They have a wonderful, very helpful staff. I was very pleased with the care and service that my animals received. Dr. Hittner and his staff did a super job of saving my pups from parvo. I would recommend them at the highest level!

I’ve been taking my Jack Russel terrier to Dr. Hittner for years. Truly loving, quality, professional care. I highly recommend!

Couldn’t ask for a better staff or customer service! Dr. Hittner keeps up with all the newest medicine and is very kind and loving to our dogs (they all are). He is very thorough when explaining recommended procedures and never rushes us, but stays on schedule so we never have to wait past our appointment time, which is rare for a vet office in my experience.
