“Everyone at this practice is very patient kind and knowledgeable. Went to see Dr. Byrd 10 years ago with our birds and now came back with two baby kittens. Everyone has been very informative in helping me learn the best way to take care of my kittens. I look forward to my visits there and talking with the entire staff. They definitely take their time with your pets and answer all your questions.”

“I’ve been taking my babies to Northern Oaks Bird & Animal Hospital for the last 15 years or so, and I always feel safe and secure about my visits. The staff and doctors are both caring and knowledgeable. When I lost my first baby girl to heart disease at the age of eleven, the staff members were more than compassionate. I moved several years ago and do not live as close to them as I used to, but I stayed with them because I trust them.”

“We recently had to say goodbye to a dear pet after 15 years of love and companionship. Dr. Byrd and her staff made this terrible day as wonderful as it could have been. Their kindness, care and compassion not only for my family, but for my dog, were unmatched by anything other service that I’ve ever received. The passing was gentle and calm and the care shown by everyone made the experience much less painful. Thank you for everything that you all do to care for these pets and their people, you make all the difference.”

“I’ve been bringing my pets here for over 15 years. They have seen us through bringing new fur babies into the family, as well as having to say goodbye to some. We have been through many surgeries both major and minor, and my animals have always received top-notch care. They have always shown compassion to all our animals. Most recently, they saved my dog from an obstruction after he swallowed some hard plastic items. I cannot speak highly enough for the staff and veterinarians at this office. Anytime I have had an urgent situation, they will move mountains to make sure that I can get my pet seen right away. They have had several staff members there for many years which speaks very highly about the practice overall. I would highly recommend this veterinarian practice.”

“I have to say a big THANK YOU to NOBAH for the comfort they gave to us and my dog Beau. Because of cancer he had to be euthanized and they were so sensitive to our pain. I just got a clay impression of his paw print in the mail- I had no idea they were going to do that. It made my heart smile! Thank you so much!!”

“Dr. Byrd, hard to find the right words. I am so comfortable with her care of my four legged family members. She is so up to date on Vet knowledge. I know this because my pets have some strange things that come up. She is there for us each and every time.”

“Outstanding service. Very caring for any pet taken there. We have used them for many years.”

– Dale W.

“Everyone here is always so gentle and loving with my Macaw, even the ones who are afraid of her big beak treat her like she’s their own. When my puppy had cancer they made her last days as easy and comfortable as possible and my puppy (who was afraid of everything and everyone) loved the tech caring for her.”

– Crystal M.

“Receptionists, staff and veterinarians are nothing but top notch. We trust our babies with them 110%. They truly have a heart for animals and are warm, friendly and professional. We don’t know what we’d do without them!!!”
– Lauren L.

“I have been using the Northern Oaks Bird and Animal hospital since 1993. Unfortunately my first visit as a teenager was to put my aging dog, with a broken leg , down. When I had parrots it was great to have Dr. Byrd treat them, the few times it was necessary. They have always been caring and gentle with my animals. I have cats that have seen the Dr’s a few times. As of January, I had to put one of my precious kitties down because of cancer. Since then I once again have a dog. The doctors, technicians and reception staff are all genuinely friendly and accommodating. They are so patient and concerned when a pet is uneasy and scared. They also recommended for me to bring my large puppy in for an occasional treat just so that he wouldn’t associate the vet with bad feelings. I highly recommend the Northern Oaks Bird and Animal Hospital.”

“Great, caring place. Always have taken my fur babies here!”

“I have been going to Dr. Byrd for over 18 years. I have been through many illnesses with my pets. I have many because I once did animal rescue. I have never been displeased with the service or treatment. As you can imagine I have had many euthanized here for many different illnesses. My guys are all seniors now, so it goes without saying, many are reaching end of life now. Becca Byrd makes the process so much easier. She is empathetic, compassionate and loving always. I could not do it without her. I adore the staff and I question the source of any negative comments. I am a happy parent of many cats and dogs and I have experienced many vets during my 30 years of animal rescue. Northern Oaks Bird & Animal Hospital are number 1, above all else. Number 1 over the 15 plus vets I have used in San Antonio and Corpus Christi.”

“I would highly recommend this animal hospital to anyone in need of a veterinarian. I brought my dog, Ty in and was very worried about him being sick. They made us both feel comfortable and showed they really wanted to help us. With the correct diagnosis and medication he’s now feeling so much better. I’m glad we put him in good hands.

Thank you for all that you guys do, I will definitely be bringing both my dogs in for check ups at this location from now on.”
