Testimonials

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.

“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!”

“The staff was very knowledgeable and the veternarian spent more time with us sharing education and answering questions than our human primary care doctor. 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!”

“I have been in rescue for 20 years and have been to almost every clinic in town. NPAH, is by far the most caring, compassionate and knowledgeable place around. Even if we disagree on matters of pet care, they are open to learning new protocols using natural products such as essential oils.”
