After-Hours Pet Care Option To Open In Massachusetts With First Location In Boston

UrgentVet Announces Opening of New After-Hours Pet Care Option in Boston, Massachusetts

Tampa, FL (June, 2024) – UrgentVet, a dedicated urgent care clinic for pets, is delighted to announce the grand opening of its newest hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. UrgentVet-Westford strategically located at 160 Littleton Road #5 will officially open its doors on June 27th offering pet parents in the region a convenient after-hours pet care option.

Recognizing the critical need for accessible, high-quality care during after-hours emergencies, UrgentVet’s innovative business model prioritizes compassion, affordability, and convenience. The new Westford clinic will operate nights, weekends, and holidays, providing relief for mild illnesses and minor injuries at significantly more affordable rates compared to emergency pet hospitals.

“UrgentVet pioneered urgent veterinary care,” said Lou Palermo, Vice-President of Expansion for UrgentVet. “It’s for those in-between times when your pet needs help right away but without the intensity of the emergency vet.”

Treatment & Lab Area

Pet parents seeking urgent care can save their spot online to reduce wait times at the clinic or walk in, ensuring timely care for their pets when needed most.

UrgentVet has garnered high review ratings in the other cities it serves, showcasing its commitment to excellence in pet care. Across its 78 nationwide clinics, UrgentVet has been praised for its compassionate approach, affordability, and professionalism, providing pet owners with peace of mind knowing their furry companions are in capable hands.

“Veterinary care is high demand in most major cities,” stated Palermo. “We’re open 365 days a year to support local general practice veterinarians in providing an option for after-hours needs.”

UrgentVet-Westford marks the first location in Massachusetts and the 79th clinic nationwide. With locations spanning across various states, including Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin, UrgentVet continues to provide convenient and affordable care for pets across the United States.

UrgentVet-Westford is intentionally designed to offer a fear-free experience for pets and pet parents. The clinic features species- and size-specific exam rooms, non-slip flooring, dimmable lighting, soothing colors, soft music, calming pheromones, and quiet exam lift tables. The revolutionary tempered glass pet enclosures from Casco, designed to be 70% quieter than metal cages, contribute to making UrgentVet-Westford one of the most Fear-Free pet care experiences in the industry.

To ensure the highest quality of care, the clinic is equipped with an in-house laboratory and state-of-the-art equipment, including digital radiography and ultrasound technology. Palermo emphasized UrgentVet’s commitment to providing relief and reducing stress for both pets and pet parents. “Pets get into things and it often happens after-hours or even on weekends and holidays. We’re here to help when the unexpected happens,” he added.


UrgentVet is positioned to address common conditions requiring immediate attention but not serious enough for hospitalization. Same-day care for conditions such as vomiting, diarrhea, limping, itching, coughing, not eating, minor wounds, and back pain are offered.

In alignment with its commitment to collaboration, UrgentVet aims to foster strong relationships with neighboring primary care veterinarians. Approximately 90% of pets seen at UrgentVet are treated on-site and are referred to their primary vet with a detailed letter and records for follow-up care.
