UrgentVet-Lexington is well-positioned to address common conditions requiring immediate attention but not serious enough for hospitalization. The clinic offers same-day care for conditions such as vomiting, diarrhea, limping, itching, coughing, not eating, minor wounds, and back pain.

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.
