Read What Our Clients Say

  • "When we first rescued our border collie, we selected Highlands Pet Hospital because of their reputation and we have not been disappointed! Rod and his excellent staff have gone so far to caution us about exercises and games which can lead to health issues. The staff are superb and always keen to spend time with the Jyp when we come to visit. This level of personal care and attention is what I appreciate most from Highland’s Pet Hospital."
