The team at Hilltop is absolutely extraordinary: they are thorough, thoughtful, kind, and patient. We brought our Westie, Nigel, to them for acupuncture, after multiple other vets told us that his leg issues were related to arthritis in his hip. Julie treated him with acupuncture but also took the time to examine him thoroughly during each visit, consider his history, listen to our reports, etc. After we did not see improvement, she recommended x-rays and a consultation with Hannes, their orthopedic specialists, which led to the discovery that we were actually dealing with a ruptured cruciate. He was absolutely incredible with both us and our Westie, answering every question that we had, and the surgery has been a success. Four months later, we have a Westie who is back to exploring the fields and chasing bunnies. While we're grateful for this fact, we're equally grateful for treatment that we received throughout his surgery and recovery. Every single member of the Hilltop team went above and beyond, whether it was their kindness while we were waiting to go in for stressful visits, their patience with emailed questions about his recovery, or their true care for both Nigel and us. They made a challenging situation immeasurably easier with their empathy and helpfulness; they are not only good vets, but also kind, caring people! I cannot recommend them highly enough!
