YOUR PET’S BEST FRIEND

Providing compassionate, high-quality veterinary care for the family pets of Northern Rhode Island and the Blackstone Valley.

OUR MISSION

Diamond Hill Animal Clinic’s mission is to develop strong bonds with owners who strive to take the best care of their pets; this bond allows us to educate our clients on best practices to maximize their pet’s health and well-being. We are dedicated to staying up-to-date with the latest advances in the industry and believe in practicing the “gold standard” of veterinary medicine. We are an American Animal Hospital Accredited (AAHA) practice, meaning we adhere to over 900 rigorous standards in patient safety, equipment, veterinary knowledge and other key areas of pet health care. AAHA-accredited practices are required to stay up-to-date with the quick advancements and ever-changing standards of care in veterinary medicine. We strive to practice excellent medicine while maintaining a friendly, welcoming environment for all of our clients and patients.

OUR HISTORY

Diamond Hill Animal Clinic was first operated as an animal hospital by Dr. Roger Cournoyer in the 1960’s. In 1972, Dr. Linda Hanson bought the practice. Under Dr.Hanson’s care the clinic became a full-time and fully staffed hospital. After Dr. Hanson’s retirement in 2012, Dr. Summer Matsinger bought the practice. For over half a century, Diamond Hill Animal Clinic has served Northern Rhode Island and Blackstone Valley and we look forward to many more years to come!
