Sweetgrass Animal Hospital today announced the opening of their facility in the Oakbrook Shopping Center at 9730 Dorchester Road. The hospital will provide care to dogs and cats; offering medicine, surgery, radiology, dentistry, and wellness care services.
Dr. Suzy Shannon founded Sweetgrass Animal Hospital to fulfill her goal of providing high-quality veterinary medicine to cats and dogs in a stress-free environment. “I believe there are some subtle things we can do to help alleviate the stress that dogs and cats experience while in the hospital,” Shannon says. “It may be as simple in the way in which you approach them or pet them.”
A graduate of North Carolina State University’s prestigious College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Shannon practiced in the Charleston area for four years before moving to San Diego, CA, where she continued to work at various progressive practices. Although she enjoyed her California “adventure”, she says that being back in the Lowcountry feels like home.
She goes on to describe the brand new facility. “Sweetgrass has a lot to offer. We have all new equipment including a high-speed dental machine, digital x-ray, and a comprehensive in-house laboratory. Couple that with our extremely knowledgeable and compassionate staff, and we couldn’t be more proud of the practice we are building.”
Dr. Shannon’s staff includes Summerville native Cassandra Mozena and licensed veterinary technician Stephanie Fletcher.
Sweetgrass Animal Hospital’s hours of operation are 8am to 6pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday; and 8am to noon on Saturday. They can be reached by phone at 843-225-9663, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Their website is www.sweetgrassanimalhosptial.com.
