About Finn Hill
Animal Hospital

Hospitality and Friendliness for Pets and Pet Parents

Finn Hill Animal Hospital was founded in 2013 out of love and appreciation for all animals. More than a decade later, those principles remain as true as ever. We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for all our visitors – that starts with Dr. Velu taking the time to greet every pet in the reception area.

Combined with our welcoming atmosphere, Finn Hill Animal Hospital strives to make veterinary care affordable for all. These principles illustrate our commitment to our community’s pets and pet parents.
