From Ann Bost, Pine Bluff AR
Brian gave my dog Elvis surgery for some leg problems that he always had. He helped him so much. Improved his quality of life. It. was great help. I have so many dogs now I wish this vet was closer to us because he does such a great job taking care of the dogs.

Thanks Brian,

Dr Norton gave me free advice on my over weight dachshund (24 lbs). He asked me to cut back the amount of food I was feeding her and get her out for daily walks. No meds etc... Zoey is now just over 14 lbs and is a HAPPY Weiner Dog. Ty Doc your the best!!!!

Yeah for Dr Norton and Dr Cherry. Two of the best vets around. Took my yorkie in for a routine yearly check and they found a lump. Surgery the next day. It was cancer but they found it early enough. She is thriving. Thank you Bardens for being thorough and offering aggressive treatment. Love you and your staff.

This is the best vet clinic around. Dr Norton and Dr Cherry are a great team. Dr Cherry treated my cat for a bad cut that required stitches. She was so gentle and calming to Sissy. Dr Norton has seen my very frightened dog. The doc just took his time to calm Rambo. He was so good with him. I would recommend this clinic. So nice and friendly.

Best vet service around. Takes care if my two labs and tabby cat. Friendly. Knows what they are doing. Not ashamed to let you see the back areas. Clean. My first choice. My only choice!

I love Bardens Animal Clinic in Lowell and their staff is so nice and helpful. I wouldn't take my fur babies anywhere else but to Dr. Norton. He did a laser surgery on our small dog and she doesn't even have a scar from it! The local competition for Bardens doesn't even hold a candle to the quality of care, concern or treatment that your fur babies will receive here. Dr. Norton is the greatest veterinarian that ever lived!! I love him and he truly cares about animals and you can tell. Bardens is the best of the best!!

took in my very healthy, well trained pedigree show cat in for a neuter & front declaw-NOW MY CAT IS BLIND!
never was I informed of the risks,besides infection & swelling, and never informed about the meds they use (Ketamine, which has been recalled several times but continued to use since it's cheap) and the possible side effects.
had they properly informed me about their procedure & the risks involved, I WOULD OF NEVER GONE THROUGH WITH IT! But why would they tell me? So they could miss out on several hundred dollars!?!?
now my $3500 cat (not including training) that used to fetch, chase my kid & respond to several commands, does nothing but miss it's litter box & stares blank at everything.
it's makes me sick when I have to explain to my 5 yr old why our beloved cat can't go out for walks w/ the dog & why he can't play fetch & chase her around-knowing that this could of been avoided if they had only informed us properly of what can happen. Any reputable vet knows this!

took my well trained pedigree show cat there for a neuter & front declaw. Went in & came out blind! Never was told about the risks from the meds (ketamine, which has been recalled several times but continued to use since it's cheap) and never told about possible blindness. Only informed about swelling & infection. That's it. Never did anyone say "im sorry" just a "call us & let us know" deal. Staff is very friendly, but does not make up for my cat losing it's eyesight. Had I known that this could happen or was properly informed of the risk, I would of never had this done to our beloved cat.
a cat that once chased my 5 yr old kid & knew several commands such as fetch & catch, is now blind & does nothing but miss it's litter box! Explaining to my heartbroken kid why her cat won't chase/play w/her just turns my stomach knowing that this could of been avoided :,(

It was a relief when Dr. Norton took over Bardens Animal Clinic. The office has slowly been remodeled and is clean, unlike the travesty it was under the previous owner. The chairs are new, it is bright, staff is attentive and it does not smell. My dog had a slipped disc from over activity which resulted in the atrophy of her haunches. I thought this was a terminal event. As a result of his knowledge regarding how to care for her she recovered fully. Dr. Norton is a communicative, caring vet. I would highly recommend him for your pet's care.

I was not at all pleased with Bardens when I first started taking my animals there. I was actually searching for a new vet when Dr. Norton took over. It's been a slow process, but the offices are being remodeled, the smell is gone and the staff is truly fabulous. I had to put my cat down and it was a horrific decision to make. Dr. Norton walked me through all of my options and made the decision clearer and easier. He then called the day after to check to see if my other pets and I were ok. It's the kind of thing that is completely unexpected but makes the difference between a good vet and one that truly understands.

I've been taking my Bichon to Dr. Norton since she was a pup, I had her spayed there. Since Brian Norton took over Bardens they have been working non stop on remodeling and cleaning the place what a difference from the previous owners. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and if I call with questions they always help me out. The other day I thought my dog was choking or sick ( she was hacking so bad It put her on the floor off and on ) so I called them and they gave me an appointment within an hour she started doing it again so I rushed her to the vets, while I was in the waiting room she did it again and one of the techs heard it and said she was reverse sneezing and that alot of small dogs do the same thing and its normally not serious. That made me feel better but I wanted to see the Vet anyway. Brian heard her do it and confirmed it was reverse sneezing printed a fact sheet on it and offered not to charge for the visit if I didn't want a full checkup, which I thought was nice. I opted to pay for a full checkup and she was fine but I felt better being sure. Dr. Norton always explains everything in detail and makes sure you understand everything , he's very gentle with my dog as are his techs and you can tell they like animals. I'm surprised I haven't driven them crazy with phone calls on everything from she ate something to I think she got stung by a bee. I think his fees are fair and I like the way they treat my dog. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Norton is someone that I would not recommend to anyone who genuinely cares about their pets. His diagnosis and recommendation would have cost my pregnant dog her life if I had listened to him! He diagnosed her with cancer and terminal to the point that she only had a day or two left.

Upon receiving a second opinion from a knowledgeable vet, I found that her problem was no big deal at all.

As far as quality of equipment:
Anyone who knows how to even remotely read an x-ray (or can see period) will notice right off the bat that Bardens x-rays are VERY low quality.

Being that I love animals there is no way in the world that I could EVER recommend "Dr" Norton or Bardens to anyone!

I read an article in the Hammond Times yesterday regarding Bardens Animal Clinic and I totally agree. I use to bring my pets to Bardens until the Clinic, Dr. and Staff ALL went down hill, the smell alone when you walked in the front door along with the filth was bad enough. I heard we had a new Dr./Owner in town and was recommended to try it again. I am certainly glad I did, what a difference it is so clean, the staff so friendly/knowledgeable and Dr. Norton is so wonderful and a true pet lover. If you have not been to Bardens in the last year, I recommend you try again and will not be disappointed!

Dr. Norton has taken wonderful care of my cats. He is so knowledgeable and shows he is truly an animal lover. His demeanor is friendly, yet professional. The clinic is clean and well-maintained. The staff members are friendly and helpful. I wouldn't think of taking my pets to any one but Dr. Norton and Barden's Animal Clinic.

Dr. Norton and his staff are wonderful. They are so professional and caring. My Angel was so sick I thought she would have to be put down but they saved my best friend. I love the changes to the clinic and all the new improvements. Would encourage anyone to take their animals here. Best animal doctor I have ever been to see! ! Raton M.

If you are looking for Dr. McPherron, he has moved to Crown Point, to the Pointe. The new vet, the red headed guy, nice man, but after he told us there was nothing he could do for our dog, told us to bring her in for the weekend for $450.00. He has raised the rates on office visits, spays and neutering too in comparison to McPherron's clinic in Crown Point near Aurelios and Becks Crown Bakery.

The place is clean and well organized. The parking is on the side and in the back. A nice touch is the grassy area for the dogs before entering the building on the opposite side. The staff is pet friendly, cheerful & and helpful. The waiting room is not too big, but it works. The vets are caring and thorough. They don't have evening hours, but they are open on Saturday morning. And if you board you dog for more than 5 days - they get a bath! That's customer service!
Prices are reasonable.
