Because we work with pets on a daily basis, we understand they’re more than animal companions – they’re valued family members. As vets we do much more than treat sick pets. We take a three-pronged approach to pet care that addresses nutrition and exercise, proactive illness prevention, and treatment of injury and disease.

We strive to educate owners about the specific requirements of their pet. If you’re pet is sick or injured, we are sensitive to the stress this can put you under, and will discuss your situation and options with you so you can make an informed decision that is right for you.

This section of our website covers helpful info about common household pets, different pet services we provide, our pet hospital, frequently asked questions and interesting cases we have seen.

Been using these guys for many pet lives. Great vets, caring and knowledgeable.

Rob and his team are amazing. They are extremely caring and provide excellent service. They have looked after my horses, cats and dogs for many years. All treated with respect and compassion. I highly recommend the N.P. Vet Group.

Exceptional service, very professional and friendly people. I would recommend them to everyone I know.

The vet group is amazing. The commitment and dedication they provide and deliver is above and beyond. They really do show great animal husbandry and pride in their work. I am grateful to have my dogs and any other future pet I may have been taken care of by these loving people.

Professional service each time I go here. Compassionate on a couple of occasions also. Very good customer service for us over the years.
