Dr. Lee Burnett, Veterinarian at Palmetto Animal Hospital
Dr. Burnett graduated from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. He worked with a mixed-animal practice for many years before focusing strictly on small animal veterinary medicine. His interests include internal medicine and preventive care, ultrasound, and business management. He is also certified for the treatment of felines with hyperthyroidism.
Dr. Burnett always had pets growing up and they showed him the kindness and patience that he needed to care for them. This triggered his interest in veterinary medicine. He has one dog named Molly, and three cats named Limpy Lou, Maggie, and Moo Cow. All of his cats are three-legged and run around the clinic freely.
Passionate for high-quality veterinary medicine, Dr. Brenda McKinley is an accomplished doctor committed to providing her clients and patients with the very best services and care. Along with her gentleness and superior client communication, Dr. McKinley is highly skilled in laser surgery and general surgical procedures.
After graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts in 2004, Dr. McKinley accepted a position as a veterinary assistant and registered veterinary technician at Santa Fe Pet Hospital in California. In pursuit of her dream to become a veterinarian, Dr. McKinley earned licensing in the state of California and accepted a position at the Santa Fe practice. Relocating to Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, she also treated animals at a rescue clinic for two years prior to joining the team at Palmetto Animal Hospital.
Dr. McKinley has a knack for arts & crafts, decorating and event planning. Each year, she actively participates in animal fundraisers and counts down the days until her favorite holiday, Halloween. At home, Dr. McKinley cares for six felines and a Chihuahua, all rescues from the golden state.
Dr. Sarah Morse has had a passion for helping animals for as long as she can remember. She loved playing doctor with her family pets as a child, and went on to volunteer her time at the local humane society. Her innate love for animals motivated her to become the compassionate, skilled, and successful veterinarian she is today.
Originally from Starkville, Mississippi, Dr. Morse earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal and Dairy Science from Mississippi State University in 2013. She continued her education at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2016.
Dr. Sarah Morse joined the team at Palmetto Animal Hospital in October 2018. She has professional interests in soft tissue surgery and exotic animal medicine, and is a USDA accredited veterinarian in the state of South Carolina. To Dr. Morse, nothing makes her day quite like seeing a beloved pet regain their health and happiness.
Dr. Morse enjoys spending her spare time gardening and playing video games. She is the proud pet parent to a senior mixed-breed dog named Ed (female), a playful kitten named Charles Wallace, and a goldfish named Pop Tart. Ed is highly intelligent and knows every trick in the book (plus a few more!) Fun fact: The first pet Dr. Morse ever had was a 25 cent pet store goldfish named Fishy.
