I can't say enough good things about Hidden Valley. The staff, from front office to techs to vets, is top-notch, taking the time to learn me and my multiple dogs by name. Dr. Sabadish is compassionate, caring, thorough, and takes all the time in the world to discuss my dogs' health issues. She calls on the phone and/or sends emails to follow up on issues that need additional discussion, like lab results and possible treatments. When I had to have a beloved dog euthanized a few months ago, I was left feeling sad, of course, but also as if I had been part of a somehow sacred experience. They have a dedicated room with soft lighting, floor pillows, treats galore, and the process is undertaken at exactly the speed that the client and pet need -- no sense of urgency, and infinite tenderness for both the pet and the owner. It was the BEST possible conclusion to his well-lived (and much-loved) life; I only wish people could be treated with this level of concern and love when the end of our lives approaches. I LOVE these folks, and I'm thankful every time we visit the office that I stumbled onto them through an online listing of vets in Raleigh when I moved here two years ago. Clearly, I give them the highest possible recommendation, and I'd urge anyone to give them a try. Read Less

This place is amazing. Very affordable and the vet was so thorough and caring. I had a few crazy dog lady questions but the vet took my concerns very seriously and explained away all my worries. Another vet had quoted me over $800 for a teeth cleaning and extractions but HVAH said that his teeth looked good and no teeth cleaning was necessary yet which shows me that they are truly concerned about what my dog's needs are and that they aren't just after the money. I will definitely be returning! Thank you for a great experience! Read Less

I have been very satisfied with my experience at Hidden Valley. Having worked at the front desk of an animal hospital myself, I am very picky about where I choose to take my cat. The main reason I initially chose Hidden Valley was that of the proximity to my apartment, and I choose to continue going there because I feel they really care about my cat's well-being, their services are affordable, and it is generally just a positive experience each time I visit. I would definitely recommend bringing your fur babies here! Read Less

Outstanding vet practice. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that goes way above what's expected. You can tell that your pet's health is their top priority. This is the best vet I've been to since moving to the Raleigh area, by far. The first time I contacted them was during an emergency. Rather than try to make money off me and have me come in for a visit, they referred me directly to a specialist. Other vets won't do that, they want the money. When my dog needed an ultrasound, the staff gave up an appointment for their own pet so that mine could get the test she needed sooner. Things like that show how they really care about what they do.

Very affordable prices. Our two dogs have seen many vets at this office and we are always pleased with the excellent service and thorough explanations. One of our dogs tends to eat things he shouldn't and we've had really good experiences with them not over-prescribing treatments but also handling things quickly when needed. Our senior dog has always been nervous at the vet - but will still take a treat when coming here! I also have to give a shout-out to the lovely staff who answer the phones and do checkin/checkout. They always answer my crazy dog-mom questions and provide exemplary customer service. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vet in the area. Read Less

The customer service at this hospital is REMARKABLE! From the initial phone call I made to inquire about vet services, Sarah, who answered the phone was so patient with me and thoroughly answered all of my questions. Upon arrival I learned that this hospital, boarding, and grooming facility had a separate cat and dog section which I'm sure eliminates some of the anxiety most pets; especially cats, have when they're outside of their familiar element. I was greeted by Betty at the front desk and she made made my check in process seamless. Sarah soon greeted me and my cat Chloe in the waiting room within minutes and took us into a private room to weigh my cat and get to know her prior to the doctor coming in. Dr. V was so patient with my gentle giant 16.5 pound cat as she gave her an exam that my cat, Chloe, lied there patiently on the table and let Dr. V give here her shots and thoroughly exam her. Overall, I'm elated that I found a new vet for my cat being I am still new to NC. I'll continue to take my cat here for all future vet visits. They also have a grooming section so I'm looking forward to my cat's grooming appointment next week. My cat is back to her normal self and is feeling all purrrry and cuddly again. Thanks Betty, Sarah (or Sara), and Dr. V. You all were simply amazing!!! Read Less

We have taken our dogs to Hidden Valley Animal Hospital for 20 years. Yesterday, we loved our last dog to the rainbow bridge. Dr. Szabo and the staff are compassionate and dedicated to the animals in their care. The staff gave Piper chicken nuggets as a goodbye treat. This is the fourth time we have had to say goodbye to a beloved dog.. It is difficult but made so much easier by people who understand the pain and make an extremely difficult decision as loving and comfortable as possible. Our dogs always acted as if going to Hidden Valley was a trip to the spa. They always knew they were going to a place where they were loved and treated so well. I am so grateful to everyone. I cannot express how wonderful it has been to have the assurance that our buddies were so well cared for by such wonderful humans. Read Less

Afterwards, she even typed up 3 pages of personalized notes and sent them to me promptly so that I had a record of everything we discussed.

Hidden Valley Animal Hospital is one amazing vet practice! We take our sweet German/shepherd Rottie, Shari, to see Dr. Riddle, and she can't get enough of the entire staff! This June she had to have a mast cell tumor removed from her leg and there aren't enough stars in yelp to describe our experience with the doctors there. Due to the location of her tumor, Shari tore her stitches a few times doing essential things like using the bathroom every day, and Dr. Riddle went out of her way to care for Shari every step of the way, from stitching her up every time she needed it, to squeezing in appointments to check on my sweet baby. We won't be taking Shari anywhere else because Dr. Riddle is a one of a kind amazing veterinarian! Even the ladies up front are so sweet. Joy was there almost every time we brought Shari in, and she is always so cheerful, compassionate, and helpful! We can't recommend this place enough!!!!!

After many years of wanting a pet but waiting for the right time, I picked up my sweet and sometimes crazy kitten this weekend. After researching vets in the area, I chose Hidden Valley based on all of the wonderful reviews. I called HV last Thursday to schedule her first visit, and was happily surprised to get a Monday morning appointment. As a first time pet owner, I was nervous about the first appointment and afraid I would be told I was doing everything wrong. Walking into the clinic, everyone was so nice and helpful. We only waited a couple minutes at the most before being brought back to the private room. Dr. Berry eased my fears and gave me great new kitten mommy tips. She helped me feel more confident and comfortable as a first time pet owner. You can tell how much Dr. Berry genuinely cares about animals. Little kitty didn't even notice when she got her first vaccine! Overall, it was a very quick, thorough, and pleasant visit.I never post reviews on Yelp, I mainly use it to read reviews, but I was so happy with my experience with HV that I wanted to share and recommend them to other new pet owners!

An absolutely wonderful animal hospital with great vets and a warm and caring staff! I'm moving to Minneapolis sometime in the next few weeks, and while I am excited about that, I'm very sad to be leaving Hidden Valley Animal Hospital behind. The caring staff at Hidden Valley helped us through a very difficult time when we decided (after months of heart-wrenching deliberation) to put our 12 yr old Lab Charlotte to sleep, who was suffering terribly. They have provided great care for all of our pets and have talented groomers conveniently located directly below the office.

I highly recommend Hidden Valley. When you bring your pet here, your little lovebug receives top notch health care. Not only do they provide excellent medical services, the doctors love their patients as they would their own. Nothing gives me peace of mind like working with professionals who care as deeply as I do. Minnie is always very comfortable at the clinic, and my fiancé and I really enjoy the staff - a clear indication of great company culture. I can't thank them enough for the role they've played in Minnie's life since we first brought her home. Friendly team, accomplished/experienced doctors, convenient service. Not enough stars to reflect appropriately, so I guess 5 will do! :):):) Sidenote; I skimmed through the reviews written by the only person to give a less dignifying review for Hidden Valley.. this guy leaves miserable, scathing remarks for every place he reviews. It's frightening. Please do not pay any mind to the review he left for this establishment. Thank you! Read Less

In fact, he has often told us that expensive procedures were not needed. He has called on his own to ask how our dog was doing simply because he was so conscientious.

The front staff was great and whomever groomed our Cairins did a great job!! We'll be back Follow Up 6/2016 WE continue to be thrilled with Hidden Valley. We have seen Dr. Carter the most, but all vets we have experienced have been terrific. My wife and I foster dogs for the Wake County Animal Center and always recommend Hidden Valley to our adopters!!

I posted a review a year ago, and I want to follow up. All of the vets at Hidden Valley provided compassionate, excellent care to our cat Felix throughout his life. I could not ask for a better group of doctors - they truly care about the animals and people in their care. Dr. Szabo, Dr. Valenzisi and Dr. Carter spent the most time with us, and they were wonderful throughout good and difficult times. We only saw Dr. Berry a couple times, but she was great too. The care was excellent. They referred us to the NC State Vet School when necessary, and coordinated care with them when he developed complex problems in his old age. This has been the best experience either of us have had with a veterinary practice. We strongly recommend them! Read Less

I am completely satisfied with the level of service my dog and I have received here. We have gone in for 1 yearly exam and shots, as well as anal gland expression every couple months. The staff are positive, courteous, and attentive. Making appointments has been a breeze. When we met with the doctor, she was genuinely invested in my dog's well-being and made us feel welcome and well cared for. We were given options and not forced into any decision. I've come across offices in the past that, in my opinion, over prescribe/medicate, but this office is not one of them. I believe they provide a realistic and smart approach to animal health care.The prices here for routine exams, shots, and anal gland expression are of the best I've found in the area, for a full service veterinary office. Since my dog needs the latter done quite frequently, it was important to me that they not charge for an office visit every time she gets then done. I don't know about pricing for procedures and other services, but the ones I have encountered are fair.One thing I had never come across at a vet office- the separate entrances for dogs and cats. This is unique and I think it works pretty well! They have little treats set out on the counter for a job-well-done bonus for your animal :)  Hidden Valley Animal Hospital has found a long time customer here- I will continue to bring my dog to see them and recommend their services to all others.

Dr. Berry and the staff at Hidden Valley have been wonderful to me and my pups. They have helped us get through some really tough times, with the best possible healthcare, support and compassion. Everyone there is always so nice and most of them know me by name when I call. And, they always go above and beyond to do what they can to help when I happen to show up with another "stray" dog or cat - scanning them, helping me track down their owners, reaching out to the rescue community, etc. I highly recommend them and can't thank them enough for everything.

I can't say enough good things about Hidden Valley. The staff, from front office to techs to vets, is top-notch, taking the time to learn me and my multiple dogs by name. Dr. Sabadish is compassionate, caring, thorough, and takes all the time in the world to discuss my dogs' health issues. She calls on the phone and/or sends emails to follow up on issues that need additional discussion, like lab results and possible treatments. When I had to have a beloved dog euthanized a few months ago, I was left feeling sad, of course, but also as if I had been part of a somehow sacred experience. They have a dedicated room with soft lighting, floor pillows, treats galore, and the process is undertaken at exactly the speed that the client and pet need -- no sense of urgency, and infinite tenderness for both the pet and the owner. It was the BEST possible conclusion to his well-lived (and much-loved) life; I only wish people could be treated with this level of concern and love when the end of our lives approaches. I LOVE these folks, and I'm thankful every time we visit the office that I stumbled onto them through an online listing of vets in Raleigh when I moved here two years ago. Clearly, I give them the highest possible recommendation, and I'd urge anyone to give them a try. Read Less

The customer service at this hospital is REMARKABLE! From the initial phone call I made to inquire about vet services, Sarah, who answered the phone was so patient with me and thoroughly answered all of my questions. Upon arrival I learned that this hospital, boarding, and grooming facility had a separate cat and dog section which I'm sure eliminates some of the anxiety most pets; especially cats, have when they're outside of their familiar element. I was greeted by Betty at the front desk and she made made my check in process seamless. Sarah soon greeted me and my cat Chloe in the waiting room within minutes and took us into a private room to weigh my cat and get to know her prior to the doctor coming in. Dr. V was so patient with my gentle giant 16.5 pound cat as she gave her an exam that my cat, Chloe, lied there patiently on the table and let Dr. V give here her shots and thoroughly exam her. Overall, I'm elated that I found a new vet for my cat being I am still new to NC. I'll continue to take my cat here for all future vet visits. They also have a grooming section so I'm looking forward to my cat's grooming appointment next week. My cat is back to her normal self and is feeling all purrrry and cuddly again.

We have taken our dogs to Hidden Valley Animal Hospital for 20 years. Yesterday, we loved our last dog to the rainbow bridge. Dr. Szabo and the staff are compassionate and dedicated to the animals in their care. The staff gave Piper chicken nuggets as a goodbye treat.

Hidden Valley Animal Hospital is one amazing vet practice! We take our sweet German/shepherd Rottie, Shari, to see Dr. Riddle, and she can't get enough of the entire staff!

After many years of wanting a pet but waiting for the right time, I picked up my sweet and sometimes crazy kitten this weekend. After researching vets in the area, I chose Hidden Valley based on all of the wonderful reviews. I called HV last Thursday to schedule her first visit, and was happily surprised to get a Monday morning appointment. As a first time pet owner, I was nervous about the first appointment and afraid I would be told I was doing everything wrong. Walking into the clinic, everyone was so nice and helpful. We only waited a couple minutes at the most before being brought back to the private room. Dr. Berry eased my fears and gave me great new kitten mommy tips. She helped me feel more confident and comfortable as a first time pet owner. You can tell how much Dr. Berry genuinely cares about animals. Little kitty didn't even notice when she got her first vaccine!

I highly recommend Hidden Valley. When you bring your pet here, your little lovebug receives top notch health care. Not only do they provide excellent medical services, the doctors love their patients as they would their own. Nothing gives me peace of mind like working with professionals who care as deeply as I do. Minnie is always very comfortable at the clinic, and my fiancé and I really enjoy the staff - a clear indication of great company culture. I can't thank them enough for the role they've played in Minnie's life since we first brought her home. Friendly team, accomplished/experienced doctors, convenient service. Not enough stars to reflect appropriately, so I guess 5 will do! :):):) Sidenote; I skimmed through the reviews written by the only person to give a less dignifying review for Hidden Valley.. this guy leaves miserable, scathing remarks for every place he reviews.

Right now we regularly see Dr. Amy, but we've also seen Dr. Berry and Dr. Carter. In general I've been very happy with how they treat our pets and us. I feel they treat me as an intelligent person and all the staff, doctors included, will talk with you instead of AT you. Everyone is very caring and gentle! Even my difficult cats have been handled with great care and concern for their stress levels and the puppy absolutely loves the staff. We're very happy to have chosen this practice and will continue to use them for the care of our four legged family. Read Less

Hidden Valley made our special Boone feel "special" her last year. They were wonderful and respectful of our wishes for our girl Boone. She had been with us for 16 1/2 years and Hidden Valley called her their "Super Senior". In her final day they directed us where we could go for assistance by a sweet phone call. Thank you to a wonderful and comforting staff. You helped us finish Boone's life in comfort.Read Less

We love Hidden Valley in so many ways. The doctors and the staff are all very caring, knowledgeable, professional andcompassionate. The prices for everything are very reasonable. We found this vet by the great reviews, and it was near where we lived. However, we have moved twice, further away. Yet, we continue to bring our 2 dogs to Hidden Valley. For all the wonderful reasons I mentioned above. We always recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic vet. They go above and beyond in caring for our pets, without racking up costs. Number one vet care, in our opinion!!! We are sincere in our review here! Read Less

We have been using Hidden Valley for many years. I wouldn't trust my babies to anyone else. They've been through it all with us, from welcoming new family members, terminal illnesses, to the heartbreak of saying goodbye. They are always caring, kind, and compassionate.

We used Hidden Valley for 19 years and were very happy with them. Then we moved and I decided to try a vet closer to our new home. Our dog got sick and every time I took her to the new vet I never got to see the vet, only the vet techs. The new vet also nickeled and dimed us to death!! When it came time to make the decision whether to put our dog down or not I decided to go back to Hidden Valley. I'm SO glad I did!! Dr. V was so honest with us and understanding. She took time with us and we never felt rushed. In addition, the cost was very reasonable and didn't add to our grief. Thank you, Dr. V and everyone at Hidden Valley!! I'm coming home with my kitty! Y'all are worth the extra drive!! Read Less

We have used them for about 10 years and have been completely satisfied. Dr Szabo is very knowledgeable, patient, and I have never felt he was charging more than was appropriate. In fact, he has often told us that expensive procedures were not needed. He has called on his own to ask how our dog was doing simply because he was so conscientious. In the past, other vets charged exorbitant fees for procedures that seemed unnecessary. Not the case with this excellent vet. You will be pleased.Read Less

I had such a great experience here. Their fees are much more reasonable than the previous vets I have seen in the area, and Dr. Amy Valenzisi took such wonderful care of my cat. The x-ray machine was down during my visit and I had to go to work. They offered to watch her until it came online and let me come pick her up later. Dr. Valenzisi also followed up with me after my visit to make sure my cat was responding well to medication. Can't say enough positive things - would highly recommend.Read Less

I posted a review a year ago, and I want to follow up. All of the vets at Hidden Valley provided compassionate, excellent care to our cat Felix throughout his life. I could not ask for a better group of doctors - they truly care about the animals and people in their care. Dr. Szabo, Dr. Valenzisi and Dr. Carter spent the most time with us, and they were wonderful throughout good and difficult times. We only saw Dr. Berry a couple times, but she was great too. The care was excellent. They referred us to the NC State Vet School when necessary, and coordinated care with them when he developed complex problems in his old age. This has been the best experience either of us have had with a veterinary practice. We strongly recommend them! Read Less

I am completely satisfied with the level of service my dog and I have received here. We have gone in for 1 yearly exam and shots, as well as anal gland expression every couple months. The staff are positive, courteous, and attentive. Making appointments has been a breeze. When we met with the doctor, she was genuinely invested in my dog's well-being and made us feel welcome and well cared for. We were given options and not forced into any decision. I've come across offices in the past that, in my opinion, over prescribe/medicate, but this office is not one of them. I believe they provide a realistic and smart approach to animal health care.The prices here for routine exams, shots, and anal gland expression are of the best I've found in the area, for a full service veterinary office. Since my dog needs the latter done quite frequently, it was important to me that they not charge for an office visit every time she gets then done. I don't know about pricing for procedures and other services, but the ones I have encountered are fair.One thing I had never come across at a vet office- the separate entrances for dogs and cats. This is unique and I think it works pretty well! They have little treats set out on the counter for a job-well-done bonus for your animal :)  Hidden Valley Animal Hospital has found a long time customer here- I will continue to bring my dog to see them and recommend their services to all others.

Dr. Berry and the staff at Hidden Valley have been wonderful to me and my pups. They have helped us get through some really tough times, with the best possible healthcare, support and compassion. Everyone there is always so nice and most of them know me by name when I call. And, they always go above and beyond to do what they can to help when I happen to show up with another "stray" dog or cat - scanning them, helping me track down their owners, reaching out to the rescue community, etc. I highly recommend them and can't thank them enough for everything.
