Welcome to Cashua Veterinary Care

Pet ownership is an adventure that comes with certain responsibilities. Looking out for your pet’s health and welfare is an essential part of those responsibilities. Maintaining the health of your pet involves working with an experienced, trustworthy veterinarian. At Cashua Veterinary Care, you will benefit from the skill and experience of Dr. Kate and her dedicated veterinary team in caring for your pet. Our comprehensive pet care services will keep your pet in the best of health for years to come.

Who We Are

Cashua Veterinary Care is your one-stop-shop for veterinary care services that can enhance the health and wellness of your pet. Your furry friend will receive comprehensive, conscientious pet care. Our team has a genuine love for pets which is reflected in their loving treatment of animals in our care. When you bring your pet to us, you can have full confidence that he or she will receive the best of care.


For your convenience, we offer a wide range of services to improve your pet’s health, starting with preventive care. Preventive care is designed to keep your pet healthy by preventing sickness and disease. The first step toward improved health is a pet wellness exam. We suggest that pets receive a wellness exam annually so our veterinarian can monitor their health and discuss treatment options when needed.

During an annual exam, one of our veterinarians will record your pet’s weight, growth, and development. Then we will inspect your pet from nose to tail to look for any early warning signs of sickness or disease. Early detection and treatment can prevent health problems from developing into major medical issues.

Our clinic also offers vaccinations, flea and tick prevention, parasite control, spay and neuter surgeries, microchipping, dental exams, and teeth cleanings as part of our preventive care services. If your pet is experiencing skin problems, we will test your pet for environmental or food allergies.


In addition to spay and neuter procedures, we perform soft tissue surgeries to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal conditions as well as orthopedic surgeries to treat joint problems. We use laser therapy treatments to help your pet heal after surgery.

Emergency Pet Care

When emergencies happen, contact Cashua Veterinary Care for emergency veterinary treatment. This includes broken bones from car accidents, accidental poisoning, lacerations from animal fights, and other urgent medical situations. We also perform emergency surgeries, when needed.

  • Cassie Turner
    Veterinary Technician

    Hey my name is Cassie Turner! I have been a part of CVC since 2019. Ever since I was little I have always wanted to work at a vets office! Working here at Cashua has been the best experience! I love getting to help and learn all about the animals! I currently have two dogs of my own and have recently started fostering dogs. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and being outdoors. 

  • Dr.
    Caroline Rummel
    Associate Veterinarian

    I grew up in Gaffney, South Carolina. I attended Clemson University for my undergraduate degree, and graduated in December 2012 with a B.S. in Animal & Veterinary Sciences. In the fall of 2013, I was accepted into Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine, where I worked in the large animal hospital and discovered a passion for equine medicine.
    After graduating vet school in May 2017, I completed a year-long internship at Southern Equine Services in Aiken, South Carolina. Following my internship, I made the switch to small animal medicine when I moved to Florence, SC and worked as an associate at Mullins Veterinary Hospital before accepting my current position here at Cashua Veterinary Care.
    Although I'm currently not practicing equine medicine, I'm still very passionate about riding and hope to soon compete in western/rodeo events. I also have a special love for Boykin Spaniels- I have 2 of my own, named Dallas and Roux (who are spoiled rotten!). My other fur children include a black lab named Little Ann, as well as a few chickens. 
    In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my new husband, Dan, and being outside, whether it be doing yard work, going on the lake, or running. I'm very pleased to be joining the Cashua Veterinary Care team, and looks forward to meeting the clients at Cashua Veterinary Care and serving them for many years to come!

  • Crystal Summerford
    Practice Manager and Veterinary Technician

    I am a Veterinary Technician and Veterinary Practice Manager at CVC. I'm excited to say that I have been a Veterinary Technician since 2001 and worked in this field since 1999! I have a BS degree in Biology that I obtained from Francis Marion University. I decided at a young age that my career path would be in Veterinary Medicine. After graduating high school, I set out to find my place in this field and I wouldn't change it for the world! I moved up from kennel to assistant within a year of employment. From there, I quickly began my training as a Veterinary Technician. Working with different doctors over the years has really helped increase my knowledge as a technician. I've learned so much from every Veterinarian I've worked with, and all of them have been absolutely wonderful! I also began my journey as a Veterinary Practice Manager, moving forward in helping in the vet world in another way. From 2006 to current, I've been working alongside owners to keep clinics running seamlessly and bringing continuity of care to our facilities. I hope that our facility provides you and your furry family member with infinite compassion and excellent medical care!

  • Dust Bunny Cashua Veterinary Care
    D'artagnan's bodyguard

    My name is DustBunny, DB for short. I hide in secret places in the clinic so that no one can find me. I will come out when duty calls! If I hear that a dog is coming through the clinic and my buddy Dart is having issues with this furry individual, consider it taken care of guys. I am only scared of human adults. I love children and I grow huge muscles when I need to defend Dart from dogs. Let me know if anyone needs a kitty bodyguard, I work for treats!
