    Ian Harding

    I have been with VCA Charles Towne Animal Hospital since January 2013.  I attended the Veterinary Technician program at Trident Technical College.  I have always loved animals, and have a desire to help in any situation.  My current animal companions are my dog, Frank, an Australian Sheperd Mix and a cat named Sawkes.  Outside of work, I play bass guitar in an event band and I love playing Jazz music. In my spare time, I enjoy walking my dog and playing frisbee with him!  I also volunteer with the Colitis and Chron's Disease Foundation.

    "My love for animals makes work never seem like work."

  • Veterinary Assistant

    Mary O'Gray

    I recently moved to the area and had been working at a VCA hospital for the past 7 years in Virginia.  I have a 7 year old mixed breed named Teagan, and a 3 year old orange tabby named Cheetos.  Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, reading, and going to the beach!

    "I love being able to work with animals every day and being able to help the pets and their owners live happier lives : )"


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist.

In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
