Preventative health care is the first step to ensuring that your pet lives a long, healthy life.  Annual comprehensive physical exams allow our veterinarians to detect early, subtle changes to your pet’s overall health. Pets often do not display outward signs of illness until the condition is advanced.

Our surgical and dental patients receive fluid support and full anesthetic monitoring (blood pressure, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, ECG, temperate) by a veterinary technician throughout their procedure.  Our dental procedures include full mouth digital dental radiographs on every patient.

We are able to offer same day, in clinic bloodwork analysis through our Idexx In House Laboratory System for sick and injured patients. Non-urgent or advanced bloodwork panels are sent to Idexx Reference Laboratory.  Our partnership with Idexx also gives us access to a wide variety of veterinary specialists for consultations on how to best diagnose and treat our patients.

Wellness exams are done annually or biannually in order to establish a healthy foundation of information specific to your pet. They are also a great way to detect and treat abnormalities sooner as well as routinely monitor your pet(s) over time.

What our clients say about us....


I can’t say enough great things about Akin Hills. They are always easy to schedule with and the care that the staff and Dr. Leslie gives to our pets has been amazing! We had to put our our dog down this last year and even though it was a very sad time for our family Akin Hills was so comforting and made the experience peaceful for not only my husband and I but our children as well. We now have a new puppy that we have been bringing here. They are always so responsive to our questions and you can feel that the safety of their customers and staff has been their top concern during the pandemic. I can’t recommend Akin Hills enough!!
