As a pet owner, when your furry family member is sick or injured, you expect more than just treatment. Your pet deserves veterinary care full of comfort and compassion. Our local veterinarian and staff at Air Harbor Veterinary Clinic will welcome and care for your pets as we would with our own. We provide preventive care for local pet owners in Charleston to maintain the health of your pet's teeth, digestive system, joints, heart, and lungs.
Our veterinarian can perform surgeries, diagnose illnesses, and prescribe special treatments that support growth and development. We are recognized as one of the community's most-respected veterinary facilities in Charleston. Our animal vet clinic provides advanced care for your pet using modern equipment and cutting-edge techniques. Air Harbor Veterinary Clinic has been a family-owned practice, established by Dr. Southard Sr. in 1971. He was joined by his son, Dr. Southard Jr., in 1996. Though Dr. Southard Sr. has recently retired, he leaves the clinic in his son’s capable and caring hands.
At Air Harbor Veterinary Clinic, we provide exceptional veterinary care for your pet. Whether you bring your pet in for a routine checkup and annual shots, for surgery, or for an illness or injury, our experienced vet will treat your furry family member quickly and with the most compassionate care.
For more than 18 years our family have been privelaged to have the two Drs. Southard take care of our pets. They are compassionate and caring. I also enjoy never feeling rushed out of the exam room while they patiently explain why and what they are doing during a medical exam, or taking the time to answer any concerns. Thanks.
The vets and staff at Air Harbor are truly one of a kind. The genuine care and professionalism they show us is outstanding. They are the perfect vet office for me and Daisy. With no reservations at all, I highly recommend them to anyone in the Charleston area looking for a veterinarian.
Thank you to Dr Jim (Sr) for calling on Sunday afternoon to check on Nia after her seizure on Saturday. Air Harbor has such a wonderful & caring team that we just love! Wouldn't think of taking my fur babies anywhere else.
I've been taking my animals to Air Harbor practically my entire life! My parents always went there with my childhood pets, and now I continue the tradition. The personal relationship with Air Harbor vets and staff is immeasurable. The care received is invaluable. They treat you like you and your pets are their only, and most important clients, and that means a lot nowadays!
All our dogs have been members of the Air Harbor family. They excel at diagnosis and treatment of unusual conditions and the personal attention they offer every family. The entire staff makes sure you are comfortable with any treatments given as well as assuring you your pet will receive personal attention during their boarding stays.
From the girls in the front office to the vet techs who handle your pet, you and your pet are welcomed with a smile and greeted by name. We recommend them highly for the care of a new pet or the transfer from another vet's office. You can be confident that your pet will be well taken care of.
My family and I have used this vet for almost 30 years. They are wonderful. The father son team is brilliant and kind and have wonderful bedside manner. The whole team there works really well together, I always leave feeling appreciated and educated about my pet and her health. These guys can handle anything with grace and love.
