Emergency Care

While we hope you never need to see us for an emergency you can rest assured that North Bridge Equine Associates is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide emergency care. Be it a colic, laceration, swollen eye, sudden onset lameness, or any other equine emergency your horse may experience we are always available to provide emergency care. We understand an emergency can be a stressful time so we want to let you know how our system works:

  • During normal business hours: Call 978-337-1260 and press 3 for the Emergency line. Your call will ring to Kari or Julia who will discuss your horse’s situation and will contact one of our Doctors who will arrange to see your horse as soon as possible. 
  • After normal business hours: Call 978-337-1260 and Press 3 for the Emergency line. You will be transferred to our answering service who will page the doctor on call. The doctor will call you back within 15-20 minutes (often much sooner than that). If you do not review a call back within 15-20 min please call back and ask the operator to page the doctor again. 
  • If you are not sure if your horse needs to be seen urgently, please feel free call to the emergency line and have the doctor on call paged. We are happy to discuss your horse’s situation and help determine if a visit is needed. 
  • Please note that emergency service is offered only to current, active clients of North Bridge Equine Associates. An additional emergency fee will apply to all after hours and weekend emergency calls. 

North Bridge Equine Associates is happy to offer our clients and patients the peace of mind of 24/7 emergency veterinary medical care.

"Vincent and I have been working with North Bridge Equine Associates since 2013. Dr. Fred Nostrant and his team have always been extremely professional, understanding, and compassionate to the individual needs of our horses and clients. Fred invests in making the client feel comfortable and always takes the time to explain his methodology and approach.

We have a rigorous schedule at LAEM and Fred makes the time for us either in his routine weekly visits or on call when we need him. When we travel for our business, although Fred cannot travel with us to perform a vetting, he will review X-rays and vet reports from the attending veterinarian and give us his honest opinion.

When our new prospects arrive at our stable we have Fred look at them first so we can make a plan for their continued soundness and improvement in the sport. Fred’s holistic approach takes into consideration all aspects of feeding, fitness, training regimens, articulation, as well as personalities of the horses. He is dedicated first and foremost to the long-term health and happiness of the horses in his care.

This long term, full range planning is one of the many things we appreciate about NBEA’s care; their system has afforded us continued success and longevity in the careers of our horses.

We truly enjoy the working relationship we have with Fred and the team at NBEA!"
