intensive post-operative surgery care need to be part of this service.

- Ultrasound
This non-invasive, state of the art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs, along with pregnancy exams is a staple of a good practice and should be offered.  Cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram) is a growing tool to evaluate and monitor heart disease in our pets allowing them to live longer, happier lives.

- Radiology
Radiology (X-ray) is a must as it assists Mt Pleasant veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems.

- Emergency and Critical Care
In any emergency, seconds count.  The Mt Pleasant veterinary staff must be equipped to administer the ABC’s of basic life support – Airway, Breathing and Circulation/Cardiac compressions.  IV catheterization and heart monitoring and pain medication administration while the pet is being triaged are essential.  If emergency care is not offered outside regular business hours, immediate and easy referral to a local, fully staffed Mt Pleasant veterinary emergency center is mandatory.

- Nutritional Counseling
Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balance diet.  A Fit-For-Life Weight Management certified animal hospital staff is important to help you choose the right veterinary diet to keep your pet happy, healthy and active.  Pet nutrition has become so advanced, that there are even preventive diets such as breed specific and Early Care diets.

- Pain Management
Mt Pleasant veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people.  Recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.  Whether it is surgical pain or chronic osteoarthritis pain, protocols to keep your pet happy and comfortable must be offered.  Multimodal approach to pain management through specialty diets, physical therapy, veterinary medicines and NSAID therapies should be considered.

- Microchip Installation
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. Mt Pleasant SC is in a hurricane prone area. A microchip can save your pet from homelessness if disaster strikes and this service should be offered.

- Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy
Physical therapy and rehabilitation has long been known to speed and strengthen healing for people after injuries or surgery.  Although this service is not a must have, a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner on the Mt Pleasant veterinary staff you select is a real bonus. A rehabilitation plan for your pet, whether it is for complete healing or for lifelong management of a specific problem, can be constructed.

- Veterinary Products
A wide range of high quality veterinary drugs, including heartworm and flea control with mailing service should be offered.
