DeWitt Animal Hospital - Our Doctors


Dr. Bruce C. Hill

Education: Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine 1980

I am a 1980 graduate of Michigan State University School of Veterinary Medicine. My first year after graduation was spent at a mixed animal practice, Green Mountain Veterinary Hospital, in Manchester Center, VT. My next four years in practice were spent at the Mount Nittany Veterinary Hospital, also a mixed practice, in State College, PA. In 1985, DeWitt Animal Hospital, established in 1947, was purchased from Dr. James DeWitt. I had worked for Dr. DeWitt while attending the University of Rhode Island. When he decided to retire, he offered me the opportunity to return home to a well-respected and busy small animal practice. The practice moved from North Attleboro to its present location in Plainville, Massachusetts in 1991. While I enjoyed traveling to the farms and helping the great hardworking farmers, I do not miss the late night, middle of winter calls. I have spent my career striving to be the best generalist I can be while meeting the challenges of running a small business and keeping up with an explosion of knowledge and a changing profession. I greatly value the long term relationship and trust many clients have honored me with. The pandemic changed much for all of us, including how veterinary practices operate. After 42 years of practice, I have limited myself to one day a week seeing patients and one day doing procedures along with filling in when needed. 

I am licensed in MA and RI, hold USDA accreditation, and I am a member of the AVMA, MVMA and RIVMA.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and family (including a grandson and three granddaughters), travel (pre-covid) and when the weather is good, getting out on my HARLEY. My oldest son, Craig, and my daughter, Sarah graduated from Veterinary School in the spring of 2013. Craig joined our team after earning his DVM degree. Sarah completed a one year internship before joining our team in July, 2014. Chris, Sarah’s twin brother who just happens to have married a veterinarian, is a software engineer for an online app called Sleeper.

She is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and USDA accredited. Sarah enjoys family time (they have a young son and daughter) and travel. She and her husband, a nurse and former Marine, spend much time hiking with their 3 German Shorthaired Pointers and 1 year old son. She also has one cat named King Louis.
