DIAH on Wheels is a charitable organization founded by Dr. Lynne Flood, owner veterinarian of Daniel Island Animal Hospital. Dr. Flood has been practicing veterinary medicine for 23 years and opened DIAH in January of 2004. Her passion is caring for older patients; helping them feel better for longer. She recently completed a certification in gerontology, which further fueled her interest in care for aging humans and animals. Dr. Flood knows how much joy a healthy pet can bring, especially to the elderly. DIAH on Wheels is her way of spreading that joy by keeping pets and their owners happy and healthy!

Our organization is partnering with local senior service providers, such as Berkeley Seniors, East Cooper Meals on Wheels, and Canterbury House, to provide free food and veterinary care for the pets low-income, homebound seniors. Our primary goal is to address public health issues by providing pet care services. Pets benefit the elderly by providing them love and companionship, while also keeping them happy and active. Thus, by maintaining pet health, we hope to improve the lives of animals and humans alike. We plan to provide items and services in the form of: pet food and supplies, vaccinations, medicine for sick animals, and spays and neuters for unaltered pets.

Since late 2013, we have created relationships with 70 families  with  over 150 in Berkeley and Charleston counties. We look forward to expanding our reach in the years to come, providing accessible, free veterinary care for seniors in need.
