North Peninsula Veterinary Emergency Clinic was established in 1973 by thirty-three peninsula veterinarians who decided that 24 hour patient care should be available for their patients. After 40 years in business, we are still owned by veterinarians throughout the peninsula. We consider ourselves a family and hope that if the time ever comes when you need our services, you too will join our extended family!

Many veterinarians on the peninsula refer emergency calls to our clinic in the evenings, on the weekends, over the holidays, and even during the week when they may not have any appointments available. If your doctor is unavailable, our clinic is simply the best way to guarantee that your pet will be cared for by an experienced and knowledgeable medical staff. We maintain close personal relationships with local veterinarians and routinely work with them to provide the most comprehensive care available.

We work in collaboration with your regular veterinarian to provide comprehensive care.

Our comprehensive care team can provide board certified surgeons and board certified veterinary specialists when necessary. Unlike some larger veterinary surgical and specialty practices, all of our surgeons and specialists are board certified veterinarians, not interns.

We are a full service Emergency and Critical Care hospital.
