I have lived in Harford County most of my life. From childhood to adulthood I have had numerous pets. Each and every one of them has been seen at Hickory Veterinary Hospital. the staff treats my fur babies as their own; each one knows my bulldogs by name. Sometimes animals get nervous going to the doctor, mine act as if they are going to visit friends. All of the doctors have seen my dogs, but Dr.Silcox has spent the most time with them. He ans the staff are highly recommended – Tank and Reagan agree!!

Recently transferred to Hickory Vets very glad we did. Everyone we have had contact with are caring animal lovers. This is expressed in communication with my wife and I and how our pet is treated. Dr Silcox and the staff are great. My wife and I have have utmost confidence in the care our German Shepherd is receiving.

Hickory has been consistently excellent over the years. Caring, compassionate and thorough. It’s a great family-vet. And, if your pet is diagnosed with cancer, Dr. McNesby is amazing. She will talk you through it so you understand the options. And of course she can’t guarantee the outcome but she does everything within her power to make the experience as easy as possible for your pet. You might be surprised to see how good your pet feels, while treatments are going on. Mine actually wags when we arrive!!

I’ve been taking my English Bulldogs to Hickory Vet for 6 years now. I want everyone to know they are by far the most attentive, knowledgeable, caring staff that I’ve every dealt with. There kennel is also great, mostly young girls that offer walks and baths and just are just animal lovers. Its great to go away knowing my dog is in the best hands. One of my dogs had cancer and Dr. McNesby gave her such great care and extended her life with quality years. This is a place I highly recommend to others.

Just had my first appointment with Dr. McNesby and both she and the vet tech, Jenna that accompanied her were amazing! The appointment was for our cat and this was a night and day difference for him. They were fantastic with him, while providing a very thorough exam and rabies vaccination. Very comforting bedside manner putting both you and your pet at ease. All in the comfort of your home.

The value, quality and convenience of service cannot be beat. Hands down we have found our new vet!!!!
