We took our german shepherd here this week and I was BEYOND impressed! I love how interactive Dr. Kahuda was with my boy. We brought him in for a second opinion on a skin issue we just weren’t getting help or answers from our other vet. Within 24 hours, his skin has completely changed. We will be long-term patients at Charleston Harbor Veterinarians – thank you Dr. Kahuda!!
What wonderful customer and pet care! I was made a cup of coffee this morning which I thoroughly enjoyed while Anna was being given a thorough exam. The office environment is extremely homey and inviting to all ages. Dr. Blackwood explained all aspects of Anna’s condition and treatment and went above and beyond to make sure all options available for her care were explained. What a wonderful team of assistants as well. I feel very confident we received the very best care by a veterinarian and staff available.
Drs. Blackwood and Kahuda have been treating my animals (currently 4 dogs and 4 cats) for several years. Let me tell you, they are THE best!! Their new clinic is absolutely awesome and so well thought out. My furkids don’t even realize they’re at the vet….no “white coat” anxiety at all with my dogs. One of them…as soon as his paws hit the ground he starts to tug and drag me behind because he can’t wait to get inside to see the Docs and staff!! I could go on and on about how great CHV is, but you get my drift….
We have had such a good experience here with Dr. Kahuda and the staff! I love how honest and open they are about what they do and their procedures. And it’s so great that they get the pets’ human siblings involved. I am spreading the word about you all!
We love CHV & Dr. Kahuda! A few weeks ago we brought our three cats in for their annual check-up & shots. It was the most reasonably priced visit I’ve ever had with three furballs! The cats enjoyed the “cat only” exam room, especially our cat who normally freaks during other vet visits. Dr. Kahuda was so flexible with his slight moodiness. Our other two were very calm & one was even purring during his shots (Dr. Kahuda is one of five people he isn’t afraid to see). CHV is so worth the drive from Goose Creek; all three boys will be back next year! BTW- if you are on the fence about making an appointment, I suggest asking for a tour. The office layout & mindset is the most owner and pet friendly I’ve ever seen… & I have seen several!
Highly recommend! The location is perfect for downtown residents, the building is warm, inviting, and comfortable for both animals and humans, and it is affordable. Staff is very responsive to both email and phone calls. They answered all questions I had before the scheduled meet and greet for Scout. Dr. Kahuda and Jordan are wonderful. They let Scout set the tone for the meet and greet and Dr. Kahuda asked all the right questions. They were able to schedule Scout’s yearly exam later that same week. Scout can be a bit of an odd pup, and they embraced her quirky personality. Thank you both so much! I don’t think Scout realized she was at a vet appointment.”
After our first visit today, we won’t be going anywhere else for vet appointments. Their passion for animals is beyond evident; my boy Jack is a very fearful dog in general, let alone at the vet, and everyone went out of their way to make sure he felt comfortable and had a positive experience. We are both beyond grateful!”
Great practice! Dr.Kahuda is a very caring vet. She took care of my other dog for 11 years and wasn’t afraid to refer him to a specialist when Eclair got liver cancer. Together they gave me three more beautiful years with him. She showed true compassion when I had to let him go. I now have another dog and she is Lucy’s doctor. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Her partner in the practice, Dr. Blackwood, I know and can also recommend highly. Go to them, you won’t be disappointed!”
Had a dreaded vet appointment with Murphy this morning. I was stressed about the discomfort it would cause him, having to take my son (4) with me, and let’s face it- the cost. I decided to try Charleston Harbor Veterinarians on Rutledge Ave. The office is beautiful and open- no closed doors where doggies get anxious and can’t see who’s coming in. The staff is incredibly friendly, and they didn’t leave My son out of the process. Murphy was relaxed and cooperative. The checkout is done in the exam room, so you’re not struggling in the waiting area. Both boys got a prize, and best of all, the pricing was on point. Can’t say enough about this place and the positive experience we had. If you love your pets, you’ll try it too.”
Our cat is terrible. A little cute spawn of satan. This is by far the best experience I have ever had at a vet. Dr. Kahuda not only treated Mimo like she was her own but took the time to let her calm down before her exam/shots. During so she sat on the floor for the whole process so little satan didn’t feel threatened. All I can say is wow and thanks!”
Fabulous! I always have to bring my 2 little humans with me for our pet visits and with previous vets, it was obvious this annoyed them. Not this crew…they took excellent care of my beloved boxer, Maggie and my 2 boys in a beautiful space with great access and parking. In addition, they were up front about all charges, reasonably priced, extraordinarily caring and knowledgeable. I’m in!”
My first visit with my cat, Amy, went very well. I loved the atmosphere and Amy loved the cat tree. It was nice that Dr. Kahuda got down on the floor with Amy to do her exam and blood work so Amy would feel more comfortable then being on the table. I would recommend CHV to other pet owners looking for an experience that is as comfortable as an examine would be in your own home. We really felt welcome and comfortable.”
Just wanted to put in a good word for the new Charleston Harbor Vet on Rutledge and cross-town. We took our foster dog there yesterday, and were very impressed. The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating, the facilities and technology were very state-of-the art, and they were very reasonably priced. We will be transferring our dog and cat to this vet ASAP, and will continue to take our foster dogs here. Bonus – we can walk from our house”
This place is awesome…the staff, the facilities, and the technology! They were attentive and kept me informed on everything. In the days following my visit, I even received 2 emails asking how my dog was doing and when I emailed a question to them it was responded to promptly!”
