    Mike P
  • "This clinic is fantastic! The staff and Doctor are kind, patient and care very much about their patients. As a professional dog trainer I have high standards when it comes to my pups care. They absolutely meet these standards and are excellent with explaining the issues, what to expect in treatment and the whys. Will never go anywhere else."
    Blair H
  • "Dr. Hawksford is BY FAR the most professional, knowledgeable, friendly down to earth Vet I've ever met. Not only does he genuinely interact with our family, but most importantly treats our Labrador "Luci Mae", as if she was was his own. Jen at the front desk is equally as amazing! Quite simply, I would recommend Hudson Pet Hospital to anyone in a heartbeat!! Cheers"
    Albert JR
  • "Dr Hawks ford is so down to earth. He genuinely loves my pets. I had 2 little Yorky. My oldest one was Roxy. She was 16 1/2 years old & had several health problems. She had kidney disease. It had gotten worse at stage 4. There was nothing left to do to help her. It was the end for my sweet Roxy. I had her since she was 5 weeks old. She was my little baby. She followed me every where I went. She sat in my chair with me. She lived to snuggle. She licked my nose. She was a real sweetheart. Roxy is forever in my heart. Dr Hawks ford was so kind and gentle when we had Roxy put down. Thank you so much Dr Hawks ford. I don'the know how I would have made it through this without you and your tech."
    Kathy E
  • "I first came here with my cat who had been ill and losing weight. Dr. Hawksford diagnosed my cat when my previous vet hadn't. The cat had some very good years. He and his staff are great with all my pets. They go out of their way to get them taken care of. I just called for an appointment for my dog for next week, but they made sure we got the annoying but non-dangerous problem addressed before the weekend. Dr. Hawksford always gives me all the options for treating my pets & explains everything thoroughly. Regarding Google reviews complaining about costs, veterinarians are small business owners in addition to clinicians. The have to pay employees, rent office space, buy and maintain equipment, maintain an inventory of supplies, and earn a wage themselves. And they deserve to be paid for their expertise!"
    Hei Hue
  • "Took our cat there for the first time a couple weeks ago. They were quick with identifying the problem right away. The meds they gave her started working right away. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who asks."
  • "The team here is awesome. Dr Hawksford and Jen are awesome. Very accommodating and most important up front with any treatments needed. They cared for an aging lab and demonstrated compassion and candor regarding the care we agreed upon. A++++ Thanks again for caring about my dogs as much as i do."
    P Fred

    Omega G
  • "Very friendly and thorough vet! His staff are always very helpful too. Dr. Hawksford takes the extra time to explain what is going when examining my dog, and never makes me feel rushed, allowing plenty of time for questions. I appreciate the fact that pet owners are allowed in the room during the general exam, unlike previous Vets I’ve been to. All in all, very friendly, patient, and caring team at Hudson Pet Hospital!"
    Anna N
  • "Very friendly staff. Doctor was excellent. I would recommend them 100 per cent"
    Cathy S

    Heidi R
  • "I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Hawksford. He is personable, respectful, professional, informative, intelligent, and will never push decisions based on financial gain! I would not go anywhere else unless left with no other choice, period! Thanks so much!"
    Albert I
  • "Had teeth taken out of small dog. Good up front communications. Good post surgery communications. Met and exceeded expectations."
    David C
  • "Dr. Hawksford and his staff literally saved my cats life. They are knowledgable, talented, and extremely caring. Dr. Hawksford came in on his one day off so I could visit my cat who had to stay in the hospital for about a week due to his very sickly condition. I called Jenny the receptionist multiple times a day every day to check up on him. I kind of felt like a nussance but she never seemed annoyed; she gave me updates and sympathy. I trust Hudson Pet Hosptial more than Hudson Physicians."
    Sydney O
  • "I can't say enough positive things about Hudson Pet Hospital. Dr. Hawksford is an extremely bright guy. Add to that compassion and common sense and I couldn't ask for a better vet!

    I credit him with diagnosing my 14-year-old cat's pancreatitis and IBD (after a couple years of problems) and keeping him healthy, happy, and his naughty but lovable self as long as possible.

    Now they've helped my rescue puggle through ACL surgery/TPLO surgery. Dr. Nate Rose came to HPH to do the surgery. Dr. Hawksford removed a lump at the same time. I felt so much better that it was done there. They were hugely helpful before and after and my pup is doing great!

    Definitely highly recommend Dr. Hawksford and his staff!"
    Heidi H

    Giskard R
  • "I'm new to the area, and Dr. Hawksford and his staff have been kind and extremely helpful as I've navigated my three aging dogs through their numerous late stage life issues. Based on my experiences, I can strongly recommend them as caring people who will do their best for your pet."
    Brian F
  • "Amazing DVM and amazing staff. Dr. Hawksford has helped us understand a lot about our dogs health and behavior in the 6 years we have been going to him. He guided us through a scary mast cell tumor incident with one of them last year. I just feel fortunate to have him treating my dogs."
    Shane P
  • "Staff is very friendly and kind with our pets. Little is a great greeter."
