Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.
    Breanna Kitchukov
    Veterinarian

    Dr. Breanna Kitchukov grew up in Chapin, SC and graduated from Chapin High School in 2010.
    She worked as a veterinary assistant while attending the University of South Carolina Aiken,
    where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Shortly after, she went on to the
    University of Georgia and graduated with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2018. She
    practiced small animal medicine in Columbia and North Augusta, SC before finding her way to
    Palmetto Veterinary Medicine and Surgery-Rock Hill in April of 2021. In her free time, she enjoys
    reading and volleyball. She shares a home with her husband, George, and her Border collie

  • Dr.
    Sean Stewart
    Veterinarian

    Dr Stewart joined the team in 4/2019. He graduated from Clemson University with his B.S. Degree and Georgia University with his DVM Degree.

  • Dr.
    Brenton Gwinn
    Veterinarian

    Brenton is another local, having grown up in Lake Wylie.  Just like Dr. Love, Brenton also attended Clemson University and received his B.S. in Animal Science before getting his D.V.M. from theUniversity of Georgia.  Don't let the black and red ties fool you, Brenton swears that he bleeds orange and purple!  His hobbies include traveling, the beach, riding horses, skiing, riding motorcycles, and exercising.  Dr. Gwinn recently got a blue heeler/border collie puppy named Deuce.  So if you see him while visiting the office, be sure to say hello (belly rubs appreciated).

    He can be reached at brenton@palmettovet.com

  • Dr.
    James Love
    Veterinarian

    Dr James Love has strong ties to the community and town of McConnells. His family has been living in York County since revolutionary times. His only time away from the area was to attend Clemson University for his B.S. degree and to attend Tuskeegee University for his D.V.M. degree. Whenever he has the chance to discuss Clemson sports, he will gladly take the time to try to convert you if you are not already a fan! He is known for his 'laid back' attitude and always has a joke on the tip of his tongue. He, and most of his immediate family, live within a few miles from the clinic and are frequently 'stopping by' to chat with clients and friends. If you are not already a friend of his, you will soon become one.

    He can be reached at james@palmettovet.com

    We adore this Veterinary practice! My dogs actually love coming in the door (probably because the place smells great!) and thats a big deal. The staff and Doctors are all very caring, and the groomers are great too.

    Ingrid S (Google)

    Doctors and Staff treat your pet like they would their own. They are considerate and caring to both you and your "best friend". I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who wants the best for their pet.

    Emily E. (Google Reviews)

    Wow what a great group! Just moved to area and had an emergency situation with my dog that Dr. Love took great care of. Staff was just as amazing and all had great "bed side manners" - I appreciated their very honest approach. Very thankful for my happy health dog and for Palmetto Vet Practice-
