★★★★★ We love Dr. Mel at Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital. They treated my grumpy old man cat with such kindness even when he was being a pill. Thank you so much for caring so much!Kati N.Kati N. ★★★★★ Our family vet is dr.eric grotebeck and he is just awsome with the pup, they even managed to make my super shy husky puppy comfortable enough to goto the back with the for her vaccinesCordell C.Cordell C. ★★★★★ I've been bringing my cat here since 2012. Highly recommended. He went 4x a week from 2020 until 2023 for fluid treatments until the cancer finally got him. 🙁 Now I take my new kitten here! 10/10.Andrew K.Andrew K. ★★★★★ I was referred to Dr. Shaun Vaniman by a Dr. Pete Maki, DVM in Lacey, WA. It was the best thing to ever happen for our dog Shelby.Dr. Vaniman's compassion, thoroughness, concern, care and honesty is something that should not go unrecognized.Shelby's reaction of trust with Dr. Vaniman was amazing and reassuring. She went right up to him.I highly recommend Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital and Dr. Shaun Vaniman.Also the staff is magnificent !Yvonne S.Yvonne S. ★★★★★ High quality care, which is one reason for staying with them for over two decades, though faces may have changed, the commitment has not.John A.John A. ★★★★★ I really appreciated the care and demeanor shown by the technician. Unfortunately, I don't recall her name.Kathie K.Kathie K. ★★★★★ Exceptional care. They give you all if the information you need and make it easy to take excellent care of your pet.Susan M.Susan M. ★★★★★ I have been going to Hillsdale Vet for some time. Originally with my first cat Mr. Murphy and now with The Artful Dodger. I have been impressed with the treatment of my pets. The staff are always kind and humorous. They also tolerate my silliness. 🙂 I feel comfortable leaving my cat in the hands of the technicians and doctors. Hillsdale Vet might not be a fit for everyone (we don't like these people), but it is a perfect for me and The Artful Dodger! I highly recommend Hillsdale Vet for your animal babies!mlneal68mlneal68 ★★★★★ I've been going here for about 5 years for my two elderly cats (now passed) and now my two wee dogs. I switched here after Dr. Kellogg (formerly of Burlingame Vet) retired and was unimpressed by the new vets/pricing.I've been to half a dozen or so different vets and vet clinics all over town and I've been really happy with Hillsdale Vet Hospital. Every experience has been great. The vets and staff are kind, respectful and caring. They take excellent care of my wee fur kids and I find their pricing to be fair (not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but a bargain for the quality of care).I'm especially fond of how seriously they've taken the (yes still ongoing) pandemic. They are still requiring strict masking and distancing requirements. Their respect for the health of their staff and clients in the face of the abuse they face from anti-maskers is laudable (I witnessed one such interaction from a particularly virulent specimen at my last visit ). A+Karstan L.Karstan L. ★★★★★ Absolutely always feel my kids are in the best care. Between injuries and sickness they have always done their best to get us in right away and the follow up is always amazing. The staff as a whole is awesome and so caring.Jen M.Jen M. ★★★★★ I've been going to Hillsdale Vet Clinic for years (since 2003). I've taken 3 cats and 2 dogs there so far. Everyone there is incredibly kind & caring, both towards the pet and the human. They understand your pet's needs & work to accommodate the human's needs. I am beyond grateful for all the care, compassion, and love they have shown my pets and me over the years, through my craziness, through regular check ups, and then through the most heartbreaking decision a pet owner can make. Everyone on staff is exceptional.Jenn C.Jenn C. ★★★★★ Always great service. All vets are booked right now but they've done an excellent job squeezing us in when we've needed to bring in a pet.Hunter B.Hunter B. ★★★★★ Fantastic Dr's and staff.Brian B.Brian B. ★★★★★ Always very professional, efficient, and friendly. They handled COVID very well, I've never been blindsided by an extraneous charge or pressured into anything, and their prices seem very reasonable, so no complaints here! They've taken great care of my cat, and as an added plus, my cat seems to love their staff too.Hannah M.Hannah M. ★★★★★ UPDATE! Once again, our former vet was booking many months out when we discovered a sudden hard lump growing on our pup. So after a month of waiting to get in, we called here on the off-chance they were taking new patients. Lucky us! Hillsdale Vet was able to get her in, diagnose and successfully treat our sweet dog. She’s now fully recovered and we continue to be blown away at the professionalism and follow up of the entire staff. Rocks stars all around! We couldn’t be happier or feel luckier to be clients of Hillsdale Vet Hospital. Thank you!Previous review:Blown away at the level of concern and care their staff extends! Our dog is not a patient of this clinic, but when she became sick and our usual vet wasn’t available, they went above and beyond to help. If they begin taking new clients again, we’ll definitely be first in line. Really extraordinary - thank you!C BC B ★★★★★ I was apprehensive to drop off my dog without having met any of the staff. I was impressed with the stellar reviews, however, and took a chance. I was not disappointed. Everyone one was professional from start to finish, and the exam was the most thorough my dog has had in a long time. Bravo!S 0.S 0. ★★★★★ Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital have been taking care our pets for over 10 years now. We highly recommend this clinic! Shiloh, Addy Cat and MsTibbs agree!Bill N.Bill N. ★★★★★ They are saviors. I've got a high maintenance cat who has recently become problem ridden. We've had to impose ourselves upon Hillsdale Vet many times in the last four months and they always graciously help our little beast.Melanie H.Melanie H. ★★★★★ Great practice with very friendly and knowledgeable staffStephen C.Stephen C. ★★★★★ The best staffJamie M.Jamie M. ★★★★★ I just called to request my dogs rabies vaccination record. Elizabeth answered and while I told her why I was calling, she had already used my phone number to pull up my pets information and she simply asked if it was for "Sophie" and if I would like to use the email address she had in front of her. It seems so simple for her to do this but how many times do we punch in an account or social security number on a phone tree only to have to give it again to the human once we get through? This type of efficiency is exactly what I experience each time I use Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital. Thank you!R B.R B. ★★★★★ They’re so nice and we’re so loving towards my dog during her checkup.JoeJoe ★★★★★ Very compassionate and helpful with my old kitty.Emily G.Emily G. ★★★★★ This is our new vet having just moved into the area but we have been very happy with the personal service for our cat.Greg B.Greg B. ★★★★★ The staff here is great at making you feel at ease! From lab tests to prescription refills to general appointments, they handle things efficiently and kindly. They are very helpful in finding what fits your budget and your needs. Thank you guys!Emma D.Emma D. ★★★★★ Brought two cats in, one for vax and another for an infection. Both times was treated wonderfully!!! They don't try to pry money from you!!! Love them!Rose T.Rose T. ★★★★★ Always a great experience at Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital.Sarah L.Sarah L. ★★★★★ Dr. Schram and the entire staff are wonderful! I feel so lucky and grateful to have found this veterinary practice. They are honest, trustworthy, and sincerely care about your pet. 💕Natasha P.Natasha P. ★★★★★ Friendly staff and well run practice. Love their mobile app and text messages.Gary RGary R ★★★★★ Dr. Eric and the team at Hillsdale Vet have provided exemplary care of our beloved cat child for the past 3 years. Our cat has gotten one dental cleaning, as well as yearly wellness care and one emergency visit during this time. Dr. Eric is a cat dad himself and has a wonderful gentleness to his care. My family postponed our annual visit due to the pandemic by a handful of months until this week. I was impressed by their safety measures of parking lot drop off/pick up with phone consult during the examination. It was hard not being with our fuzzy baby during the exam but it went beautifully smooth nonetheless. Highly recommend.Meg O' L.Meg O' L. ★★★★★ My first time visit to this clinic with our aging canine was a good experience. My questions were adequately addressed, and the options to treat safely and effectively the dog's apparent problems were clearly explained without a push for selling unnecessary services.Andras G.Andras G. ★★★★★ Great service. Wonderful staff.Rod I.Rod I. ★★★★★ We were very happy with our first visit with our elderly dog and young frisky cat. Patient with review of past health issues, knowledgeable suggestions for future care, and responsive to requests.greg C.greg C. ★★★★★ Scheduling is always easy and the staff is patient and affectionate with our rescue. They provide clear instructions and follow up. I am happy with their service!Amanda H.Amanda H. ★★★★★ There a great group. Fred it office very willing to help. The vet was very helpfulShelly C.Shelly C. ★★★★★ Adjusted their business well to Covid. All services, exams and costs are discussed on the phone from the car. Only the pet gets into the clinic at this time.XterronXterron ★★★★★ They treat me cats so well. I definitely reccomend going here for all your pet needs.Quinn O.Quinn O. ★★★★★ Excellent carecate T.cate T. ★★★★★ Best vet i have ever been to. Love all the drs there, as do my pups!Scott B.Scott B. ★★★★★ They are great with my dog. Very thorough.Brian E.Brian E. ★★★★★ We just moved here from out of state. We had a pup in the past that made us very cautious of the vets we let see our pets.Trying to find a vet during a pandemic is already a challenge. Moreso when you have little trust.I called 4 different vets. They were all willing to see my guy, but they wanted to come to the car, take him, and bring him back when they were done. I was not willing to go this route for our very first ever visit in a new state.Hillsdale went the extra mile. They not only kept open communication leading up to the appointment, but they created an opportunity to Skype while he was in the room so I could see him being cared for, could ask questions, and talk to the vet through the appointment.He had an issue with his eye the next day, I sent a photo on their app asking if I should make an appointment, and they called me before I could even set my phone down.So excited to find a new vet that I love just as much as our old one.Kelsey B.Kelsey B. ★★★★★ Love this place! Been taking our cats and dog there for several years now and have always had a great experience. The place is very clean, the staff is friendly and they always take good care of my kids. We've had a few emergencies and they have been wonderful. If you are looking for a new vet I would highly recommend them.Lisa I.Lisa I. ★★★★★ Excellent customer serviceTracyTracy ★★★★★ We are incredibly grateful for the loving care Dr. Schram and the entire team at Hillsdale Vet gives to our fur babies - and actually gives to our whole family. We first came to them when our two kitties got sick within months of each other. The team had a very evidence based approach, gave us lots of space to make decisions, and when some of those decisions were extremely hard didn't show a shred of bias or judgement about the choices that were right for our family. We are so glad we found providers who have not only the hard skills to care for our pets, but also the soft skills to hold our experience during challenging times. We're thrilled to have all our animals being cared for by Hillsdale Vet.Rebecca Durlin S.Rebecca Durlin S. ★★★★★ Love this vet clinic! Everyone is really nice and they really seem to care about your pet.Michael P.Michael P. ★★★★★ Everyone here is so helpful and caring. Their vets are super knowledgeable and spend lots of time with each client making sure they answer all your questions and fully examine your pet. Recently they've started being more transparent with costs and presenting options based on cost which has been very helpful in reducing sticker shock and planning care.Leslie B.Leslie B. ★★★★★ They’re so great with my pup, I’ve sent everyone here who needs a vet! You can tell they really care about all the animals that come in and that my pup is well no matter what.Lauren H.Lauren H. ★★★★★ I love our vet! Saw us late noticeTennille G.Tennille G. ★★★★★ Never did I dream of such a pleasant experience during a vet appointment! Elizabeth, Mercy, Dr. Schram and techs were highly accommodating, reassuring and warm. It was my kitty's first ever vet experience (not to mention his first time ever outside the apartment) but the atmosphere instantly put us at ease. Elizabeth is so highly personable, polite and professional and creates the most favorable first impression you could ever hope for. Dr. Schram and her tech were so caring for our kitty boy; handling our baby like he was their own. I am so pleased with our experience. I will happily refer anyone to Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital; it feels like home 🙂MHMH ★★★★★ Amazing, caring staff.Deanna E.Deanna E. ★★★★★ The receptionists, techs, and vets are all so great and really want the best for each individual pet. Dr. Schram has been amazing for us through our shepherd's GI issues and with our new food, she seems to be improving at a better rate.Jewell A.Jewell A. ★★★★★ Hillsdale Clinic is wonderful. I’ve been taking my dog here for a little over a year now. They are usually able to get me I quickly, take their time with my dog and don’t charge my for products or medicine I don’t need. Awesome humans!Roshelle C.Roshelle C. ★★★★★ Good vetChris J.Chris J. ★★★★★ This is an amazing pet hospital. After taking our kitty to Dove Lewis twice (plus multiple phone calls) and they couldn’t find anything, Hillsdale vets found the problem immediately. Our kitty unfortunately passed that night, but it was not for Hillsdale’s lack of care or compassion. I just wish we had come here first!!Dawn J.Dawn J. ★★★★★ Grotbeck is really considerate and genuinely loves his job and loves animals. The receptionists and technicians I've spoken too are also so friendly and will make everyone feel comfortable.Sierra NSierra N ★★★★★ Between our dog and cat we've seen a number of the vets here. All have been quite good. Particularly with our dog who has allergies we want to treat.Vet techs have all been good and the assistants at the front counter are super sweet and helpful.Johanna B.Johanna B. ★★★★★ This is a smaller office. I brought my cat when he had a laceration under his arm and the wound needed stitches. They were able to fit me in same day on a Saturday, was so grateful. They took good care of my little guy and he is good as new. The waiting area is small so scared little kitties maybe exposed to large enthusiastic dogs. Just something to be aware of. I appreciated the beverage station.Leah G.Leah G. ★★★★★ Great staff and VetsNathan V.Nathan V. ★★★★☆ I feel like this place was a lot more personal with their clients before the pandemic, like everybody knew each other and their pets and we're happy to see you, but now that familiarity and accessibility seems to have waned. That's not to say they aren't good at what they do, my cats are as healthy as they can be, and in the end that's what you want.Bradley J. T.Bradley J. T. ★★★★☆ A bit expensive (even for a vet) and they don't seem very willing to work with payments. But the staff is wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable.Mandi P.Mandi P. ★★★★☆ I learned about my cat, he has herpes in his lungs, well need to take the light rays and point them towards hos lungs in an effort to get rid of the virus, apparently its called using frequencies and it works really well. Im excited to see the outcome, but itll be done at sea horse cove, for free.Lotus C.Lotus C. ★★★★☆ Fast friendly service. Good atmosphere, and the people really care.Mackenzy Wonder (.Mackenzy Wonder (.js_loader

Dr Shaun and his staff were amazing. They took excellent care of our cat and our family. I would come in with my hands full, juggling the cat and two kids and they would open the door for me, engage the kids and take the cat all with a genuine sense of caring. Dr Shaun went far beyond my expectations in the care of our cat and we have seen a rejuvenation in our 13 year old cat as a result. He once again has the spunk and energy that we have not seen in years. I definitely recommend everyone to get care for their pets at the Hillsdale Veterinary Hospital.

Hillsdale Vet is one of the nicest, most genuine clinics I have been to. Not only do they get to know you on a personal level, they don’t try and sell you on products or vaccines you don’t need. They are honest and truthful about what is best for your pet and Dr. Shaun is amazing. I can’t say enough good things about this place!

Ashlyn L.

I feel like they’re honest and have integrity-which is one of the most important things you look for in any interaction. My cat has a bad ticker to begin with and then ate something random. Dr Vaniman took the time to talk to me about what his options were when it was clear that he had a bowel obstruction. I opted for the surgery (which went just fine in spite of his heart condition) and now my little fuzzball is back to his old tricks.
