Some Recent Remarks About HVC
“Dr. Gormley and the rest of the staff at Highland Veterinary Clinic have been taking care of my family’s pets for more than two decades. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to look after them. I truly appreciate the way everyone there knows that my dogs are part of my family and treat them accordingly – with compassion, expertise and professionalism. From routine shots and wellness care to laser treatments to fix a serious ear infection and orthopedic surgery that helped one of my fur babies walk on four legs again, Highland Vet gives my dogs the care they need to live healthy, happy lives. I can’t emphasize enough how much my family appreciates everyone there!” Trista N. April 20, 2016
"Highland Veterinary Clinic provides expert care to sick and injured pets that find themselves at our shelter. They are never viewed as "shelter pets" and are treated with the same compassion that owned pets receive. We are thankful to work with a caring staff that is always available to answer general questions, or see a pet in need."--Alisa W., Superintendent; Evansville Animal Care & Control
“Dr Gormley and his staff are THE BEST! They have cared for my dogs and cats for several years now-- I wouldn't take them anywhere else. They are always friendly and caring-- especially in difficult situations, like the death of a pet. Dr Gormley always knows what to do-- quickly making a diagnosis and treatment plan-- I'll be forever grateful to him for saving my Dachshund's eye after a serious injury!” Gerard M. August 20, 2016
“Another Chance for Animals has worked with Highland Veterinary Clinic for over 6 years. Their professional courteous staff has made quite the impact on fosters and adopters alike. We hear often how much fosters and adopters like Dr. Gormley and staff. Many fosters have switched their personal animals over to Highland, while many adopters start using Highland Vet for their adopted animal. We appreciate the practice understanding that we are a non-profit with many animals, and their passion for helping us keep costs down and helping the animals in our community. With their help animal welfare in Evansville is changing. It is becoming more common to see well-vetted animals, and owners that care deeply for their pets. As this trend continues in our community we are confident Highland will continue to see a growth in business, and stay a leader in animal health.” – Audrey J, local Rescue Foster-Network Leader
