The North Shore Veterinary Hospital’s Commencement Tale:

Dr. Fredericks founded the North Shore Veterinary Hospital.

North Shore Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1931 on Vernon Valley Road in Northport, NY, by Dr. Arthur Fredericks upon his graduation from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. In the ’30s, Dr. Fredericks spent his early years as a farm veterinarian, caring for all types of animals.

Over 75 years of experience in animal care.

In the early 1930s, people traveled on dirt roads via horse and buggy. Penicillin had not yet been invented and old wooden crates were used to house pets. Food scraps were collected from local restaurants to feed them, and boarding was only 25 cents a day.

Dr. Fredericks continued his veterinary career for the next 60 years, becoming a well-respected ‘character’ in the local community.


“Dr. Fredericks is an amazing vet! My two dobies love him and his staff. Always kind and thorough.”

– Carol M.

“The doctors. and staff are efficient and very compassionate. We always felt that they were sincerely concerned about our dog. When he passed they reached out to us offering their love and support. They feel like family.”

– Margaret D.

“Honest, knowledgeable, considerated, and professional; that is a perfect description of the veterinarians, vet assistants, and office staff. More than 3 years taking excellent care of our beloved best friend. Thank you so much guys for being close to us, always available, and ready to help when we needed you.”

– Javier T.
