Welcome to Hillcrest Animal Hospital

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

Currently, Hillcrest Animal Hospital employs 4 veterinarians and 14 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.

Hillcrest Animal Hospital is honoured to be named as the Platinum (1st Place) Winner, Veterinary Clinics category of the 2020 Belleville CommunityVotes awards! In addition to this, our practice was given the Trentonian Readers’ Choice Favourite Veterinarian award for two years in a row. We are humbled to receive these accolades through the years and strive to live up to them each day.
