We consider the entire team at Northshore an extension of our family. Our pitbull Otis has been cared for at Northshore for over 5 years and no matter what the procedure he’s always excited to walk in the door. He’s greeted by the front desk team like a rockstar and receives the very best care with Dr. Coyne and Dr. Barron.Stephanie Peterson
Our family has been trusting Northshore Vet with our animals since Dr. Kim Barron opened her practice well over 20 years ago. We have been so pleased with the attention, expertise, and care given to us by Dr. Barron and her co-workers. We love the friendly and helpful reception team, the capable and communicative techs, and the highly competent veterinarians so much that we are continually referring other pet owners to the clinic. We are so grateful to have our pets cared for in such a whole team, loving manner. Thank you, Northshore Vet!!!Fred and Anne Wicknick
We have had hydrotherapy with both Caitlin and Haley as well, as my Pomeranian Julius recovers from his bilateral knee surgery. It’s been especially nice with this cold freezing weather to be able to still accomplish so much rehab for him. To my knowledge it’s the only hydro available in town and so that’s very convenient for us. I have seen incredible improvement from him and I’m sure a big part of it is the introduction of the hydro. He also did some PT with Caitlin which was really excellent.
I just can’t say enough good things about everyone at North Shore Vet. My pomchi Chef is turning 10 this year and I have never taken him anywhere else, and I never would. For ten years we have been fortunate enough to receive the best care from the entire team who I can only describe as loving and caring. It’s really my pleasure to give you this feedback and I hope some part of it is useful. I will continue to refer everyone I know to you guys.
I’ve been a regular patient of Dr. Barron’s since I came to live with my “peeps” Mom and Dad more than seven years ago.
Please, allow me to introduce myself. I’m a 13 1/2 year old Silver Schnauzer and in pretty good shape, thanks in part to the wonderful care I’ve received at Northshore. You see, I was already a mature lady of six years old (and quite overweight) when I came out of rescue to live with Mom and Dad. So thanks to a proper diet by Mom, lots of exercise by Dad, kind, loving, and consistent rules, comfortable living conditions, and great medical care by everyone at Northshore Veterinary Hospital, I am doing very well as a senior citizen.
Many happy tail wags to you always,"Carys"
When moving to a new community it can be difficult choosing a Vet. You don’t want just anyone…you want someone who is caring and compassionate and who also has great respect for your concerns about the health of your animals. And most important, you want a Vet you feel you can truly trust. Several years ago I asked friends who obviously care as much about their dogs as I do mine and found Northshore Veterinary Hospital was at the top of their list. I discovered they were right on since everyone I have met there is friendly and extremely helpful, whether it be a receptionist, Vet tech or my “very own” wonderful Vet! I appreciate having a Vet who listens, asks questions, makes good, sound suggestions, and at the same time gets a real kick out of getting on the floor and having a moment of play with my active, joyful new puppy or who quietly bends down to give my lovely older dog a big warm hug. I feel fortunate to have found the folks at Northshore!Sue Costley
WINSTON’S AWFUL GAS CLOUD
Hi, my name is Winston. I’m an OES, who came to Phyllis and Ray via the OESROWS group. Apparently I came with the gift of passing a room-clearing gas cloud.
I go everywhere with Ray and especially enjoy being a member of the Monday evening men’s bible study at church. After greeting all my friends and getting a drink I’ll lie down and snooze. However, I used to have this problem of passing gas in the evening. Pastor Bob says I am the “nuclear option” and the envy of every eighth grade boy.
Ray says that in addition to burning eyes and stinking up the place, my gas would peel paint and stain tile, whatever that means. He also found my gas attacks overpowering at home in the evenings. So he tried sprinkling probiotics on my food but nothing changed for my family or friends.
One day Ray went to the vet’s office and asked the nice woman (Danielle) at the desk if there was a K-9 “Beano” whatever that is. She said to have me checked for a Giardia infection, and if that was not the issue to try OPTA GEST, which she gives to her dog. The test must have showed that I didn’t have Giardia, because Ray got me some of this OPTA GEST powder to sprinkle on my food. Food still tastes OK and after a few weeks my gut feels better and I don’t hear any complaining about awful gas attacks. That powder must work because the guys are glad to see me again.
NOTE: OPTA GEST is a prebiotic made from chicory root and some other plants to aid digestion. In addition to curing Winston’s gas, his stools are much firmer and easy to pick up. That feature made it easy for me (Ray) to clean up after Winston’s only indoor accident at the Sheriff’s Work Center one morning when we were visiting our jail deputy friends.

We’ve been bringing our large family of furries to Northshore for seventeen years. We always know that our animals will receive the utmost care and compassion, and that we will too. Having several adopted pets with chronic health issues, we especially appreciate the access to alternative treatments such as hydrotherapy, laser, and acupuncture. The staff have become friends and always know me when I call. Furthermore they always find room when there is an emergency. I can’t recommend them enough!Andrea Gabriel
We are extremely happy that Northshore Vet Hospital added the water treadmill as an option for after surgery care. Our Newfoundland, Selkie, recently had hip surgery and has been having weekly treadmill sessions to speed her recovery. Caitlin has been managing Selkie’s therapy and is very knowledgeable about the equipment and in assessing Selkie’s progress. Selkie has successfully recovered from her recent surgery, due largely to having the treadmill equipment available. We would highly recommend utilizing the water treadmill for any dog who has had skeletal surgery, any dog suffering from arthritis or any dog that is overweight.Ann Rushing & Karl Kuntz
What a lovely group of ladies working at Northshore Veterinary Hospital!After recently moving to Washington, Bellingham, with no Veterinary Doctor in place yet I had to take my 14yr old Yorkie into Emergency Vet services, who then transferred her over to Northshore.
They welcomed us in on very short notice and did everything they could to save my baby girl.
Thank you Dr Cook for being so gentle & kind during a very difficult time.
I am grateful I now have a place I trust to bring my other healthy Terrier mix rescue, Teddy boy for his check ups & cleanings.
Thanks again for being there for me Northshore ladies You rock!!
New Customer For sure,
