Specialists for Every Situation

Hill Country Animal Hospital’s mission is to provide your pet with the best care possible. Sometimes, that means referring your furry companion to a specialist outside of our hospital. Specialists are experts in their area of veterinary medicine and can provide detailed, cutting-edge information about your pet’s health.

To ensure your pet receives services in a timely manner, we make sure there is frequent communication between our hospital, the specialist, and you. This involves sending medical documents to the specialist, as well as requesting important information such as test results and recommendations, from the specialists. We work hard to ensure high-quality care for your pet throughout the process, whether those services are from us or from the specialists.
