Expert Veterinary care has been provided to pet owners in Staten Island,
NY (and beyond) since 1975 by the veterinarians and staff at Northside Animal Hospital. As
a private, veterinarian owned practice, we specialize in the veterinary care of dogs, cats,
birds, and all exotic pets including but not limited to; fish, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles,
iguanas, rats, snakes, turtles. We also provide specialized
surgery as is often required for the Bulldog and Shar Pei. Our level
of personal attention and expert care is difficult to find in today's world
of corporate veterinary care.
Northside Animal Hospital's state of the art veterinary
computer system assures that we have the complete
medical history of all our patients at our fingertips. See our
page for more information about our computer system (that is likely
more advanced than that of your personal MD).
