Charleston Harbor Veterinarians was created and designed as a transparent veterinary clinic.   With an open concept in mind, our model was created to allow you as much or as little involvement in your pet’s healthcare as you desire.

No Hidden Procedures

We know it is sometimes worrisome to allow your pet to be taken to the back treatment area for diagnostics without knowing what is going on back there.  We will make it our goal to keep your pet with you and perform as many procedures in the exam room as possible.  If your pet does need to be taken to the special procedures area – you will find you can watch each step of the process through large windows from the hallway. You will even be able to catch glimpses of the operating room and view full dental surgeries.

Make Informed Decisions

Laboratory diagnostics and testing can be confusing and their value is not fully appreciated when completed in a back of the hospital lab – or when the results are not available for days. At CHV you will be able to view the microscopic findings on a tablet in the exam room with your doctor in real-time. Your pet’s blood work will also almost entirely be run in-house with results that day – and often times during the visit.  You will be able to ask questions and make informed decisions while meeting with your doctor without waiting days for results or playing phone tag.

Clear Communication

The doctors at CHV also know the value of effective communication. We are glad to email, text, phone, Facetime, Skype, or meet in person to discuss your pet’s health plan.  With the many ways to communicate we promise to connect with you on your level. Part of the connection form lets you tell us how to reach you – and provides you with various methods of contact for us. Drs. Blackwood and Kahuda want you to have all the information you need so that as a team we can keep your pet healthy and comfortable.charleston mutt harbor vet
