We’ve been taking all of our miniature schnauzers to Becker Animal Hospital for probably 50+ years, when Dr. Becker used to take care of our dogs, and have always been happy with their professionalism, care and concern. We now see Dr. Dombeck and just love her! I highly recommend Becker Animal Hospital for your pet.

There is no better place to take your pet than here. They not only treat your pet like their own but they treat you with respect as well. When putting down my 12 year old dog ,Dr Kathy did everything in her power to support my dog and my family through this awful period. She and her staff are so genuine and caring . We got a puppy a few months ago and everyone so so happy for us and welcomed our puppy with open arms . Thank you for all that you do !!!!

I've been using Becker for over a year now with our dog who we got as a puppy. I think they are very knowledgable, friendly, reliable and reasonable. the front desk staff is very efficient and friendly.

This is a place that truly cares about your pet. The entire team of staff are friendly, kind, and welcoming. The vets are absolutely amazing – outstanding listeners, calming, knowledgeable, compassionate, and genuinely all about your pet; they will never suggest a procedure just to make an extra buck. It’s just such a comfortable place that even my anxious cat is comfortable when there. And the vets, not technicians, gave my cat his meds and taught me how to med my cat. Over the 3yrs I’ve had my 12yo cat, I went to several other places, and after each one, my cat became increasingly more ill. I thought he was dying when I brought him to Becker. Dr. Liebman was wonderful, and Dr. Kathy brought my cat back to me better than I’ve ever known him to be. I am so so grateful to the vets at Becker.

Pretty bad sliced cut on my dog's foot. Had to be stapled. Dr. Liebman took care of him with his wonderful calm, friendly manner. Procedure was over in 10 minutes at most. Dog happy and now home. Family happy too!!!!

Hands down the best vet my two cats has ever been to. Staff there are wonderful, the place is clean and practical and Dr Heise is absolutely amazing. The care and love Dr Heise show for my cats are everything I could ask for. I always know my cats are in good hands with Dr Heise. Thank you Dr. Heise and to the whole staff at Becker, I feel lucky to have found this place to call my own and bring my cats there without concerns.

One evening in March 2020, one of our three cats suddenly isolated himself under the bed and stopped eating and drinking. We called one animal emergency room, who couldn’t see him for a number of hours, so we contacted Becker, who did a short triage via phone and told us to bring him in. This was close to start of COVID and the parking lot was full of families awaiting their pets’ treatments. The tech came out to meet us immediately and after confirming some health details, she took our cat in right away. She kept us up to date throughout the evening and early morning. Later we learned that our cat had experienced an acute kidney injury. They advised fluids, but cautioned us for potential poor recovery prospects and bad news. His lab numbers were some of the poorest numbers the Team had seen. After a weekend of fluids, we took him home with instructions on how to provide fluids at home. It was very difficult because only I could go inside the hospital to learn how to give fluids while my wife waited in the car. The technician who taught us stayed past the end of his shift to give me hands on training, which I really appreciated. Dr. Arrington kept us up to date while our cat was in hospital and was available for follow up. He even took photos and texted them to us, which meant so much to us. What struck me profoundly were the kindness, empathy, and training shown by Dr. Arrington and Team. They helped us navigate our cat’s follow up care. At first giving fluids was a bit nerve-wracking, but we slowly became more comfortable. After follow-up labs a week later, we were overjoyed to learn that our cat was making a remarkable recovery. Dr. Arrington indicated how amazing this was, but stressed that we had to keep a close eye on our cat due to the seriousness of his condition. Today, our little guy continues his recovery. From the first moment I contacted Becker, through every contact and discussion, Dr. Arrington and his Team provided empathy, support, and honesty about our cat’s treatment and prognosis. This was especially meaningful as we were both heartbroken initially and overjoyed later at the good news. We highly recommend the Team at Becker. Thank you to all.

It’s so hard to find the right vet. You want to do what’s best and find the best vet to help you do it. You need someone you trust and is knowledgeable. If you are like me you are also skeptical about having to shell out many 100s of dollars every time your little friend goes in. They seem fine, but then you are always looking at a huge bill. Becker Animal Hospital is the best vet I have been to. They are exceptional at explaining what’s going on and understanding of costs. They don’t force procedures or instill guilt. They weigh options and stand by your decisions. They are very knowledgeable and confident. They can explain the science and the details so you know they are competent. I personally have never been educated so thoroughly by a vet and I love it. Finally, they haven’t once tried to upsell me their products. In fact for one of my pets conditions Dr Heise recommended a different brand. If there is a down side it’s that they are busy. I still get in close to when I need to though. If you are more concerned about being in a posh spot and want the fancy decorations then go elsewhere. This place invests in equipment and talent, not decor. Best of luck with your pet.

I have been going to Becker Animal Hospital for many years. The reception people, technicians and Doctors are just the best. Had a very recent kitty emergency. Silly cat swallowed a needle and thread. I was beside myself and probably more frightened than my kitty. Everyone was so understanding and one of the women there even drove me (I had taken a cab to the office) to a nearby emergency place after it was decided that endoscopic surgery was necessary. Everyone was awesome and definitely helped me calm down. Big Kudos to all!! (Kitty and needle were successfully separated :) )

Dr. Liebman is stellar and incredibly intelligent. We left our vet in the city during dog flu season several years ago due to avoiding contact with it, and made the trip to Northfield to take our dog, who is now a senior. My parents take their pets here as well, and like us, view our pets as children. We have also seen Dr. Heise who is incredibly kind - we feel confident going to both vets, and appreciate their patience answering our questions, and most recently, grappling through the senior years with our dog and how to handle kidney disease. The bedside manner of both vets is professional, yet gentle, kind, and caring, never rushing you when asking a million questions about your pet. Thank you Becker Animal Hospital! We will always make the commute from the city because of your incredible staff and vets. Love, Xenu and his parents

Dr. Libman has a great approach. Finds time to listen and answer questions. I understand that he is busy as anyone else but he find time to communicate with a pet owner and suggest treatment options. You may say all doctors have perform at the same level but not. They are not.
