We are a well-established, full service hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care for feline and canine patients. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventative care for young, healthy pets, early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages and complete medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.
North Avenue Animal Animal Hospital recognizes the special relationship that exists between people and pets called the human-animal bond. We aim to foster and support that bond through excellent patient care and superior customer service.

Since 1999 our hospital has voluntarily achieved the high standards of The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), qualifying us as an accredited member.
We feel our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy for many years to come!
