I'll through Hill Creek Vets into the mix. I've always used them for my cats and dogs, and have been very happy with them. I once did some pricing, calling all the area vets for a particular operation, and they were all pretty much the same: very expensive, but equal. I do know at least one vet in Siler City is considerably more reasonable, if it doesn't mean using a lot of gas for you to get there. The cost of animal care has become ridiculous over the last decade or so. I know there must be a lot of pets out there whose owners cannot afford care for them.
I'm looking at them as well. I'm thinking of opening an animal hospital south of the circle.
