To accommodate clients with busy schedules, Northwood Animal Hospital has outpatient care options.
Instead of staying for a scheduled appointment, you can arrange to leave your pet with us for the day for a doctor to examine. We can address medical concerns as well as perform routine wellness checks.
The pet’s vaccines must be up to date for the utilization of out-patient care. Valid contact information for you is necessary so you can be contacted to discuss exam findings and any recommended treatments. A doctor will do a thorough exam when time permits between scheduled appointments.
We are a 24-hour care facility, so for specific cases with authorization ahead of time, the pickup time maybe after 7 pm (but before 10 pm). However, please be aware that as an emergency hospital, the emergency staff may not be able to stop in the middle of a critical emergency to release your pet for late pickups.
Please call to schedule an out-patient exam so we can be sure we have your records ready when you arrive and to make sure there is ample time for a doctor to address the needs of your pet.
Most animals are ready to be picked up after 4 pm, with a receptionist available until 7 pm for late pickups. There is an additional fee of $4.25 for outpatient care.
