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!!
