Emergencies happen. Murphy’s Law says they happen on weekends, holidays and overnight, but when they happen during business hours, we are here to help. Many emergencies can be facilitated through our Northland Drive hospital, but some cases require intensive or specialized care. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us immediately. Please call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. In some cases, going directly to one of our local emergency hospitals may be recommended.

We work closely with our local emergency referral hospitals so that our patients get the best care. We will follow up with their doctors who are caring for your pet throughout their stay. In this way, we can stay current on what care is being provided and provide any additional support.

Below, you will find contact information for BluePearl Veterinary Partners as well as the Animal Emergency Hospital. Both hospitals offer 24/7 emergency care on a walk-in basis and work closely with Northland Animal Hospital to formulate care plans. We hope you never find yourself in need of emergency help, but know that we are here for you should the situation arise.

BluePearl Veterinary Partners has the added benefit of having boarded specialty doctors on staff. A boarded specialist is a doctor who has completed additional training and passed a rigorous examination in a specific field such as internal medicine, surgery or critical care. In some cases, these doctors can provide services that we at Northland are unable to help with. If this is the case, we will recommend a consultation through their facility on Michigan Avenue. For certain emergencies, your veterinarian at Northland may recommend BluePearl so that a specialist can be involved right from the start. We maintain excellent relationships with the doctors at BluePearl so we can offer your pet the best care possible, even if it isn’t at our hospital. Our number one priority is your pet, not our bottom line. If your pet would be better served at another hospital, we will be sure to facilitate the appointment and send along any records that may be helpful!
