We adopted our dog, Scrappy, in July 2007 from the Kansas Humane Society.  Just a few days after we brought her home, she started showing signs of illness.  We took her immediately to Northrock Animal Hospital where she was seen by Dr. Emily Kelly.  Dr. Kelly gave Scrappy some antibiotics and Scrappy stayed at the hospital overnight.  The illness returned a few weeks later, even worse than the time before, and she was again hospitalized for several days.  It was touch and go for awhile, and frankly we weren't sure Scraps was going to make it.  As any pet owner knows, Scrappy meant everything to us even though we had only had her in our lives for two weeks.   The one thing that knew I could be confident about, however, was the care Scrappy was receiving.  Throughout both of Scrappy's stays at Northrock, Dr. Kelly called us regularly to update us about her condition.  We were welcome to come and visit Scrappy at anytime during office hours.  When our pet insurance claim was denied, Dr. Kelly even took the time to write a letter to the insurance company to help us get our money.  It's four years later, and though we've moved to another part of town, we would never consider going to another animal clinic.  I always tell my husband that if Northrock would offer human medical care, I would be the first patient in line!

We have been customers of the Northrock Clinic since the beginning when it was located on Rock Road.  Through out the years the caring for our pets and competence and professionalism of the doctors and staff have been exceptional.  We moved out of Wichita 16 years ago and still drive to Northrock for our pet's care.  We wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

We recommend Dr. Weidler to all of our family and friends.  He is always patient with our questions as first-time dog owners and has great rapport with our Molly.  Dr. Weidler and the staff at Northrock are fantastic and we're lucky to have found a clinic that cares so much about our pet!

Thank you so much for taking care of Zabi this week while she stayed there with you.  We especially want to thank Dr. Kelly and Dr. Weidler for their swift treatment and for helping us understand what was going on with our sick puppy.  We really appreciate the care everyone has shown us and Zabi over the past few weeks and are truely thankful to all of you.

At 16 years of age, my lab, Coffee's health was on the decline.  Dr. Weidler did a full work-up for him, addressed his dental needs and has worked with us to find a care regimen that has vastly improved Coffee's quality of life.  Coffee is active again and most importantly, happy, thanks to Dr. Weidler's thorough and conscientious care.

My first visit to Northrock Animal Hospital was early in 2010 when my cat of over 14 years became ill---the staff was INCREDIBLE!!! Very patient with me as they took my pet's history and very kind with him---while my cat was too ill to come back home with me, the kindness and time that every member of the staff showed me gave me a sense that they truly cared for every pet and every "pet parent"!!! I soon had a new cat and there was no doubt in my mind that I would return to Northrock---they have taken great care of us--from kitty's first visit after I adopted her to her most recent check-up and vaccinations--- If you are looking for a vet for your new pet or wish to change to a vet where every member of the staff is committed to caring for ALL members of the pet family---this is the place to come!!!! THANK YOU to each member of the staff at Northrock Hospital for Animals in Wichita, Kansas!!!!

Although we live on the West side of town, just a little South of Maize, we consider it worth the trip and expense (in gas) to bring our dogs over to you clinic for care.

Dr. Weidler and his staff make it a pleasure to go there and to know that your loved one is getting the best care possible.
-Samuel  and Sheree Waddell with Pickle 
You are all exceptionally friendly and caring when we bring our animals in. Never act like any question is foolish. I especially appreciate the help carrying the carrier into the building and to the car. It is one of the joys of getting old that you can't do the things that were easy at one time. We appreciate all of you.

We love North Rock Animal Hospital!

Thank you so much for treating my baby so well! She was a bit unruely and yet very popular! :)Even after the torture she still loved everyone! I can tell how much the staff truly love animals. I will be recomendihg Northrock to anyone that needs a vet. I'm sure Lucy is looking forward to her next visit. Thank you again.
-Anna Morris ( & Lucy )
I think you all know after 14 years or so how I feel about the doctors and staff!! :-) I wouldn't think of going anywhere else as you all are the best. Love the new on line stuff!
-Patricia Sherwood
You became my favorite people because you've been exceptional in all of these areas. We feel very special when we visit.
-Linda Maness
We love everyone at your office! They have always gone out of their way to be wonderful to us and our babies! We would gladly go to any of the three doctors and know our cats were getting the best of care! Thanks!
-Gary and Roberta Burdick
We always receive great care & attention. Dr. Weidler is the ONLY reason why Abby has been with us the past year. She nearly died last Easter but Bryan refused to give up on treating her. We're very thankful to him and the staff at Northrock Animal Hospital.
-Ruth Cook and Abby
I have been a customer since '88 when Alan and Max were on Rock Road. The care I have received over the years has been excellent. Thank you.
-Byron West
Northrock is a great vet clinic. We've gotten nothing but great care by the staff and doctors here. Everyone goes out of their way to make us feel like we're the only patients you have.

We constantly recommend you! We feel like our doggers are well-loved in your care.

fatcat says thanks for the bed and breakfast and he will be back in April. :-)
-Phil and Linda Morris
Dr. Weidler did an excellent job with Montana and her spay surgery. She was all healed up within a week and showed no signs of pain or discomfort. We have yet to be disappointed with the services provided at Northrock Hospital for Animals. Everyone is so friendly every time we visit.
-Thanks from the Wiltshire family.
You caring and compassinate assistance when I had to put Venus down was outstanding . And that excellence of the whole experience has continued in your care for both Sara and Milton. I am very impressed with your entire operation as well as your entire staff.Thank you.
-Mary Jo Lee, Milton and Sara
I love taking my pets here. They are always relaxed and happy to go/ leave unlike other vets I have taken them too. I appreciate how aware of cost the doctors are and take that into account when prescribing treatment. Everyone is very friendly and professional. The fact that the doctor can remember my pets from year to year makes me very happy and impresses me a lot. Thank you for the wonderful service.
-Annie Oster
The receptionist was very busy and kept saying how sorry she was that I had to wait. I appreciate that she showed her concern. As I checked out and asked questions she answered then and did not rush me even though she was busy. Bryan Weidler was also very kind and took the time to answer my questions and did not rush my appointment.
-Ruth Zych
I felt very comfortable from the moment I arrived, and that staff was more than accomodating; they went beyond my expectations. The visit with the doctor was thorough and very informative, and I found him to be very friendly and pleasant. I was at ease and comfortable the whole time. I learned a lot and felt he had the best interest of my pet in his recommendation. I am very glad I made the choice to come to the clinic. I
-Cynthia Wynn
We love the staff at North Rock Animal Hospital! They are knowledgeable, wonderfully warm and kind to humans and animals alike! No matter how many questions we have they always make time to thoroughly answer all of them. Our wait time to see our vet is generally quite short and the only time I've ever had to wait a while has been because of an another animal emergency, I have NO problem waiting for that. I wish they had emergency care for late night emergencies, but that is just not in the cards and I have found other places that do provide that type of service. I just don't trust them like I trust the folks at North Rock (which I'm sure is quite unwarranted since I've never even met them!) They are the best and I hope they are around for many, many years!!
-Joyce Middleton
 Love love love love you guys. I tell everyone about you.
-Tom & Ursula Zigan

 I am completely satisfied with the attention and care we receive at NR; I wouldn't consider taking Maggie to any other place for medical care! Keep Up the Outstanding Services!
