Dr. Deborah Tierney and Dr. Irvin Herling opened Doc Side Veterinary Medical Center in 1999 with a promise to provide the absolute best medical care available to the pets of Fells Point and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Recognized as downtown Baltimore's premier animal hospital, Doc Side offers the most advanced veterinary medical procedures available today. We were one of the first hospitals in Maryland to offer a new, minimally invasive surgical technique to spay our canine and feline friends. This new procedure is less painful, takes less time and, in most cases, allows your pet to go home the same day and resume normal activity immediately.
Together, with a highly trained and professional staff, we offer compassionate and loving care in a modern state-of-the-art facility. Our services range from annual wellness exams, and dental care to a full spectrum of laboratory testing, imaging and surgical procedures, as well as in-house and online pharmacy options.
Thousands of clients have put their trust in Doc Side to ensure the health and well-being of their pets. We thank them for their confidence and loyalty and we welcome the opportunity to have you join our family.
