We had to come to the rough decision of euthanizing our long time family member. He was over 16 yrs and had grown quite uncomfortable with several health issues. We felt it was time but the decision was so hard to make!!! We choose Hiawassee Animal hospital and we were so glad we did. The entire staff was so kind and compassionate! They helped ease our minds and emotions! It went well, fast, and peaceful. I highly commended them for your pet's needs! Thank you to the entire staff!
Kind & Compassionate

Came across Hiawassee when a bunny we purchased from a pet store became sick a day after we brought her home. Hiawassee was the only vet that can treat exotic pets. Dr. Alfozo was so kind also with a way to deliver the news when it is not good. We adopted 2 new bunnies, I take them both to Hiawassee, I also have 2dogs that I moved to this location. From the time of finding Hiawasse to a month later. The staff feels like family. Dr. Palm is always concerned about the well being of all four legged pets. To the ladies at the front always giving a warm greetings.

Outstanding pet care! My furbabies get great care with love and concern there. Even my very mean cat gets GREAT care and that is not found to often in this area. One other plus is that they do not charge huge amounts, they are very affordable!

We have been going here for a year now, and always have good experiences. My special needs staffordshire terrier always gets lots of love from the staff - can always get worked in when we need it & pricing is very reasonable. My family also takes their pets here and they were very compassionate for end of life care.
