Featured Case

Beautiful Zoey the cat came into UrgentVet St. Johns after she suddenly began limping on her front left paw following some playtime.

The team carefully examined her (and offered snuggles and kisses at the same time). X-rays showed no major damage so we gave her an injection for pain relief and some additional pain medication for her to take in the following days.


She made a full recovery after following her doctor’s orders to rest for 7-10 days.

Cassie Jones

Practice Manager

Cassie is originally from Indiana, where she completed her associates degree in applied science and obtained her veterinary technician license. After working in a small animal preventative care hospital in Indianapolis for a few years Cassie and her fiancé, Alex, got the opportunity to move to Richmond Virginia where Cassie eventually got to work for a small animal practice and dive into complex surgical procedures and urgent care medicine. Recently they moved to Jacksonville, Florida and absolutely fell in love with the scene and culture. They are proud pet parents to three dogs. They love to spend their free time adventuring outside and doing anything that involves water!

Cassie always knew that she wanted to do more with veterinary medicine and fulfill a leadership role. She is so happy to be a part of the UrgentVet – St. Johns team as the Clinic Manager.
