Years of High Praise
Dawn A Weichler from Turtle Creek

I have been a client of Northview Animal Hospital for 20 years! Dr. Pleban took wonderful care of Sable throughout her entire life. When her time came to an end they were very supportive. They have also cared for my Kwanita and Santi (husky's). They get into everything, we have rushed to the hospital after ingesting albuteral and rat poison each time met at the door with immediate help. When my Santi died they were compassionate and caring. The staff always makes me feel like my kid is the best in the world. While in Haiti, Kwanita tore her ACL. We scheduled an appointment for as soon as I returned. Kwanita went in for surgery and today is running again without a care in the world Dr. Lansdowne did a wonderful job on her leg. Thank you to all the Dr's and staff at Northview, your the best!
