Your Pet's Comfort is Our Top Concern

Urgent Veterinary Care is here to accommodate animals who can’t wait weeks to see their primary care veterinarian.

We see all patients on a walk-in basis at more affordable prices than ER and specialty medicine. Our goal is to get your pet seen in a timely manner and to facilitate the care that they need as efficiently as possible - whether that is going back home for outpatient care or coordinating a transfer to one of our area’s 24-hour facilities. 


We do not offer vaccines, dental treatments, or overnight care. However, we are conveniently 

open 7 days a week during peak hours to serve your pet’s urgent needs.
