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. Palmero emphasized UrgentVet’s commitment to providing relief and reducing stress for both pets and pet parents.

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 human healthcare, you visit your regular doctor for wellness and planned care, the ER for anything life-threatening and urgent care for everything in between,” Palmero noted. “We’re urgent care – but for pets.”
