I recently took a stray cat to HV to check for a microchip as they are right around the corner from me. The women at the counter knew immediately who I was (I had called earlier). They took him back and determined he was not microchipped. They also told me he was neutered (thus he has had shots) and about one year old. They took down my information just in case they found the owner and gave me suggestions on where to post ads. They were extremely helpful and friendly. I have not taken my house cat there, but plan to do so the next time he is in need of a checkup!
So mad – I have two dogs that I boarded at Hidden Valley for 7 days. I picked them up today and one had an infection on either side of his mouth by his canine teeth. It looks like it came from a muzzle or something like that which they swear they don't use. When we took him back to show them the blisters, they said it must have just come from a food bowl and made us pay for antibiotics to treat it! They didn't offer any free medication or even admit to fault! You'd think after paying them $371 for a week that they would at least offer to pay for the damage they did to my dog. I should have known better then to go back after both dogs came back with fleas the last time. I have learned my lesson now!
Excdellent cat care – My friend recommended this hospital for my cat Amber, when he was deathly ill. Dr. Valeneesi is an excellent vet. She saved Mr. Amber's life. I highly recommend this hospital for your pets. The staff is very caring and friendly. They even put fuzzy mats on the cold metal examining tables for the cats to come out of their carriers onto. Amber was very sick and he had lost 2 !/2 lbs. She ran a zillion tests and did surgery on his mouth. Sent him home with pain meds, antibiotics and appetite stimulant (even special food.) He recovered quite nicely and is back to his normal playful self. For all the work and tests that were done, I felt confident in their ability to cure him and their level of care and concern. Their prices are very reasonable. I'm sure the bill would have been much higher at the hospital I used to take him to. They even let me set up a payment plan for some of the cost, which I gladly honored.
Dr. V kept me informed and updated on every step of his care the entire time. I believe that I have found a new hospital for all four of my cats.
Best vets in the area and they love my dogs – I love Hidden Valley Animal Hospital. After many other vet hospitals in Raleigh and the "cold" or "charge me out the wazoo" treatment, I stumbled on HVAH. Dr. Szabo has treated me and my animals with respect and dignity since the first day I set foot in the building. I have always felt comfortable there, and I always feel like my dog(s) are very important and special to him. He listens to me and gives the best care I can imaging, and their prices are more affordable. It is a clean, well maintained business with staff that always welcomes me in the door. Their groomers are the best and my dog always looks amazing when I pick her up. I would give this vet 5 stars and I recommend them all the time.
Average at Best – I have been taking my animals to Hidden Valley for 3 years now, but I do not recommend this place. I am currently in the process of transferring my animals to a new veterinary clinic, after multiple problems with this vet. The staff and doctors mean well here, but they do not make me feel confident in their abilities as doctors at all, particularly in regards to something ans important to me as my pets. The doctors at Hidden Valley sincerely lack listening skills, and tend to believe that the owner is incompetent at pet care, which in my case could not be further from the truth. I cannot help but believe that there are many times that my animals could have avoided unnecessary pain and frustration if the doctors at this vet had LISTENED to my description of a problem, rather than assume they knew what happened.
Again, as a whole, not the vet that I trust my animals with.

Terrific care! – After trying EVERY vet in Raleigh, Hidden Valley is the only vet I will go to now. Dr. Lapham has been our vet for 9 years now . He is very kind, knowledgeable and cares immensely for each pet. He has given the best care to my 12 year old dog!
