Irmo Pet Retreat caters to furry friends with private rooms and secure playing fields in a 7,300-square-foot enclave as safe and climate-controlled as each canine's own home. Eschewing traditional kennels, each suite supports man's best friends and their paws with rubber floors, cushy beds, and tempered glass walls. Each day, pampered pups take four to six escorted trips to the outdoor yard where they can run, wrestle, or dig foundations for skyscrapers to their hearts' content. Caring counselors feed pets twice a day, whether the retreat's premium dry kibble or leftovers dog owners have brought from home, and will administer medication if needed at no additional charge. The retreat keeps pets safe with 24-hour video monitoring and welcomes doggie siblings to stay in the same suite for an additional $10–$15 per day.
The staff members at Seven Oaks Animal Hospital aren’t just trained professionals—they’re pet owners themselves. Because of this, they dote on each four-legged patient as if it were their own, whether they are administering shots, grooming nails and ears, or reminiscing about the days when gentlemen wore collars. Of course, Seven Oaks is a go-to destination for more serious pet health problems as well. The hospital's veterinarians and assistants perform blood tests and ultrasounds to diagnose diseases, and if necessary they operate using patient-specific anesthesia protocols. They even run behavioral-counseling sessions for puppies and for adult dogs exhibiting abnormal tendencies.
Dr. Katie Searle, a veterinarian who has performed more than 1,500 surgeries, heads a team of creature caretakers specializing in general medicine and surgery for both large and small animals, including all breeds of dogs and cats. Located inside the Irmo Animal Supply House plaza, Palmetto Animal Health’s team tends to furry and feathered friends with services such as vaccinations and digital x-rays. While not included with this Groupon, Dr. Searle also offers in-home services for animals who prefer their leopard-print chaise lounges to an examination table.
