“Every staff member was super helpful and nice. It is hard to get good customer service in this day and age and they delivered! I would highly recommend anyone to visit this office with their pets. Will definitely make this a permanent place to take my kitties if anything were to happen! 10/10”

“So thankful for the doctors and vet techs that work at North Powers Animal Hospital. They were able to squeeze my girl in for an appointment and help her with her pain! They took such good care of her and was so good to explain everything they did and kept me informed with what was happening. Thank you for your kindness and help!”

“I don’t write a ton of reviews. It is either for awesome service or terrible service. This review is because this Vet and clinic is top notch. There are not enough stars to give NP Animal Hospital. We had never been there as we are fairly new to Colorado Springs and travel to Texas and the Springs often. Our vet that we normally see is in Texas. Animal Hospital worked us in, not even knowing our Great Dane. They were so very kind and loving towards us as they shared the news that she had a mass on her spleen. The doctors explained throughly all of our options for her. Unfortunately, the cancer took her life quickly. The following week we had to put our beloved pet down. The doctor and owner sat with us after closing hours to go over everything again with our family. They allowed us to all be in the room as the put her to sleep for the last time. We were all very emotional and they were so sweet and kind to us. The office later sent us a card to tell us how sorry they were that we had lost our beloved pet. I highly recommend this clinic. They seem very knowledgeable and truly seem to care for animals and their owners. If we can ever love a pet again, we will be back.”

“I have to say I have never known a dog to love going to the vet so much! My baby Trixie gets so excited to come and see her people friends here! Thank you for taking care of her!”

-Mike R.

“I recently had to say goodbye to my best friend. North Powers Animal Hospital has been taking care of him for the last few months. I couldn’t have asked for more caring, professional, responsive staff. Dr. Welfare is one of the best veterinary doctors I have met. He was so caring to myself and my dog. Always there to answer any questions. Very straight forward with me and was always wanting to do the best for my dog. I appreciate everything they did for tucker. I also appreciate how they treated my pet as their own. They have had nothing but kind words and I will continue to take my pets to Dr. welfare. They are the best!”

-Paula S.

“Love the staff and how they treat my pets! I always know they’re going to take awesome care of my animals whether it’s a regular check up or if it’s surgery. So thankful for such good doctors and techs!”

-Victoria S.

“My girlfriend’s family has trusted Dr. Welfare for years, so when we adopted a new puppy, it was an easy choice. Now, having said that, I’ve had pets my whole life and have used several other veterinary offices. They’ve been fine and I genuinely had no complaints. However, now that we’ve had multiple appointments with Dr. Welfare I can say that this place is like no other. Amazing medical care with a tremendous bedside (telephone, lol covid) manner. I genuinely felt myself wishing that he was a people Dr. so he could be our doctor as well. We will settle for letting our little puppy experience the best medical care that I believe is even possible. If you have any hesitation, move past it and book your appointment. This place is the real deal and my pets have never had it so good.”

“North Powers Animal is the BEST! Dr. Carlson is so compassionate, thorough, skilled and knowledgeable. We really appreciate how she takes her time, explains things in a way that is easy to understand, and is so willing to answer questions.”

-Patti Z.

“I just wanted to say how grateful Gary and I are at how much care and attention the newest member of our family, our sweet little angel, Charlie has received since we adopted him 3 weeks ago. From the kind, wonderful, and professional front desk staff like Cheryl and others to the kind, patient, and understanding team behind the scenes like Nancy, Dr. Smith (for his wellness check), and Dr. Markel (for his teeth cleaning and oral care). You have made Charlie and us feel like family! Charlie is the first pup we have been able to adopt in some time (20 years at least for me) and all of the education and care we have received in order to be the best pup parents we can be is truly invaluable to us! So thank you North Powers Animal Hospital! As a former member of the veterinary hospital field, I can honestly say this is the best and most professional team I have ever witnessed! Thank you again and God Bless you all!”

-Melissa B.

“Why can’t they all be like North Powers Animal Hospital?? Sigh. They are ALWAYS amazing. Always accommodating. Helpful. Kind. Patient. And Dr. Welfare is highly recommended!!! My dogs honestly love him- my bigger Doodle does for sure. You won’t find a better vet in the Springs. Thank you!”

-Jenetts J.

They also look to offer the best animal healthcare possible by promoting preventative care and running the most advanced diagnostics available.”

“I just wanted to say thanks to NPAH. I’ve been bringing my cat here for a year and a half. The front desk staff are always kind and courteous. They do an amazing job of juggling the phones and patients every time I’m in, and always ensure you are taken care of. On my most recent visit I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Smith. My cat has kidney issues that are advancing, and she did a wonderful job of patiently and kindly explaining all of the issues and what could be done. This is a great animal hospital with a great team. I highly recommend them!”
