Meet Our Founder

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 parents 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.
