★★★★★ I took my animals there for several years before getting a job there. You know how they sometimes ask to take your pet in back for a nail trim? Did you wonder if they are as good to them back there as they are in front of you? Well, they are! That's why I still take mine there even though I don't work there anymore. Not just quality care, loving care.🥰Diana L.Diana L. ★★★★★ They do what they say they will.

We panic called last week when our 8 month old kitten got very sick in a very scary way. We were able to get him into an appointment northside same day and worked with us on all of our concerns, financial and prioritizing the health of our little guy while being realistic. Due to their care, he is now very much on the mend! They followed up with us probably four times, and we were able to ask questions to set him up for the best possible post care. I don’t know if our cat would still be here if it wasn’t for the care katie and dr. Akorn showed when I was also very emotional. Can not thank all the staff here enough!!!!!jess N.jess N. ★★★★★ I took my cat, Pepper, for her post adoption checkup at the Northside Animal Hospital last week. They were very kind to Pepper and me.

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.

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.

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. Though their services can be expensive (as is the case with all vet care), they're always considerate of my financial needs and can still develop effective care plans for a tighter budget. 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. They offer affordable services and let me know what is absolutely necessary and what is recommended. There is no pressure to upgrade, but still make sure my dog is taken care of.

I have since moved away, but still make the drive to have such good care for my dog.Tracy D.Tracy D. ★★★★★ We have called multiple times in emergency situations and Northside Animal Hospital always finds a way to work us in.

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.

Nicest people working in this office. My dogs are loved and extremely well cared for. Care directives are always very clearly conveyed with follow-up suggestions.

Dana F.

All staff is absolutely amazing with Boston. Makes the vet experience so much easier in a Mama. Boston is so loved and well cared for here. Dr Olson- you’re great and thanks so much for all you do/did for Boston bug! I am so grateful for you all!

Court O.

Dr. Shreve was fantastic. She communicated well and paid attention. She accomplished our complicated task in a prompt and efficient manner.

Shel M.

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!
