Mixed opinion of this clinic... 3/20/2006

There was a time I would have given high marks to Hillsborough Animal Clinic. In the past I was impressed with affordable services, clean facilities, competent doctors, and pleasant reception staff. They still have wonderful people working at the front desk, but I'm not as happy with the rest of business anymore. The prices have gone up and the competence has gone down. While I still think they would be a suitable facility to visit for routine shots, I would not recommend them for diagnosing major health problems. One of my cats had a problem supporting himself on his hind legs. The doctor on staff said that cats almost never get arthritis (not true) and he dismissed the obvious symptoms I informed him about. The x-rays he ordered did not even completely cover the problem area (and were very expensive), so after running up quite a bill, he said nothing was wrong. As the symptoms got worse I saw a vet at a different clinic who took x-rays and was able to show me that the cat clearly had FHD (feline hip dysplasia) and that there was no reason the other vet should have missed such an obvious problem weeks earlier. The same vet at Hillsborough Animal clinic had also prescribed a medication to one of my pets that was dangerous for prolonged use given that he had an enlarged heart. I was not aware of that until I went to the other clinic. Despite the problems I encountered, if you just need shots or flea medication, or perhaps even a general well-check, I'm sure this clinic would do fine. more
