About us

Since 1956, Hillview Veterinary Clinic has been a trusted source for comprehensive animal healthcare services. In 1994, the practice was taken over by Dr. Joshua M. Halper, who has worked hard to keep the same dedication to delivering exceptional veterinary care that the practice was founded on by the late Dr. Fred Goldstein. While many things have changed over the years, the one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing the best medical, dental and surgical care while also offering superior service to our valued clients.

Hillview Veterinary Clinic is a full service veterinary practice offering a wide range of comprehensive animal healthcare services, from wellness and preventative medicine to advanced diagnostics to routine and complex surgery, and much more. We also offer boarding services in our state-of-the-art Bed & Biscuit boarding facility as well as full grooming services to keep your pet looking great.

At Hillview Veterinary Clinic, we understand the important role your pet plays in your family. That’s why we work so hard to treat each and every patient that we serve as if they were our own. Our caring, compassionate and highly skilled staff of veterinary professionals is here to assist with all of your pet’s needs, and we hope to see you and your animal companion in our office soon!
