Hillcrest Animal Hospital has been serving the Victoria Crossroads area since 1953.

We are unique in that we offer all the services of a small, quality neighborhood vet while providing state of the art diagnostic equipment and the latest in surgery techniques.

Due to our full laboratory, pharmacy, digital X-ray, surgical expertise and laser treatment, we are able to perform most diagnostic and treatment procedures within our hospital resulting in faster results and lower cost.


Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our staff will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us at 361-573-6131 so that we may advise you on how to properly handle the situation until you make it through our doors.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and technicians who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to reach out to us so that we may assist you.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our staff will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
