Hilton Vet Hospital was established more than 40 years ago as a small animal clinic that served all the areas in Beaconsfield, Hilton, Hamilton Hill, White Gum Valley, Fremantle, Coogee, Samson and Kardinya.
In 2008 Dr Heinrich Van Niekerk took over. Dr Heinrich and his team quickly grew the small clinic to the point where we needed to expand. In 2012 we moved to our current location in 294 South Street, Hilton. This new building is a purposefully designed vet hospital that provides all the facilities in which we can provide the best service that your pets deserve. The hospital has a dedicated cat ward, exotic pet ward and dog ward. It also has two consultation rooms, a preparation and dental room, sterile surgery and X-ray room and a laboratory. We do much of our own laboratory blood tests, microscope work and many other tests in our own laboratory.
We love to do the health care for cats, dogs, birds, rabbits and guinea pigs as well as other exotic pets and wild life. We have been working with Native Arc and injured wild life since 2009. We are very grateful that we can be involved in helping our wild life.
The owner, Dr Heinrich, graduated as a vet from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in 1991 and finished his honours degree the next year. As a child, his dad taught him to love and respect all creatures great and small. They had dogs, birds in aviaries, snakes, rats, tortoises, and bantam chickens that him and his dad showed and won many prizes with. He also developed a great love for the African bush and wild life. It was just natural for Heinrich to go and study veterinary science. He loved every bit of his studies and after graduation he opened his first vet clinic in South Africa. After eight years of running this practice him and his wife Cathy sold and moved to Australia with their two young children. After six and a half years of working for Baldivis vets, Dr Heinrich got the itch to run his own practice again. It was then that they bought Hilton Vet Hospital in 2008.
Hilton Vet Hospital only employ competent vets and vet nurses who are well trained, dedicated to their work and have a passion for pets.
At Hilton Vet Hospital, we continue to strive for excellence and improve our services to you and your pets. Your input as pet owner is valuable, and together we can have lifelong joy through our pets.
We aim to help you have lifelong joy through your pets.
Our pets are part of our family and deserve to be treated with the love and respect that make the bond between us come to its full potential. We have the facility, knowledge and love to give your pets the best possible health care to keep them in top condition and allow them to still be healthy at their old age.
They deserve the best because they always give their best to you as their pet parent. Our love and dedication to your pets’ wellbeing is what motivates us to go to work every day. To see pets regain their health after disease or injury, or just to know that we have contributed to their ongoing health, is a reward that keeps us going.
Leaving pets with us and intrusting them in our hands is a big step of faith for pet parents. This is something we don’t take for granted and we realise our big responsibility with your pets.
At Hilton Vet Hospital, we guarantee the comfort of your pet while in our care. If at any time you recon our care is less than what you expected we are willing to refund your hospital fee for the day.
