Meet the friendly staff at Ladson Veterinary Hospital!
Dr. Stacey Strong graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Animal Science and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn. She has been practicing small animal medicine in the Lowcountry for about 15 years. Her interests are internal medicine, dermatology, preventative medicine, and providing fear free experiences for each patient. Dr. Strong is passionate about feline medicine and feline behavior. She has taken extensive training in feline & canine medicine and will continue as we progress within the practice. She is a member of American Association of Feline Practioners (AAFP) and has earned her Fear Free Certification. She has 3 amazing cats - one being a fun, loving, comical Bengal named Finley, a Tabby named Oliver, and an old lady Tortie named Zoe. She also has 2 sugar gliders named Mario & Luigi. When she is not working, she enjoys reading, gardening, and bird-watching.
Karima is our Assistant Office Manager/Client Service Representative that started with the Goose Creek Vet team, but is now here at Ladson since the opening in 2019 with a long background in veterinary care. She started off as an office manager for a large and small animal hospital in West Texas where she is from, and made her way to the nurse side shortly after. She moved to the Lowcountry in 2015 and joined the our tea. Karima has been a valuable member ever since! She's a lover of all creatures large and small, and has 4 fur-babies of her own: Atlas - an Alaskan Husky, Cinna - an Australian Shepherd Mix, a Black short-haired cat named Hela, and a Grey Tabby named Zephyr. Together they are sweet, fluffy couch potatoes that enjoy long cuddle sessions, eating loads of snacks, taking naps, and watching Netflix. Karima recently obtained the title of a Cat Friendly Veterinary Advocate from the American Association of Feline Practitioners and hopes to continue her education on better understanding the complexity of our friendly felines.
