North Peninsula Veterinary
It was established in 1973 by thirty-three peninsula veterinarians who decided that 24-hour patient care should be available for their patients.
Our primary goal is to provide intensive care facilities for patients that are seriously ill or injured, need surgical repair, or patients that may need to consult with a veterinary specialist. We also provide prompt relief from other mishaps or ailments that may not be life threatening, but are painful or are cause for immediate concern.
We maintain close personal relationships with local veterinarians and routinely work with them to provide the most comprehensive care available. 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! Beyond providing first rate pet care, our newly-remodeled clinic provides a calm and comfortable environment for you and your pet.
We are a full service Emergency and Critical Care hospital. Our experienced veterinary team can assist you and your family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Dr. Giger is the very best and his nurse incredible. It's terrible when your pet is sick. It's a relief to know and trust your vet. ! I am so lucky my dog was in pain and they fixed him. I can't thank them enough!!

When our Abby girl got attacked by a pit bull and had surgery at VCA and they couldn't medically board her there, we scrambled to find a hospital that could. We got referred to this location and I am so happy we did. Everyone that was on staff during her 4 days there were amazing with her.
