We have been the premier Mount Pleasant vet clinic serving the greater Charleston area for the past decade.  We have serviced all areas of Charleston from Mount Pleasant to Kiawah Island.  We have enjoyed being part of our clients and pets' lives.  Over the years, one of our favorite aspects of our housecall practice has been client education. Our pet parents want the best for their furry family members which means being informed about the decisions they make for them.  This includes wondering which is the best ear cleaner for dogs with ear infections or which dog bed works best for dogs with arthritis. 

Over the years, Dr. Barrett has written numerous articles about pet care. You can read more of her articles at She has tested countless pet products including dog toys for avid chewers and treat dispensers for hyperactive dogs. We only recommend products that we use for our own pets.  Education and client communication are the cornerstones that Island Veterinary Care were built upon.  While treating patients, we not only want to care for your pet but we also want to ensure you understand the importance of preventative medicine and why we recommend certain testing and medications.  Client communication and satisfaction is our top priority. 


While Dr. Barrett still sees patients daily, she now hopes Island Veterinary Care will become a great resource for pet parents looking for sound advice and recommendations.  

We are so excited to be part of your pets life from puppyhood to grey whiskers!
