Our Philosophy

A small practice, doing big medicine…

As a lifelong owner of companion animals, I understand and appreciate that special relationship that pet owners have with their pets. It is commonly referred to as the human-animal bond. Whether the pet is a dog, cat, lizard or bird, their presence, personality, and peculiarity enriches our lives and contributes to our emotional and physical well being. At South Hills Veterinary Services, recognizing the importance of the mutual benefits that are derived from the pet-owner relationship, we are driven to deliver the highest quality of healthcare for your pet, in a manner that is compassionate and personable. From longstanding conventional treatments to cutting-edge technologies and therapies, our goal is to provide the best possible care, because we know that your well being depends on your pet’s well being. So don’t let the size of our clinic fool you… we may be a small practice, but we do big medicine… because we appreciate the magnitude of what is at stake.
