Client Testimonials

Debra Goonrey
Owner of “Daisy”, a Silky Terrier following Cruciate and Luxating Patella Repair.

“Julie explained she was going to perform the surgery using a different procedure from the other Vet hospital Daisy had been to, which was good being that this was the third time. We were given an estimate with a cost range - we were happy as there wouldn't be a shock if cost went higher. The morning after surgery we received a phone call with an update, Julie spoke about how the procedure went, Daisy's recovery and a plan.
Daisy is like a new dog....100% better, happier, more comfortable.
The wound healed really well. She had internal sutures which healed really well, which was a great relief compared to other surgeries where she had external sutures that she could chew at.”

Kristen Robinson
Owner of “Bupkiss”, a Bulldog following Cruciate Repair.

“When Julie diagnosed Bupkuss with a torn cruciate I was worried, but with Julie's thorough explanation I felt comfortable in the knowledge he was in good hands.
On the day of the surgery I was given a progress phone call, then once the surgery was over I was sent a text. Our follow up visits were informative & thorough. As both of my dogs have required Cruciate surgery I have witnessed them both go from being sad, sore & lame pre surgery to them both having a new lease on life. After their initial recovery period and rehabilitation they now both run around with absolutely no signs of soreness what so ever. Wounds have healed nicely. I cannot speak highly enough about Heights Pet Hospital!. From the very first visit, Julie , Myffawny and all of the staff have been professional and friendly, they go that extra mile when it comes to my dogs and that means the world to me. I have used other vets in the past and have never experienced this level of care and professionalism, not only do they care for the pet but they care about the owner as well.”
