Pleasant Hills Pet Hospital (VetCor) - Pleasant Hills Veterinary Hospital-Good To Our Pets
Veterinary Care - Compliment
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA -- We've been using Pleasant Hills Pet Hospital (owned and operated by VetCor-350 Lincoln Place, Hingham, MA-a network of 65 veterinary hospitals) for our animals health care for around a decade. Their prices have remained reasonable, the staff and doctor turnover is low, they have been consistently good with their care & information and they've provided emergency service, outside of normal business hours, when we needed it. The staff and doctors have always been compassionate and have taken a personal interest in our pets well-being.
When one of our cats was ill and looked like he was going to cash in, the doctor discovered a small infection between his toes that had gotten into his blood stream. They put a good dose of antibiotic in him and the tough old SOB lived to be 18. Our dog was 11 and found to have cancer behind her right ear and the doctor (always the same one) gave information on treatment options, ranging from a dicey operation and radiation to maintaining a regimen of pain pills (although we were able to discern that there was little or no pain associated with the condition). We opted for the pills and she was able to make it one more year until I found that the tumor was inhibiting her ability to walk and eat. I had to take her in at 7 AM, meet the vet and see her off.
They refused to charge me for the emergency service. We currently trust our Manx's health care to them and they continue to do a fine job for us. I just had the fat (he's apparently 'obese') furball in for his annual rabies and exam and they gave us their usual good service. All in all, we're pretty happy with these folks.
