Let me look at the law on this and do some research and I will get back to you within the hour....
I have found an answer for you; but it is not looking pretty. Here is what SC law states in relevant part:
SECTION 40-69-270. Licensing requirement; exceptions.(A) A person may not engage in the practice of veterinary medicine in this State without a current and valid license issued by the board pursuant to this chapter. Nothing in this chapter may be construed to prohibit:(1) ...(4) a person or a regular employee from administering to the person's own animals, except when the ownership is so vested for the purpose of circumventing the provisions of this chapter or except when the employee is so employed for the purpose of circumventing the provisions of this chapter; however, the administration to the animals must be in compliance with all federal, state, and local laws;
Based on the above, I am afraid the purchase of these pets for treatment purposes may be viewed as circumvention. I know this is not the answer you wanted to hear, but I am assuming that you are paying for a professional and honest answer.
