Our Services

This allows us to provide timely and comprehensive care for our patients. For cases requiring 24-hour critical nursing care or advanced diagnostics and treatments, we will stabilize the patient and, if necessary, refer to specialty hospitals.

Getting Your Pet Seen

To ensure prompt care for your pet, please call ahead to be added to our waitlist. Patients will be prioritized based on their symptoms and conditions, with critical cases receiving immediate attention.

Cost of Urgent Care

Our urgent care exam fee is $150, due at the time of service. Additional service and treatment pricing may vary.

Your Pet’s Comfort and Safety

For the safety of your pet and our staff, we ask that you allow our trained professionals to care for your pet during treatments. We’ll ensure you’re placed in a comfortable waiting area and provide regular updates on your pet’s condition.

Returning to Your Primary Veterinarian

After urgent care treatment, we recommend that all pets return to their primary care veterinarian for follow-up care as advised by our team.

You can take your pet home the same night in most cases. For stable patients requiring additional procedures or testing during our normal business hours, overnight stays may be necessary.
