What is urgent care?

When your pet needs medical care, yet is not quite an emergency, we are here for those in-between times when your pet can’t wait to see their primary care veterinarian. We aim to provide the immediate care your pet needs, while avoiding lengthy and costly ER visits.

What to expect during your visit


Select an arrival time on our website or call us to allow us to prepare for your pet’s visit. Walk-in arrivals are accepted up until an hour prior to closing time but may result in longer wait times.


Upon arrival, your pet will be immediately assessed to determine if they are stable.


A veterinarian will perform an examination of your pet and will then provide you with an estimate for anticipated diagnostics and treatment.


If the estimate is agreed upon, we will perform and administer necessary diagnostics/treatments.


In some instances, we may advise you to take your pet to a local emergency hospital and will help facilitate this transition.
