I am the pro-active type and take my dog's health seriously. I didn't feel like this office provided me with the most knowledgeable or cost efficient solutions. I have had more experienced Vets before and I chose to move on.

I have 3 dogs and would take them only to Dr. Henke. He is compassionate, competent and I know that my babies are taken care of. They also offer excellent boarding facilities. The staff is friendly and professional.

I just saw the post from 'Courtney W'
Whew! Is she ever wrong!
She MUST be talking about the guy who had this practice before Dr. Henke. He WAS a schister - and had his license pulled in SC and, I understand, 2 other states previous to that!) We had a BAD, BAD, BAD - AWFUL - experience with him, for sure!
He sold his own herbal concoctions - which were nothing more than placebos; charged an arm and a leg; convinced me to put our dog down - and, as we were saying our 'goodbyes,' came in and told me 'Ah, come on! That's enough. I have other things to do," pushed the syrringe in - and that was that!
I just wanted everyone to see how our experience with Palmetto compared. This is a letter I sent them just this week:

Hey, guys,
This is the first chance I??ve had to write and thank you for the wonderful card Ronda and I received after we had to euthanize Sandy. Even though we no longer lived in Mt. Pleasant; even though we had transferred his records to a new vet here in Charlotte; and even though he was put to sleep in Fredericksburg, VA while we were visiting our son, you still took the time to write that personal note!

Wow! As you know, we have been clients since before you opened (with that 'other guy' I mentioned above) - and in all that time, Ronda and I came to know all of you as marvelous, accomidating, and sincere. This just confirms it!
Thank you so very, very much for your thoughtfulness. As you know, after 14 years as a family member (and Sandy being so very much ??my?? dog), it is a very emotional experience, compounded ?? in our case ?? by being out-of-town.

Molly moped for a few weeks (even though as she knew him, he was always so ??grumpy?? he never wanted to play!) ?? missing Sandy, so, one day when we were back in Charleston (I was doing a wedding on Folly), we stopped at Pet Helpers and adopted a 7 week old Lab-Golden mix who we named ??Gracie?? ?? she??s blonde with golden eyes. She is adorable! We still miss Sandy deeply; but Gracie has found a place in our hearts ?? just as you all have.

Thank you for the wonderful, compassionate care you provide all your clients. Your practice is surely one of a kind. If any of you are ever in Charlotte, please stop by and see me/us.

You all are so special.

Blessings!

Whoever wrote this office is all about the buck, is sadly mistaken. I have 2 white boxers and marred a man with a fawn boxer. One boxer I had since she was a puppy, the other was a rescue. My previous vet spent 6 months and hundereds of dollars trying to find out how to treat what turned out to be a skin allergy. One of the vets made me feel like it was all MY FAULT. My rescue had heartworms and was going to cost over $800 for treatment. A friend recommended Palmetto Veterinary Hospital where she was treated for HALF that amount. All my dogs and cat go there. The staff and doctors work me in at any time and are GREAT with my animals. My dogs are always happy to see them and get plenty of hugs and kisses and give them right back. This hospital is definitley not all about the almighty dollar.

We have been going to this vet for approx 2 years even though not convienant to our home. The practice is under new ownership - they did not notify customers of ownership change- I found out the hard way when trying to get my dogs Rx filled.

The Rx was supposed to be honored until next yearly exam (6 months from now). The staff and vet Dr H refused to fax over a refill permission to 800-Pet-Meds.

He even lied to the the woman who called to verify the Rx, stating no refills were available (I have copy of Rx that says 1 refill available). That came down to a technicality "he did not write the prescription..." well technically that is correct he did not write the prescription but another Dr. B that used to work there did.

The vet (Dr H) screamed at me on the phone about how I can't tell him how to run his business, he would not do business with 800-Pet-meds. Basically staff implied that 800-Pet-Meds fills their medicines with something other than real medicine.

I told him I have used 800-Pet-Meds for over 6 years and had never had a problem and that his office used to fax over refill permissions to them.

This vet is all about the buck $$, he would rather my dog get heartworms than honor a prescription unless I buy it from him. We were out of town at the time I needed to fill the Rx so I ordered via Pet Meds on internet assuming it would be filled and I would have medicine when I got home (my father going through cancer) and it was impossible for us to get to his office to get the medicine.

I called the board here in South Carolina to file a complaint against him and they informed me he only been registered since 03 with them, I don't know if he has only been in SC that long or that is total experience.

These people aren't here to help they are here to make a dime $$.
