South Carolina Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Care has served the Midlands for more than 20 years and is the area’s longest serving specialty and emergency veterinary hospital. Fifteen doctors provide services in cardiology, dermatology, internal medicine, oncology, emergency and critical care. Their extended campus offers surgery, anesthesiology, neurology, and ophthalmology — providing the most comprehensive care available for your pets.
2022 saw the addition of their new critical care department, along with Department Head, Dr. Teresa Rieser. She is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care and brings with her more than 25 years of experience. SCVSEC is the only emergency hospital in the Greater Columbia area to have a full-time criticalist on staff.
SCVSEC is AAHA certified and is designated as a Level 2 Critical Care Facility by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society. Their emergency department is open 24/7 and has a devoted team of doctors and staff equipped with specialized and essential equipment to provide the highest quality of care for all patients any time, day, or night.
Their specialty, emergency and critical care teams pride themselves on compassionate care. They strive to educate their clients on medical options for their pet and work closely with pet owners and their family veterinarians to develop individualized treatment plans for their patients. They look forward to additional growth as they continue to meet the needs of pet owners across the Midlands.
