UrgentVet Expands After-Hours Pet Care to Glendale, Wisconsin

Tampa, FL (January 31, 2024) – UrgentVet, one of the first dedicated urgent care clinics for pets, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its newest hospital in Glendale, Wisconsin. UrgentVet-North Shore, situated at 6969 N Port Washington Road, will begin operations on February 1, providing pet parents in Glendale and the surrounding areas with a convenient after-hours pet care option.

According to recent data, Glendale, Wisconsin, boasts a high pet ownership rate, with approximately 70% of households in the area owning at least one pet, ranging from dogs and cats (which UrgentVet treats) to small mammals and reptiles.

UrgentVet’s innovative business model prioritizes compassion, affordability, and convenience, offering a crucial bridge between primary practices and 24-hour emergency veterinary care. The new North Shore 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.

Dr. Jim Dobies, DVM, and Founder of UrgentVet, shared his enthusiasm for the expansion, stating, “The opening of UrgentVet-North Shore in Glendale is a testament to our commitment to enhancing the well-being of pets and supporting pet parents. We believe in providing accessible, high-quality care during those critical after-hours moments.”

The North Shore clinic will be UrgentVet’s first location in Wisconsin but 62nd clinic nationwide. With locations in Colorado, Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, The Carolinas, Arizona, and Georgia, UrgentVet continues to provide convenient and affordable care for pets across the United States.

UrgentVet-North Shore is intentionally designed to offer a fear-free experience for pets and pet parents alike. 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-North Shore one of the most Fear-Free pet care facilities 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. 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 Glendale 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.
