Customer Testimonials

When calling to get an appointment, they were able to get me in that day. They were very friendly. The vet did an amazing job with all of my dogs shots at his annual check up and treated him as if he were her own. I would highly recommend taking your pets to them.

They staff is very helpful and informative. They were very polite and kind. The prices are average for a small animal vet clinic. They are very caring for their patients. I will be returning here for all of my pets future needs. Also a great location only a few minutes from our house. There is not a lot of vets out this way so it's great to have one close.

Everyone at Lake Murray seemed genuinely interested in my cat, they took excellent care of her and explained everything to me. Boo made herself at home and I was satisfied with the clinic!

The doctors and staff are very knowledgeable and accommodating. The office is always clean, bright and cheerful. We always get wonderful personal attention. They are honest and don't try to sell unneeded services. We would not go anywhere else!

From Our Website

Lake Murray Animal Hospital has been a fixture of the Batesburg-Leesville/Gilbert community for over 45 years. Founded by Dr. William Howard Giddens in 1965, the veterinarian practice has continued to grow and provide service to our surrounding community. Dr. Heyward Boyette and Dr. Ginger Macaulay purchased the clinic in 2000, where it continued to operate in the original building that was first used as a service station for truckers. In 2008, a new facility located a few miles from the original building was opened, which has enabled us to improve our quality of care for our patients.

At Lake Murray Animal Hospital, you can expect state of the art medical care for your four-legged companions. We believe in nurturing the human-animal bond and creating a harmonious relationship between people and animals. You can expect to be greeted by a courteous receptionist, clean exam rooms, friendly doctors, and caring technicians. We appreciate the role we get to play in your pet's health care. If you have any questions or comments about how we can care for your pet, please contact us today at (803) 892-7070.
