  • Thank You

    -Rebecca from Finleyville, PA
    Pet Name: Levi

    Pet Image The doctors and staff here at Northview are top notch!!! After having an unpleasant experience and my concerns regarding my kitty's health dismissed at a different animal hospital, I decided to come to VCA Northview for a second opinion and I am glad I did. They placed him in surgery the same day and saved his life. The X-rays, labs and tests are very thorough and I received four phone calls in one day to make sure I was up to date on my little one's procedure and recovery. Everyone here at VCA Northview treats you and your pet with the utmost care and compassion!

  • compassionate staff

    -Diana T from Pgh, PA
    Pet Name: Dottie

    We brought our beloved Maltese to the hospital after she suddenly became very ill and began bleeding from her urethra. Unfortunately, she passed on the trip to the hospital. We didn't know this until we got there because I had her wrapped in a blanket. The male staff member who met us at the door and gave us this heartbreaking news was extremely compassionate and understood our grief, as was the female vet who made arrangements for us. I am very thankful for their compassion and support. Diana T.

  • Deepest Appreciation

    -Sandy Wolfe and Family from Munhall, PA
    Pet Name: Samson Edward Wolfe-Sammy

    Pet Image We can never fully express our appreciation for the kindness and compassion shown to our beloved Sammy and our family by Dr. Sisk and the staff at Northview. Our Sammy was taken back to heaven on December 26, but when we came to get his earthly body the compassion from your staff continued. God Bless all of you.

  • Years of High Praise

    -Dawn A Weichler from Turtle Creek, PA
    Pet Name: Kwanita

    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!

    Pet Image Words can't express the gratitude I have for you both and your entire staff. When all others turned us away, you all opened your doors and hearts to help our Maddy. As she is one of our family members her well being means so much to us and her 2 fury sisters at home, too. As we missed her terribly while she was staying with you, we knew she was well taken care of. Any call or any question we made or had your staff answered with compassion.

  • Thank You Dr. Assandri and Staff

    -Dana Miloaga from Pittsburgh, PA
    Pet Name: Addabelle

    Pet Image We would like to thank the whole team at VCA Northview Animal Hospital Specialty Referral Center for their competent and prompt care and support through the past two years. Our dog was about four years old when she has been diagnosed with Lymphoma. She lived with it for two full and very happy years. Addabelle never dreaded to go to the hospital, where everybody knew her name and she often slept through chemo in the arms of caring technicians. Treatment options were always clearly presented and discussed with us, and we have been constantly educated about how to anticipate and prevent side effects so that dog’s quality of life did not diminish. Thank you!
