I took my dog in a few weeks back for stitches. With all these storms we are having, our animals suffer the most. When I brought in my disressed pup they immidietly saw to us. I commend them on their proffessional, friendliness. I take all my animals to Hilton Vets and I have never looked for another Vet since I moved to KZN.

Hilton Veterinary Hospital, where you and your dog or cat are our top priority.

Hilton Veterinary Hospital offers general veterinary care to dogs and cats, as well as specialist veterinary medicine, intensive care and theriogenology (breeding) referral services to all the other veterinarians in KwaZulu Natal.

In order to do this, the hospital has invested in appropriate premises, medication, equipment and staff. All patients are monitored 24 hours a day. Cats are kept in their own wards, separate from the dogs. Animals with infectious diseases are kept in wards separate from the other patients.

The hospital is Hilton compliant, meaning we have a 3 phase generator which enables us to continue functioning normally during power outages.

Veterinarians from Hilton Veterinary Hospital are involved in continuing education for other veterinarians at a National and International level.

Fees are charged at SAVC (South African Veterinary Council) rates and you are welcome to discuss cost estimates with us.

Trauma & Envenomation

The Veterinarians at the Hilton Veterinary Hospital are experienced in trauma management. This includes car accidents, dog fights and wildlife induced injuries. Sufficient on sight anti-venom, and 24 hour monitoring, treatment and ventilation equipment make Hilton Veterinary Hospital the place of choice for the treatment of small animal snake bite injuries in the Midlands.

Babesia kills more vaccinated dogs and cats in the Midlands than any other infectious disease. The veterinarians at Hilton Veterinary Hospital are experienced and have the equipment, blood product and supportive therapy facilities for treating simple and complicated tick bite fever cases. We stock a vaccine aimed at eliminating the seriousness of the infectious disease.

The veterinarians and nurses at HVH are sensitive to pain in animals. Combinations of proven painkillers are used including local anaesthetics, various central active painkillers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories. Pain control is important for older animals with arthritis. Where animals are not eating feeding tubes are quickly placed in order to aid their recovery and meet their nutritional requirements

Our nurses clinic offers free health care programme advice, nail clipping, weight clinics, nutrition advice, blood pressure assessment and dental check ups.

Please make use of our nurses clinic to design a complete health care programme appropriate for your pet. This should include vaccination, flea and tick control, sterilisation, oral care and nutrition.

Various cancers are diagnosed and where possible treated at HVH with combinations of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. Importantly the pet owner remains in charge and only animals seen to benefit from their therapy are kept in the programme. Pain control, nausea control and appetite are priorities.
