You will find the Isle of Palms nestled away on a barrier island on the coast of South Carolina. This small city in Charleston County is full of charm, and has beautiful beaches to make the most of in the warmer months. You will only find one veterinary clinic on the Isle of Palms, but there are several animal hospitals not far away in Mount Pleasant.
Since the Isle of Palms is a vacation resort, there are a
lot of Airbnb homes and hotels that are available to rent with your pup. For example,
there is a four bedroom vacation home available at the Wild Dunes Resort. This will
provide you with a comfort base for your travels around the Isle of Palms,
where your family and furry friend can join you. It boasts beautiful views of
the beach and you can also enjoy all of the Wild Dunes Resort amenities too.
