Hillside Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to providing a friendly experience for you and your pet at every visit. We believe in getting to know your four-legged friends to establish trust, comfort and maintain a long-lasting relationship. Which is why we recommend bringing every pet in for routine wellness exams at least once a year.
We provide wellness check-ups and routine care, as well as urgent and emergency care when your pet is experiencing an illness.
We can typically diagnose and treat most common illnesses such as GI upset, Diabetes, endocrine disorders, arthritis, allergies/skin disorders, etc. If there is a case that we aren’t capable of treating or diagnosing, we work closely with local specialists and referral hospitals so your pets can still receive the care they need.
SURGERY AND ANESTHETIC PROCEDURES
(performed Monday thru Friday):
Spays and Neuters
We take dental health seriously, which is why all of our dental procedures include IV fluids, anesthetic monitoring, full-mouth dental x-rays, and teeth cleaning and polishing.
We are able to perform simple as well as complicated extractions on diseased and/or fractured teeth.
ECG (heart rate and rhythm)
As well as blood pressure, temperature and respiratory rate.
We are happy to provide appointments for all routine services, such as:
- Routine Diagnostics and Lab Work
- Regular check-ups
- New puppy/kitten exams
We understand you have a busy schedule, which is why we offer a drop-off service for your pet’s visit.
We ask that you pre-fill out our 'Drop Off Consent Form' prior to the visit, and bring it along to your appointment.
Don't worry - our friendly staff will ensure your pet is comfortable and cared for at all times!
If your pet is being dropped off at our hospital, we require a Drop-Off Consent Form to be filled out. Please be sure to provide as much detail as possible when filling out.
A pet being scheduled as a 'Drop Off' WILL spend the majority of the day in our hospital.
When we schedule these visits, we will give you an "arrival time", this is not an "appointment", as drop offs are examined by our doctors in the order in which they come in, with emergencies taking precedence.
Please be assured the pets are placed in appropriately sized kennels and given water and/or a litter box, and taken out for walks as indicated.
A staff member will call you with an update once your pet has been seen/treated.
Acupuncture – the ancient Chinese art of inserting small needles into acupuncture points- can help pets too.
Our hospital is fully equipped with complete on-site laboratory capabilities. We are able to quickly and efficiently perform routine tests such as:
CBC (complete blood count)
Chemistry profiles (kidney/liver/glucose/electrolyte levels)
Canine Heartworm and tick-borne disease testing
Thyroid level Monitoring
Urinalysis and Fecal analysis
Feline Leukemia/FIV/Heartworm testing
We also offer advanced testing through off-site reference laboratories.
Our hospital has a portable ultrasound on-site. This allows us a safe and non-invasive method of evaluating internal organs such as the heart, spleen, bladder, liver, kidneys, and intestines.
We also work closely with a mobile ultra-sonographer (by appointment only). This allows us to obtain full abdominal ultrasounds, as well as echocardiograms of the heart, right here in our hospital. These images are submitted to a board-certified radiologist and/or cardiologist for interpretation. Our veterinarians will review these reports and discuss the findings with you, in order to determine the best course of treatment.
We are able to perform radiographs quickly and safely with our on-site digital low-dose x-ray machine.
