Dr. Orr and the staff at Mt Pleasant Animal Hospital are the very best.  Not only are they excellent at their jobs but they genuinely care about the animals they work with.  My animals are my children and Dr Orr and the MPAH staff make me feel confident in the treatment they suggest.  They treat my furbabies as if they were their furbabies.  I can't say enough about this facility and the awesome people who work here.  T.

Josh with Lucky

Josh with Lucky

Louie showed up and followed an employee into Mt. Pleasant Animal Hospital in November 2012. He was sweet and full grown, yet he was not fixed. We searched for an owner with no luck. After testing for diseases and neutering Louie, we sought to find him a new home. However, Louie had claimed Mt. Pleasant Animal Hospital as his home & family and now lives here full-time. Here daily to greet the pets and people as they arrive, he is well suited to be a humble ambassador for us.
