Our Mission
We understand what urgent means.

Our UrgentVet mission is simple: We want to be here for your pet when your primary care vet can’t. Our goal is to provide quick, convenient, affordable care 365 days a year.

Immediate Care – No Appointments

Like an urgent care center for people, we provide prompt veterinary care for dogs and cats. We take care of illnesses and injuries that require immediate attention – but aren’t serious enough to warrant an expensive trip to a 24-hour emergency hospital.

Open Nights & Weekends

We’re open evenings and weekends. See our Hours – Locations page for details. We’re even open on holidays. With UrgentVet, you can bring comfort and relief to your pet when it’s needed. No waiting until the next business day. No need to miss work for a daytime appointment.

Referrals Welcome

Primary care vets can refer their clients to us for after-hours care. We will work hand-in-hand with your vet – sharing records and diagnoses to make sure your pet receives the best possible care and treatment.

Our vets love pets as much as you do.

Dr. Jim Dobies


The UrgentVet concept was created by Dr. Jim Dobies a beloved veterinarian whose kindhearted care has been appreciated and valued by countless furry patients and their families.

Dr. Dobies recognized that pet owners needed another choice in veterinary services – an alternative that would offer flexible after-hours care, without the premium cost of a 24-hour emergency hospital. To fill this urgent need, he created UrgentVet – the clinic for pets who can’t wait to feel better.
