North Shore Family Pet Hospital is environmentally-friendly.

We embrace the "green" practices listed below to reduce our environmental impact. NSFPH encourages staff members and clients to suggest new and creative ways to initiate eco-conscience practices within the hospital.

  • Utitlize a Paperless Medical Records System, including but not limited to: emailed patient reminders, emailed client receipts, and electronic messages for clients and staff
  • Shred and recycle all paper
  • Recycle all paper, plastic, glass, and cardboard boxes
  • Use cloths to clean instead of paper towels when practical
  • Use excess water from the coffee machine to water plants
  • Print on the back of old faxes/used paper for in-house use
  • Cut old faxes/used paper into scratch paper
  • Use washable flatware instead of disposable
  • Use low-flow toilets
  • Use CFL bulbs
  • Turn lights out in exam rooms & restrooms when not in use
  • Glass for front windows is double-paned for energy savings
  • Reuse hospital supplies in other manners (e.g. used IV bags used to soak paws, or as booties; cardboard trays from canned food serve as disposable cat pans)
  • Washable dishes for pets instead of paper bowls
  • Appliances are Energy Star
  • Thermostats adjusted heat vs. air conditioning, day vs. night
  • Fecal bags are biodegradable
  • Trash is consolidated to one central bag for disposal
  • Toner cartridges are recycled and refurbished toner cartridges are purchased when available
