At North Shore Veterinary Hospital (NSVH), the connection you have with your animal companion is our primary focus. As animal lovers and health care providers, we offer not only the highest level of medical care, but also value the role these special animals play in our lives. We strive to acknowledge, enhance, and honor this unique relationship and do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Instead, we provide individualized care that recognizes what is best for you, your pet, and your family.
Our hospital has served the Duluth area for over 65 years. We have been fully accredited with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) since 1979—a standard that only 12% to 15% of the hospitals in the country have achieved. We adhere to low-stress handling techniques and principles to ensure the least-stressful visit possible for your pets. Learn more about our services.
The human-animal bond is one of the strongest on Earth, and the best way to establish it is to start your relationship off on the right foot (or paw!). Beginnings mean everything, so we encourage you to check out our puppy and kitten services and to schedule regular visits to demonstrate your pet is a valued member of your family. From selecting the right companion to socialization and behavioral training, North Shore Veterinary Hospital is here for you and your pet every step of the way.
While your pet certainly appreciates the basics, we also offer products and services to deepen and strengthen your mutual bond. Through ongoing preventive health care and effective treatment of injury and disease, we can help you and your pet have a longer, more fulfilling relationship.
At NSVH, we strive to provide the highest quality and most compassionate, individualized care possible. Learn more about our services, which are the blueprints for maximizing trust and love between you and your pet.
There’s nothing more uniquely human than the feelings of joy we have for our beloved pets. As animal lovers, we want to celebrate the connection you have with your companion, and there are many ways you can share those precious moments with us. From special events to picture galleries, we can help make pet ownership one of the more special aspects of life.
It’s proven that having a pet significantly increases our happiness, so you’re not being silly when you celebrate the bond between you and your pet – you’re simply being human!
We help you say goodbye by remembering the beauty of your pet and your shared love. Unfortunately, our pets have a shorter lifespan than us, and even with the best health care, we must eventually cope with the loss of our beloved companions.
To help you through this difficult time, we provide a variety of compassionate services both at our hospital and at home. We also have a number of options to help you permanently honor your special friend.
As loving pet owners, we are committed to helping you navigate your grief and bring honor to the process of saying goodbye. We believe in making the experience beautiful and memorable, not morose.
