UrgentVet Continues Nationwide Expansion with New After-Hours Pet Care Option in Lake Mary, Florida – Second Location in Orlando


Tampa, FL (March 2024) – UrgentVet, a pioneering leader in dedicated urgent care clinics for pets, proudly announces the grand opening of its latest hospital in Lake Mary, Florida. UrgentVet-Lake Mary, strategically located at 446 Rinehart Road, Suite 1000, will commence operations on March 7, bringing a much-needed after-hours pet care option to the Orlando region.

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

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

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 consistently earned high review ratings in the cities it serves, showcasing its dedication to excellence in pet care. UrgentVet-Lake Mary marks the 65th clinic nationwide, and, in alignment with its mission, the clinic is committed to providing compassionate and affordable care for pets – in this case for the North Orlando community.

UrgentVet-Lake Mary is meticulously crafted to provide a stress-free environment for both pets and their owners. Tailored examination rooms cater to different species and sizes, while amenities such as non-slip floors, adjustable lighting, tranquil colors, gentle music, calming pheromones, and serene examination tables ensure a soothing experience. Moreover, the clinic boasts cutting-edge tempered glass pet enclosures from Casco, renowned for their remarkable noise reduction, making UrgentVet a leader in Fear-Free pet care facilities.

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 Lake Mary area,” he added.

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