Word Of Mouth
Fairly recently "Lama" (our family's dog) was brutally attacked and mauled by three other dogs. This emergency (we were very grateful that they were able to see him on such short notice) was much more serious than the annual checkups and minor ailments that we previously had our pets treated for at the Huon Valley Veterinary Hospital. And I must say that we were impressed by the medical attention that Lama received. He underwent 2 hours of major surgery and came out like a champ. The veterinary doctor was extremely thorough with her treatment and took the time to explain the procedures that she used. She also took the time to advise us on the after surgery care that would be required for a full recovery. I was also very pleased with the genuine care and concern that the entire staff of nurses, assistants, and reception as they looked after Lama through our follow up visits. I am happy to say that Lama is well on his way to recovery. We believe that the highly professional staff at Huon Valley Veterinary Hospital are more than capable of handling both minor and major injuries (and ailments). We will be happy to entrust our pets to their care in the years to come.
Huon Valley Veterinary Hospital has taken care of our whippet cross ‘Tilley‘ since she was 8 weeks old with health checks, sterilisation, vaccinations etc and we have always been happy with their service and attention.
Recently, while we were in Melbourne and Tilley was in the care of a friend , she was hit by a car and we had a call to tell us she had been badly injured and was at the after hours emergency vet hospital. The next day she was moved to HVVH and assessed. The vet called us in Melbourne and explained clearly the problems, risk and care she needed. She was operated on and now, nearly 4 weeks on she is well on her way to recovery due to the brilliant and devoted staff at HVVH. Thank you Kim and your colleagues for the genuine caring you all showed towards her. It made the difficult process easier for us as well. After our experience we would recommend your practice to everyone.

I took my dog Alec to Huon Valley Veterinary Hospital and from initial consultation to outcome they were fantastic. Their obvious care and concern for his health was very apparent from the outset. My initial contact was Kim and she took care of Alec as if he was her own dog or that of a friend. She was wonderful. Their confidence and calm really helped me feel at ease. I couldn't recommend them more highly. Thanks for everything.
