Allergies & Dermatology

Occasional itching and shedding is normal for pets. Excessive scratching, bald spots, scabbing and other external symptoms, on the other hand, could be a sign of a dermatological problem. At Battery Hill Veterinary Clinic, we don’t want your loved one to suffer from the discomfort of a skin problem. Our professional pet allergy and dermatology services can help identify, diagnose and treat whatever may be ailing your companion.

Nutrition & Weight Management

A balanced diet and a healthy weight aren’t just something that humans need to worry about. Our animal friends can also benefit greatly from the right food and an appropriate fitness level. With so many food products to choose from, however, managing your pet’s nutrition and weight control needs can be challenging. At Battery Hill Veterinary Clinic, we understand companion animal nutrition and we can develop a customized plan that is designed just for your pet.

Battery Hill Veterinary Clinic


Because pets cannot speak and are often masters at disguising symptoms, recognizing the signs of illness or injury can be challenging. It’s times like these that we turn to veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools allow us to examine your pet internally and get a clear picture of what may be ailing them. Battery Hill Veterinary Clinic utilizes a broad spectrum of routine and advanced techniques to achieve timely and accurate diagnoses and develop effective treatment plans.

If stinky breath is keeping you from enjoying those kisses and cuddles, it could be a sign that your companion needs a dental exam. Without regular care, buildup can form on the teeth and gums, eventually leading to other, more serious medical problems. Our professional pet dentistry services can give your loved one the clean, healthy mouth he or she deserves. Through our preventative care and advanced treatment options, you’ll be able to get up close and personal with your furry friend once again!

Battery Hill Veterinary Clinic


Finding out that your pet will need an operation can be nerve wracking. You want to be assured that your loved one will be in good hands at all times. At Battery Hill Veterinary Clinic, we want to take the worry out of your companion’s surgery.

Most importantly, all of our surgeries are performed using modern equipment and techniques, with extra attention given to patient comfort and safety.
