Thank you for your kind words!

We are new to the area and just visiting. Dr Cox and her staff were very very nice. They are very caring with all the pets there! Thank you so much for taking such good care of our dog. I have the utmost faith in your practice. Again, thank you!

I called one minute before they closed. They were very polite and helpful. I was advised to show up the next morning at 8:30 and they would squeeze me in. I arrived at 8:15 filled out paperwork and they called me back immediately. I was moving from VA to NC during Florence and was a little stressed when my puppy had a scratch cornea. The receptionist, vet tech, and vet were very caring and understanding. They treated my baby like their own! I’m so fortunate that I found Island Pet Veterinary Hospital. I would highly recommend!!!

My very 1st contact with the Staff, was very warm and welcoming, I filled out all the new patients paperwork and made my 1st appointment for my dog Max. I had my vet in PA fax all the medical records for both my dogs.

My 1st appointment was yesterday, again the staff was efficient and very warm and welcoming. Dr. Cox is great, she is truly committed to providing good care and was very attentive to my concerns.

I did a lot of research before I chose Island Pet Veterinary Hospital to provide care to my dogs. I am so glad that I did choose Island Pet Veterinary Hospital.

We love Island Pet Vet!! Dr. Cox & Dr. Fisher are amazing. We have had nothing but the best care for our fur babies. They really care deeply for your animals no matter what type. They are the only vet we will use for the rest of lives

Since my fur babies and I came through their doors, I noticed the rare trait of “active listening” by the veterinarians and staff, the genuine caring, patience, and respect of their clientele, and each other, their welcoming smiles, and their ability to ease any anxiety.
I knew something was not right with one of my Persians, and today, is doing well thanks to the immediate Dx and care plan.
Amanda helped me set up auto-ship on their website recently, with a partnered veterinary pharmacy and supply service, thus enabling me to get the RX diet needed without interruption, as it is not sold locally. I cannot say enough thanks for Drs. Guttroff, Cox, and Manczka-Fisher and the entire staff. It’s so important that they know how appreciated they all are. The “me-too’s” and me, say thank you for being you.

The staff was very pleasant and accommodating even under the circumstances of a hurricane recovery process. They treated my Springer “Linus the Mischievous” with the utmost care and professionalism. Linus is recovering nicely and almost back to his ornery self… Thank you very much to the staff…

Dr. Cox is so gentle and kind as well as her staff. Everyone treated my furbaby like a princess. Dr. Cox was very thorough in her exam and explained things in a way I could understand. Thank you Island Pet Veterinary Hospital!

We were on vacation and needed a vet to look at our older dog who had contracted something causing diarrhea and vomiting. We called and they got back to us within two hours and saw us that afternoon. Staff was helpful and courteous. Dr. Michelle Cox was very thoughtful and thorough in her examination and didn’t recommend or prescribe unneeded treatments. Less than 24 hours later the dog is doing much better and on the mend. The services were very reasonably priced. We are very appreciative of the kind, professional, and courteous service and care our pet received. Highly recommended!

Wonderful place! I didn’t have an appointment until Monday morning, and they squeezed me in their already packed schedule on Wednesday for my sick baby Zoey. They got her all treated up and she already feels so much better, forever grateful.

Wonderful experience with everyone at this office. They were able to get my dog in same day and were very friendly and caring. We will be back!
