Northwest Pet Clinic’s Locations

Our Progressive Tucson Vet Practice:

Our Tucson vet practice is a full-service small animal hospital. We have in-house radiology, diagnostic laboratory, surgical, and hospitalization facilities.

Northwest Pet Clinic is among only 15% of veterinary hospitals  in the United States and Canada, that volunteer for review by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), becoming an accredited member in 2007.

By demonstrating a commitment to providing the community with the highest quality healthcare for their pets, we strive to eliminate patient pain and suffering in order to promote long healthy lives.

Northwest Pet Clinic promotes and emphasizes the human-animal bond through compassion, education, and communication.

Our staff strives to maintain a clean, pleasant, and efficient environment for our clients and patients.  We work diligently to ensure that we meet our clients expectations during each visit.

Both Northwest Pet Clinics use only state-of-the-art equipment. On both premises, we have a full digital radiology department, including digital dental radiography. What this does is enables us to provide routine x-rays, as well as, conduct special studies. Our animals are always monitored at the highest level of standards; in many cases, giving your pet the same medical care as a human facility. We proudly use Cardell monitors, one of the most trusted, efficient, and accurate patient monitoring systems available for animals.

Never been to Northwest Pet Clinic? No problem. We have a joint database, so once you’ve been seen by one of our locations, the other will be able to access your records without any issues. You’ll receive same amazing service that our clients have come to expect at either of our locations. This is just one more way we are moving forward to blending the highest quality care with ease and convenience for our valued clientele.

Digital Radiology - Tucson VetDigial Radiology

On premises we have a full Digital Radiology Department and Digital Dental Radiography,  which can provide routine x-rays, as well as, special studies. We also have Cardiology services with capabilities to record EKGs on animals – enabling a more complete diagnosis of heart diseases and may help to make anesthetic and surgical procedures safer.

Diagnostic Laboratory - Tucson VetDiagnostic Laboratory

Our Diagnostic Laboratory provides a wide variety of laboratory tests. Results of routine tests such as screening for internal parasites, urinalysis, diabetes, leukemia, heart-worms, liver and kidney function, anemia and infections are available on the same day. More complex or specialized tests are performed by a reference laboratory and results are usually available in 24 hours.

Surgical Suite - Tucson VetSurgical Suite

Northwest Pet Clinic has a complete Surgical Suite capable of performing almost every procedure, from routine spays and neuters to cesareans and orthopedic surgeries. We have diagnostic, monitoring, and safety features to help ensure the safety of your pet. Specialized equipment is employed to monitor our patients’ physiologic condition during surgery. A surgical technician is always in attendance to monitor the patient’s status and assist the surgeon.

Compassionate care is an important part of proper medical care. Pets recovering from surgery are closely supervised and given pain medications to ease their discomfort during their stay in our hospital.

PharmacyPharmacy

We have a pharmacy on site. This means that most medications are available and are able to be dispensed right away. We eliminate the need to make an additional stop at your local pharmacy to get the medication your pet requires. We understand that little things like this make a big difference for our clients, especially when their furry family members are not feeling well.
