Mt Pleasant Dogs and Thunder
Anne Blythe wrote a great article recently that was in the Post and Courier. See the whole article at: http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2011/jul/31/31dogstorm
NC State researchers have been looking into phobias and anxieties exhibited by dogs for years now and have found that around 40 percent families studied reported some sort of anxiety for at least one of their dogs.
The article was really more about a device designed by Phil Blizzard, the Thundershirt, but we just want to pass along to you that your dogs’ negative reactions to thunderstorms in certainly not unusual.
Pet Keepers Dog Boarding and Cat Boarding Kennel in Mount Pleasant SC announces two cost savings measures:
1. Dog bathing and cat bathing prices reduced! There are not many things better in life than cuddling up to a freshly bathed and brushed dog or cat. We have reduced our bathing prices across the board roughly five dollars. The gentle massage of our HydroSurge Bathing System, quality shampoos and brush out provides comfort for your pet and your cuddling.
2. We now accept both the one-year and three-year distemper vaccinations for visitors. We recommend a maximum of one year from the last distemper vaccination when boarding due to the higher risk scenario, however that decision is now left to the owner.
Dog Boarding Mount Pleasant SC Breaking News
Years ago, there used to be a Pet Keepers II Doggie Day Care and Boarding Kennel next to Shuler Veterinary Clinic on Highway 17. Many of you remember that facility and some of you regret the loss of the convenience. Pet Keepers II Dog and Cat Boarding Kennel was closed to concentrate all of our attention on the original Pet Keepers.
Enough with the history; now as you drive by the closed premiere doggy day care facility, you will see CHANGE.
Remember the dilapidated house between Pet Keepers II on Highway 17 and Lowes? It is now in small pieces and maybe even hauled away by the time you read this. That whole lot is being graded to get ready a new business, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.
Check out the demolition photos below. There will be more to follow as the back half of old Pet Keepers II will also fall prey to the jaws of the huge back hoe.
Not to be outdone, Shuler Veterinary Clinic put a fresh coat of paint on their building and will soon be doing some landscaping to blend in with the new business.
Watch the progress as you drive by on Highway 17. It seems as though Mount Pleasant Town Center is almost including Shuler Veterinary Clinic.
Daytime boarding is known by several variations:
or any of these using “Day Care” instead of “Daycare”.
Kitty day care, kitten day care and cat daycare are implied when using the dog daycare phrase.
We get many inquires from new and old customers asking if we at Pet Keepers provide that service. YES, we certainly do! We love day boarders.
Our doggy daycare service may be needed if you are remodeling, have out-of-town guest with their own finicky pets, letting the maid have free run of your house, etc. It is also great for you to let your pet have a special vacation as a treat now and then, frisking in our play yard during the day instead of just laying around until you get home from work.
Vacationers from out-of-town find doggie day care very beneficial when they want to do some sight seeing around the area and don’t want to leave their pet in the motel room for most of the day alone.
Give us a call today and arrange a special treat for your puppy or kitty!
Want a tip? Bring your pet(s) in for a bath and get daycare for FREE! Drop off anytime before noon and pick up before we close. 843-849-8866
Just a quick note to let everyone know that we are taking reservations at Pet Keepers Mount Pleasant Boarding Kennel for the Easter period.

There is a great article in the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine 2007-2008 Report to Donors.
The article talks about how memorial contributions to honor pets are not only being made by owners, but also by the pets’ veterinarians. The story tells of how Dr. Kevin Shuler made a memorial gift in honor of a customer’s springer spaniel that had died. The owner was so moved that he contributed $25,000 to the New Teaching Hospital Building Fund.
When interviewed, he told of how Dr. Kevin Shuler was a wonderful sincere caregiver, and that he and his father, Dr. K.C. Shuler, had taken care of his pets all of their lives. He further stated that the Shulers were more than just business owners to him and his wife, they were like family doctors.
A quick run around the block for Squeedunk and Boca

All members of the staff have worked several December holiday seasons and are looking forward to seeing some old pals again.
