Welcome to Hillcrest Animal Hospital in Trenton

Hillcrest Animal Hospital has been serving the pets and people of the region of Quinte West for over 4 decades. It was established in 1971 by Dr. Jack Lange, in what was then known as Trenton. Initially, Hillcrest Animal Hospital was a large animal only practice and then slowly began serving both large and small animals in the area to now being a small animal only practice.

By the early 1980’s Hillcrest Animal Hospital had moved across the street and a few hundred yards west into a larger building in its present-day location. In Early 2010 the practice began the physical transformation that culminated in an expansion and remodeling of the old building to its current state-of-the-art appearance.

Currently, Hillcrest Animal Hospital employs 4 veterinarians and 11 staff members housed within a 6,000 square foot facility dedicated to the care of pets in the Quinte area. All aspects of small animal medical and surgical practice are performed within the facility. Please feel free to drop by and see our hospital. We are immensely proud of what we have accomplished and believe that the care we offer to our patients is second-to-none.

My wonderful wife who works with many rescue groups including Save-My-Tail, “volunteered” us to be a foster home for the little man.
