  • "When we got out first dogs in 2003 Northside was recommended to us. We have had 3 dogs and have had excellent service and care. When it was time for each of our first two dogs to cross the rainbow bridge, they were great, very caring and compassionate. We are now down to 1 dog and she just had surgery there. They were all great. Dr. Clardy took the time to explain everything before and after. Thank you Dr. Clardy for taking such good care of our Missy and for all the care that you and everyone else always gave to our Eddie and Freddie."

  • "Today was the first time I visited the hospital and I was so glad that I did. I have two children, a 3 year old and a 10 month year old. As I got my children out of the car, a receptionist greeted me and asked if she could help grab my pup. She said she saw me take out my double stroller over the camera. It was extremely kind for her to come out and help me. We were checked in and taken right into an exam room. My pup saw Dr White, who gave him his vaccinations while giving him some love too, he didn't even notice the shots were given. Our whole visit took us 20 minutes! So not what I expected for a walk in clinic! I brought waters, snacks, and toys for the children; thinking we'd be there for at least an hour. I highly recommend letting Northside take care of your pet!"
