Bohicket Veterinary Clinic was purchased in 1998 by Dr. Jonathan Shong and Dr. Michelle Rockwell. They met in veterinary school and found they had the same feelings on how they wanted to run a clinic and how important it was to spend time with each patient and client. They compliment each other in their medical and surgical interests. Dr. Shong finds interest in ultrasound, orthopedic surgery, ophthalmic surgery, and large animal medicine. Dr Rockwell finds interest in dentistry, behavioral medicine, and many routine and non-routine soft tissue surgeries. Dr. Shong graduated from Tuskegee School of Veterinary Medicine Magna Cum Laude in 1996. He spent some of his childhood in Ohio on his grandfathers farm but most of his life has been here in Charleston, South Carolina. Dr. Rockwell graduated for Tuskegee School of Veterinary Medicine Cum Laude in 1997. She grew up in Vineland, New Jersey and moved to Charleston when she met Dr. Shong in veterinary school.

Our staff includes two receptionists, who have been with the clinic for many years. Jean Koenig and Valerie Kunze are very experienced and helpful. Jean and her husband, Paul, moved from Texas to Johns Island in 2001. In Texas Jean had many interests, including raising dairy goats, riding horses, and adopting and saving many cats and dogs. Val has a soft spot for pointers and labs, but as you get to know Val, she loves all animals, especially those with special needs. Her husband, Allen is retired Army. Military life has given her the opportunity to live all over the world, including Japan, Newfoundland, Hawaii, and Italy. The clinic also has two technicians, Priscilla Davis and Joy Cromer, that are caring and extremely helpful in the exam rooms and during all procedures.
