    We could not believe our dog

  • Chloe's Surgery

    -Mike Flaska from Bethlehem, PA
    Pet Name: Chloe

    Pet Image I have taken my dog Chloe to VCA Northside since we got her in 2007. We recently found a lump on her and brought her in to be checked out. Dr. Place immediately had a suspicion that she would need surgery, and, once the biopsy came back she immediately called to have the surgery scheduled. Dr. Place and the staff were very caring and professional during this stressful time and went the extra mile for answering all of my questions and concerns. The surgery went well and Chloe is back to her vibrant self. Dr. Place and the staff at VCA Northside treat my pet like she was theirs, and make me feel like she is in capable hands. Thank You!

    Pet Name: Dewey

    Pet Image Hello fellow PA animal lovers. My name is Sue Corvelli. I'm originally from northern NJ and was accustomed to excellent Vet hospitals in NJ. After searching for Vets in eastern PA and experiencing not-so-excellent services I found VCA Northside Animal Hospital in Bethlehem. I’ve been their customer for the past 7+ years and very happy! Their staff is friendly and genuinely concerned. They go the extra mile. I do have my favorites and adore Dr. Amanda Place and Dr. Jessica Russell. They’re all very capable!
