We had to sadly say goodbye to our beautiful Bella, our 12.5 years old Toy Poodle on 2 Jan 2024. Dr Ru provided us as much information and support from the beginning of Bella's decline in health before Christmas and his knowledge, kindness, compassion and wise counsel was greatly appreciated at what was a very emotional and sad time for us in letting our fur child go. We cannot express enough our gratitude to Ru for his professionalism and care as he guided as through this difficult and heart breaking time. We have been with North Hill since Bella was a 9 week old pup and wish also to thank Sarah and all the team for your service and support over the past 12 and a half years.

Thank you to Dr Ru for tending to Barry after he got nipped on the face this morning. Ru has a lovely bedside manner and genuinely cares about his patients. He offers practical advice and good education for informed decision making in ongoing care.

I spoke with Kelly on the phone after hours regarding my dogs and she quickly acted and had Danielle meet me in the clinic. Danielle explained everything in detail so I knew exactly what she was doing at all times. She was extremely friendly and made both me and my pets feel comfortable.

Huge thank you to everyone at North Hill Veterinary Clinic, especially Craig. I am extremely grateful to have found this Veterinary clinic and I can not thank him enough for his help with one of our steers today.

He arrived promptly and had everything he needed to make a rapid and accurate diagnosis and treatment for our beautiful boy. He explained everything I needed to know about our steers condition & treatment.

They are extremely knowledgeable, they don't push products on you or give unnecessary medication. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a vet.

They were by far the best experience I have ever had with a veterinary clinic.

They care as much about our animals as we do. The team is amazing and we will not go anywhere else.

Thank you so much.

My 10 year old Lab moved up here yesterday and suffers dreadfully with arthritic pain. Jess, at the front desk, was just wonderful, she got us in at very short notice and the vet, Hannah, was the kindest, most lovely vet to have ever handled my pup. Their services are so top notch and prices are very reasonable. So grateful to have done my research prior to choosing a vet clinic in Armidale! Thank you, North Hill!

Annaliese (via Facebook) - Jan 2020

I love everyone there!!
Zoe & Cath are awesome and do my hair and nails on point!! Eddie is awesome he is always smiling and talking to me!
The vets are great Sarah gave me about 2982 pats yesterday and Fiona & Hannah have been treating my ear and I already feel so much better!! And I really like the treats they gave me I hope my mum gets some for me 😋 and Craig is the best orthopaedic vet ever he fixed my knee last year. Highly recommend if you are a Staffy because you will definitely get bonus pats and kisses off my mum Jess!!
All round 10/10!!
I love them all

I'm so thankful for the North Hill Vet Clinic. My dog had to be rushed in tonight for a c section and they were so kind they even picked her up and dropped her off for me as I'm a single mother of two with no licence. No words can describe how thankful and appreciative I am because if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have my girl and her ten gorgeous puppies with me right now. Thankyou North Hill Vets!

Caroline (via Facebook) - Sep 2017

I cannot thank everybody at North Hill Vet Clinic enough – we took our two guardian maremma dogs (Joe and Annie) to get desexed here last Friday - something we were not looking forward to, given they are normally so protective of us and their calves – we had to travel 1.5 hours to get them both there which was no easy feat, however when we arrived at the clinic they made the whole experience so easy and took the stress out of it for us. We were able to drop them off right at the back door and they were even allowed to stay in overnight. They are now recovering really well. Thanks so much everyone!

Kathy (via Facebook) - Aug 2017

Thank you for taking my precious Sadie in the middle of the night even though it was too late.

Courtney Woodford - Oct 2016

It's been a while since I've been to this vet clinic (as I've moved away from Armidale) but I have yet to find a vet that is as awesome as these guys, particularly Emma. They were compassionate, very well priced, friendly and lovely to work with.

Sam Bowden - Feb 2016

The vets at North Hill tried very gallantly to save my sister's dog from dog attack injuries and I can't recommend them enough. They are great communicators and very compassionate. It was good to know he had the best care, despite the sad outcome.

Nicole Lobry de Bruyn - Dec 2015

We unfortunately have had a lot of our pets need some very immediate help and north hill veterinary clinic have always gone above and beyond. They have kept us in the loop no matter what the time and explain everything in terms we can understand. they even took one of our pets home so they could monitor her over night. We are very grateful to have such comitted, honest and knowledgable vets
