Welcome to Northside Animal Hospital in North Sydney, Nova Scotia

Northside Animal Hospital has been serving our tight-knit animal community since 2008. Our veterinary clinic is located in Sydney, Nova Scotia in the eastern region of Cape Breton Island. Our three-doctor team consists of Dr. Parsons, Dr. White and Dr. Gamble. Through their combined knowledge, they have contributed over 30 years of experience to Cape Breton’s animal loving community. While we do have closing times, we operate a 24-hour service for emergency care. People are welcome to call us after hours to get access to our veterinarians and urgent medical care.

Your pets are our family. We love meeting every single animal that’s brought into our facility and enjoy watching them grow from rambunctious youngsters into wise senior pets. At Northside Animal Hospital, we realize your pets are an important part of your family and we are devoted to their health and wellbeing. Our clinic provides a balanced, low stress approach to caring for your pets and are happy to provide you with resources such as Puppy Pre-School and Behavioural Counselling. We welcome you to book an appointment or call us at 902.794.7387 with any questions or emergencies you may have. Thank you for considering Northside Animal Hospital.
