★★★★★ My fiancé and I just moved to the northside of Madison and I am so happy that Northside Animal Hospital will be our new vet! We just got home from our first visit and it was an awesome experience. We saw Andie and Sarah and they were both so kind and the exam was very thorough. They addressed all of our needs and took the time to get to know our two cats, Monty and Russell, and really listen to our concerns. I couldn’t recommend them enough and I feel so at ease knowing they are in the neighborhood ❤️Amanda C.Amanda C. ★★★★★ Northside Animal Hospital has been great with all of my pets. One of my cats was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago and they have been so supportive. I recommend Northside anytime a friend is looking for a new veterinary clinic.Emma S.Emma S. ★★★★★ I already gave them a 5 star review some time ago but I wanted to add that the staff are super helpful, kind, and caring.

We are so glad we take our dog to Northside!Jahlieh R. H.Jahlieh R. H. ★★★★★ I cannot say enough good about Northside Animal Hospital. I have been to many vets all around the country and this is the only one I felt like I truly trusted.They are incredibly compassionate and take the time to exhaust all the options. We have had some pretty interesting issues with our pets lately and Dr. Sarah has gone as far as to consult with an ophthalmologist outside of the office. I know they are super busy and this extra step does not go unnoticed.Anne L.Anne L. ★★★★★ Friendly staff, open to questions, don’t “milk” you for tests. Usually have appointments available within a reasonable time frame. Definitely would recommend!Ines B.Ines B. ★★★★★ Great people!!John MJohn M ★★★★★ Northside provides compassionate and excellent care for pets.

I highly recommend Northside Animal Hospital to anyone seeking veterinary services.When one of our dogs broke a fang, and our normal vet couldn’t see her for a week, I called Northside and they got her in the very next day.

Between helping ease my senior cat's passage from this earth and assisting my rescue dog-toddler as he's entered my life, the staff at Northside have offered unparalleled support for my fur family at every life stage.

Definitely worth the investment and patronage!!Eliya S.Eliya S. ★★★★★ The staff at Northside Animal Hospital are top notch! From the minute I walk in they care about my dog and listen to my concerns.

We felt so comfortable bringing our puppy and cat here for regular checkups. The vet, CVT and all other employees are so friendly, helpful and kind to our pets. They bring you in the room during checkups, make sure all your questions are answered, even ask before giving our puppy a treat (of course it's okay to give him PB but the thought of asking to be sure if very thoughtful) and make sure he's healthy. They aren't putting profits first, they actually care about the wellbeing of your pets and are very reasonable with their prices.Evan L.Evan L. ★★★★★ They always take good care of my babies!J R.J R. ★★★★★ Wonderful caring staff.Susie C.Susie C. ★★★★★ We were scheduled to have our new patient visit next month, so we weren't even patients yet when one of my dogs got sick. I didn't think it warranted the emergency vet, but I wanted to try to get in as soon as possible. I left a message after hours at Northside but by morning our poor pup had worsened. I was counting down the minutes until they opened so I could call, when I received a call from them! They had already listened to the message and were able to get us in within 30 minutes. That was a miracle in itself, but then they also showed me how to administer fluids myself and gave me the tools and meds to continue caring for her at home to hopefully prevent another visit. Seriously one of the best vet experiences we've ever had. They were kind, caring, and listened to our concerns. Thank you!Sara J.Sara J. ★★★★★ Kind and caring staffBrent S.Brent S. ★★★★★ I've taken our last three dogs here, and recently had to put our first one down. They where very compassionate and understanding, I cried like a baby and still miss her.Axis B.Axis B. ★★★★★ We love this place. We always know that our animals are in great hands!Bezi H.Bezi H. ★★★★★ Best Vet in Madison.kevin C.kevin C. ★★★★★ Wonderful staff. They treat the animals with such care and love.Jack G.Jack G. ★★★★★ My kitties and I are new clients of Northside, but I have nothing but positive things to say. I'm incredibly grateful for all of the patience and time they've given us. Our first visit (with both kitties) did not go well (they were basically fighting the whole time and very anxious). Dr. Ali and the techs were incredibly understanding and kind throughout. My second visit was with only one kitty- who was still skittish. Dr. Ali and the techs took their time with her and worked to calm her down as much as possible.I'm so grateful that we found this practice and that they are so close to where we live. Prices are fair too. Thanks Northside!BethBeth ★★★★★ What a great first vet visit! I really appreciated the fact that both the technician and doctor took the time to read my dog's prior medical history before our first appointment together. Then, I received a follow-up email after the appointment checking up on my dog on how he did with his vaccines, which I thought was very thoughtful and professional. I truly have nothing but positive things to say about my first visit, this facility, and the Northside staff!Geana G.Geana G. ★★★★★ We’ve been bringing our dogs and cats here for a few years now, and I have nothing but kind things to say. We were there today, and one of my dogs was very frightened of the blood draw, but the techs were so understanding and compassionate. It makes me feel safe knowing that my babies are getting care here; I know it’s going to be top notch!AT H.AT H. ★★★★★ Great vet! Have been taking my Manx cat Chester there since he was a kitten. They are always great with him.Jeff R.Jeff R. ★★★★★ Have been going here for years with a number of cats.

What a great first vet visit! I really appreciated the fact that both the technician and doctor took the time to read my dog s prior medical history before our first appointment together. Then to receive a follow-up email checking up on Dyno on how he did on his vaccines was very thoughtful. I truly have nothing but positive things to say about my visit, your facility, and your staff!
