Mountainside came highly recommended by so many. So I decided to give them a shot. Wow what an amazing staff. Every single one of them were so warm and welcoming. Being a new pet owner I had lots of questions, the vet was very patient with me and answered all my questions.

Thanks for making the process easy and looking forward to our future together.Joel L.Joel L. ★★★★★ I am a new dog owner to my dog, Bruiser. He is a large dog(80 lbs)and I was told when I got him that he gets anxious during vet visits. Both times i've had to take Bruiser in so far to Mountainside Veterinary Hospital, they've been very kind and patient towards both me & Mr. Bruiser. He had an ear infection a few weeks ago which was treated, but unfortunately it came back. They think it's due to a possible food allergy, so we're changing foods. So far both of my visits with Mountainside have been fast & easy. They also took into account the fact that he needs to be muzzled and provided one during his visit.(The muzzle I got him he dislikes greatly so I have to buy another) I had to hold Bruiser while they performed the ear treatments as well as trimmed his nails and the vet was very fast and quick. So far I highly recommend this Animal Hospital.Thank you guys for being so easy to work with.Ethan A.Ethan A. ★★★★★ These guys are great!!! our dog loves going here, and all of our past dogs too!!!Robert H.Robert H. ★★★★★ They give great gental care to my big older dog.

The Berner sisters are a handful and every single person who answers the phones is kind and compassionate and so very helpful. When one pup recently ingested a smorgasbord of household items (plastic toys, stuffing from toys, wares from counter-surfing expeditions, a power cord, etc.) we found ourselves at a pet emergency room. They thankfully stabilized her but we then had her transferred back to Mountain Side to see Dr. Klein. Dr. Klein was wonderful in explaining our options clearly and understanding our situation. Both girls ended up in surgery the same day ( one for a standard spay and the other got more complicated procedures.) they took such good care of both of our girls and walked us through recovery protocols at home. I felt I could reach them with any questions and get speedy answers. I’m so grateful that they got us all though this past week and can’t wait to repay them in a few weeks with healthy Berner puppy kisses!Christina W.Christina W. ★★★★★ If anyone needs a reliable veterinarian please go to Mountainside Veterinary.They are all amazing.I have been going there since 1984.And I will continue to go there because they are amazingSharon G.Sharon G. ★★★★★ Such friendly staff!
