The service was prompt.Randall H.Randall H. ★★★★★ We love the North Pole Veterinary Hospital!Jack's favorite is Dr. Lovely.Grady thinks that Dr Brown Is "EGG-ceptional" and loves the peanut butter treats that keep him rolling around(See Photo).Suni L.Suni L. ★★★★★ I have always received not only professional but very personal service at the North Pole clinic.Kathleen L.Kathleen L. ★★★★★ So thankful to everyone at North pole vet for taking care of my boy. He had a loose tooth and it was bugging him, called to see if I could get him in same day, North pole was very accommodating and got him seen very quickly. My dog can be very anxious normally but with his tooth he was even more so; but the staff was amazing at making him comfortable and getting his tooth pulled.C LC L ★★★★★ I can't say how grateful I am to North Pole Veterinary Hospital! They treat ALL of my dogs as if they were their own; with genuine concern and compassion. I had the misfortune to lose a dog to seizures and was amazed at the lengths they went to research any/all new treatments available to save him! When I first moved here I had visited a couple of other clinics in town and was treated rudely by their desk staff and as a number by the Vet. I believe North Pole has accumulated the best group of Vets and Techs in all of Fairbanks and have loved to watch the business grow and expand to what is is today. The new remodel is so contemporary and absolutely beautiful! I'm so thankful they were able to stay open and NOT close during the remodel, or Covid, because God knows I needed them a few times during!Professional and courteous staff, large number of vets on staff allowing appointments to be scheduled sooner.

They have an amazing caring compassionate staff from the receptionists to the vet techs and the veterinarians. Our encounters with Drs. Borghese and Link have been nothing but positive. Even when we had our 14 year old beagle put to sleep, I couldn't have asked for a more caring compassionate veterinarian then Dr. Borghese. Unless it is a dire emergency we will not go anywhere else for our pets care.Roberta B.Roberta B. ★★★★★ Really helpful and supportive during a stressful time.Abby W.Abby W. ★★★★★ They are probably the best vet in the area.

They have always been excellent with my animals and truly have and show compassion for them. I never feel they are pushing a diagnostic test or procedure to make money but truly want to do what's best for my pet. I used to have quite the menagerie with 5 cats and two medium to bigger dogs but now have just 4 cats. I have never felt rushed and both the docs and the techs are happy to explain a procedure until I understand what it is and why it would be good for my pet. I couldn't ask for more skilled, capable hands or loving hearts than the people at this practice. I highly recommend them!Jenny H.Jenny H. ★★★★★ Friendly, helpful staff that clearly care for your animals at least as much as you do!Colin H.Colin H. ★★★★★ I've been going to NPVH with my dogs for 5 years.

Absolutely love North Pole Veterinary Hospital! Our senior citizen pound rescue gave us a scare this morning, we called in at 8am and were given a same day 930am appointment to have him seen. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and informative from the very start. We saw Doctor Brown and she was very informative and loving with everything about our Max. We left the facility feeling like family and will definitely be continuing treatment with Doctor Brown.

They know what they’re doing. Took really good care of my Nyla for her first visit. She was in a good mood the entire time!

Emijah S

Front desk staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. All of the vets I’ve met here over the years have taken the time to make my dogs comfortable, educate me, and provide great service and recommendations at affordable prices. My dogs even get excited when it’s time to go to the vet!

Hannah M

Hands down the best vets I have ever been to. The facility is fantastic, the staff are super friendly, the vets actually care about your pets. My dog is a little scared of new people and after telling the vets this, they worked with my dog to get him comfortable before administering shots. Love this place. If you have animals that need a vet, take them HERE!

Kevin R

I have been taking all my animals there since 1996. They are extremely professional and the staff is always so friendly. The office is very clean and seems to be well organized. The wait time is minimum and everything is on schedule. My last visit was to get my dog neutered and it went smoothly. I think I was more nervous than my dog. They followed up with a courtesy call and I was able to let them know he is healing up wonderfully. They did a fantastic job. Thank you for taking such good care of my fur babies.
