About Nolana Animal Hospital

The NAH family is proud of our practice and we enjoy what we do.

Nolana Animal Hospital (NAH) was opened in 1975 by Steve Bentsen. At that time Nolana Loop defined the northern edge of town and NAH was the first building on Nolana east of Tenth Street. Since then, fourteen veterinarians have practiced at NAH. Currently we have three full time doctors and two visiting specialists on staff.

From the beginning, our approach to veterinary medicine has been quality rather than quantity. We have continuously upgraded the quality and variety of services that we offer. In addition to operating a full-service hospital for our regular clientele, we offer specialty services in surgery, internal medicine, radiology and dermatology. A significant portion of our business comes by way of referrals from other veterinarians across south Texas and northern Mexico.

Andy Baker began his association with NAH as a visiting surgeon, coming from Houston on a regular basis to do surgical procedures which were not available in the Valley at that time. In 1989 Dr. Baker became a full-time partner at NAH. Today the practice is owned and operated by Drs. Bentsen and Baker.
