The facility involves a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray and ultrasound capabilities, as well as, a closely supervised hospitalization area.

At Mountaintop Animal Hospital we try to provide not only sound advice, but also the best veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.

  • I would not recommend this business
  • close
  • not friendly, does not appreciate repeat business.

My dog receives a heartworm dose every month,12 months a year. I provide this faithfully since my dog is a very important member of my family. I was told by the person at the front desk they would not sell me the heartworm medication since they only showed only one 6 months supply purchased. I informed them that my other dog had passed away and I was using the remainder of his supply. She still would not sell me the heartworm medication. I will now find to a more friendly clinic, even if I have the test done again.
