Dr. Jim Dobies, DVM, and Founder of UrgentVet, expressed his enthusiasm for the expansion, stating, “The opening of UrgentVet-Louisville reflects our commitment to enhancing the well-being of pets and supporting pet parents in the Louisville area. With a considerable percentage of households owning at least one pet, we understand the demand for accessible care, especially during non-traditional hours.”

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. Dr. Dobies emphasized UrgentVet’s commitment to providing relief and reducing stress for both pets and pet parents. “An unexpected injury or illness can be a traumatic experience for both the pet and pet parent. Our hope is that our arrival helps to eliminate at least some of that stress for those in and around the Louisville area,” 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.
