Hilltop Animal Hospital’s primary mission is to provide the best in preventative health, wellness care, and emergency evaluation and treatment for local area pets. The hospital offers routine wellness check‐ups that include a thorough physical and oral exam, internal parasite screening, comprehensive deworming and vaccines. At these routine wellness visits, our veterinarians make individualized recommendations based on the health and wellness of the pet as well as lifestyle and nutritional recommendations. Regular dental cleanings will be discussed as they are an important component of overall health and also reduce the chance of tooth loss and painful periodontal disease.

They employ the latest in radiography and in-house laboratory diagnostics such as blood work, urinalysis and microscopic analysis in order to diagnose and treat their patients. No appointment is necessary for emergency care and pets are seen on a triage basis.
Their surgical expertise includes routine procedures such as spays and neuters as well as orthopedics, and soft tissue surgery. Their goal is to provide surgical services that are minimally invasive, so that the pets they treat can return to normal as soon as possible. All anesthetic procedures are performed and closely monitored by registered technicians with the help of the latest in technology in anesthesia monitoring equipment.
Dr. Scotty A. Gibbs and Dr. Allison Schnoke are the head veterinarians at Hilltop Animal Hospital. Each brings years of experience to the practice of veterinary medicine in Fuquay Varina. In addition, Dr. Schnoke is a certified licensed veterinary acupuncturist. According to Dr. Schnoke, “I am always pleasantly surprised by the positive results that are obtained with acupuncture and how well the animals tolerate the needles. The results we have seen in our practice from acupuncture are so impressive that I return to Florida a few times a year to teach pet acupuncture to other veterinarians."
According to Dr. Gibbs, Dr. Schnoke's acupuncture training is a perfect complement to the services Hilltop Animal Hospital provides. "My main clinical interest lies in the areas of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery along with pain management and anesthesia. Dr. Schnoke's interest in not only internal medicine and dermatology, but the study of eastern medicine as applied to our animal patients is a way to treat the entire animal to relieve pain and return to optimal health as fast as possible."
