Testimonials

Hear From Happy Pet Owners

  • Took very good care of my Syrian hamster and got her in immediately when I called as a new patient. They got multiple office opinions on her illness. I felt very at ease with their recommendation.

  • Hartwood has taken great care of my Boston Terrier and she loves the entire staff! You would never know that nearly every time she's there she gets a shot or a poke! Cannot recommend these people enough!

    - Heather C.
  • Love this animal hospital. We've known Dr. Jewett since she practiced at Woodbridge Animal hospital when we had our Shepherd. Grateful she opened the practice here right at home. We took a break from our last dog and have gone back with our new puppy. Staff is awesome, always willing to answer questions and care as much as the animal owners. Will come here as long as the practice stands.

  • We've been long time customers of HAH, but they have become a second family to us and our animals. They are very thorough and professional, but also warm and loving to our pets. We go there for grooming, as well as veterinary care, and they never disappoint us.
