Charleston Harbor Veterinarians is bringing convenient veterinary care to Charleston.  When things aren’t convenient we tend to put them off.  It’s human nature.  Our pets deserve better though and since we can’t change human nature, we focus on making your visit to the vet as convenient as possible to help them get the health care they need.

There are a variety of areas we seek to make your visit more convenient and we’ll continue to find new ways to make sure you never think of going to the vet as a hassle.


There arguably isn’t a more convenient location in downtown Charleston than 280 Rutledge Ave where you’ll find Charleston Harbor Veterinarians.  Easy access from all directions and a private on-site parking lot take away many of your concerns abouIMG_4093t going downtown whether you live in Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, North Charleston, Goose Creek, Summerville, James Island or elsewhere. We’re also proud to be located in the Cannonborough/Elliotborough Neighborhood and in close proximity to many of the other great downtown Charleston neighborhoods such as Wagener Terrace, Hampton Park, Radcliffeborough, Wraggborough, Upper King and more. We know our clients will enjoy the walkable access to other great businesses and restaurants.

The Drop-Off program

On those days when you know your pet needs to see a doctor but your day is jam-packed – check out our drop-off program.  Just fill out our medical drop-off form, pull into the parking lot, and one of our team members will pick up your pet ‘curb-side’!   Our doctors will perform a full examination and call, email, or even FaceTime you to discuss recommendations and to work with you to create a treatment plan for your pet.

The Waiting Room

Do you cringe when you think about how embarrassed you are by your pet’s ‘waiting room’ behavior?  Or do you try desperately to hide your poor cat’s carrier in a corner away from the growling dog?  The CHV team understands – and has a plan.  Instead of waiting in the waiting room – why not wait in a private exam room?  Our exam rooms are fitted with dutch doors (to eliminate the feeling of isolation and worry that we forgot you!), comfortable seating, a window, and a clean space that doesn’t smell like the vet’s office.  Grab a cup of coffee and relax with your pet…suddenly waiting doesn’t seem so bad!

Checking out

Let’s eliminate the stress of holding the leash, grabbing the wallet, and trying to hear the receptionist over a barking dog…how about checking out in the exam room too where you can focus on discharge instructions and not feel stressed to just get out as quick as possible.

Keeping up with the details

We all have A LOT going on – and unfortunately our pet’s health can get lost in the shuffle.  Our online medical records, appointment requests, and reminder system will help keep you straight!
