Be Tick Smart!
We are proud to share that our Hospital Manager, Krista, is now trained to be a Tick Smart Educator by University of Rhode Island's TickSmart Community Health Resource Center!
TickSmart Educators learn about and practice using best-in-class tick bite protection tools and strategies. She now has the resources to help you and your pet keep safe year-round! Ticks do not go away here in Rhode Island - remember to use flea and tick prevention 12 months of the year.
Riverside Animal Hospital and Krista also are TickEncounter Preventative Partners (TEPP). TEPPs help engage, educate, and empower people to take appropriate actions to prevent tick bites and the often-serious diseases that ticks can transmit. They are committed to improving the health of the communities and the people they serve.

We’re excited to share that Dr. Portnoy has been appointed the veterinarian at the Roger Williams Botanical Center to take care of the goats that have arrived!
She will be helping the staff to keep the new arrivals in good health and available to answer any questions concerning care and preventive medicine.

Riverside Animal Hospital Welcomes Barrington Veterinary Clinic Patients & Clients
Dr. Anna Portnoy and the team at Riverside Animal Hospital are delighted to welcome the patients and clients of Barrington Veterinary Clinic.
After 23 years in business, Dr. Evans must close Barrington Veterinary Clinic due to ongoing health issues. "This has been an extremely painful decision," she says. "Caring for these pets over the years has been the greatest pleasure and privilege. We have always had a strong relationship with Riverside Animal Hospital, and I know that they will provide the same quality of care and personal attention that pet owners have come to expect from us at Barrington."
