Save Your Spot

What We Do

We’re here nights, weekends and holidays, providing convenient walk-in service for you and your pet. We treat cases that require immediate attention – but aren’t serious enough to require emergency hospitalization. In most cases, UrgentVet can diagnose and treat your pet’s problem in less than an hour saving you time and money by keeping your pet out of the emergency vet!

What We Don't Do

We can’t keep your pet for overnight stays, and we’re not equipped to handle cases that require hospitalization or advanced surgical care. If we diagnose a serious condition, we’ll discuss other options with you, including the possible need for an immediate transfer to a 24-hour emergency hospital.

Welcome to UrgentVet Pet Clinic – Cary

Diamond Brinkley

Practice Manager

Diamond Brinkley is from Louisburg, a small town just north of Raleigh, North Carolina. From a young age, she had a keen interest in caring for animals. She was always surrounded by cats and dogs and aspired to one day work in the veterinary profession.

Diamond earned her Bachelor of Science Degree from North Carolina A&T State University in Animal Science. (Aggie Pride!)  She then continued her education at Penn Foster College where she received her Veterinary Technology Degree.

The next step in Diamond’s path was going to work for a general practice in 2017. Here she helped to to mentor and develop other veterinary technicians. Her professional focus was to provide quality medical care to pets and as a result, create a stronger relationship among veterinary professionals, clients, and their pets.

When Diamond isn’t in the clinic looking after your pets, she is at home spending time with her two children and her Australian Shepherd mix, Jaxx. Diamond is proud to serve the pets and pet parents of Cary, North Carolina and points beyond.
