Meet Our Veterinarians

  • Dr.
    James Love
    Veterinarian

    Dr. James Love has strong ties to the community and to the town of McConnells.  His family has been living in York County since before the Revolutionary War.  His only time away from the area was to attend Clemson University for his B.S. degree and to attend Tuskeegee University for Veterinary School. 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.  Dr. Love enjoys surgery and in particular some of the more difficult orthopedic surgeries. 

    He can be reached at James@palmettovet.com
