COVID-19 Update 02/04/2021

As of 02/04/202, Northern Paws will return to our modified curbside services. This means that we will allow one adult per animal into the building for doctor appointments only. We ask that if you choose to enter the building for your pet's doctor appointment that you wear an appropriate mask during your entire visit. We will also provide hand sanitizer in our foyer to use as you enter the building. We also ask that you be prepared to hold your pet while the doctor performs his/her examination, knowing during this time we will not be able to maintain the 6 foot social distancing recommendation. We still ask that you call upon arrival, as we will only be bringing you in when the room and doctor are ready. If you prefer to remain in your car for your pet's appointment, please let us know when you call to check in.

We will remain curbside for medication, food, and supply pick up. Please continue to call these things in, in advance. There will be a table in our vestibule for you to retrieve your items. We will also remain curbside for our technician appointments, when your pet is not seeing a doctor. Please continue to call us from the parking lot upon arrival and we will check you in over the phone. The front desk staff will let you know if the technicians will retrieve your pet from you, or have you meet us in the vestibule. As the phone remains our first line of communication, please be patient if the line is busy and try again until you reach us. Again thank you for your continued patience!

03/20/2020--COVID-19

Northern Paws Animal Hospital and our fellow pet hospitals play a vital role in the emotional well being of our community through ensuring their pets have the health care they need.

In response to COVID-19, Northern Paws Animal Hospital is making every effort to ensure the health and safety of our clients as well as our staff and their families. To do our part in slowing the spread of the virus yet continue to care for our patients, we are implementing the following protocols:

Please avoid coming to the clinic if you are not feeling well, or are experiencing flu like symptoms. If you need to cancel your appointment, please call us. If you are ill and your pet needs urgent care, call us for instructions.

During appointments we will be performing examinations in our treatment room by the doctor and a staff member. This will allow the staff member to assist the doctor and still maintain social distancing recommendations that have been put in place. The doctor will then go over any examination findings, recommendations, and answer any questions that you have about your pet.

We will be offering payment for prescriptions and foods over the phone to limit the amount of time spent waiting at the front desk. We can also bring these items to your vehicle upon your arrival by calling and letting us know to do so.

We are allowing one adult to be present during patient visits. If you would rather not come into our facility we can come to your vehicle and escort your pet into the hospital for examination. If you would rather stay in your vehicle until your appointment please call us upon your arrival and we will call you when the doctor is ready to see your pet.

We are currently providing non-urgent routine care as well as urgent and emergency care. This may change with identification of COVID-19 in our area.

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and cooperation as we face the challenges of the COVID-19 virus.

Testimonial

  • "Dr. Goodroad is the most amazing veterinarian! My family has had 5 dogs and 3 cats under his care throughout the years. He and his staff have saved the lives of 3 them, including one who had blastomycosis, and lived to bark about it!"
