About Southside Animal Hospital

In-house Pharmacy

We carry a full line of medications for your pets.

By law, we are required to have a valid patient/doctor relationship to write or dispense a prescription. This means, in order to obtain a prescription, your pet will need to have a recent exam by one of our veterinarians. Please remember to call ahead should you need a refill of prescription medication.

Client Testimonials & Reviews

Our staff at Southside Animal Hospital values feedback from our clients. Here is just a small sample of the hundreds of happy and healthy pets that we have cared for since 1996.

Always had great interactions with the Vets & the other staff. We had two 'geriatric' (11 to 13yrs) 60lbs dogs they've been great with. Routine checks and maintenance medications. Always practical and willing to discuss options.

As always they were helpful, thoughtful, and answered all of my questions. We've been going there for about 25 years and wouldn't go anywhere else.

Virginia H.

I adopted a pet from the local animal shelter and when no other clinics would accept new clients, they were there. They got me in quickly and were very professional. They are super friendly and I know my kitty will be in great hands with them.
