Cheers to Dr. Kim Krivit and the entire staff of North Star Veterinary Hospital for the wonderful care provided for our animals, and for the tremendous compassion to us during the recent loss of our dog. Thank you North Star.

Cheers to Dr. Kim Krivit and Dr. Colleen Ritter at North Star Veterinary Hospital in Parkton foe quickly diagnosing the problem when puff, my 8-year old beagle, was suddenly unable to walk. They advised me to take puff to the N.C. State Veterinary Complex as soon as possible, and I did. Less than 24 hours later, Puff had surgery for a herniated disc and is now recovering at home.

Dear Dr. Ritter and Staff,
Thank you for everything you have done and are doing for the little dog Susie. I am so happy that she has a chance for a good life somewhere down the road. I know now that I took her to just the right place to get the help she needed.
Cheers to Dr. Krivit at North Star Veterinary Hospital. Recently we had to take our beagle, Buck, there for what we thought was emergency care. Dr. Krivit stayed late to see us. What we thought was a torn dew claw was a torn nail. She was compassionate and focused on our emotions as much as on relieving Buck's pain. She and her staff are always courteous and professional. Pet and owner are always given top-quality treatment. We love her. Thank you, Dr. Krivit, for treating all of us like family.

Cheers to Dr. Kim Krivit and all of her staff at North Star Veterinary Hospital. My poor Lab mix was attacked by other dogs and was injured very badly. I took him there after hours, and Dr. Krivit and her staff were there waiting on him. Unfortunately, his injuries were more severe than thought, and it was kinder to let him go. Everyone at the office was very caring toward us and Toby during this difficult time.
I have not met a nicer group of caregivers who care about our pets as they do.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

Cheers and thank you to North Star Veterinary Hospital for taking care of my golden, Chance, in my time of grief following the loss of my mother. Chance has cancer and was not feeling well. They offered to come get Chance and take care of him while I grieved for my mother. Because I wanted him with me during this time, they brought his medicine to my home after hours.
Thank you, Margaret, Cindy, Amy, Deidra, Dr. Julie, Dr. Sanders, Dr. Kim and the whole staff that cares for both of my boys. It's truly an awesome place to care for your animals.

Cheers to North Star Veterinary Hospital of Parkton. Our horse, Red, needed surgery due to an injury, and we didn't have a trailer. No problem! She was picked up, had a successful surgery, and was brought home feeling much better. Thank you, Dr. Kim and Robert.

Cheers to Dr. Kim Krivit of North Star Veterinary Hospital of Parkton. The time had come to "let go" of our 18-year-old beloved dog, Pickle. She came to our house, and while being the perfect professional, she was also extremely compassionate and sincere. Our family will never forget how she helped us get through a very difficult time. Thank you for providing such great care!

Cheers to the North Star Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Krivit, Dr. Irwin and all of their staff were very professional, understanding and comforting in the care of my 11-year-old dog that had been bitten by a poisonous snake. After 27 years with another veterinary hospital, I am changing over to this one.

Cheers and thank you to my veterinarian, Dr. Kim Krivit of North Star Veterinary Hospital in Parkton. On Sunday after 10 p.m., I called her emergency line about my golden retriever and told her his symptoms. They had lingered through the day. She had me bring him right away, diagnosed him and prescribed his medications, and he is feeling better. Thank you for your 24-hour compassion and excellent care. Chance thanks you, too!

Cheers and thank you to North Star Veterinary Clinic in Parkton. Dr. Kim Krivit and staff are very caring and didn't give up on our puppy with parvo. The team at North Star Veterinary Clinic are wonderful and caring. They explained everything to us about our puppy, and we are so excited our puppy is back home with us. Thanks again, North Star. Chewy is so happy to be back home with her family.

Cheers to Dr. Kim Krivit and her assistant, Carolyn, from Northstar Veterinary Hospital. When our rescued horse, a Belgian Draft, went down in his stall and wouldn't get up and I couldn't get him up, I called the clinic and informed them of the situation. The day was very hot, and I knew Wolfie was getting dehydrated and his temp was probably going up. I didn't now how long he had been down. Dr. Krivit arrived very shortly and was able to get Wolfie up and my panic down. She is very calm and caring to her patients and understanding to the owners. They worked on him for about 1 1/2hours to get him stabilized, cooled down and feeling much better.

After my visit at North Star I have to say I am so thankful that I found them. Dr. Irwin was awesome, she answered all of my questions and really set my mind at ease when it comes to concerns I have with my dog. I will be taking him back there, they are all amazing.
When I arrived home after work, my dog Sweetsie was very sick. North Star let me bring her right in. They were upfront about treatment and potential costs, but more importantly, they genuinely cared about my girl and even noticed and cared about my stress. Sweetsie spent two days there and was not stressed from the stay like she has been at other vets. She is fine now and on a special low fat diet. The vet never tried to force me to buy there brand (I didn't, Sweetsie is a picky eater). My vet 4 life for all of my 4 legged family members! I recommend North Star Hospital to everyone, including 3 of my friends and co-workers that have already switched. THANK YOU!
The perfect equine vet. Kim Krivit is a wonderful vet. My horse recently colicked at around 1:30 AM and Kim was right out to help him through it. She is very up front and honest about the situation, and she sincerely cares about the animals she works with. Dr. Krivit also answered all my questions and concerns. With her help, my horse pulled through and is continuing to improve every day. If you want the best for your horse, Kim Krivit is it.
Excellent care! I took my dog in for a toenail injury and someone met us there early and they took excellent care of her and noticed another potential problem and asked me to keep an eye on it so it didn't become worse. Highly recommended.
