Our emergency care services are available during regular office hours when your pet needs urgent and intensive care. Whether it’s a minor or major medical problem, we can help. Alternatively, outside of regular hours, Dr. Northrup can typically be contacted through the office number for after hours emergencies. However, some cases may warrant referral to other agencies for more intensive care. (Click the ” + ” symbol, upper right of site, for a list of emergency contacts in the Northern Bay Area.)
No appointment is necessary, but please call ahead. Our emergency exam fee is very reasonably priced; we also accept all major charge cards, approved checks, ATM transactions, and CareCredit (a veterinary financing service). Like other emergency practices, payment is required at the time of services.
“I took my cat to Dr. Northrup for a general check up. The front desk staff was very friendly and efficient, and Dr. Northrup was very sweet to my cat, Princess. She had some matted parts to her coat, which he was able to remove quickly and expertly. Will definitely be back for regular check ups and vaccinations.”
“I have had 2 dogs and a cat over the years and Dr. Northrup has always come through for us. He’s very thorough and patient with both the animals and myself. I am most appreciative with Dr. Northrup for not shoving procedures down my throat that the animals do not necessarily need. He is great at giving you the decision as to which direction/treatment you want to follow for most non-emergency/non-life threatening situations. I completely trust him with my animals.”
