I?ve been around dogs my entire life, and have had my own for 15+ years (1 Beagle, 2 Boxers, and now a Doberman). Hillside is by far the best veterinary hospital in town, because you can tell they genuinely care for your animals. They try to keep costs low and offer to help wherever they can, which is not common in this industry (or world for that matter).
I?ve had dogs with horrible genetic diseases to the point that nothing could be done to cure them (horrible skin allergies, blindness, kidney failure, brain tumors, mange, etc.), so I?ve had experiences with quite a few veterinarians over the years. In the cases where my dogs were lucky enough to have been treated at Hillside, their staff has always truly gone out of their way to make their time on Earth as enjoyable as possible.
I fully credit them with saving my current Doberman?s life. She had a horrible case of mange as a puppy, and if it weren?t for Hillside she wouldn?t be here today. She?s now going on 6 years and is a beautiful, strong, and most importantly, happy girl. Looking at her now, no one would ever think that she almost didn?t make it as a puppy. They even worked with me financially because they felt so bad about all the health problems my previous Boxer had, which were not Hillside?s fault in the slightest.
It sickens me to see people complaining about their practice, as you just don?t come across genuine people like this often. These people deserve nothing but praise, and I wish there were more people like this out there. In reading each of the negative reviews, it?s the reviewer you really should question, not Hillside. I?ve been around plenty of vets and ?specialists? who claim they will help your dogs, but in reality all they want is your money. There is not a person like that at Hillside, they care for your animals more than anyone else I?ve found, and truly want to help. I will never take one of my dogs to another vet so long as they are around, and I am truly grateful they are here.
