Northside Veterinary Clinic has been proudly serving Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 1997. When we opened our doors 25 years ago, our dream of becoming Williamsburg's first integrative veterinary clinic became a reality. Since then, our team has gone above and beyond to practice medicine while staying true to the beliefs our foundation was built upon. Every patient is entitled to treatment rooted in care, respect and understanding. We have built upon those core values to create a full-service, state-of-the-art animal hospital and trusted staple of our community.
Our primary focus is supporting our patient's health and wellness journey through preventative medicine at any season of life. Services offered at NVC include wellness exams, vaccinations and parasite prevention/treatment, dental exams, spaying/neutering, diagnostics, holistic and alternative care, surgical procedures, euthanasia, companion laser therapy, and more. Our onsite laboratory allows us to expedite your pet's test results, even during their appointment slot. We also offer emergency treatment services and have a veterinarian on call for emergencies every day from 7 am to 10 pm. If you prefer a more integrated medical approach to your pet's care, holistic or alternative medical treatments are available at NVC. Our highly experienced team offers treatments such as acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, and traditional Chinese medicine.
We work together with clients to ensure, as a team, our patients are receiving the highest level of personalized treatment options available to them in the New York City area. Between our extremely experienced veterinarians and their vast knowledge base, our state-of-the-art technology, and the highly equipped facility we utilize every day at NVC, you can feel at ease knowing that your pet is in excellent hands. Regardless of their needs, we are confident that we will go beyond meeting your expectations while ensuring your pet feels comfortable, safe, and cared for.
Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet's head, body and tail, and all his assorted cavities. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your veterinarian maybe in order. Like you, your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect. It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you need to change vets, it's good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.
Our clinic has the qualified staff and facilities to undertake surgery and perform procedures requiring anesthesia, such as teeth cleaning. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few exams, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure they might need an IV drip; antibiotics may be necessary before and after.
One of our doctors may refer you to a specialist, veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care, if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
