History of the clinic

Dr. DeVries

Northside Animal History

Dr. Jack DeVries opened Northside Animal Hospital in 1935.  At that time, it was located on Main Street in downtown Owosso.  He moved the clinic to its current location on M-52 in 1948.  The physical building has undergone updates and additions, but has been the home of Northside Animal Hospital since 1948.

The DeVries designated 136 acres of land adjacent to the clinic to create the Devries Nature Conservancy.  The DeVries’ Historical Carriage and Sleigh Museum is on the site of DeVries Nature Conservancy and houses a large collection of carriages, buggies, sleighs and surreys.  The Conservancy is home to 3.8 miles of walking trails, as well as farmland, forest and floodplain along the Shiawassee River.

Dr. Craig Hook began working with Dr. DeVries in 1979.  Dr. Hook purchased the practice from Dr. DeVries in 1980.  Dr. Hook continued the quality medical care begun by Dr. DeVries at Northside Animal Hospital.  He made improvements to the existing hospital and expanded the working space to allow for better veterinary care of pets.  He also developed a particular expertise in surgical referral from other veterinarians. 

Dr. Skarich purchased Northside Animal Hospital in early 2008 from Dr. Hook.  Dr. Hook and Dr. Skarich worked together to make this transition as smooth as possible and to maintain the high level of care your pets deserve.  Dr. Skarich values the heritage of Northside Animal Hospital and actively supports the DeVries Nature Conservancy in a variety of ways.

Dr. Skarich is proud to be the official veterinarian for DeVries Nature Conservancy.  He provides consultation, as well as medical and surgical care for the wide variety of animals that call DeVries their home.
