Comprehensive Urgent Care for Your Pets
Same-day appointments with ER-trained veterinarians
Welcome to Urgent Pet
The first dedicated urgent care for pets in the Bay area
If your pet has an accident or illness, call us. We offer same day appointments for many kinds of veterinary emergencies.
- All our veterinarians have extensive emergency room experience.
- Our Urgent Pet animal hospital is a state-of-the-art facility, equipped with the latest diagnostics and treatment solutions.
What is the difference between Urgent Pet and other Emergency hospitals?
- Our veterinarians all have emergency room experience, but we are not open overnight and do not hospitalize patients overnight.
- When you call for a same-day appointment, our highly trained staff will determine if your pet is an appropriate urgent care case.
- By focusing on urgent care cases, our doctors get to see each patient more quickly than in the 24h emergency room.
- After the initial examination, the doctor will discuss a diagnostics and treatment plan. Your loved one stays with us until we contact you later in the day when they are ready to go home.
Urgent Pet has state of the art technology, including an in-house laboratory, digital radiography, ultrasound, latest generation ophthalmoscope and intensive care equipment, to help us diagnose and treat your pet efficiently and effectively.
Our Experience Makes All the Difference
Urgent Pet animal hospital is doctor-owned, and we recruit all our doctors with years of emergency room experience. Our team has the training for any emergency, but we also have the knowledge to determine quickly, when you call, whether your loved one will benefit from a same-day appointment at Urgent Pet, or instead should be directed to a 24h emergency hospital.
