About Us
Our Practice and Philosophy

In 2011, Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital celebrates its twenty-second anniversary. Since 1989,
we’ve celebrated the bond between our patients and their families, and we strive to support
that bond through the best, most current medical, diagnostic, and surgical methods available.

Three core ideas form our working philosophy and our success:

• Ensure excellence in veterinary medicine to celebrate and enhance the human-companion animal bond.

• Provide compassionate care for the animals whose health and lives are entrusted to us.

• Foster teamwork, harmony, and ongoing development of professional and personal skills.

Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital has earned accreditation with American Animal Hospital
Association (AAHA) practice. The organization’s rigorous requirements mean that only 12%
of all small veterinary practices receive accreditation. AAHA’s evaluation includes a quality
assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods, and pet
health care management.
ZACHARY J. ANDERSON, MS, DVM
Born and raised in the South Bay, Dr. Anderson learned to love veterinary medicine at the young age of 13, working at his local veterinary hospital part-time. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology, his Masters in Neuroscience, and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine all at Washington State University. Following veterinary school, he completed a one-year rotating internship at East Bay Veterinary Specialists and Emergency in Walnut Creek, California, to further his knowledge and skills.  

Dr. Anderson and his family live in Pleasant Hill and have very much enjoyed all the local community has to offer. Dr. Anderson met his wife, Jennifer, also a veterinarian, during graduate school. They now have two daughters and two dogs to keep them busy away from their respective practices.

A longtime resident of northern California, Dr. Thibedeau completed his Bachelor’s degree in Biology at Northern Arizona University, and earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at University of California at Davis. He updates his medical skills with 50 hours of annual continuing education. Dr. Thibedeau is active in several community organizations.


TERRI LAMP, DVM 
Dr. Lamp, a self-admitted military kid, has lived all over Europe and the United States, and the East Bay since 1992. She attended University of California/San Diego and The Ohio State University. Initially, her interests centered on aquatic exotics until she recognized an inherent surgery skill early in her career. 

After 16 years as a practice owner, she now concentrates on comprehensive care for cats and dogs in a general practice. She especially enjoys the challenges of internal medicine and surgery. Dr. Lamp loves the enduring strength of the family-centered practice a Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital. "The key to Hillcrest is its understanding of how cats and dogs interact with people," she says, "and how modern medicine has helped."
