  • Thank you

    -Lola from North Myrtle Beach, SC
    Pet Name: Luke

    I had to bring my 13 year old pom up to the office today because he was in distress this morning, we were already scheduled for an appointment but needed to be seen earlier, everyone was very concerned and helpful. We saw Ashleigh and Dr. Ward (who was Luke's vet from the age of 3 months) they make the best team and wish they were able to be together there all the time. Dr. Ward is truly the best vet and Ashleigh is the best tech ever. We cannot express how thankful we are that of all days for Luke to have a breathing spell that we had an appointment with Dr. Ward. He knew what was happening to him and explained it to me where I could calm down and not break down with worry. Dr. Ward has always been like this, he knows what to say and how to say it. We have Polaroid pictures of Dr. Ward as Santa Paws with Luke and Lexie when they were 3 months old and Seaside was new. He has helped Luke with many problems over the years and we are so lucky to have found him 13 years ago. Luke is feeling better and resting well now. Thank you to Amy and Rhonda for taking care of the front office also, they are gems.

  • Dr. Thomas and Ashley

    -Nancy clark from Ocean isle beach, NC
    Pet Name: Nacho

    I had just moved to the area when my beloved dog nacho fell ill. I went to the VCA Seaside animal hospital because it was the first one I saw. I got Dr. Thomas and Ashley. I can't say how grateful I am to them. Dr. Thomas treated nacho with respect and compassion. He did all he could for her and when I had to make the heartbreaking decision to put her down he did not try to make me change my mind. And Ashley was there by my side thru the whole thing. God bless u both.

  • Emergent visit

    -Gretchen Sobotka from Pittsburgh, PA
    Pet Name: Deacon

    VCA Seaside was so professional and caring as we had to emergently take our dog to the vet for GI bleeding! From the first phone call, Rhonda was so nice and welcoming. Our tech, Julie, sat down and listened to us and was so comforting and knowledgeable. Our vet, Jennifer Bailey, also welcomed us with open arms and was very reassuring! Even our dog, Deacon, felt at home and went with them wherever they took him. The pricing was very reasonable and they make sure you feel comfortable! My husband and I were so impressed and are raving about the care our dog got during a trying time! Thank you VCA Seaside! You were all so wonderful!
