Our stem cell therapy program utilizes your pet’s own stem cells to target inflamed or damaged tissue in their body. The stem cells are harvested and processed in our hospital. Stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP) are used to encourage healing by reducing inflammation and relieving pain. They also promote the regeneration of healthy tissue.


  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease (DJD)
  • Orthopedic injuries- damaged tendons and ligaments

High Definition Imaging (CT)

Here at Animal Clinic Northview,  we have state of the art imaging to help your pets when they are sick or injured. Vimago GT30™ is capable of producing 3D images of your pet’s anatomy through HDVI High Definition Volumetric Imaging (CT), Full-Featured Fluoroscopy & Digital Radiography.  There are so many reasons that this is helpful for your pet.

Thermal Wellness Screenings

Introducing Thermal Wellness Screenings for Pets: Uncover what you can’t see with our fast, non-invasive thermal imaging service. Often, pets conceal their discomfort, making early detection of diseases challenging. Our thermal screenings offer a unique glimpse into your pet’s health, revealing hidden conditions through variations in radiated energy from the skin. This innovative technique allows for the early detection of issues like dysplasia, arthritis, and unseen back pain, leading to improved treatment outcomes and keeping your pet feeling great. With a quick, quiet imaging process that requires no fur clipping, it’s ideal for pets of all temperaments.

Schedule your pet’s thermal wellness screening today and ensure they receive the early care they need for a happier, healthier life.

Having a repro specialist like Animal Clinic is invaluable and gives a breeder resources — I’ve had many finished Champions and continue to develop my 10 generation line with over 200 AKC titles. Having instant access to any dog I store has allowed me to breed to progeny in a way that suits my breeding style.


Since 2003 ACN has maintained my vote for the best pet care in the tristate area. From routine wellness to highly specialized medicine, they’re a super responsive team for everything. I take great comfort in knowing they’re open 24 hours a day in case of emergency and genuinely care about the wellbeing of my four-legged family.


We never feel like a “number” — the place is always clean & the staff is so friendly. We love our birds so much & feel so good & comfortable with Dr. Lindstrom. He is a fantastic doctor & always so friendly & caring & compassionate!
