Happy Clients


Featured Story

I was new in town and within days of moving to Carlisle, PA, my dog was in need of immediate attention. I asked around to local people who they took their pets to, some replies were so-so, not very enthusiastic, but then there were the people who were only too happy to tell me about the wonderful and exceptional care their pets received at “Hillmount”. I called & quickly saw that my pet received the best care and treatment from everyone at Hillmount. Dr. Bowers was gentle, very thorough in explaining my dogs needs and the best course of action for his treatment. I was just as impressed with the financial aspect, as prices were very reasonable. If you are looking for the best care for your pets, I highly recommend you look to Hillmount. I will continue taking all my pets to Hillmount. It's true that word of mouth is good business and I’m very happy I found this wonderful veterinarian.

"Another really enthusiastic, grateful, and heartfelt vote for Hillmount! Both Dr. Bowers and Dr. Henry took incredibly good care of our Gibbs. She had Cushing's, arthritis, and congestive heart failure. With carefully prescribed and frequently adjusted medications, she lived from 13 to 15, just as Dr. Bowers predicted she would. Dr. Henry did a brilliant job of finding the right test to diagnose her Cushing's, which had a somewhat unusual pattern of symptoms. I brought her in for arthritis treatments, and the staff acted as though she were the only "patient" in the place. They responded to my many emailed questions with honesty, kindness, and patience. I cannot emphasize enough how kind they were and how well Gibbs did under their care."


I completely trust Dr Bower and his staff with my 2 dogs and cat. Everyone is so friendly and courteous to me and pets! They go above and beyond! I love how Dr Bower explains everything to you! I highly recommend without a doubt!


I was referred to this facility by a friend and has only been in twice but every time I felt so valued and heard. The staff was so friendly and accommodating.


I've been bringing my pets to Dr Bowers since 1985. Gotta love him! Dr Heather has been a great addition to the office. And Cindy and her staff are awesome!

Dr. Bowers and Dr. Henry are both amazing, as well as their staff! I could not recommend them more highly!!


am especially grateful to Dr. Bowers for providing the detailed information I prefer to have when dealing with my dog's health issues. He seems to be a great diagnostician, too, tapping into skills, experience and knowledge, but also instincts.

R. K.,

Love Dr. Henry! She is so personable and knows our family pets so well!


We've been taking our pets to Hillmount for at least 25 years and have recommended their services to many others. The quality of care is exceptional.


Your team is amazing. When my dog needs something, you fit her in, when my family forgets to tell me she needs meds you help me. Great place. Definitely amazing with military families.


Dr. Bowers, Dr. Henry, and the entire staff have always been extremely accommodating to my needs as a pet owner, and have been very loving and caring to both of my dogs. I can't thank them enough for the work they do and the way they do it!


They have always been great - work very hard to get me an appointment that works with my schedule. Often if I have an emergency they will get me an appointment either the same day or the next day.


Dr. Bowers truly listens to the pet parent and doesn’t appear to make predetermined treatment decisions until he has all the facts.


Hillmount came highly recommended by a co-worker when I bought a new puppy after I moved to Carlisle. They have exceeded my expectations! I now have two dogs and I will never take them anywhere else. The staff is kind, caring and friendly!


With every visit, I am always able to make appointments that fit into my tight schedule easily, I am seen timely, the staff and vet are courteous and helpful, and the facility is clean.


Dr.Henry’s love for animals is so evident in her care for her patients. It is very reassuring know that she is our pet’s doctor!


Excellent care, service and professionalism. Dr. Bowers is informative, cordial, knowledgeable and professional. Desk is always pleasant and helpful and provides quick service. And, George is a delight! Waiting time is minimal.


I have always been beyond satisfied with my visits. As a first time dog owner I feel my uncertainties an concerns are always taken seriously and I always leave your office feeling like my dog was loved and well cared for. The staff is awesome.


We are long-time clients of Hillmount Animal Hospital. Dr. Bowers and Dr. Henry have seen us through multiple issues with our cats, and in every instance our pets received the best care. We have the highest regard for the doctors and staff.

J W,

This is the first vet I’ve taken my dog to that gave us a personalized and manageable treatment plan. I trust them that they make decisions based on what is best for my dog and our family. Dr. Bowers gave our dog the ability to enjoy life again!!


I have 6 cats all who have needed same day care. They always squeeze me in. Charges are very reasonable. Hillmount is the best.


We followed Dr. Henry from Carlisle Barracks and love her. Besides her great knowledge base, she is kind and gentle with our dogs. We feel very at ease with the care our animals receive at Hillmount and have a great deal of trust in them all.


We have trusted our pets care with Hillmount for years and will continue to. We trust Dr Henry & Dr Bowers completely with their care. The entire office staff is very nice and helpful.


Mattie is the third dog I've taken there. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Both doctors show my pet love and attention, and make sure all aspects of her health is attended to.


The veterinarians here are great with animals! My cat was very calm during the examination and adjusted quickly when we got back home - no drama whatsoever! Dr. Bowers conducted a thorough examination and all of our questions were answered.


You've been caring for our various dogs now for over 13 years and never steered us wrong. The staff is caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. They remember our dogs' names and their foibles. Drs. Bowers and Henry always listen to our concerns.

I first came to Hillmount with an abandoned kitten about 14 years ago. Then with dogs and Fell in love with the professional staff and Dr. Bowers. Have gone to other vets in past but this hospital, I feel the knowledge and expertise is awesome.

We love Heather. She has been great with all our dogs. She understands our concerns about dog care.


Courteous, knowledgeable staff. Rates are very reasonable


I had a dog for 17 years and all the staff and doctors were the greatest people. I feel they will be the same way with my new rescue dog. I love everyone there.

Tell us why:
My pets are my family and very important to me. Like me, we have all aged and our health and happiness are very important to me.


Dr. Bowers and the staff at Hillmount have given us excellent service and consideration caring for our cats, Badness and Little Missy, and utmost sympathy during the loss of Badness. They have been there whenever I have needed them.


We have taken our 3 dogs and 2 cats to Dr. Bowers at Hillmount Animal hospital for the last five years. It is clear that all of the staff and Dr. Bowers are true animal loves, and Dr. Bowers always answers our questions in a way that is easy to understand. We have a rescue dog who had breast cancer. Dr. Bowers performed a partial mastectomy and Sandy has been cancer free for a year and a half, with a second lease on life. We would recommend Hillmount and Dr. Bowers to anyone in the Carlisle/Mechanicsburg/Shippensburg area.

I have been fortunate to be a client at Hillmount since its inception - throughout the lifetimes of several cherished cats. It is indeed a valuable asset to the community.

MR, Carlisle

A great help when we needed it! We came upon a situation where we needed to go out of town on short notice to help someone close to us. Our dogs hadn't been to a kennel in some time, and were due for all of their shots before they could be boarded. We called and explained the situation, and although they had no open appointments, they took the weight of our situation to heart and were able to work us in. Their staff has always been friendly and EXCELLENT with our animals. Thank you so much!

Shelly M, Carlisle
