Home to Hilltop
All the staff at Hilltop Vets are committed to making your visit to the vets as pleasant an experience for you and your pet as possible. However we do understand that a trip to the vets can be stressful for owners and pets alike.
If your pet does get nervous during their vet visits then please inform reception, when booking your appointment, so we can tailor our services to meet your needs and minimise stress.
This might include giving you an appointment during a quieter period, or finding you a room to wait in without other animals present. For pets who need extra support we can prescribe calming or sedative medication to give at home before your visit.
If you would prefer us to come to you, please speak to one of our receptionists about a home visit.
TOP TIPS FOR YOUR TRIP
Use a crate or cage to transport your cat, or other small pet, safely. Dogs should be on leads.
Desensitising your pet to their crate is a great idea. Clients always tell us that their pets run a mile as soon as they see ‘the crate’. Try getting it out a few days before your visit, or even feeding your pet their favourite food in the crate for a few days, before your trip to see us. That way your pet will associate the crate with positive experiences.
