We treat dogs and cats. Exotic pets may be seen for pain control, fluids and/or antibiotics at the discretion of the on the staff doctor. Please call to determine if your exotic pet can be seen. We apologize but due to a severe staff allergy, we are unable to see rabbits.

Pets will be triaged at arrival and critical patients seen first. Noncritical patients will be seen in the order they arrive.

Urgent care services include advanced diagnostic work ups, outpatient treatment for a variety of illnesses, sedated procedures, treatment of wounds, and stabilization of critical patients for transfer to a 24hr emergency hospital.
