About Us PhotoAbout Us Photo

Built from the ground up by Dr. Peterson, Hill Country Animal Hospital exists to advocate for all animals and to provide for their care. We prepare our staff with the knowledge and skills required to deliver the best care possible while ensuring they are equipped with the latest medical technologies. We also recognize that the best means to protect your pet’s health and wellbeing as well as to keep the lifetime cost of care to a minimum is through the judicious practice of preventative medicine.

This is why we offer wellness packages for every age and stage of your animal’s life as well as breed-specific programs tailored to your pet’s unique needs. We also offer preventative dental care, microchip lost pet ID, acupuncture and integrative medicine, thorough wellness exams, nutritional and behavioral counseling, as well as access to the top specialists in our area.

Should your pet fall ill or become injured, we are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical issues. We maintain a complete lab onsite, advanced diagnostics, and a complete, modern surgical unit. Our close working relationships with local specialists mean that your pet receives timely and appropriate care. Once a diagnosis is made, regular communication between our facility and the specialist ensures continuity of care between the two practitioners. We even have specialists available to offer advanced diagnostic services and orthopedic surgeries at our facility so that your pet can be treated in familiar surroundings.
