All pet owners appreciate the services of a veterinarian from time to time, and especially those who keep 'working dogs' to aid and empower their outdoor sporting pursuits. West Ashley Vet has made a recent transformation from their traditional location into the former home of another outdoors landmark, the Cross Seed Co. building. An Open House was held October 1 for the public to come view the new roomy facility which features separate entrances for canine and cat patients. A brand new surgery center is part of the new West Ashley Vet and other services such as grooming and boarding have been greatly expanded. Multiple physicians are on staff, but it is the skillful Dr. Merrill Irvin that has assisted your humble blogger handle the entire lifespan of one hunting companion, my black lab named Colby who lived 13 years, and now has undertaken the task of looking after my 3-year English Setter named Chester. Dr. Irvin volunteers for surgical duty at the Avian Center as needed, and this jack of all trades is also an accomplished photographer. The Saturday open house was well-attended and a kids fair set up in the parking lot provided freebie treats for their pets, and Jack's Cosmic dogs to eat plus fun raffles. Experience counts when it comes to care of our pets, and I can vouch for the high standards at West Ashley Vet.
