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. To see her that Sunday so happy to see us and jumping all over us...we knew that we chose the right hospital with the right staff. Thank you for giving us Maddy back...she is trilled to be back home with her sisters and to sunbath in her window.

Pet Name: Levi
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!

Moe's second chance
-Elijah Wiegmann from Pittsburgh , PA
Pet Name: Moe
Without VCA Northview, I'm not sure our dog Moe would still be here. He escaped our fence and got hit by a car in our neighborhood. We rushed him to the hospital late at night and were helped by a very confident and comforting staff. The next day, Dr. Deanna Purvis discussed our options and made us feel at ease with the surgery Moe was facing. She also was caring and polite as we spent time with him before the procedure. Moe is fully recovered now and doesn't miss a beat. Thank you all for everything you do for our pets!
-Peggy Montgomery from Tarentum, PA
Pet Name: SASSY
Thank You Dr KENNON and Dr Hayworth for helping me with my SASSY. I MISS her so much. You took good care of her all this years. Thank You
Dr. Pleban is Outstanding
-Daniele Caruso from Allison Park, PA
Pet Name: Dante Caruso
Dr. Denise Pleban has been a true partner in the care of our english bulldog Dante for 10+ years. She always trusted my instincts and I trusted her direction. She has helped me with health maintenance in our unhealthy dog since I met her in 2004. There were times we didn't think he would see 2 let alone 10. Dr. Pleban ALWAYS called, whether it was to answer my questions, follow up on treatments and sometimes just to see how he was doing. Dante was loved and cherished during his overnight stays, I trusted and they always delivered. I owe them a lot. The entire team, Dr. Pleban, the med techs and the front desk personal are top notch. I could not have gotten through that final day without them. Dr. Pleban and team made the unbearable goodbye a beautiful experience.
Great group of doctors and staff
-Amber from Bethel Park, PA
Pet Name: Dawson
After the treatment my Golden Retriever, Dawson, received I would never consider using another vet. For the first several years of his life Dawson had the normal Golden allergies and skin/ear infections for which we saw Dr. Pleban several times a year. By age 9 he developed more serious health problems which eventually led to him having seizures. We made many trips to VCA Northview both during the day and in the middle of the night to get his seizures under control. Unfortunately I lost him on June 23, 2014, 2 weeks shy of his 13th birthday. I can't thank Dr. Pleban, Dr. Henry, Dr. McKlveen (who we saw during a lot of his late night visits), Dr. Assandri (on the Specialty side), the front desk staff and vet techs (especially Debbie and Christina) enough for the care and compassion they showed not only to Dawson but also to me. They were always so patient with my many questions and never made me feel like I was crazy or overreacting. If you ever had a dog with seizures you can understand how scary they can be! I always felt like the staff at VCA Northview cared for Dawson as much as I did. Thank you again for all the care, attention, kindness and compassion you show not only to the animals you care for but also to their owners.
-Alfred Mancini from Pittsburgh, PA
Dr Kennon always gave the added touch to Cuddles, Mackie and Hennessey. I enjoyed seeing her name in the article about Scooter. Thanks to Dr K for many years of very fine service. Alfred Mancini, MD
Love Dr. Pleban
-Mary Dulgeroff from Pittsburgh, PA
I have birds and there are very few places that actually know how to diagnose and treat birds. I have been bringing my birds to VCA Northview for approximately 20 years and have to say I love, love, LOVE Dr. Pleban. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and one of the best vets I have ever been to. She understands that my cockatiels aren't "just birds" to me and treats me and them with respect and concern. I have complete confidence in her and in all the vets at VCA Northview. I am so sure of their care, I convinced my sister to take her pets (dog, cat, macaw) there also. Can't go wrong at VCA Northview.
Everyone was so kind
-Peter and Joanie Doas from Weatherford, TX
Pet Name: Philo
We drove from North Texas to Pittsburgh to visit family, and our 8 yr. old bunny Philo got red and sore paws from the pet transport cage during the trip. Dr. Vernasco gave him some medicine for the pain and inflammation, and Philo made a complete recovery within days. We were all able to enjoy our visit to Pittsburgh, and Philo and his mate Holly made the trip home with no problems. We are so thankful to Dr. Vernasco and the staff for their help and kindness when we were so far from home.
