I saw Dr. McCoy the other day. He was short-staffed that day. At present my dog seems very lethargic and I don't understand why, so I called the office this a.m. and I was offered an appointment at 9:30, I will be seeing them at 10:30, my request. I will rate this business on their ability to get me in quickly for now.

Sir, I know I paid my bill, but sincerely I don't know how to repay you for what you did for my dog. When I leave my house on my way to your clinic is like going to my second home. As soon I have pulled in your location, my pets somehow know they'll be okay, and better they do get.
Thanks from Juan and Sammy and Faith

Dr. McCoy and the entire staff at Hillside Animal Hospital are the BEST! We wouldn't take our fur family (4 dogs & 1 cat) anywhere else. Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely compassionate. Hillside Animal Hospital is great with the routine, everyday visit, as well as the unexpected emergency visits. We are never rushed, and Dr. McCoy always makes sure that we fully understand any treatment plans before we leave. Chrisy or Cathy always call the next day to make sure everything is going well. Dr. McCoy and the staff truly provide a level of service that is hard to find these days.

I have had dogs all my life. When I moved to Spring Hill I used a few different Vets, but definately will stay with Dr. McCoy. He & his staff are very caring. He truly loves his patents & is very precise in making a diagnosis. I believe besides being expert in his field it is important that he truly loves animals. I have had Vets play with human emotion to get more money out of a sick but terminal pet. I read one review which said he was pricey, well guess what health care is expensive & I find his prices equal if not better than any other Vet in the area.
Thank you for being there for me & LuLu Belle when we need you!!!

My Shih Tzu loves to go into the office. She starts pawing the seat wanting to get out whenever we pull in. The Dr and his Staff makes over her which she loves. They are concerned about her health and make follow-up calls to see how she's doing. I have been using this Dr since moving into the area 2 years ago. Highly recommend !!

Dr McCoy has treated my baby girl Bandi since he moved into this area very well.He has done surgery with a very good recovery time. I would recommend him anytime. The girls in the office are very polite and helpful when I go in or on the phone.

Prices are outrageous!! They don't even try to save you money when you have multiple pets. Trying to make an appointment when you have a problem is horrible.

We have a pet that we call our baby, therefore, when the time came for us to find a good animal hospital for our baby, we wanted to make sure that she would be going to a Veterinary that we could trust. DR. McCoy has been her Dr. for several years and we are very happy with him. DR. McCoy takes the time to explaine everything and shows professionalism. He makes sure our pet gets the best of care. The staff are very friendly and show they care also.

We have been going to Hillside for about 7 years now. We have 4 cats. The staff there is wonderful, Dr. McCoy is very good at explaining things and taking care of our cats. They make follow up calls to see how we are doing. I would reccomend Hillside very highly.

We have been useing Hillside for years, we have used other Vets in the area in the past, but they don't compare to the service you get at Hillside. The staff is excellent, they let you know the price before they begin. Dr. McCoy is great he explains everything. They even call to check up on the pet, whish my Dr. was that careing.

I have been going to Hillside for over 12 years. I had a problem in the past with the previous owners, getting in my Golden Retriever for treatment, so I had to go elsewhere. Now I have 2 greyhounds and went back when Dr. Mc Coy took over. Now I never have a problem getting them in to see the Dr. whenever I need to. He explains everything, and the staff follows up to see how my dogs are doing. The Dr. and his staff are great and always available for any problems that arise. I would highly recommend Dr. Mc Coy to anyone looking for a vet.

We have been taking our puppy for about 1 year now and always greeted with a friendly smile and Dr. is always thorough and takes all the time we need for our puppy. We Never feel rushed. Never have a problem getting an immediate appointment! He just had a little mass removed and it is healing beautifully and they took such good care of him. Any time we bring in our puppy they always follow up with a phone call asking how is he doing. You just know they have a love for our puppy. You will be very pleased
p.s. love that he has Saturday hours too

I have been a client of Dr. McCoy's for a couple of years. I have found he and his staff to be quite courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. I recently was discharged from the hospital and upon returning home noticed my dog had what appeared to be a skin infection. Unable to come in to the clinic because of my condition, I emailed Dr. McCoy a picture of the area, he diagnosed it, and brought the medicine to my home. Because it required me to mix water with the solution and dunk my dog in it, he actually did it for me so that I would know how to do it. The home visit and medication were provided at no cost to me. It's nice to know that there are still good doctors out there. I highly recommend Dr. McCoy and Hillside Clinic.

We fully credit Hillside and Dr. McCoy, Dr. Doverspike, Leslie, Chrissie and Cathy for their amazing care of our Maltese Chewy during his extreme renal distress. His numbers couldn't possibly have been any worse without passing away but Hillside never gave up on us. Chewy is now thriving and his kidney levels are fantastic. Best about Doc McCoy is his willingness to try new things. We worked with Doc McCoy as well as Dr. Wen of Hampton Veterinary Clinic in Speonk, NY and combined traditional western medicine with eastern herbal supplementation. Chewy had a really bad prognosis, especially at 12 1/2 years old but he is now thriving and seems better than ever.

I fully recommend Hillside and Doc McCoy and staff to all who are in dire need OR just need regular maintenance. You can quote me on that.

I just had a very pleasant experience. I got a call today from the vet staff to see how my dog was doing. I've gone to other clinics before and never felt that the staff actually cared about my pet. I would take them to other vets, they would talk to me, wave their hands over my pets and usually give me some pills. I never felt that they took the time to help me or my pet. At hillside Dr. McCoy listened to me, talked to me, did an exam, and talked to me about the tests that could be run to actually fix my dog. I've never had a vet actually talk to me as an equal and as if I was as intelligent as he was. He made me feel like a human and a good pet owner. I will continue to take my pets there and wouldnt consider anyone else. Everyone there is great and I would recommend them to anyone.

I cant say enough good things about the staff and doctors at Hillside Animal Hospital. We have been taking our pets to them before the new management change and can see all the great changes that have occurred. The doctors take a lot more time examining the pet, explain everything what they are thinking, and help guide us in making decisions about our pets care. No longer do you have to wait in a crowded lobby with people looking for the cheapest vet in town. Gone are the days of sitting next to a disgusting poorly cared for pet who is looking for the cheapest vet in town. I had many friends that frequented Hillside only because the previous owner was cheap and charged for almost nothing....in return that was the quality of vet care that we received. I can appreciate the change. The new doctors are kind and tell you exactly what needs to be done to help your pet....if thats what you want to do. There is a vet out there for everyone....The previous review doesnt reflect my experience or anyone that I know and sounds biased.

When Dr Jones was there it was a great vets office he was good since McCoy took over they have lost over half of their clients and staff. He over charges big time for nothing took my cat to him for antibiotics that Dr Jones had given before he ran a bunch of tests without letting you know how much it costs and wormed her to the tune of 500.00 she was not there for any of that i would not recommend him at all he is in it for the money and not the pet

We make every attempt to satisfy each and every one of our clients. Unfortunately this is not always possible. We attempt to keep our prices as reasonable as possible but price increases are a necessity of life. All clients are given estimates for any services outside of the initial exam. This gives the client the opportunity to review the plan and come up with a course of action that is acceptable. Advances in veterinary care are made daily and hospitals have to stay current in order to provide the most modern care for all of our patients. We now offer many services, products, and levels of care that were not available with the previous owner. The added equipment, knowledge, testing, and staff allow us to provide some of the best care possible in Spring Hill. Too often the public confuses "cheap prices" with reputable quality veterinary care......often unfortunately with disasterous results.

My family is new to the area and we were referred to this hospital by a neighbor. I am glad they did. The doctors are very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions during our visit. One of the reasons that we chose them is because they do laser surgery. The clinic is clean, the staff is friendly (especially Leslie), the doctors are warm and caring, and they adopt kittens and help them find good homes. It is good too see that there are still good vets that care about pets and their people!!!!!

I took my dog in to get his ears looked at. He was shaking his head, scratching at his ears so I knew there was something going on. The vet took a culture of both ears to examine it under the microscope. Well, there was a malfunction in the microscope so he couldn't tell what correct meds to give him to cure his ear problem. He started asking me about what other animals I owned (2 cats and 3 parrots) and proceeded to lecture me about not having my indoor cats on a heartworm preventive. Um, I was NOT there for my cats, I was there for my DOG! I am not a first time pet owner (have had animals my since I was born) and they spoke to me like I didn't know what I was doing with my pets. I will never go back to Hillside Animal Hospital, I will stick with Three Oaks whom I have been going to for 8 years. I will drive the extra 30 minutes for excellent service and courteous staff!

We make every attempt to satisfy each and every one of our clients. Unfortunately this is not always possible. During the course of business there are situations and equipment problems that are out of our control. We are concerned not only about the pets that are brought to our office but also about any others that clients own that may be in need of veterinary care. We hope that you continue to enjoy your vet of eight years and hope that if you ever need any immediate care that you will consider stopping by again. Thank you. Management.

I have been in spring hill since 2005 and have tried several vets before going to hillside. my collie started losing weight and vomiting. i went to several vets in spring hill, new port richie, weeki wachi, brooksville, and tarpon. after wasting a lot of money and time i was always given a shot and pills. several vets took films and bloodwork but nothing helped. i visited hillside animal hospital and was greeted warmly. after talking to the doctor and going over all that had been done he sent blood to the lab and diagnosed inflammatory bowel disease. we put jakc on a special diet. we started treating jack (my collie) and he is a whole new dog. i wish i had gone there first. dr. mccoy and dr doverspike are the greatest. the staff members are friendly and know their stuff too. i will continue to recommend hillside ah to everyone that i meet. As a pet owner for close to 40 years now i value and understand that good veterinary care is expensive. I have run into many vets over the years that offer basement bottom prices for substandard care. The vets there are knowledgeable, honest, caring, and the staff is terrific. If you want cheap prices, cheap services, and substandard care then this is not your hospital. The vets and staff there are terrific and i wouldn't think of going anywhere else!!!
