Home Visits


Most treatment is best carried out at the surgery, where the staff, equipment and medications are readily available to provide the most appropriate care.  If you have concerns about your journey, or what to expect when you arrive, please see our Home to Hilltop’ guide. At Hilltop we also understand that there will be times that your pet’s needs are best met by a vet or nurse on a home visit.

Even though we try to make the experience of visiting Hilltop as pleasant as possible, some individuals can find the unfamiliar surroundings or the journey to us stressful.  Sometimes we may recommend a visit in order to assess your pet in his/her normal environment. We also recognise that for some clients travel is difficult or even impossible and if this is the case please discuss your needs with us such that we can plan ahead to be there for your pet for routine care and in the event of an emergency.

Please call the surgery to arrange a house visit. We will try to accommodate your needs but please be aware that visits do take our lovely staff away from the pets at the surgery and we may not be able to offer routine home visits during busy periods.
