Medical care for dogs and cats with non-life-threatening conditions

When to Choose Urgent and Convenient Care

The Urgent and Convenient Care service is for those occasions when you want your dog or cat to be seen that day for a concern that is not life-threatening, and your primary veterinarian is not available to see your pet.

We can provide a same-day appointment. After your appointment with us, we will send information about the visit to your primary veterinarian. Any follow-up care needs will be handled by your primary veterinarian.

Below are examples of concerns that are appropriate for the Urgent and Convenient Care service.
