Lakeland, FL

Featured Case

Beautiful Brandey came in to UrgentVet with a sore and itchy spot on her skin.

The team carefully clipped the area around it and thoroughly cleaned the hotspot.

Brandey was a wonderful patient. As part of her treatment, we gave her some cuddles before sending her home with expectations of a full recovery.

Lakeland, FL

Featured Case

Meet Pita the cat. Pita’s pet parents noticed he wasn’t maintaining his usual potty schedule.

We took some x-rays and discovered a case of constipation.

We performed an enema and everything came out great. Pita went home feeling much better and was back to normal in the following days.
